    Kick off Beer Week with Beer Fest!

    Arguably the crown jewel of Beer Week, the Philly Craft Beer Festival brings together award-winning breweries from across the U.S.

    Stroll through the Cruise Ship Terminal (5100 S. Broad St.) in South Philly March 7, and sample the top selections of more breweries than you can imagine, while enjoying cooking demos, lectures and tasty food.

    From local beer-makers like Nodding Head to niche offerings like He’Brew and Blue Point Brewing Company (hint: we love their toasted lager), the beer-sampling options are limitless. The tasting begins at 6 p.m., and tickets are $45 in advance, $60 at the door.

    Or, rather, they’ll feel limitless; there’s no way you’ll be able to sample every beer in the place and leave the Terminal sober.

    Not that you’d want to. Or need to—SEPTA will be providing bus service to the docks.
