First Time’s the Charm for Local Soccer Champs

East Falls, we have a winner!

    First Time's the Charm for Local Soccer Champs
    In only its first year of existence, the East Falls traveling soccer team stormed through the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation League last year like Maradona through a B team defense (sorry, I imagine the kids these days prefer Ronaldo or Messi) and pulled off an upset win to take home the title for the 10 and under division in October.

Lager, Our Hometown Brew

Lager vs. Ale:  What’s the difference?

    Lager, Our Hometown Brew
    Strictly speaking, every beer is either a lager or an ale. Ales were here first, an ancient brew. Top-fermented, known for fruitiness, bitterness, and high alcohol content. Lagers are bottom-fermented, thanks to a special strain of yeast developed by Bavarian monks in the 1300's.

    They sure loved their oysters at the Hohenadel Brewery on Indian Queen Lane. We found hundreds of shells at the site this morning, unearthed by a construction crew digging up the site of the old brewery for condominiums. That many fresh oysters would be worth thousands of dollars today at an upscale center city restaurant, but in 19 th century bars, oysters were the peanuts of the day.
