Better Know A Beer City, Part 7 - Philadelphia!

Better Know A Beer City, Part 7 - Philadelphia!

Editor's Note: Part 7 of our Better Know A Beer City series is the work of one David R. Gwyn, friend of the brewery. David has been enjoying craft beer in Philadelphia for years and has led Team VBC on multiple bar crawls (i.e., research tours) through the city. Along with his fiancee Katy, David operates Chateau Bainbridge, a boutique hotel open only to invited guests of significant stature. David has world-class tubing skills, maintains a strange love of Mules, and much like his hero Frank Reynolds prefers his beer out of soda cans or water bottles. For his next trick, David is planning to perfectly recreate Bradley Cooper's dance routine from the climactic scene of Silver Linings Playbook at his 2016 wedding. 

Philadelphia is listed third on the New York Times"52 Places to Go in 2015." It’s just behind Milan, Italy, and Cuba.  I’ve lived in Philadelphia for three years and there is nothing that would have made me put it in any spot on the 52-location list, so I had to assume foul play.  However, after a brief Internet search, I wasn’t able to find pictures of any of the article’s producers wearing Eagles gear.  Therefore, it’s safe to say there wasn’t any bias in this list.

All joking aside, Philadelphia’s craft beer scene is on point...
