Tickets are now on sale for our annual beer dinner with our dear friend, Lost Abbey CEO and brewmaster Tomme Arthur. As one of the earliest Americans making barrel-aged brews, Tomme's contribution to brewing art and science cannot be overstated. His graceful Belgian styles for Lost Abbey as well as snappy IPAS made under the The Hop Concept (THC) label continue to define what makes drinking beer so exciting. Join us for this special six-course dinner created by Chef Keith Ballew and kitchen gang to pair with seven of Tomme's beautiful beers, and chat with the brewer himself. Tickets are $125 per person including tax and service, and can be secured by calling the restaurant at 215-545-7005.

We Pennsylvanians believe very strongly in rodent based weather forecasting. We at the Grey Lodge respect our state's long and wonderfully weird tradition, so we assemble every Groundhog Day at 7am to catch Punxsutawney Phil's prognostication.
We started our Groudhog Day Beer Breakfast back in 2002; it has become one of our iconic events. The Groundhog Day Hawaiian Shirt Beer Breakfast and Lucky Cat Beer Prognostication is probably the stupitest event that we do at The Grey Lodge, and we set the bar on stupit pretty high (or should that be low?), so don't miss it.
Groundhog Day Beer BreakfastTo chase away the mid-winter blues, we wear our best/worst Hawaiian shirts and have beer for breakfast on Groundhog Day, which is always February 2nd. We feature some very special beers, some of which we have aged for a year or sometimes three. And our kitchen always comes up with some tasty breakfast selections.Once Phil has made his prognostication, we continue the fun with zany events every hour, including Wissinoming Winnie's Beer Prognostication, a Hawaiian Shirt Contest, a Hula Hoop Contest, the Yards Dance Off and more.
2020 GROUNDHOG DAY BEER SELECTIONSBrooklyn Better Angels - Tart, vinuous & divine cuvee barrel vintage oud bruin. Extremely limited. ABV 9.6%Founders Nitro CBS (on the beer engine) - Canadian Breakfast Stout 2019 is an imperial stout brewed with chocolate and a blend of coffees before being aged for over a year in spent bourbon barrels that were most recently aging maple syrup. This the special nitro version, which should come out nice and creamy through our beer enging. ABV 11.3Founders KBS - . KBS is a big imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolate and then bourbon barrel-aged to perfection. Incredibly silky and full-bodied with notes of vanilla, cocoa, roasted coffee and charred oak. ABV 12.2%Heavy Seas Hydra's Haze IPA - because you can't drink double digit ABV beers all morning long, this a 6% ABV hazy IPA should hit the spot.Russian River Consecration - Dark Ale aged in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels. Aged for 4 to 8 months with black currants, brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and pediococcus added to each barrel. Rich flavors of chocolate truffle, spice, tobacco, currants, and a bit of Cabernet. ABV 10%Sly Fox Mudlust Coffee Porter - Rise and shine with some coffee porter. ABV 6.4%Troegs Nugget Nectar (firkin) - Troegs's Imperial Pale Ale has been an extremely popular winter seasonal since it came out forever ago. Nugget Nectar is an explosion of pine, resin and mango. We'll have a freshly tapped firkin on our beer engine. ABV 7.5%Victory Heavy Drop Sour New England IPA - a sure crowd pleaser. This one clocks in at 7.2%Yards Brawler - You can't keep going on double digit beers. This is a really great session beer to slow down with. ABV 4.2%2020 BREAKFAST MENUcoming soon!2020 GROUNDHOG DAY SCHEDULE OF EVENTS07am Punxsutawney Phil's Weather Prognostication Our doors will open at 7am, the earliest we are allowed to open by law. We open at 7am because Punxsutawney Phil does his prognostication at 7:20am, and we can't miss that; that's the whole point of Groundhog Day!We will have our large-screen, high-def TVs tuned to PCN, ready for Phil's pronouncement. We'll have loads of noisemakers to greet Phil's appearance.Fuel up for the morning ahead with something from our special breakfast menu.After Phil is done with his business,
08am Sly Fox Sly Fox Hula Hoop ContestContinuing with the Hawaiian theme, Sly Fox will have a hula hoop contest during the 8am hour. Prizes for the best and most enthusiastic hoopers. This is always a fun one.
09am Troegs Hawaiian Shirt ContestThe Hawaiian Shirt contest is an annual Groundhog Day tradition.Wear your best (worst) Hawaiian shirt.Troegs will have prizes for the best (worst) ones. Best/worst - same difference.Start hitting thrift stores now!... you've got a prize to win!
10am TBA10am Heavy Seas Rock, Paper, Scissors TournamentYou know the deal: rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper, paper beats rock.
11am Victory Definition ChallengeAdam from Victory will have a Definition Challenge again. He'll give you a bunch of made up words. The definition is up to you! Best definitions get prizes.
12pm Yards Dance OffYards Brewing Company invites us to shake your money maker for prizes!
01pm Lucky Cat Day Seasonal Beer PrognosticationLike Punxsutawney Phil, the Grey Lodge's Wissinoming Winnie is a prognosticator. Unlike Phil who prognosticates weather, Winnie prognosticates beer.Every February 2nd, with the help of her Inner Circle, Winnie determines if there will be 6 more weeks of winter beers or if the spring seasonals will arrive early. Winnie's Inner Circle is comprised of her hand picked (paw picked?) menagerie of local beer folks.After the Prognostication, it's time to go home for a well deserved nap. Or have some lunch and stay a spell filling up on aged beers, we'll be here til 2am.
Beads: There are very few right times to wear beads. There's Mardi Gras in New Orleans, but only during Mardi Gras. Any other time and the locals think you're a douche. Groundhog Day at The Grey Lodge is also on the bead appropriate list. If you've been to New Orleans, you've probably bought some cool beads at a souvenir shop (I did), but you were too cool to wear them if it wasn't Mardi Gras. Well this is an appropriate time to break them out.Events like Groundhog Day and Friday the Firkinteenth are too hectic for us run tabs or accept credit cards. On rare days like those we are cash only.Groundhog Day is a great day to take public transportation or Uber to the Grey Lodge.
