Default PHILADELPHIA Bachelor Party

Going to Philly for a bachelor party in the beginning of April. Planning on starting with lunch and a tour at Triumph and then... looking for suggestions from people that know the area. It's on a saturday so I'd like to get to Yards, but deffinitely up for any ideas you all have. Planning on staying out all night so the more suggestions the better! Thanks!!!

If you like Belgians, Monk's Cafe is a mandatory stop.

I was going to say monks, and if you want to go outside the city Victory brewing is always a nice stop.

Monks....eh, it's ok but small, crowded and expensive. I like Noddinghead (it's a brewpub) and if you've got a car, there's Earth Bread and Brewery on the outskirts of Philly.

I checked out Monks and their beer list said that Pliny the Elder was coming soon. That's worth the trip in itself if they have it when I'm there from what I've read about it. I've checked out most of the breweries via beermapping.com, but my buddies are looking for bars to go to that night. Keep the suggestions coming. I'll investigate it all! I love being a beer geek, and actually a couple of my buddies are just like me!

There are so many good beer bars in philly.

A short list:

Other Good Belgian Bars
Zot
Eulogy

Randoms
Tied House
North 3rd

All the old Irish standbys on tap, Food is pretty good too.
New Deck Tavern

Pure Awesomeness
The Grey Lodge
* Its a little ways outside the city, but definitely worth the trip in my opinion.

Before they closed i would have recommended Independence Brew Pub or Ludwig's Garten too. Sadly they are no longer around though

If you check out the midatlantic forum on BeerAdvocate, this comes up pretty often and there are some very good suggestions. Hitting Triumph, don't forget Nodding Head. Pace yourself cause we gots a lot of beer.

IMHO Slyfox and Victory are great but having done the phily beer tour bachelor party thing before, I'd say stick to the city and avoid having to get everyone into a van/bus/cars and driving out of the city into the burbs....instant PITA/buzzkill.

Hitting a handful of great places in the city works out a whole lot better...besides if you can't find enough good beer in the city proper, you aren't looking very hard
