Strips of unused World Series tickets, as if awaiting some magical reversal of fate, are kept in scrapbooks, displayed in frames, stored in safe-deposit boxes.

Shoppers across the Philadelphia region packed malls and big-box stores on Black Friday, battling for parking spots and discount goods. But in a second-floor space on the south side of Rittenhouse Square, commerce took on a quieter tone. The Tibetan Bazaar is the un-Black Friday, a place to shop for unique silverwork and textiles, to savor salty butter tea and inhale the steamy scent of traditional dumplings, known as momos, to trade the blare of canned holiday music for the hum of chanting monks.

FOUR YEARS ago, when she launched the first Sour Fest, at South Philly's Devil's Den, owner Erin Wallace was happy to offer a modest list of about a dozen sour ales, including the highly regarded likes of Petrus Aged Pale Ale , Cantillon Kriek and Russian River Consecration . At the time, the existence of these quirky, tart varieties seemed nothing more than a blip in the growth of artisan brews. Most craft brewers were focused elsewhere - on hops or high alcohol. Sour beer, by contrast, didn't seem to have much of a future - not just because of its off-putting name and unconventional flavor, but because of its somewhat complex and time-consuming brewing methods.
