Philly Beer Week is a 10-day celebration of the Best Beer-Drinking City in America.
Established in 2008, it’s the largest beer celebration of its kind in America, featuring hundreds of festivals, dinners, tours, pub crawls, tastings and meet-the-brewer nights to area bars, restaurants and other locations throughout Greater Philadelphia.
Since its inception, nearly 100 other cities worldwide have copied Philadelphia’s success to launch their own beer weeks.
