Hoppy, malty, nutty, floral—whether you are a beer aficionado or not, this week is the perfect time to expand your knowledge. Philly Beer Week runs from May 30 to June 7. We encourage you to take advantage, hop in a safe and reliable Uber, and create your own Beer Week adventure.

Here are 6 of our team’s favorite spots around the city to grab a cold one:
 

Spruce Street Harbor Park | Delaware Waterfront

“They rotate a variety of local beers and the food options are fantastic. With countless hammocks and waterfront views, it’s a great place to relax with friends.” — Dave

While Philly has numerous spots to enjoy an outdoor pint, this urban beach on the Delaware River is a favorite. Local craft brewing companies Victory and Yards are offering specials on their Victory Summer Love and Yuengling Summer Wheat all season long.





Dock Street Brewery | West Philly

“Cozy spot in West Philly with some great beers brewed on site and some of the best pizza in the city.” — Rob

There are few things that go together better than beer and pizza, and Dock Street has taken this classic pairing to a new level. With a wide selection of award-winning craft brews and expertly tossed, wood-fired pizzas (we recommend the Flammekueche), it’s the perfect place to spend a Sunday.
 



The Twisted Tail | Society Hill

“Between the outdoor tables on Headhouse Square, the diverse beer selection, and the shuffleboard and live music upstairs, there’s not a better spot in the city.” — Jake

Southern hospitality is alive and well in Philly and you can find it at the Twisted Tail. Grab a bourbon and a beer and head to one of the outdoor tables; it’s the perfect place to mingle with your neighbors and fellow beer lovers.

 



McGillin’s Olde Ale House  | Midtown Village

“I love hitting McGillins for a pitcher of Lager, or Yuengling for those out of towners. The beer is on special and it’s the cheapest way to have a few in the city.” — Emily

Established in 1860, this lively dive is Philadelphia’s oldest bar. Located down a tiny alleyway, McGillin’s is great for quality beer, hearty meals, and an “everyone knows your name” vibe.






Monks | Rittenhouse

“They have a beer bible, enough said.” — Lindsey

Don’t let the unassuming exterior fool you, this tavern has been named “one of the top five places in the world to have a beer before you die” by All About Beer Magazine. It’s cozy atmosphere makes it the perfect spot to enjoy one of its many Belgian or French Farmhouse Ales. If your beer knowledge begins and ends with Bud Light, the brew-savvy bartenders will be happy to suggest something to suit your palate.

 

Cedar Point Kitchen | Fishtown

“Nothing says summer more than a Monk’s Flemish sour on the patio at Cedar Point. It’s my favorite spot for al fresco libations with a neighborhood vibe. Awesome vegan food, too!” — Genna

Situated in the heart of Fishtown, Cedar Point Bar & Kitchen offers a rotating menu of 15 taps, including a beer engine and a nitro line. Head to the Doggie Dog Brunch this Sunday and sample the wide variety of Dogfish Head IPA’s. Pups welcome!
