        “It’s a little-known fact* that Ben Franklin invented a mechanical donkey over 200 years ago,” shares O’Shea. “Every year for Philly Beer Week, we’ve tested the skills of our patrons on a mechanical bull, shark, surfboard, and now, finally, after an exhaustive search; our totem animal: the pig.”  *Not actually a fact
