How long does beer last?

Just remember, there are no pathogens that can survive/grow in beer. It may not taste good, but it can't hurt you, so give them all a try!

Taquerias

In South Philly, I still lave Los Gallos (10th & Wolf) as my #1 taqueria.

Where's great in Philadelphia

Burma being a former British colony, I'm pretty sure there are plenty of Burmese restaurants in London.

Russian River cases in Pennsylvania?

Russian River is distributed in PA through Origlio Beverage. By law they get their Russian River in cases, and they may only sell it in the original packaging/container. Whether or not they have any on hand, I don't know. But when they do, they are required by law to sell it by the case (whatever size that may be 12/24).

As previously noted: Pliny and Blind Pig are only shipped to PA in kegs. The ONLY bottles sent to PA are the Temptation/Supplication/Consecration corked & caged bottles.

Tommy DiNic's... disappointed! What happened?

Can't comment on the DiNic's, it's been too long since I had one. But, rest assured, John's is as good as always. It's walking distance from my house, so I'm there more than I should be.

Another "best of" list to stir the pot

I actually like the fact that the only Philly bar on there is Monk's. Everyone already knows about that one, and I don't want my favorite watering holes being overrun!

Bikini Beer--Evil Twin Brewing--2.7% IPA

I believe you are correct, just did it to prove a point. A very Mikkeller thing to do.

Summer Beer Rundown 2014 -- What are you drinking this year?

This past weekend: Narragansett's Del's Shandy. Not bad.

Bikini Beer--Evil Twin Brewing--2.7% IPA

I had a few pints. It was a nice and refreshing, of course it was thin, but it acheives its intended goal. Plenty of hop flavor without the buzz.
As for the price, well I think that's just Mikkeller. All there stuff is expensive. I paid $6 or $7 for a pint.

Marmite in the Philly area?

Any current sighting? I didn't see any at Dibruno's, on Chestnut St.

Beer infuser

Would think it cause the beer to loose most of its carbonation.

I've had beer served from this: (http://www.dogfish.com/company/tangen...)

Same idea, but for tap beer. They were using an imperial stout that was virtually flat to begin with. Through black cherries. Very good.

Best places for adventurous eaters in Philidelphia?

Wakano in South Philly has a lot of very unusual items, I've had a bowl of duck tounges and whole baby frogs deep fried. Yummy.

Shattering the Myth of Craft Beer

@jonkyo, you could really reach a much larger audience on beeradvocate.com. There is a vast community that could be educated regarding the Craft Beer myth.

Dim Sum in Philly

Wokano? I know they have dim sum, not sure about "from the cart".

Citizens Bank Park food?

I always get a Schmitter. Tastes great and for the ballpark price, actually not TOO big of a rip-off.

Gluten-free beer

I like the New Grist, but then again, if I'm not drinking beer, I prefer a cider.

Scrapple

Rapa or Habbersett. I can go with either. (I think Rapa actually now owns Habbersett).

Maple Sap Beer ?

Glad they worked out well! Ditto on using fewer hops.

Shattering the Myth of Craft Beer

Craft beer is a lot deeper than you understand. And if your favorite Chinese restaurant only offer Sriracha, you may want to branch out.

BEST fast food experience I ever had. I give it five out of five waffle fries.

Though they are still suing the eat-more-kale guy.

One Night in Philly Near the Forumn

Wasn't The Forum an, uh... Mature Audience movie theatre?

I think the OP means the Wachovia Center, being that he's attending the NHL draft. If so, East Passyunk Ave in South Philly (though no Greek or Spanish).

Best Beer Value (High Malt, Low Hop, Low Adjunct)

Steel Reserve is most assuredly not brewed with a large percetage of malt. I'd suspect it is around 40% adjunct, as that is really the only way to obtain the high ABV and keep the cost sooo low.

Seeking suggestions for one night in Philly

Third Rangoon! Or elsewhere in Chinatown, there'll be plenty of "no wait" places. I'd suspect waits longer outside of Center City, just because of the lack of places to eat.
