Because Philly Beer Week was such a success last summer, the creators came up Philly Beer Weekend -- designed to hold you over until the warm months and full week of cold beer.
“Many participants just couldn’t wait until June, so we’ve coordinated this special one-year anniversary event to commemorate all the fun we were having at this time last year,” Don "Joe Sixpack" Russell, author and founder of Philly Beer Week, said in a press release.
Beer Weekend begins Friday, Mar. 12 at 11 a.m. at O'Neals and continues until Sunday, Mar. 14.
The Sixth Annual Brewers Plate is a festival that pairs food with great beer and all the proceeds are donated to charity. The First Annual Craft Beer Express is a bar crawl, transportation included, to eight different bars.
So, get out this weekend, it's a great way to build up that tolerance for June's Philly Beer Week.
