2017 Best of the Philly Beer Scene
Once again, it’s time to vote on the Best of the Philly Beer Scene Awards.
As with years past, to put together the final list of nominees, we surveyed the local craft beer industry to find out which bars, breweries and beers shined the brightest over the last year. We’ve taken their top choices and now it’s up to you to decide who will take the stage on May 23rd to accept the awards.
With the increasingly rampant growth of the local craft beer scene, we had to put together some parameters when deciding who was eligible for a nomination. As much as we love the many bars and breweries out there that may stretch the definition of local, at some point we had to draw a line in determining what is actually local. Click here to vote
