Tomorrow: Craft Beer Bus rolls on in Philly

My unscientifically-formed impression of the Philadelphia beer scene is that outside of the mammoth Philly Beer Week each June, there may be no more anticipated display of Philadelphia beer riches than at the Craft Beer Express.

It has grown into a twice annual, one-day "event" of twelve events held across Center City Philadelphia and its border neighborhoods. A bus connects all of the establishments, transporting attendees who pay $10 for an unlimited number of rides for nine hours.

It's quite a spectacle, if you haven't seen it first-hand in the past.

Here's a rundown of each event during the fall installment of Craft Beer Express 2012, occurring tomorrow, November 10.
