Every year The Hammer of Glory (aka the HOG), the omnipotent symbol of Philly Beer Week, makes an epic trek through numerous Philadelphia beer bars and breweries until it arrives in time for the opening tap of Philly Beer Week. Each venue figures out a different (and hopefully fun) means to get the HOG to the next location.
Once again the Philly Roller Derby have taken on the challenge of skating the HOG the 4.5 miles from Hop Angel to Grey Lodge. Help us cheer them on as they depart.
Also joining the Philly Roller Derby will be a bike caravan which you are invited to join. Just show up with your bike.
Our bar will be open.
The HOG is scheduled to arrive via's SEPTA's Fox Chase line at 9:47am, The Roller Girls, with bikes behind them, will be skating away with it at 10:00am.
Make of day of following the HOG! Hop on the Sugar House bus (for free) as it follows the HOG. Stay on as long you like; you can use SEPTA to get back. SEPTA's Fox Chase station is just a block away.

The Hammer of Glory, the omnipotent symbol of Philly Beer Week will touch down the morning of Friday, 29 May at 10:55am as it makes it way from bar to bar around the city before arriving in time to tap the first keg of Philly Beer Week.
This year we will be doing a Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy theme. DON'T PANIC! HAVE A BEER! Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect will be attempting to escape the twin disasters of the destruction of the Earth and Vogon Beer Reviews.
Hopefully they can hitch a ride before utter destruction occurs. Maybe the infinite improbability drive will cause the Two Roads Beer Bus to be traveling down Frankford Ave at just the right time.
Make of day of following the HOG! Hop on the Sugar House bus (for free) as it follows the HOG. Stay on as long you like; you can use SEPTA to get back.
Don't forget your towel!
