One investigator says it looks like the ashes left in a barbecue grill, and maybe that's what it is. Or, it might be some very dangerous chemical. One thing for sure, it's not the usual valued possession people put into their bank safe-deposit boxes. The mysterious "stuff" was found Thursday night in two separate safe- deposit boxes at PSFS bank branches at Plymouth-Meeting Mall in Montgomery County and the Chestnut Hill branch at Market Square, Maiden Lane at Crittenden Street.

Witnesses to a fight at a teen keg party have lied on the stand in an attempt to convict Billy Corsey, a Deptford High School football star, of the stabbing death of a former teammate, his attorney said yesterday. In his closing arguments, Ronald Thompson said friends of the 18-year-old victim, Christopher Bensinger, had been "willing to stretch the truth" as they testified in Corsey's murder trial. Corsey, 18, is accused of stabbing Bensinger six times during a brawl at a Woodbury party in October 2000.

Steve Shihadeh wanted to celebrate his daughter's Conestoga High School graduation party in style - with a lighted, open-sided tent in the backyard, free-flowing beer kegs and an exclusive guest list, according to police. They also said Shihadeh took pains to keep everyone out of trouble. But yesterday, Shihadeh, 48, of Malvern, appeared in front of Chester County President Judge Howard F. Riley Jr. in an effort to reverse a ruling by Paoli District Justice Jeremy Blackburn.

A POWDER KEG of emotion and frustration exploded last night, and its blast decimated a town-hall meeting featuring some of the city's top officials. "I understand there is a strained relationship, but what we saw today is embarrassing," Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said in the wake of a melee between protesters and police in the Lawncrest Recreation Center, on Rising Sun Avenue near Comly Street. When the dust had settled, 10 people were taken into custody and were later charged with disorderly conduct, police said.

To hell with doctor's orders. I've been jabbed, probed and dosed, and they still can't knock this flu. After three weeks of phlegmy coughs and other horrible bodily secretions - a period in which I faithfully avoided all malt refreshment - I'm plunging head-first into the Joe Sixpack Winter Blahs Treatment, certain to cure whatever ales you: Take one bottle of beer, remove childproof cap, empty contents into glass, chug three times daily....

More than six million guests from around the world are expected to descend on the beer tents of Munich to celebrate the 16-day Oktoberfest extravaganza.

A weekend keg party with as many as 150 underage high school students as guests ended in a brawl that left four teenagers stabbed with kitchen knives, police said yesterday.

The victim, whose name was not released, was hospitalized in critical condition at Frankford-Bucks County Hospital in Middletown Township over the weekend.

When they close the book on the 20th century, society will look to intellectuals such as myself to contemplate the greatest achievements of the period. There can be no doubt that the top three are: 1. The ATM. 2. Microwave popcorn. 3. ESPN SportsCenter. Naturally, some special-interest revisionists will dispute this list. I imagine women, for instance, would cast a few votes for the Wonder Bra. And beer drinkers will protest that, surely, the craft-brew revolution or at least flip-top beer cans deserve some recognition for advancing our culture.

EVERYBODY WANTS to know, Yo, Joe, what's your favorite beer? Depends on the moment, the place and, most importantly, who I'm drinking with. Naturally, my favorites are always changing. But looking back, here are my six favorite beers of 2008, in no particular order. Iron Hill Saison Like all beer drinkers, I searched hard for the appropriate brew to toast the world-champion Phillies. I carried a bottle of Allagash Dubbel to the parade down Broad Street in a brown paper bag, but I wanted something local.

The game is part of family lore. Not because the Celtics lost the big one, the game everyone had already assumed to be a win. Not because of the incredibly lopsided score, how thoroughly dominating the Philadelphia 76ers had been in the old Boston Garden, with its fans dressed as ghosts and those banners hanging from the rafters, and with Larry Bird and Kevin McHale and Robert Parish playing on that odd-looking floor. May 23, 1982. Old Orchard Beach, Maine. The day I had a full pitcher of beer, freshly poured from the ice-cold keg that was already being used to heavily medicate a roomful of sad and angry green people, over my head.

