Welcome to PW's 50-Beer Countdown to Philly Beer Week! Every day from now through the Opening Tap ceremonies on May 31, we'll be getting in the mood by spotlighting a different great craft brew that's been poured by one or more Philly Beer Week participating venues.
I have a confession to make. When I was a teenager, I had a giant wall of yellow in my bedroom made up of nothing but Yoo-Hoo cans. Until beer came along, it was the greatest beverage known to man. I drank so much of it, my zits had zits. Also, I failed to rinse out the cans before I stacked them up, resulting in an awful spider problem best left for a horror novel. A horror novel that features Terrapin’s Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout, however, is one I’d read twice. Maybe three times. This seasonal beer is a milk stout brewed with loads of chocolate, and it’s creamy, delicious—and tastes like the adult version of Yoo-Hoo. If this was around when I was 15, I would have died by the age of 19 of liver failure. As it stands, I’ll have to hold out for 59. Terrapin Moo-Hoo has been available at City Tap House.
