Philadelphia, PA - Kicking off the Halloween weekend in Philly, the 8th Annual East Passyunk Witch CRAFT Beer Crawl gathered Witches and Warlocks alike to break out their broomsticks and take South Philly by storm. This event hosted by the Passyunk Business Improvement District was a great night out for supporting local businesses.
Victory brewing company and Troeg's brewing offered a taste of their many concoctions at 17 bars and restaurants along East Passyunk Avenue. The Crawl began at popular South Philly Garage bar and moved south along Passyunk Ave. Each stop having a different beer to try and their own special Halloween styled plate. My personal favorite was the pumpkin dumplings at Bing Bing Dim Sum, little pockets of pumpkin and pork sitting atop a pile of steamed greens paired with Troegs Solid Sender a dry hopped pale ale.
This spooky event lasted until 9pm unlike myself who retired after the first couple of stops. You can find more events in South Philly like the one above at the East Passyunk website.
Witch CRAFT Beer Crawl is 21+ only. Please drink responsibly. East Passyunk Avenue is easily accessible by SEPTA via the Broad Street Line and several bus lines. Taxis are accessible on Broad Street, or bartenders can call one for you.
