Duh: Philly Is One Of America’s Best Beer Towns

Via CBS Philly comes news that CNN Travel has named Philadelphia to its list of eight best “beer cities” in the country. Which, duh, right?

“Philadelphia is a beer explorer’s must-see town, despite state controls that regulate purchases of packaged beer,” the site reports, citing Yards Philadelphia Pale Ale and Victory Hop Devil IPA as the best local brews. Additionally:

Philly Beer Week is the city’s most hoppening event, but the Greater Northeast Philadelphia Beer Festival, begun in 2011, is already proving a worthy companion. One caveat to all this beer-fueled euphoria: complicated state controls regulate the purchase of packaged beer. Don’t let them kill your buzz.

Philly came in sixth on the list. Portland, San Francisco, and San Diego were the top three.
