Two things Philadelphia has going for it: The city was an early adopter of the craft beer movement and has long been an epicenter for great brews. Also, the area is home to one of the most beloved convenience store chains in the country, Wawa. Now, for the first time ever, those two things are about to come together in one beautiful canned package.

Wawa has announced that the Media, Pennsylvania-based chain has partnered up with the Aston-based 2SP Brewing Company to create Winter Reserve Coffee Stout, an oatmeal stout steeped with Wawa's new limited-edition Winter Blend coffee. The resulting beer is billed as having flavors of "sweet clove, dark chocolate and graham crackers." And the packaging is classic Wawa featuring a simple mustard and white label that prominently features the silhouettes of geese.

This Convenience-Store Chain Makes The Best Sandwiches In America

This Convenience-Store Chain Makes The Best Sandwiches In America Sorry, Subway, Pardon me, Panera. Wawa, a small convenience-store chain on the East Coast, has beat you all out in a survey to find America’s best sandwiches. Market Force Information, a Georgia-based customer-experience management company, polled nearly 11,500 consumers earlier this year for the 2018 survey. Respondents were asked about quick-service restaurants in five popular food categories: burgers, sandwiches, Mexican, pizza and chicken. When the votes were counted, Wawa topped the survey’s “Sandwich Composite Loyalty Index,” beating Firehouse Subs, Jersey Mike's, Arby’s and Jimmy John's among others.

In 1992, Wawa formalized its associate ownership with its Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), with stock being awarded to associates annually based on the prior year's service. Wawa was among the first convenience stores to implement self-serve computer touch-screen menus for food orders, in.

Though the beer doesn’t officially go on sale until Monday, December 10, Wawa held a preview event at its Chadds Ford location—the only Wawa location that CBS Philly sent out the chopper—because what’s the point of having a chopper if you can’t send it to Wawa beer releases —and you can see a

"At Wawa, supporting our local neighbors is at the heart of everything we do, which makes our special partnership with 2SP so crucial at our Chadds Ford store, our only Pennsylvania store to sell beer," Mike Sherlock, Chief Product Marketing Officer for Wawa, explained. (Keep in mind, one thing Pennsylvania doesn’t have going for it is that it’s surprisingly tricky to buy alcohol in the state.) "We are both happy to call Delaware County our hometown and we’re excited to team up to create a Winter Reserve Coffee Stout using our new limited-edition Wawa Reserve Winter Blend allowing us to add even more value to our customer experience just in time for the holidays."

The limited release beer will initially be launched during a Firkin Tapping event at the aforementioned Chadds Ford Wawa on Thursday, December 6 where free samples will be served while supplies last from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The first 50 cases of 16-ounce cans will be also be sold during the event on a first come, first serve basis with a limit of two four-packs per person. After that, the stout will officially be released the week of December 10 to neighborhood bars, bottle shops, and distributors in the five Philadelphia county areas. However, if it lands in a store near you, act fast: Only 1,000 cases are being sold.

In the announcement, Wawa makes it all sound so casual. But knowing how much Philadelphians love their craft beer and Wawa, I’m envisioning a release event that’s more like a wild scene out of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Pour 48 out: Costco has discontinued Kirkland Signature Light beer.
Yesterday evening while perusing my Costco’s beer and wine aisle, I saw the usual suspects—the Kirkland Signature Craft Brewed mixed pack, margarita mix by the gallon—but one mainstay was missing. The staple Kirkland Signature Light beer, sold in 48 packs, was nowhere to be found. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); I asked an assistant manager at my Costco about it, and he told me the beer had been discontinued nationwide. “They’re not making it anymore,” he told me. Nowhere? “Nowhere.
