Philadelphia, PA - Locals and tourist can now "tap" into Fishtown, one of Philadelphia's hottest neighborhoods, by pedicycle. Big Red Pedal Tours has launched a pub crawl of Fishtown by 15-passenger bike. During the 2.5 hour pub crawl, riders stop at Fishtown's hottest bars - including 2 microbreweries and 3 with outside beer gardens - with drink specials at every stop.
The hip, new Fishtown pub crawl starts and ends at Fishtown Hops, the new beer garden at Sugarhouse Casino. Riders can enjoy beer and cocktail specials while drinking in views of the Delaware River and Benjamin Franklin Bridge. Then riders casually pedal to Fishtown Brewpub, a gastropub and microbrewery making classic English and German-style beers on the premise. There are stops at Evil Genius Tasting Room, an industrial chic space in one of the city's best microbreweries, followed by Kosta's, an authentic Greek restaurant/bar and pool hall with a new outside patio. Each bike has a "bar buddy" who drives, keeps the tunes flowing and the party going.
"Everyone is talking about the nightlife in Fishtown," said Jessica Nartey, general manager of Big Red Pedal Tours. "We think riders will be really pumped about checking out the neighborhood by pedicycle. It's perfect for bachelorette parties, 21st, 30th or 50th birthday parties or any celebration, team building, conventioneers, reunions or for anyone who loves to have fun."
Big Red Pedal Tours, a locally-owned and operated company, has 5 pedicycles. Each bike has 10 pedaling and 5 non-pedaling seats. In addition to the new Fishtown pub crawls, Big Red Pedal Tours does historic tours, pub crawls of Midtown Village, South Street and other neighborhoods, food and dessert tours. Private and public tours are available. With 5 bikes, Big Red Pedal Tours can take groups of up to 75 people. Tours can be booked at: BigRedPedalTours.com or by calling 215/625-2509.
