The award-winning Philly Craft Beer Festival, the event Forbes Traveler called one of the “Top 10 Beer Festivals in America” will return to the Navy Yard on March 5, 2016 for another great celebration of craft beer and brewing. More than 75 of the best craft breweries from around the block, around the country, and around the globe will be on hand to offer samples of their finest brewing achievements to event attendees at two sessions, a VIP session and a General Session. The VIP Session offers serious beer enthusiasts and extra hour and an opportunity to taste some rare and highly desirable beers that will not be poured during the general session.
The event takes place outdoors under tents, rain or shine.
The pay-one-price admission fee includes a souvenir tasting glass and the freedom to sample beer from any of the 75+ breweries exhibiting at the festival, free onsite parking, free shuttle bus transportation between the Navy Yard and the Broad & Pattison SEPTA stop.
Beer Fest TICKETS are on sale soon and, like the last 9 years, another sell-out is expected. There are two sessions offered: VIP Session from 12:30-5:00pm ($75) and a General Session from 1:30-5:00pm ($46). There is a limited number of VIP tickets available to the general public. Check out the BREWERY list, check back often for updates.
A variety of local FOOD TRUCKS will have food for sale at the event—you’ll enjoy everything from cheese curds and burgers to sandwiches and wood-fired pizza.
