Philly Beer Week is Upon Us!

7 April 2015


It’s National Beer Day, and what better way to celebrate than with our first announcement about the 2015 Philly Beer Week? The best 10 days of the year will begin on Friday, May 29 with the annual HOG Relay and Opening Tap, and conclude on Sunday, June 7. This year, the event will have a new app and a new publishing partner to help get you through the myriad events of the week.

The festivities will officially kick off with Opening Tap on May 29 from 7-10pm at the 23rd Street Armory.  Tickets are already on sale, with general admission tickets starting at $46 and designated driver tickets at $25.  VIP tickets will run $92.  General admission attendees can expect beers from 40 local breweries, as well as Leuven on a Prayer, the annual PBW collaboration, this year between Belgian Brouerij Hof ten Dormaal and Philly’s own Free Will. The event will also include live music and a photobooth with a ton of props care of PBW sponsor Photobot 3000.  VIP access will get you in an hour early and give you access to special beers as well as a buffet spread from DiBruno Bros.  If you are going to Opening Tap, be sure to wear either shorts or dark pants, because last year the ground was damp and filthy.

To keep up to date with all the happenings of beer week, be sure to download the new and improved app (available here or in the app store). The app gets better every year, and this year is no different.  It includes updated maps and directions to venues, improved compatibility to the desktop website to help you sync events between the two, new search filters, and integrated social media sharing so you can let all of your Twitter followers and Facebook friends know exactly where you’ll be all week.

Get your tickets to Opening Tap so you can be first in line to celebrate all of our great local beers and kick the week off as a true Philly Beer Week.  As the days dwindle down, be sure to keep an eye out as well for Philly Beer Scene’s official PBW Guide, a print handbook to the week that they will release two weeks before the kickoff.  And speaking of two weeks before, be sure to check back for our annual can’t miss lists of all the events, debuts, and drinking you shouldn’t miss throughout the 10 days of greatness that is Philly Beer Week.  See you then!
