FYI Philly: Bar combines its love for beer and cocktails

PHILADELPHIA - November 20, 2013

Stratus Rooftop Lounge mixologist Bess Gulliver created some unusual new drink specials using locally made beer!

"So what we've done is take the Oktoberfest Beer ethic and mix that with our modern cocktail sort of push," said Gulliver.

Gulliver told Action News reporter Melissa Magee that they've come up with the name "beer-tails."

So for lager lovers, beer-tails is a palette pleasing way to enter the top shelf liquor lane.

Stratus spokesperson says they have gotten some good feedback on these specials during their fall season and they are keeping these drinks available for beer lovers indefinitely!

Straus Rooftop Lounge is atop the Hotel Monaco in Old City.
