Beer vendor uses Twitter to deliver at Citizens Bank Park

    Take the guesswork out of your Phillies game beer-buying. Stop craning your neck to find the nearest vendor and just use your phone instead.

    At Citizens Bank Park, Bill Watkins is now better know as @PhilsBeerMan.

    That’s the Twitter handle Watkins uses to deliver beer to fans with a craving, as KYW reports. Watkins had about 461 followers at 10 a.m. this morning.

     He says he got the idea from a guy in Seattle who’s doing the same: “Just send a Tweet from your seat, and I’ll come running.”
