Philadelphia Brewery Tour

Rich Wagner, Brewery Historian

Please come join us on a tour of Philadelphia Breweries; Past and Present. The tour will be led by Rich Wagner, (, a brewery historian who studies the breweries of Pennsylvania and who has written inventories and gives lectures on the subject. Rich will show us the locations of selected former Philadelphia breweries in Brewerytown, North Philadelphia, Northern Liberties, and Kensington. At 2 PM Rich will do a presentation of "The Breweries of Northern Liberties" at The Philadelphia Brewing Company ( where we can taste the many fine beers they make and take a tour of their brewery. We will leave the Brewery at 4 PM to get back to our starting point by 5 PM. Participants should meet at 10 AM at the parking lot outside of Boscov's Department Store (Northeast corner of the parking lot) at the Plymouth Meeting Mall (500 Germantown Pike) where we will board the bus. There will also be a pick-up point at 11 AM in Philadelphia at the Brewery Condominiums at 29th and Parrish Street. This stop can be used for folks from the Philadelphia area. Mass transit may the best means to get there; the parking situation is unclear at this site. All participants must be 21 to sample the beer so bring age identification. Bring a box lunch because there will be no restaurant stop. There is a limit of 47 people so sign-up as soon as possible. Contact Wayne Brew for further information at .
