If you are in the Philly Suburbs – and want to attend some PBW officially sanctioned events – allow me to suggest some venues for you:

Oakmont Pub – Havertown – Yes, I know it’s selfish promotion – but Brendon’s been putting out great craft beer for over 10 years at this comfortable local pub.

  • Wednesday June 5th – Beer Quizzo 8-11pm (I made up the questions!)
  • Thursday June 6th – Oakmont Cup Home Brew Competition – 7 – 10pm – It’s fun, it’s free and it’s our fourth year of this great Philly Beer Week Event. See you there.

The Beer Shoppe – Ardmore – You have to see the selection anytime, but during Philly Beer Week there’s more reasons to come.

  • Wednesday June 5th – Long Trail beer tasting – 6 – 8pm
