For seven years now we’ve polled bartenders, beer reps, booze writers and professional drinkers of all stripes, and asked them to pick their most-loved bars in the area. We then add our own favorites, do a little cocktail-napkin math and come up with the 50 Best Bars in Philadelphia. This year the Best Bars list includes dives, gastropubs, cocktail lounges and even an awesome little spot in Port Richmond.

This year’s list features a new number one bar, but that’s far from the only interesting tidbit on the list.

Heady Topper Comes to Philadelphia

heady-topper-400The Alchemist Brewery in Vermont is considered by many as one of the best breweries in the United States and its Heady Topper as one of the top beers in the world. In fact, it’s currently ranked number one by Beer Advocate.

And for one of the first times ever, Heady Topper will be available in Philadelphia beyond the cans your friends brought back from their ski trip.

According to the Alchemist’s Facebook page, John Kimmich and Joel Hartman of Alchemist are coming to Philadelphia today with a truck full of Heady Topper. They’ve announced that the beer will be available at five bars around happy hour this evening.

As of now we can confirm that Heady Topper will be pouring at Monk's Cafe around 6 pm. Each can will be $6. The beer will also be available tonight at 6 pm at Strangeloves for $7.
