Cheers to Craft Beers This Fall! The Best Breweries in Philadelphia

It’s no secret that Philadelphia is home to historical sights and a fanatic sports culture. But did you know that craft breweries are alive and well in Philly, too?

Craft breweries are thriving throughout the country, and Philadelphia is no exception.

But with such a vast selection to choose from, which ones do you try first?

We’ve got you covered.

Whether you’re looking for the best beer in town or a great date night, this list of breweries in Philadelphia won’t let you down.

Tired Hands Brewing Company

The first entry on our list takes us outside of Philadephia proper to Ardmore, PA.

Tired Hands is a well-established brewery that has grown from a garage operation to a 10,000-barrel brewery. France and Belgium brewers influence the brewmasters at Tired Hands.

This trip out of town is well worth the journey. Look for distinctive beers on tap like their Pineapple Milkshake IPA and Dudley DDH. You can come hungry, too, since they have a cafe on-site!

Evil Genius Beer Company

Evil Genius is one of the most revered breweries in Philadelphia.

This fact is made clear by the crowds that pack the expansive taproom on weekends. Located in Fishtown, Evil Genius is super quirky and really capitalizes on the aesthetic invoked by their moniker.

Check out their signature Purple Monkey Dishwasher, a chocolate peanut butter porter, for a rich and sweet experience. Or, if you’re going during October or November, opt for their seasonal Santa! I Know Him! Saison.

Trying to stay svelte? You can opt for their Felt Cute, Might Delete Later – Low-Calorie Simcoe IPA. No matter what you prefer, you’ll find something you like here.

Crime & Punishment Brewing

Are you a fan of Dostoevsky? Have you ever thought about what it would be like if classic Russian literature came to life?

If you have, then Crime & Punishment Brewing is an essential stop on your brewery tour.

Located in the Brewerytown neighborhood, Crime & Punishment went heavy-handed with the Russian vibe when setting up their taproom.

This company serves up super complex IPAs as well as other unique beers like the raspberry Berliner Weisse. Come hungry as the kitchen serves up amazing pierogies and kielbasa sandwiches — there’s even a vegan stroganoff!

Wissahickon Brewing Company

Looking for a low-key family-owned and operated brewery?

Then Wissahickon Brewing Company is the spot for you. Located in East Falls, this brewery has beer on tap in their tasting room and that you can take to go.

Wissahickon leans in heavily to its Philly roots and names all its brews after local landmarks. This is a family-friendly brewery with food trucks on-site, weekly yoga (yes, yoga), and you can bring the dog, too.
