Ready For Beer!

Craig LaBan previews Philly Beer Week from the geek to the ridiculous.

That the region can support such a mega-festival – with the largest event already sold out – is a testament to the deep well of passion in Philly’s beer culture, which has also been one of the most dynamic facets of the restaurant scene in the last few years.
