They say Philadelphia is the best beer city in the country.
So, after doing very little to celebrate the city’s noted Beer Week last year, I knew I had to get into the game this year.
I got the chance to get inside the Philadelphia Brewing Co. on Amber St. in Kensington, drink free beer (with tips) and eat free Philly hot pretzels. It was its first year anniversary party and their new Shackimaximum draft only craft beer is flavorful though heavy.
Below see Mayor Michael Nutter tap the inaugural keg last year.
