BY MY count, 152 brands will be pouring during Saturday's Craft Beer Express, a crosstown pub crawl that visits a dozen fine bars. Maybe that's why bus tickets (at craftbeerexpress.com) are just 10 bucks. It may very well be impossible to drink 'em all. So, with a nod to Philly Tap Finder, which compiled the day's tap lists, here are 12 can't-miss beers on the Craft Beer Express: _ New Holland Philly Wild Ale, at Kraftwork (Fishtown). Theme: Taste of the Great Midwest.

THERE'S a brewery in Malvern making superb beer that you can't buy - not for all the money in the world. The ales are fermented with unusual yeast strains, then meticulously aged for months in wooden barrels and often blended before bottling. Those few who've been lucky enough to get a sip say that they're on par with some of the most highly rated sour ales of Belgium, beers that often sell for $30 a bottle or more. But put away your credit card. The only sure way to get a sip from La Cabra Brewing is if you get your name on an exclusive mailing list.

A TWEAK in New Jersey beer regs is paying immediate dividends for Garden State beer drinkers. Under longstanding rules, breweries had been prevented from selling beer for consumption on their own premises. That meant no tasting rooms, which are a significant source of revenue for breweries in practically every other state. The law was changed last year, however, to allow breweries to sell pints to those who tour their facilities. As a result, small brewers are opening what amount to quasi-brewpubs that sell only house beer (no food)

Beer drinkers, take note. That brew you're quaffing might not be from where you think it came from. Red Stripe, the lager associated with Jamaica, is now brewed in Latrobe, Pa., birthplace of Rolling Rock, which is now made elsewhere, namely Newark, N.J. The Red Stripe label now says Jamaican Style Lager. It's hardly alone. The Becks Bier on sale here arrives on trucks from St. Louis, not by boat from Bremen. Bottled Guinness Stout - not the draft style in bottles and cans - still carries an "imported" label, but that's only because it is made in Toronto, not Dublin.

E D STROJAN, 29, of West Philadelphia, co-owns the Victoria Freehouse, a pub/restaurant on Front Street near Market, in Old City. The business, which took over a space in March previously occupied by the Swanky Bubbles bar, serves all-British draft beer, including casks, and all-British food. It sells 200 pints of Wells Bombardier beer a week. Q: What made you decide to open this place? A: We always wanted to be in the city and have a liquor license, and thought it would be awesome to do really good English beer.

HERE'S how geeky America's passion for hops has gotten: Brewers are now using experimental varieties that are so new and untested, they haven't even been named. Instead, the hops are known by a series of digits and letters - No. 01210, or HBC344, or whatever. That's not the nerdy part, though. Hops-obsessed beer drinkers have become such wonks, they know the codes and can rattle them off like Professor Frink-wannabes in "The Simpsons. " Blogs, online news groups and beer publications echo with chatter about the fruity character of this newfangled variety or the peppery kick from that one. Homebrewers brag about getting their mitts on them, then offer treatises on their arcane qualities.

BREAK OUT your beer bong, the fall semester is in full gear. College is all about frat parties and tailgaters and suitcases of Natty Light . Right? Not so fast. For one small group of students at Temple University, beer is not just something to chug-chug-chug. The fledgling Temple Craft Beer Enthusiasts Club actually sips. Well, not always. "If PBR is on special and someone else is buying, I wouldn't say no," said the group's president, Alyssa Montgomery, a fifth-year senior business major from Bethlehem.
