Celebrate Craft Brewers Conference and Philly Beer Week!
On Tuesday, May 3 from 5 p.m. until 6 p.m., Philly Beer Week (PBW) will partner with Craft Brewers Conference (CBC) to host a joint Happy Hour in America’s Best Beer-Drinking City™. Held at Johnny Brenda’s (120 North Frankford Avenue, 215-739-9684), the event will feature the first taste of Brotherly Suds 7, a ryebock brewed collaboratively in celebration of PBW 2016 by the area’s top craft brewers; guests will meet-and-greet brewmasters from all seven Brotherly Suds collaborators and enjoy an exclusive first taste of the beer, to kick off CBC and prepare for PBW one month later, with Opening Tap scheduled for Friday, June 3.
Representatives from Yards, Victory, Sly Fox, Iron Hill, Flying Fish, Stoudt’s and Tröegs will be on hand to chat with drinkers about creating Brotherly Suds 7 and welcome them to CBC, the country’s largest trade event for brewers; the happy hour will also serve as a tantalizing first taste of PBW 2016, the country’s largest and best beer-drinking festival for brewers and fans alike. William Reed and members of the PBW Executive Board will be available to chat with attendees, and the Hammer of Glory (affectionately known as The HOG), the official keg hammer and mascot of PBW, will be available for photo ops!
