Day 8 of 31 – Stormy Escapes

As we enter into the Christmas season it’s a great time to remember Stormy the Cow. You see, Stormy was an ordinary cow that was recruited to be part of a church’s live nativity scene back in 2017 at a church in Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood. In true Philly style, Stormy was less interested in conformity and more excited about her freedom and personal expression of liberty.  So, Stormy escaped; not once but twice in the same morning! She ended up on I-95 and Race Street in front of a news studio. I know, only in Philly right? Want a good laugh, check out this post. And naturally, she even has her own Twitter account. Can you say Philadelphia is the city of Udderly Love? 🤣

So what does this story have to do with beer? Well, my favorite Philadelphia brewery, @TripleBottomBrewing has a clever way of naming their beers after very specific Philly cultural references. Tonight I am enjoying their imperial stout, “Stormy Escapes”.  While there is no actual chocolate in the beer, this heavy weight 10.9% treat does have notes of cacao, dried tart cherries, dates, and sticky toffee pudding.  Yummy!

You’ll notice in the manger scene picture the cow is missing…😉
