9th and Wharton PHS Beer Garden opens Friday at 5 p.m.
At least two of Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s three pop-up beer gardens for 2015 are set to open by Monday, June 1st and probably earlier.
The 9th and Wharton location has come a long way since it was an empty lot just three weeks ago. Today, we have been told that the beer garden backed by David Frank and Stephen Simons (Khyber Pass Pub, Triangle Tavern, Royal Tavern and the two Cantinas) will open at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 29th. Look for cocktails, beer, wine, fernet and food borrowing from the Italian heritage of the neighborhood.

The warmer weather isn’t the only treat we’ve been given the past week or so. The announcements of the summer pop up sites and festivities have been coming fast and furious. Last week, Foobooz informed us that there will be three (yes, three) PHS Pop Up Beer Gardens this season. We’ll let you wrap your head around that for a second…

Yesterday, Foobooz dropped more knowledge on us: the food options at Spruce Street Harbor Park/Riverrink Summerfest and the new designs at The Porch 2.0 at 30th Street Station. Read more »
PHS’s South Street beer garden is back in 2015 with a new look.
UPDATE: The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society informs us that these beer gardens are not finalized as contracts have not been signed, Ts crossed and Is dotted.
In our Guide to Philadelphia’s Seasonal Beer Gardens, we told you that the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) would be hosting three beer gardens this summer. And now we have the locations and details.
Last year's South Street beer garden will return to 1438 South Street. This season will feature "Bohemian flair" as designed by designer Karen Regan of Tallulah & Bird. This year, the South Street beer garden will include wooden trellis, container gardens, large palm and banana trees and Jack-in-the-pulpit relatives that will rise five-feet tall. The space will also offer public and private spaces, a first for a PHS pop-up garden. Look for beers from Barren Hill Brewery to be offered throughout the summer. Barren Hill will also work with Wyndridge Farm, creator of PHS Cider on an exclusive beer for the garden.
