12th Annual Wheat Beer Fest

What: Beer Festival

When: Saturday - May 20, 2017 @ 12:00PM to Saturday - May 20, 2017 @ 07:00PM

Where: South Philadelphia Tap Room, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Saturday, May 20th! The 12th annual South Philadelphia Tap Room Wheat Beer Fest returns to it’s long time home at Mifflin & Hicks St. This block party is always our favorite event of the year: $4 wheat beers all day long from top ranking breweries near & far, live music from 12pm-7pm, snackable BBQ & sausages in the street- what’s not to like?

Over 30+ drafts will bring you a sparkling array of witbier goodness to choose from- we’ll have a bunch of other styles too: super fresh IPAs, cool sours, pilsners, ciders… & much much more.

Outside street snacks include BBQ chicken wings with potato salad from the SPTR crew, hot Italian sausages & vegan sausages from our pals at American Sardine Bar.

A fantastic lineup of musicians will be performing throughout the day – enjoy the soulful psychedelica of St. James & The Apostles, classic mummery from Quaker City String Band, Blayer Pointdujour & The Rockers Galore, a solo set from Arrah Fisher (of indie pop darlings Arrah & The Ferns), blistering garage (basement?) punk from South Philly’s Los Gueys, and the sunny harmonies of Groovy Movies.

SPTR will open at 11am that Saturday as usual- so feel free to swing by for a bite or to hang out as the festivities get under way. Hope to see you on the 20th!
