“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.”
