Today, from 12-4, Cottman Beverages is hosting a free beer festival. For those unacquainted with the Northeast, Cottman Beverages is a beer distributor in Mayfair that specializes in craft beers. It's one of my favorite in the area because I prefer to buy beer by the case or 12 pack instead of goofing around with individual bottles at the six pack shops. And their selection is really, really impressive.
There will also be giveaways from several breweries AND free food samples from the Grey Lodge! If you're not familiar with Grey Lodge, it's one of the original craft beer bars in Philly, and they serve some kick ass food. They're located on Frankford Ave as well, in case you want to keep the party going after the fest.
If that isn't a reason to go to the Northeast, I got nothin. It's really not as far as it seems. Get your ass there!

Stay drunk (for free!), bitches!
