French Quarter Bistro to host event for beer/book lovers

What better way to celebrate the end of the elections - or at least the end of those annoying postcards, robo-calls and e-mails from candidates - than sipping a Pennsylvania-brewed beer and discussing where it was made with someone who's rather knowledgeable on the topic?

Author Lew Bryson will be signing/selling his book Pennsylvania Breweries" at The French Quarter Bistro, 215 Main St., Royersford, on Wednesday, Nov. 3, beginning at 7 p.m. The event, "An evening with Lew Bryson," is sponsored by The Spring City Library.

An autographed copy of the book will run you $20 (a great gift idea, peeps!)

(For more information about the book and Bryson's book signing at Limerick's Craft Ale House last week, check out my blog entry here.)

According to FQB's Facebook site, great local beers will be available in draft and bottle, along with specialty brews, throughout the evening. Tasting flights will also be available for purchase at the bar. Attendees must be 21 with valid ID present.

The library is requesting reservations by calling 610-948-4130 or e-mail nmccourt@ccls.org.

If you've never been to French Quarter Bistro, learn more about this cozy Cajun restaurant and bar in downtown Royersford at their website, http://www.frenchquarterbistro.com/ Owner/chef Mark Van Horn cooks up wonderful down home favorites including Etoufee complete with alligator sausage and crawdads. They also have somewhat hard-to-find Abita beer, in addition to a host of others.

Laissez les bons temps rouler!

French quarter Bistro is a nice place to eat. The prices are reasonable. $4.50 for an authentic French onion soup ! Recommended.
