The opening tap at the Fillmore on Friday evening, officially launched Philly Beer Week, now in its ninth year. Everyday leading up to June 12th, our fair city will celebrate all things beer and beer culture, through food pairing dinners, races, games and more.
So just how many events are on tap this time around? Executive Director Kristine Kennedy says she “doesn’t have an official count yet,” but last year saw over 1000 different events at 180 venues in the Philadelphia region.
“People add events up to the bitter end," says Kennedy. "They can be as simple as a tap takeover or a meet the brewer event."
