The Visit Philly Beer Garden Happy Hour Series

12 Weeks. 6 Beer Gardens. Endless Good Times.

The Summer of the Beer Garden

It’s beer garden season in Philadelphia, one of our favorite times of year.

Beer gardens are the ultimate summertime hangout. Why? For so many reasons. For one, it’s hard to beat hanging outside drinking beer. But actually one of the biggest reasons we love beer gardens so much is their versatility. Think about it. The open-air hangouts are perfect for a night out with friends, a happy hour with coworkers, dinner and drinks with the family or even a daytime hang with kids. And that’s awesome.

Fortunately, Philadelphia has numerous beer gardens for one and all to enjoy. There are the established favorites like Frankford Hall and Morgan’s Pier, as well as new additions and pop-ups like the Spruce Street Harbor Park, The Oval and the PHS Pop-Up Garden.

So whether you’re looking for a litre of draft beer served in an authentic German beer stein (Frankford Hall) or looking to enjoy a local beer in a waterfront hammock garden (Spruce Street Harbor Park), Philadelphia’s beer gardens have you covered.

Introducing The All-New Visit Philly Beer Garden Series

In order to take advantage of Philly’s wealth of awesome beer gardens, we’ve created a brand new rotating happy hour series called the Visit Philly Beer Garden Series. Launching on Friday, June 6 at Morgan’s Pier, and visiting a single beer garden each week through August, the pop-up happy hours will run from 4 to 7 p.m. on Fridays and include specials on food and local craft beer.
