That's right...a whole dam week devoted to beer in Philly!

Greetings from Philly Beer Week, a celebration of the Best Beer Drinking City in America.

That's right: The Best.

We want you to join us in a toast of our city's unique beer culture with an unprecedented 10 straight days of festivals, dinners, special events, tours and meet-and-greets at dozens of area restaurants, taverns and other venues.

Mark your calendars now. Philly Beer Week is March 7-16, 2008.

Philadelphia's beer culture stretches back to the days when William Penn opened his first brewery in town, through the decades when Philadelphia was the brewing capital of America and into the 21st century, an era when Philadelphia is rightly lauded as an exciting, diverse beer-drinking town.

How big is Philly beer?

* Nearly every local craft brewer reported double-digit growth last year.
* We drink more Belgian ale than Brussels.
* Thousands of visitors travel to Philadelphia every year just to hoist a glass.
* It employs no fewer than 16,000 workers, produces $422 million in wages and $122 million in taxes.

Philly Beer Week will celebrate all of this more. Come join us.
