Phillies baseball is exciting once again! The Phillies have won five straight, and if they win tonight, they’ll be back at .500.
But let’s put baseball aside for a minute and remember those who lost their lives eleven years ago. We will never forget the tragedy on September 11, 2001, and we will never forget those who lost their lives.

Your Gameday Beer – Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout
Today’s beer is Black Chocolate Stout by the Brooklyn Brewery (famous for its lager). As the title implies, it’s a dark sweet brew. The chocolate flavor is nearly matched by the coffee, vanilla, toffee and roasted malt undertones but is certainly the centerpiece in the 10.6% stout. This dessert beer is heavy enough, so have it in place of coffee after dinner along with a biscuit of some sort. – By Brian
