Cool PBW event: The Keystone State Showcase with hot dog and spirit pairings, Fri. and Sat., June 1 and 2, 3pm-2am. We’ve always heard hot dogs go well with beer. We never believe it.

Cool PBW event: Cirque du Saison, Sat. and Sun, June 2 and 3, noon-9pm. This thing goes all weekend, features about 30 Saison-style beers and food from Rubb Mobile BBQ. There also might be acrobats there. Or we’re hoping. Praying. Eating. Loving.

1136 Arch St. 267.525.1001.

Number of taps: 24

Cool PBW event: Meet the Idiots Behind Evil Genius for Happy Hour, Tues., June 5, 4-6pm. Their title, not ours. We’re always interested in meeting fellow idiots, so we’ll be there.

“AMERICA’S BEST BEER-DRINKING CITY - yes it is boastful but it is the damn truth! Not that there are not other great US beer cities - Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, and little Asheville NC come to mind - but they are all more locally oriented (area breweries, West Coast, etc.) and cannot match the unrivaled breadth of Philly taps: beers from across the US, Belgian, German, Italian, Japanese, Danish, Norwegian, if it is good, we have it!

It is not uncommon these days to find fellow beer drinkers in Belgium and Denmark who know all about Philadelphia's august perch in the beer drinking world and will talk knowledgeably about Victory and other US breweries, cascade hops, etc. The beer revolution is unstoppable.”
