Philadelphia has declared March 9–16, 2008 as Philly Beer Week to celebrate Philadelphia as the best beer drinking city in America. Citing tradition from the signers of the Declaration of Independence swishing suds to over 400 taps in the metro area, the City of Brotherly Love is inviting locals and tourists alike to celebrate the region's beer culture.
Check the Philly Beer Week website for updates as the schedule is finalized. The line-up already includes brewery tours and tastings, beer dinners, a Michael Jackson tribute, and sessions with renowned beer writers. The special event will arive on the heels of Philly's Craft Beer Festival on March 1.
So, how do you think Philly stacks up to other great beer cities?
