“Every year, BLOB fans take over the town of Phoenixville, and we’re happy to be a part of the fun, creating fun retro dishes and brewing a special BLOB beer as a part of the celebration,” says Head Brewer Tim Stumpf. “This year’s Cherry Blob is a terrific summer beer, and it goes perfectly with our fun, irreverent menu additions, all inspired by the classic film.”

Cherry Blob is a twist on Iron Hill’s award-winning Tripel, brewed with cherries for color and tart, refreshing flavor. The TV Dinner will include: Kobe Salisbury Steak with morel mushroom gravy; Fried Risotto Balls; Beer-Glazed Carrots; and Peach Cobbler.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
