Whether it’s Meeting of the Malts or the Craft Brewers Conference, in the world of beer, all roads eventually lead to Philadelphia. Draught Lines asked a few visiting brewers why this is so.
“Beer is a part of Philadelphia’s culture dating back to the founding fathers. There is a vibrant food and social scene here as well. If you can
create a strong fan base in Philly’s unique neighborhoods, you know you have a brand that can take off.”
“Philadelphia has a great brewing tradition, but it’s also very forward-looking. Both are important characteristics of a
great craft beer community. The best brewers strive to advance the industry, while honoring beer’s heritage. Philly
is a good example of that.”
“Philadelphia is a great city for many reasons, but one of the most important, to me, is that is was among the first cities outside of Boston to embrace the craft beer movement. It’s where we opened the first Sam Adams Brew Pub. The state of Pennsylvania has played a big role in
Samuel Adams’ history.”
