Tom Peters with his 6 year old JW Lees in a Lavagulin cask
A crowd of 30-40 were there for the less than 30 minutes it took to drain the keg of JW Lees.
On hand to help with the JW Lees at Monk's were Joel Armato (New Holland), Mike Ellis (Teresa's Next Door), Gillian, and some other friends that I'll need help with for names
The Bishop's Collar Brewers Run began with a bit of pre-run hydration and stretching (of the arm-flexing type)
Avery, Dogfish, and Sly Fox beers were the order of the day
Adam Avery and Stephen Beaumont listen as Tom Kehoe announces the beginning of the run.

Brian O'Reilly stretches and wonders how safe his 6-pack of cans will be.
This is the "Where's Sam?" picture
Wendy (Dogfish) inspects her piece of leather on the back of the bike.
The National Anthem is played......
Wendy, Brian, and Adam discuss last minute route changes.
....and they're off.
Sam and Adam set a quick pace....they'll pay for it later on Kelly Drive.
Though, Sam seems to be enjoying himself...where's Adam?
Adam seems to prefer biking instead....something about the assistance of gears
The groups strings out along Kelly Drive.
Tom, Wendy, and Brian man the turnaround point and provide liquid refreshment to whomever needs it.
And, just to prove that, YES, Brian did complete the run...even though the group didn't wait for us at the steps...boo.....way to go Brian, first run in 14 years!
Sara rocks Center City as well

Was this a post-event on the calendar? Woody Chandler held a German Beer Tutorial on Amtrak with Christian Heim from Lancaster Brewing.
At TJs in Paoli, Wes Nick (brewer) and Megan Maguire (sales) from Ommegang spread the Cooperstown cheer with Jeff Miller (TJs) to a packed house of Ommegang enthusiasts.
I got to TJs a little late, but the crowd was still impressive for a late Monday night in the 'burbs.
