It’s June 1st, and in Philadelphia that means it’s the start of Philly Beer Week! According to the Philly Beer Week web site:
Philly Beer Week is a 10-day celebration of the Best Beer-Drinking City in America.

Philly Beer Week draws thirsty beer fans from throughout the region and beyond, making it one of Philadelphia’s key annual tourism events.