A day in the life of a Philadelphia pop-up beer garden begins hours before the suds start to flow. At 11:30 on an overcast Sunday morning, Jason Blacketer was doing battle with mulberries, clearing the spiky orange-reddish fruits that had fallen from a giant tree in the once-fallow lot tended by the Philadelphia Horticultural Society at 15th and South streets. Blacketer wiped the remnants of the early morning rain, from the tables and chairs. More unwelcome weather was forecast.

UP ON Tioga Street, in the vacant shadows of a postindustrial city, the sign above Kensington Pub declares, "Born Here. Raised Here. Still Here. " Inside, there's a life-size wall drawing of a guy pitching halfsies, the stickball game they used to play down the corner. The bar is mostly empty on this Friday afternoon. "Yo, what happened to the keg that guy brought in?" owner Kevin Konieczny asks his bartender. "What keg? The new stuff?" Nicole Kearney replies. "It's not on, yet. " "Well, what can we take off?"

PHILLY BEER WEEK is in its seventh day. But, as Mayor Nutter declared at the Opening Tap ceremony of the annual celebration, only in Philly does a week take 10 days. Which means that, if you missed the incredible Stillwater/Hof Ten Bronze Age at Tapestry's Cirque du Saison street festival on Saturday, you can grab a glass of New Holland's Four Witches Black Saison at the beer-and-cheese pairing at McCrossen's Tavern (529 N. 20th St., Franklintown) today. If you missed Funky Buddha at Monk's Café on Sunday, you can still get a taste of the fruity Berliner Weisse at the Horseshoe Tourney at Bella Vista Distributors (755 S. 11th St., South Philly)

FIVE YEARS AGO, the whole notion of a "beer week" was as unknown as a black IPA. There simply was no such thing. Today, if you plug the term into Google, you'll get more than 2.3 million results. There's an entry on the subject in the new Oxford Companion to Beer. San Francisco beer writer Jay Brooks, who wrote the section, has compiled an online list of nearly 100 beer weeks worldwide, from Alabama to Yakima. They now celebrate beer week in Tokyo; Toronto; Newcastle, Australia; and Washington, D.C. Next week, I'm headed out to San Diego for the annual Craft Brewers Conference to participate in a panel discussion about the beer-week phenomenon.

An Archdiocese of Philadelphia priest active in schools and scouting was allowed to work in suburban parishes for five years after doctors diagnosed him as a pedophile, called him "a very sick man," and told church officials he was a "powder keg" waiting to explode. The priest, the Rev. Peter F. Dunne, paid off one accuser himself and repeatedly resisted or ignored recommendations for therapy, according to internal church records shown Tuesday to a Common Pleas Court jury. When the pastor overseeing Dunne at a Bucks County parish in 1990 petitioned archdiocesan officials in a "very urgent plea" to get the priest some help, they responded by transferring Dunne to a parish 25 miles away in Montgomery County, the records show.

WE'RE ALL nostalgic for those days when getting out of bed before noon was blasphemous and having any kind of obligation on a Friday was unheard of, otherwise known as college. But the World Beer Pong Tournament exists to transport you back to those glory days when your highest purpose in life was to aim pingpong balls into keg cups. This weekend, McFadden's will host Philly's qualifying matches, which involve 10 cups on a 9-foot table. Each team will play four preliminary games with the top half of the teams moving to a single-elimination tournament.

As someone with a weekly drink column who's always in quest of the next great sip, variety in my glass is just a way of life. In the past decade, I've almost never ordered the same bottle twice. The notion of having an entire keg of one beer to consume in my home, then, has always been the ultimate nonstarter every time I thought about tackling home brew. And then Devin and Meg Griffiths moved in down the street. Within merely a few days, these outgoing newcomers from Texas (he's a postdoc fellow in University of Pennsylvania's English department)
