Enjoy a Craft Beer in Philadelphia

For 50 years, Pagano’s served Philadelphians with home-style cuisine made with fresh, quality ingredients. Then in 2012, restaurateur Matt Pagano thought of adding a bar to Pagano’s Market. He “envisioned a gathering place where friends and colleagues could come together to enjoy a great meal with craft beer and nice wine”. This led to the grand opening of the new Pagano’s Market & Bar on December 3, 2012. Located in Center City Philadelphia, Pagano’s became the newest addition to America’s Best Beer-Drinking City.

Philadelphia has been known for its brewing history, diversity, and craft beer. In fact, Philly Beer Week was established in 2008 to highlight this region’s breweries, restaurants, and beer culture. It is the largest beer celebration in America. According to the fullpint.com, more than 35,000 people participated – in just its second year! The ten-day-long celebration of beer was created by three local beer guys — Don Russell, Tom Peters, and William Reed. Philly Beer Week includes festivals, tours, dinners, and beer tastings, and of course, the iconic pub-crawls. GQ magazine recently referred to Philadelphia as home to the “perfect pub-crawl”, while Esquire Magazine listed Philadelphia as the #4 beer-drinking city in the country! This year, Philly Beer Week takes place from May 30 to June 8, 2014.

So what is a pub crawl? It is been defined as “a tour taking in several pubs or bars, with one or more drinks at each”. It can also be referred to as bar-hopping, where people drink in multiple pubs (or bars) in a single night. And Center Philadelphia is very walkable, so explore what the local restaurants and pubs have to offer!
