When

Where

Laurel Hill West and then East

Philadelphia is known as one of the best beer-drinking cities in the country and earned this reputation for many reasons. This walking tour will focus on the history of beer in our great city and the permanent residents of Laurel Hill West and East, who produced, distributed, and enjoyed it. Led by award-winning homebrewer and certified beer judge, Mike Lewandowski, the tour will conclude with a toast and sampling of local beers and snacks!

This tour will begin at Laurel Hill West and all participants will drive to Laurel Hill East for the second portion of the tour and tasting.
