The Philadelphia Beer Tour is a wonderful introduction to Philly’s famous craft beers. To join the tour, make your way to the Clothes Pin Sculpture – at the corner of 15th St. and Market St. where your local guide will be waiting.
The tour begins at the very heart of modern Philadelphia, City Hall. As you leave this popular meeting place, you’ll discover some of the sights and sounds of Philadelphia as people are concluding their work day.
Like many others at this time of day, you will head to the first “Happy Hour” destination. You will visit some of the most unique, most typical, and most popular drinking establishments in the City.
The brewpubs on the tour vary from day to day but the places you might visit include the following:
• The oldest continuously operating bar in the City dating back to 1860.
• A place where they make their own beer just steps away from your table.
• An Irish pub with a local flair, as well as many other bars and pubs so popular with Philadelphians.
At each location, your guide will tell you the history of these bars, why they are so popular, and why locals crave a unique and authentic setting to enjoy food and drinks with friends, family, and co-workers.
One drink at each bar is included with the tour, as well as a quick stop for one of the most popular snacks in the city, perfect with your beer! At each location, the bars will feature one thing in common with each other – a taste for Philadelphia's local craft beers and breweries.
You'll learn the names and discover the tastes of places such as Philadelphia Brewing Co., Victory, Yards, Troegs, Flying Fish, Sly Fox, Dogfish Head, Nodding Head, and Dock Street Brewing Co.
After Happy Hour, end your Philly beer tour at Rittenhouse Square, a perfect location for you to continue on your beer journey, grab some dinner at many of Philadelphia's best restaurants nearby, or head straight back to your new favorite Philadelphia pub.
