Monday, March 2 – The Princess Bride
Philly Beer Week - Sponsored by PW, the second-annual Philly Beer Week, which celebrates the city’s vibrant beer culture, will take place from March 6-15, 2009. “Philadelphia is, without a doubt, the best beer-drinking city in America,” says noted author Don Russell aka Joe Sixpack. “It’s so exciting to finally be able to embrace this important part of our regional culture in such a diverse, fun-filled way. Everyone, from amateur drinkers to advanced home-brewers, will find something to interest them during Philly Beer Week.” This year will feature over 400 events at over 100 venues including 5 major beer festivals. Buy your tickets NOW to the events you want to attend before they sell out.
