Can't buy RR in PA, sorry. RR kegs are sometimes available at Monk's if you are very lucky. Monk's is a beer geek place. Also check out Tria for a good beer selection, both locations are a bit trendy, but good selections. Noddinghead gets my nod for a brew pub with locally made beer in downtown Philly. The Foodery is the place to stop in to buy a few unique bottles or bombers to take home. Victory or Dogfishead are the craft breweries to go to if you can travel outside of Philly. All should come up on google. Enjoy Philly!

I talked to the people at The Beeryard in Wayne, PA and they have Damnation in Bottles and also the Foodery is listed as having Damnation and Consecration.

Well, you didn't say the Philly burbs......The Beeryard are good guys and if you make it out to Wayne also check out Teresa's Next Door. Another beer geek place with a good selection. And since you are in the neighborhood, go out to TJ's in Paoli. Also worth a stop in.

The Foodery website never matches up to their stock. It varies week by week.

Monks often has RR in 375/750ml bottles. You're gonna pay though.

I just had Pliny the Elder on tap at Theresa's in Wayne this past weekend. They also had Damnation (i think), but they definitely had 2 RR beers on tap.
They had 21st Amendment's Black IPA, too.

I have been to Monk's and Theresa's and you can't go wrong with either.

Oh lordy are there ever... Sorry for listing anything that got mentioned already.

Monks Cafe - 16th & spruce - THE place to go for beer, particularly Belgians. Food is great, but be prepared to wait a long time for a table.

Nodding Head - Sansom St between 15th and 16th. Good food, good home made beer.

Good Dog - 15th Street somewhere between Chestnut and Pine. Lots of regional beer, food is good too.

Eulogy - Chestnut and 2nd. Sorta like Monks, but food isn't as good.

North Third - 3rd and Brown.

The Abbaye - 3rd and Fairmount

The Standard Tap - 2nd and Poplar

McGillians - 1310 Drury Street - Oldest operational bar in Philadelphia, a bit of a college atmosphere, but they have good beer on tap.

Other ones that I've heard are good bars but have not been to: Silk City, South Philadelphia Tap Room, Side Car Cafe, Atlantis Bar.

If you're in town on a saturday between 12 and 3, head over to Philadelphia Brewing Company and/or Yards Brewing Company for free tastings.
