Hammer of Chocolate

The Hammer of Glory that opens the tap to start Philly Beer Week is now available in a dark-chocolate version. The historic Shane Confectionery has handcrafted this clever treat, cast in dark chocolate, coated with a silver sugar sheen, and filled with a rich ganache made from Dogfish Head's Theobroma Beer. It debuts for sale at Opening Tap Friday.

Hammer of Glory, $7 at Shane Confectionary, 110 Market St., Philadelphia; 215-922-1048
