Manneken-Penn is the official collaboration of Philly Beer Week 2013 and will debut at Opening Tap on 5/31/13.
Manneken-Penn is a “Belgo-American Dubbel” conceived by Weyerbacher head brewer Chris Wilson and Brasserie de la Senne owner and brewer Yvan de Baets. This beer was brewed in Belgium with both brewers present as a special export exclusively for Philly Beer Week 2013!
Manneken-Penn is made with oats, molasses and a combination of Calypso hops and European Aurora and Stvrian Goldings hops and weighs-in at 7.5% ABV. The beer will be imported through Shelton Brothers in 11.2 oz bottles and draft. This is an extremely limited beer which will only be available at select bars throughout Philly Beer Week 2013.
The label is a take on the [in]famous William Penn Statue; when viewed from the Ben Franklin Parkway, it looks like Billy Penn is urinating off the top of the building! Combined with this is the famous statue of Manneken Pis, we get the playful artwork of the Manneke-Penn label!
