Local beers to drink this week during Craft Brewers Conference in Philadelphia
With nearly 150 events confirmed to take place during the next week during Craft Brewers Conference/World Beer Cup in Philly, there's no shortage of places to go and things to drink around town. Industry professionals will be hunkered down at the Convention Center (unless of course they have a good excuse to sneak away) and consumers will be chasing them and their beers at bars all around the city.
I've been keeping a running list of confirmed events over here via this link.
But, what about the local brewing scene? I haven't done an exact calculation for how many of these events are focused exclusively on out-of-state - some licensed just for the week - but my unscientific calculation shows a very large percentage.
So what about our local breweries? I put together a list. I know, I know. Another list. But this one I believe will help you more than the average internet list of things.
Check out the list of Top 20 beers for visiting conference-goers to find when in Philly during the next week. And, if you're here already, you're in luck and have a head-start on everyone else. Remember, too, to use PhillyTapFinder.com for up-to-date draft lists.
