Few people — OK, no people — predicted baseball’s World Series would feature the Philadelphia Phillies against the artist formerly known as the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Perhaps some picked the Phillies to make it this far. Interesting enough batting order, decent starting pitching and a lights-out closer gave pundits something to hang their hats on. But Tampa? No way, no how could Tampa make the World Series. Well, pigs are flying through the frigid skies of the underworld this week, because the Rays are indeed playing for the whole ball of wax. So what’s this got to do with beer? In light of the unlikely nature of the matchup, there is a highly coincidental beer tie-in involved in this series. Allow The Thirsty Beagle to expand: Yuengling beeris brewed in the town of Pottsville, Pa. It’s the oldest family-owned brewery in the country and the beer is a favorite among Phillies fans. Well, Yuengling is brewed in only one other place in America: In a brewery at 11111 N 30th St. in none other than Tampa, Fla. Maybe the brewers at the two Yuengling breweries have weaved some magical hops into the beer that have somehow influenced the Gods of baseball. Well, at least at the brewery in Tampa. I can’t think of any better way to explain the Rays making the World Series.
