Matrix Monday at Second Sin

Second Sin’s two beer releases for today – the Red Pils and the Blue Pils

Enter the Matrix

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill—the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill—you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I’m offering is the truth. Nothing more.

Morpheus – The Matrix

A moment inscribed in all the brains of every 80s and 90s kids / teens growing up. A movie that blew our collective brains clear out of our skulls while we were in high school or middle school. …..And it’s back. This time – for a cash grab. Well, sort of, who knows? Maybe the movie will be fantastic. Maybe it’ll replace how bad the trilogy ended. Who knows. Lets keep our fingers crossed on Wednesday when Matrix Resurrections hits movie theaters and HBO Max that it blows our brains once again.

So… do you want to take the Red Pill or the Blue Pill?

Second Sin’s Matrix Monday

Today, in celebration, anticipation, and hopefully getting all of us 80s and 90s geeks and kids who lost our brains in and because of the Matrix, Second Sin is hosting ‘Matrix Monday’. Announced on December 15th, that they will be hosting Matrix Monday at their brewery today – December 20th, 2021.

Their initial Facebook post showed the poster of the two new Pilsners they are releasing with a brief intro to what the event will be:

Join us at the brewery on Matrix Monday (12/20/21 at 5pm) for this double release and see how deep the Pilsner Rabbit Hole goes.#craftbeer#beer#drinkinbucksco#secondsin#beerstagram#instabeer#visitbuckscounty#visitphilly#breweriesinpa#drinklocal#buckscounty#candrop#matrix#lager#pilsner#thechoiceisyours

Yesterday they provided a bit more information on today’s event in another Facebook post:

You taste the Blue Pils, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe you had a delicious Italian Pilsner. You taste the Red Pils, you stay in wonderland, and I show you how deep the lager rabbit hole goes.⠀⠀

We’ll be open at 5pm for Matrix Monday. Stop in, enjoy these two releases, and catch up on the original trilogy before the new movie is released. Both beers will be available for preorder starting at noon tomorrow.⠀

Both the Blue Pils and the Red Pils is listed already on Untappd. Their descriptions are:

Beer: Blue Pils
Brewery: Second Sin Brewing Company
Style: Pilsner – Italian
ABV: 5.7%
IBU: None
Untappd Description: Blue Pils – Italian-Style Pilsner – Unfortunately, no one can be told what an Italian Pilsner is. You have to drink one for yourself…but I guess we can try. This beer starts with a simple, clean Pilsner base that is gently dry hopped twice with Halltertau and Loral, for a lovely floral hop character that is a nice change of pace from our other hoppy offerings.

Beer: Red Pils
Brewery: Second Sin Brewing Company
Style: Pilsner – Other
ABV: 5.6%
IBU: None
Untappd Description: Red Pils – American Dry Hopped Pilsner – As unbelievable as some (us included) may find it, there are people out there that don’t like lagers, and more specifically, pilsners. Well this one is for them. We start with a crisp Pilsner and hop it in the kettle and dry hop with Hallertau Blanc, Citra, and Mosaic for a twist on a great style. If you’re a hop head that doesn’t really care for lagers…Drink the Red Pils, and we’ll show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.

So What Will It Be?

Will you take the Blue Pill and wake back up in your bed in the morning? Maybe a slight hangover. Maybe not. And go about your day as if nothings ever been changed and not knowing about the true reality behind it all….. or…. do you take that Red Pill and dive deep into the Pilsners, the Lagers, and the myriad of other beers that Second Sin has to offer?


Do you have both? And then continue to have every other beer Second Sin has to offer at their brewery?

See you today for Matrix Monday at Second Sin to find out!

Thanks For Reading

This is probably the first post I’ve done with this many YouTube clips or videos embedded. Hopefully all that coding junk and HTML and javascript and WordPress and other high – falutin techy sounding words all work out right. Fingers crossed. Don’t want the Matrix to break down on us now do we? (See…. see what I did there? Get it….?)

Anyway, thanks for reading as always. Always love to hear from you guys. Will you be going to the Matrix Monday event today at Second Sin Brewery?

2021 is just about wrapped up and things are getting a bit busy and hectic around here at The Beer Thrillers headquarters. But 2022 is really looking to be an exciting year. (Finally after the last two years!) Lots of new and exciting things here, and a pretty varied and wide range of things will be happening. (More beer reviews, more beer travels, more travelogues and brewery reviews, podcasts, board game and card game streaming, more video game streaming and meet ups, book reviews, hikes and hike reviews, and lots and lots more beer and brewery news and notes.) We will also be pumping up our home brewing next year and will be doing a lot more articles and news and notes on that as well (with home brewing videos too!). Also hop growing, and all kinds of other things. So 2022 is really looking to be fun and exciting! I can’t wait!

As always though, thanks for reading. Let us know what you thought of this article, of Second Sin Brewing, of The Matrix, etc. Are you looking forward to the new movie? What did you think of the original trilogy? Excited for it all or just ‘bleh’ to it? Let us know!

Cheers everyone!
