Don’t Miss the Big Philly BeerFest

Returning for its fourth consecutive year at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Big Philly BeerFest is on January 12th and 13th. This is the event of the season for Philadelphia beer lovers. Whether you are a connoisseur of craft brews or just love an excuse to enjoy a cold pint, you’ll find something you love at this new winter tradition. We know you’ll be hopping on hops by the time you leave this awesome festival.


Big might be in the name, but the huge scale of this event could even surprise the most experienced attendees. Porters to pilsners and everything in between, Big Philly BeerFest promises hundreds of craft beers to check out. Join thousands of other beer fans for this rare opportunity to sample the finest batches of over 125 breweries in one location. Live music is sure to impress and there will be food available for purchase from several vendors.


Tickets are available for purchase through their website. Regular admission costs $45 and includes unlimited samples in a 5 oz. souvenir mug. For attendees looking for an elevated experience, check out the $80 connoisseurs reception. Essentially like a VIP ticket, connoisseurs get access to all the unlimited samples from the main festival, but also a special entrance, upgraded souvenir snifter glass, premium drafts, large format beers, private restrooms, coat check, and appetizer bites from Reading Terminal Market favorites. Big Philly BeerFest raises money for Animal Rescue Partners, so you can drink with a moral purpose. Have fun and be sure to find yourself a reliable designated driver.
