Default Good beers to try in Philly?

Hey HBTers,

I'm going to be in Philadelphia for a few days on business and would love recommendations for any beers I should try while I'm up there. I assume Yeungling is one, but looking for less well-known breweries as well.

I probably won't get a chance to visit a brewery, but what about brewpubs? Or just stuff on tap locally?

Thanks!

The cans of Leinenkugel's had masking tape on them with JOHN'S printed in ink. Amy looked around me and said, "John is protective about his beer, isn't he?"

On Tap:
Anna Livia Irish Stout
Gondor IPA
Melancholy Bill's Infinitely Sad Pumpkin Ale
Lucian's Landing Ginger Metheglin

Victory, if you have a car Victory has great food and awesome beer it's about 40 minutes from center city Philly. But it can be found all over the city.
