Philly Beer Week 2019: We're All Friends Here

Philly Beer Week 2019: We're All Friends Here

Philly Loves Beer, and brewers love each other! That’s why nearly all of our Philly Beer Week 2019 events feature not one but two brewers. We’re bringing old friends together for a pint, featuring rare collabs that you’ve been dying to get your hands on, even branching out into cider. (Because after all, Philly Loves Cider, too!) Read on for the ultimate guide to our PBW2019 events. And bring a friend!

Our kick-off event is a beer + fruit collab, courtesy of our friends at Bullfrog! Meet Owner Steve Koch and sample three of his tempting fruited beers during our first Philly Beer Week 2019 event. Consider it a palate cleanser…or (dare we say) an aperitif

Check this out: Bullfrog brews both beers and ciders, a good omen for things to come from our Beer Week events. They’re also located in Williamsport, Pa; read on for more on this beer-and-baseball-loving town...

Brewers and buddies Mike Fava of Oxbow and Sam Fitz of ANXO are bringing their best to us for an exclusive weekend Happy Hour event. Join us from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Sunday, June 2 to meet both brewers and sample some of their favorite beers and ciders, including Oxbow Saison Rosé and ANXO Nevertheless, We Persisted, all just $6 each throughout the event.

Did you know? The name Oxbow is inspired by the bends in the winding Maine rivers close to the brewery, the Dyer in particular, which features stunning horseshoe-shaped oxbows where the river covers tremendous ground to travel what could otherwise be a very short linear distance.

On Tuesday, June 4 from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m., the Hudson Valley comes to you with Graft Cider and Newburgh Brewing. We’ll pour a selection of rarities, including Graft Cloud City - Opal City and Newburgh Magnanini Niagara Tripel, plus Newburgh’s ultra-rare collab with BeeBoss, Plan Bee IPA. No need to battle traffic on the new Tappan Zee; all of these great New York State beers and ciders will be right at Tria Taproom, ranging in price from $4 to $6 each throughout the event. The makers Kyle Sherrer from Graft and Charlie Benedetti from Newburgh will be on hand to chat about their products.

Fun fact: Wild yeast is everywhere, including large quantities on the skins of fruits, and Graft ferments with both wild yeast that comes in with the fruit *and* a wild yeast strain of Brettanomyces that they isolated off a wild apple tree outside of New Paltz, NY.

Larger 3 FLOYDS x WARPIGS.png

Now this is something really special: We’re not only bringing in rare and prized 3 Floyds beers; we’re also featuring their instantly legendary collab with Mikkeller, WarPigs. Call it a Munster (Indiana) Mash! And yes, the rumors are true: WE WILL HAVE ZOMBIE DUST. AND FOGGY GEEZER. AND GUMBALLHEAD. AND SALMON PANTS. (If you’re a beer geek, you’re already putting this event on your calendar. If you’re not, kindly ask Google about any of the above, and then put this event on your calendar: Thursday, June 6 from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m.)

Feeling lucky? WarPigs is the supergroup of brewing, combining 3 Floyds and Mikkeller, and their all-black cans and merch are rarely spotted in the wild. (So, yeah: very lucky.)

Larger ALMANAC x NEW TRAIL.png

CA meets PA for this joint event featuring three beers each from California’s sour beer masters Almanac and our upstart sort-of-neighbors at New Trail. We’ll pour both versions of their hazy strawberry IPA collab, which started with the same recipe but ended up in different places. Joining us will be Mike LaRosa, head brewer of New Trail, and Phil Emerson, head brewer of Almanac. Four other brews, including New Trail’s Broken Heel and Almanac Sunshine and Opportunity, will provide a wide range of flavors. It’s a sweetly summery end to another rad Philly Beer Week, and it all goes down from 12 noon until 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 8.

Good to know: New Trail Brewing Co. is located in Williamsport, PA, the home of Little League Baseball. Just a little detail from our Almanac (see what we did there??) of craft brewing...
