This Friday, June 7th, the members of the Schuylkill Sojourn (who are paddling to Pottstown today) will arrive in Philadelphia at Boat House Row. The Schuylkill Sojourn is a weeklong kayaking and camping expedition along the Schuylkill River. The Schuylkill Action Network, a supporter of the Sojourn, has also teamed up with the Saucony Creek Brewing Company on a fun project to protect and highlight the Schuylkill River. Recognizing that good beer requires clean water, the brewery crafted its Stonefly IPA. Named for the Stonefly, an insect that thrives in clean water, the beer not only symbolizes watershed health, but a portion of the proceeds are also donated by the brewery to Schuylkill watershed protection efforts.

The founder and brewer at Saucony Creek Brewing Company will join the Schuylkill Sojourn kayakers on Friday to usher a ceremonial keg of Stonefly IPA down river to a short press conference on the deck of the Fairmount Water Works at 4:30 pm to toast our vital Schuylkill waters.

Following the press conference on Friday, the keg will continue on along the river, this time by bike, to Grace Tavern for a Philly Beer Week Event featuring Stonefly IPA. All are welcome, so come on out and help us protect the Schuylkill River one beer at a time.
