To honor Beastie Boys’ Adam “MCA” Yauch’s August 5th birthday, Lee Porter conducted the 3rd annual Beastie Boys-inspired food and drink tour. That tour landed at ASB, to which we ourselves were honored.
“Of course, we had to swing by American Sardine Bar in the Point Breeze area, just like we did last year. ASB’s owner is a huge Beastie Boys fan, and rumor has it that he used the Beastie Boys as inspiration when selecting the bar’s name, theme and menu. Indeed, sardines are always on the menu, and an opened, sardine can sculpture, high above the front door, greets customers as they enter. We first ordered up a couple sardine sandwiches, some fried sardines and some American Sardine Ale (brewed by Manayunk Brewing Company).”
