Instant Philly Beer Collectible!

Okay, it isn't Baltimore, but I do more work with transportation/railroad work/history than beer work, and work with the Baltimore Streetcar Museum. I HAVE to laugh (story courtesy AP):

Philly transit agency sells pass with photo of NYC

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia's primary mass transit agency is embarrassed about a discount pass it sold that features a picture of New York City.

The pass is marked with the logo for Philly Beer Week, a festival celebrating local breweries and taverns. The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority is selling the pass to discourage people from driving from one event to another during the festival.

A spokeswoman for the agency, Jerri Williams, says transit officials liked the look of the pass but didn't realize the stock photo was of the wrong city. New passes are being printed.
