Crack open a cold one, Philly. You’ve been crowned the nation’s Best Beer Town.
(Sips beer) Ahh, delicious.
Maxim praises Philly for it’s local microbrews such as Victory Brewing's Helios Ale, Dogfish Head's Indian Brown, Sly Fox's Phoenix Pale Ale, and Intercourse's Blue Ball. Although they aren’t technically brewed within the city limits, they are heavily consumed there.
The story goes on to give a shout-out to Philly Beer Week, as well -- which runs from June 4 -13 and whose proceeds to paint a glorious picture of our nation’s forefathers.
“The Constitution was hatched while dudes in wigs knocked back beer in Philadelphia taverns. Ben Franklin says so: 'Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants to see us happy.’"
Somewhere, Mr. Franklin is sitting on a bar stool smiling.
Drink up, Philly. You deserve it!
