Itinerary:

In our opinion, there are few better ways to get to know a city than over a beer with a local. Enter, our Philly on Tap tour! Discover the essence of this fascinating city through the rich flavours of Philly beer, a truly unique experience for both the avid fanatic and beer beginner. 

 

We begin your Philadelphia beer tour at the very heart of modern Philadelphia, City Hall. You'll meet your local guide and step out onto the streets of Philly, where we'll discover some of the sights and sounds of Philadelphia as people are finishing up their work day. At this time of day, many a Philly local will be beelining for the closest happy hour, and we'll do exactly the same! We'll choose from some of the most unique, typical, and popular drinking establishments in the city. We have the option to visit the oldest continuously operating bar in Philadelphia, dating back to 1860, a place where they make their own beer just steps away from your table, an Irish pub with a local flare, and many other bars and pubs. At each location, we'll talk about the history of these bars, why they are so popular, and why locals crave a unique and authentic setting to enjoy food and drinks with friends, family, and co-workers.

 

One drink at each bar is included with the tour, as well as a quick stop for one of the most popular snacks in the city, a perfect accompaniment for your Philadelphia beer. The bars we visit all have one thing in common - a taste for Philadelphia's local craft beers and breweries! You'll quickly find out why Philadelphia is one of America's best beer cities, and learn the names and tastes of places such as Philadelphia Brewing Co., Victory, Yards, Troegs, Flying Fish, Sly Fox, Dogfish Head, Nodding Head, and Dock Street Brewing Co.

 

After happy hour, end your Philadelphia bar tour at the tour's final pub or Rittenhouse Square, a perfect location for you to continue on your Philly beer journey, grab some dinner at many of Philadelphia's best restaurants nearby, or head straight back to your new favorite Philadelphia pub.

Loved it and would definitely recommend it to both locals and tourists. We got to learn a lot about Philly and also meet and interact with other interesting people. I'm excited to flaunt my new beer history and brewing knowledge to my friends.

Tipping:

While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations.
