8 Beers To Try Before You Die

Fri, April 15, 2016 from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm

8 beers

Imagine: You have been banished to a faraway desert island. Which movie would you watch? What music would you listed to? Who cares! The real question is, what will you drink? What 8 Beers?

In this class, our beer sommeliers have thought hard about this question. They conjured the eight great beers they would want to try before they die. These are those picks.

Come and enjoy the Philly Beer School’s bucket list of beers!
