Oh, Philadelphia, always trying to get us drunk.* But as the place that bills itself as the “best beer-drinking city in America” and keeps a beer reporter nicknamed “Joe Sixpack” on its newspaper staff (who penned the great line “The new Miller Lite: The Kenny G of beers”), it’s not hard to see why they’re eager to ply us with spirits. So if you consider yourself a fan of the ales, pils, lagers, and stouts, clear your schedule from March 7-16th to check out Philly’s first annual “Beer Week.”
The ten-day beer extravaganza has over 120 events that cater to the variety of beer enthusiasts: those interested in pairing beers with dinner, out-geeking the competition in a beer tasting contest, dessert lovers (like us) who are interested in incorporating beer into their sweets, and visitors looking to sample the many locally brewed beverages.
*Just kidding – we love the City of love and all of its responsible drinkers!
