Philly Beer Week Is Upon Us

March 6th marks the beginning of the annual Philly Beer week.

Beer and food events being held all around the city and 'burbs. As a Chowhound and Beeradvocate, I could think of no better event to attend than The Brewers Plate at the University of Penn Museum. At last count, there were 21 Craft Brewers paired up with 21 restaurants. At every station, you receive a sample of beer and a sample of food which has been paired with the beer. What an event!

I have a list of events I'm attend every day this week. I need a spreadsheet to keep the straight. If anyone is looking for me next week, I'll be in rehab drying out. Wish me luck.
