The Final weekend of Philly Beer Week is upon us and that means just three more days for the serious beer geek to get out there and find the rarest, awesomest, and most-brag-worthy Untappd checkins before Philly Beer Week 2015 just becomes a distant memory and headache.

Here are some of the best events of the final weekend that have the beer nerds salivating.

Friday, June 5

Pizza Boy at Tria Taproom

Pizza Boy is just over 100 miles from Philadelphia but it is still rare to see the Enola-based brewpub’s beers on tap in town. So the five beers pouring for $5 at Tria Taproom is an attraction. That flatbreads are half-priced is another draw.

Dank Dark Night at the Cambridge

Are your tastebuds hopped out. Enjoy some jazz and an impressive lineup of dark beers, porters and stouts at the South Street beer bar.

IPA Day at Taproom on 19th

If your tastebuds aren’t hopped out, you’ll be hopped up to see this beer lineup at Taproom on 19th. Rare and local Victory Bell Ringer and Yards Golden Hopportunity among the excellent IPAs that are pouring.

Captain Lawrence and Anderson Valley at Brü

Two highly regarded out of town breweries are on the bill and showing off some unique beers. Beer aged in Wild Turkey barrels? Check. Beer brewed with yogurt? Check.

Founders “Kicked Back Saturday” KBS Event    

Good Dog is pouring Founders highly coveted Kentucky Breakfast Stout and the Good Dog peeps are promising it will be a chill event. Not sure how they’ll pull that off but we’re intrigued to see. A metric shit-ton of other Founders beers will also be pouring.

Sunday, June 7

Cantillon and Cornetto Trilogy    

The Churchville Inn is selling three different Cantillon beers and for some reason are playing Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and the Worlds End all day.

Sunday sees a host of kick the keg events around town. Teresa’s Next Door in Wayne will be offering some of their leftovers for just $2 a beer, all day. Good Dog calls their Kick the Keg event Sloppy Seconds, and if the keg kicks while your beer is being poured, what’s in the glass is free. Capone’s is one of the best beer bars in the ‘burbs and if you haven’t been, getting the leftovers of a stellar Beer Week isn’t a bad way to do it.
