The Best of the Philly Beer Scene Awards are back at World Cafe Live for their 4th year of celebrating the local craft beer community. Join your favorite local brewers and bar owners and walk down the red carpet to one of the fanciest and most anticipated beer events of the year. Due to the size of the venue and space needed for the nominees and presenters, this is a very exclusive event with only 50 tickets available.
Over 160' of red carpet are rolled out, all the way from the curb on 31st St. to the inside doors to the downstairs auditorium. You'll be greeted by our team of paparrazi throughout your walk and you can stop in front of our 20' Step & Repeat to have even more photos taken and possibly even get an interview (could Joan Rivers be making a return appearance?).
Once you walk into the auditorium, you'll be handed a souvenir glass (yours to take home, and you can be assured it will be much nicer than your average pint glass) filled with a beer brewed in collaboration with Neshaminy Creek exclusively for this event. Ticket holders will each have a mezzanine seat for the entire show with wait service available. Following the show, each attendee will receive an extremely limited bottle of that Neshaminy Creek beer to take home with them.
This years show will be hosted by Casey Parker of Jose Pistola's, and Swift Technique will once again return as the house band. Each award will be presented by various local celebrities of the craft beer industry.
As for the most important part, what beer will be available, we will have firkins from: Tired Hands, Forest & Main, Dock Street, Earth Bread + Brewery, Iron Hill, and Barren Hill. The six draft lines will be comprised of offerings from Neshaminy Creek, Victory, Yards, Weyerbacher, Free Will, and Troegs. We will update this list with specific beers being poured as we confirm them, but you can plan on some special beers being poured. The bar will be PAYG.
Doors will open at 6:00 and the show will begin at 7:00. The show itself will last about three hours.
