This Weekend: Philly Craft Beer Festival

Back for the 7th year in a row, the PHILLY CRAFT BEER FEST is a true craft beer tasting event featuring an incredible variety of beers from some of the best craft brewers in the country. Food will be available for purchase during each session.

The Philly Craft Beer Festival will be held OUTDOORS under tents on the former Naval Airstrip (just blocks from the previous cruise terminal location). THE EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE RAIN OR SHINE!

VIP SESSION: 12:30pm – 5:00pm Includes an additional hour (from 12:30pm – 1:30pm) where the VIP invited guests and VIP ticket holders will be able to talk to brewers and taste special beers the breweries have reserved for this session only and will not be served to the general session attendees. While most of the tickets for this special event are available by invitation only, a limited number of tickets will be made available to the general public. Gates will open at 12:00pm (first pour at 12:30pm). Tickets are $75, advance purchase only. (Ticket availability is limited). Ticket price includes a souvenir tasting glass marked with a 2 oz. pour line and admission to the special one-hour meet & greet with brewers.

SOLD OUT – GENERAL ADMISSION SESSION: 1:30pm – 5:00pm Tickets are $46 each when purchased online in advance of the event. If tickets still remain, they will be $60 on event day at the door (cash only). Another Sell-out is expected. Ticket price includes a souvenir tasting glass marked with a 2 oz. pour line and beer tasting.

Designated Driver Tickets are available for $10. A DD ticket holder will get a bottle of water. Designated drivers do NOT receive a tasting glass and are NOT permitted to sample any beer. Any designated driver seen drinking will be removed from the festival immediately. Designated drivers must be 21+ and present valid photo ID for entry.
