Craft Beer Growing In Philadelphia

It’s getting easier and easier to find quality craft beer in Philadelphia, even in a strip bar!

Watching the girls in G-strings do their thing atop the bar at the Penn’s Port Pub, I get this tingling sensation that something is growing in Philadelphia.

Beer, my friends, craft beer.

Over there next to the Miller Lite is a fully erect Yards Philly Pale Ale tap handle. A microbrew in a topless bar – that’s about as common as a 40 of malt liquor in a piano lounge. But adding it to the tap list was a no-brainer for bartender Tommy Brown.

“People go out, it doesn’t matter where, they want something different, something better than the usual stuff,” Brown said. “With the cost of beer the way it is, maybe they’re only drinking 2 or 3 instead of 4 or 5, they want something good.”
