We asked 25 of the city’s best chefs, bartenders, beer geeks, cork dorks and professional drinkers to weigh in on the best bars in Philly. Here, in order, are the 50 best places to drink in a city made for drinking. Philadelphia, meet the 50 Best Bars Class of 2014.
13 bars are new to the list from last year.
18 bars have been on the list for all six years we’ve compiled it.
Another 4 bars have been on the Best Bars list at least 5 years.
As if there needs to be a reason to celebrate SPAM–the world’s favorite canned meat product–a team of chefs and troublemakers have determined that next Wednesday, August 27, should be a day devoted to the greater glories of Hormel’s wonder-meat.
And so, on that night, at American Sardine Bar, there’s going to be a SPAM party. Photographer Neal Santos, food writer and man-about-town Drew Lazor and chef Scott Schroeder will be “expressing [their] hermetically sealed love” with an a la carte spread of “original SPAM-centric snacks.” Oh, and if that’s not enough, these three somehow managed to convince the good people at SPAM headquarters to ship them out a bunch of rare, weird or locally unavailable varities of SPAM, like hot-and-spicy SPAM, teriyaki jalapeno SPAM and bacon-flavored SPAM.
So you're already excited, right? I know you are. And you're going to be even more into it when you see the menu that the guys are putting together.

It appears that this year’s supply of Russian River Pliny the Younger has just about run dry. Philly Tap Finder’s last published tapping happened just a few hours ago. But since this is Philadelphia, our taps certainly haven’t run dry of great and in several cases, rare beer.
Bishop’s Collar, which poured the city’s last known keg of Pliny still has plenty of great IPAs pouring and is worth a trip today. The Sidecar’s monthly High Gravity Night is also tonight and includes high alcohol favorites like Bear Republic Apex, Bell’s Hopslam and Mikkeller Monk’s Elixr.
