All aboard the craft beer train!
The super popular Craft Beer Express returns for the fall edition of its suds-filled day this Saturday, November 9.
From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., embark on a citywide bar crawl (via bus!) to 12 participating bars, each hosting a different special event in celebration of the day of craft beer.
Devil’s Den is slated to tap a cartoon-inspired draft list and host a costume party — those who arrive in a cartoon character costume will be entered to win prizes. Head to The Institute Bar for a stout and porter tap takeover and screenings of the Star Wars trilogy. Kraftwork will be tapping a special lineup of Midwestern brews and Brauhaus Schmitz will be serving up beers from German Monastery Breweries.
Standard Tap, Sidecar Bar and Grille, Kite and Key, Bishop’s Collar, Johnny Brenda’s, Jose Pistola’s, Pub on Passyunk East and Race Street Cafe also have things in store for the weekend bar crawl. The full list of the bar’s events is available right here.
Tickets for the Craft Beer Express are $10 per person and are available online and at the participating bars. Each guest must purchase a ticket from a particular starting point — one of the 12 bars. Guests have to start at their designated starting point, but after that, can travel to any bar of their choosing. Buses will run roughly every 25 minutes.
