Beers at Bar Ferdinand (Philly Beer Week 2010)

The first Sunday of Philly Beer Week 2010 saw a number of Sunday brunch bars getting in on the action.  in Northern Liberties, two bars(Bar Ferdinand and Camino Real) rocked outdoor seating and music on the Liberties Walk.  Paella and ribs were the foods of choice outside with beer specials from Victory Brewing.  Here are some of the beers sampled:

Southern Tier Heavy Weizen Imperial Wheat Ale:
Wheat beer on steroids. The richest weizen on record, Heavy Weizen is dry, then sweet, then dry again. Delish as can be, but not quite as refreshing or accessible as your typical wheat brew. This beer is just short of a wheat-wine style ale (Weyerbacher 14 and Smuttynose Wheat Wine are a bit richer and boozier) and is meant to be enjoyed slowly.

(From the VP) Weyerbacher Double Simcoe IPA:
At 9% abv, it's not too boozy.  It fills your mouth with light hoppiness.  Hoppy, hoppy, yum, yum, with a lingering sweetness.  Don't know if I have ever had this on tap before.  Normally, I get this in a bottle.  Very nice.
