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!

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.

Yards is local in Philly, i've never had their beer so I don't know how good it is.
