Event Details

The Philadelphia area is home to some of the best breweries in the nation. Some are really well known, other phenomenal brewers are just beginning to make their mark.

MGK has teamed up with Independence Seaport Museum to bring Pennsylvania’s and New Jersey's finest breweries into one place to celebrate this tremendous bounty of brew.

Introducing MGK's Locals Only Beer Fest.

Soak up the awesome views of the Delaware River on the Museum's tented 4th floor observation deck while sampling 50 varieties of beer from 25 of the area's best brewers (see full list below).

Each brewer will offer up their flagship beer (a beer they are most known for), as well as a specialty beer (a new or rare beer). Attendees will get to vote for their favorite in each category. The winning brewery in each category gets a free $5k commercial schedule or free live broadcast from MGK.



There will also be great food available for purchase - from Cow & The Curd, Toll Man Joe's and Philly Pretzel Company.

Attendees get free admission to tour the museum with their Beer Fest ticket + the station will have plenty of chances to win free prizes throughout the event.

You can't tour the musuem once you've consumed alcohol but you can use your free museum ticket/voucher up until 12/31/17.

It’s not an MGK event without great music, so the MGK DJs will be providing the tunes. John DeBella, Debbi Calton, Andre Gardner and Ray Koob will each play an hour long set from their personal collection.

Each brewery will present at least 2 varieties of beer - a flagship beer and a new/specialty/rarity beer. 

Conshohocken Brewing Company, Crime and Punishment Brewing Company, Crooked Eye, Dock Street, Double Nickel Brewing Company, Doylestown Brewing Company, Evil Genius, Flying Fish, Free Will, Kennett Brewing, Lancaster Brewing, Levante Brewing, Naked Brewing, Neshaminy Creek, Philadelphia Brewing Company, Riverhorse Brewing Company, Saint Benjamin Brewing Company, Ship Bottom, Sly Fox, Sterling Pig, Stickman Brewing, Victory, Weyerbacher, Yards Brewing Company, Yuengling.

All patrons entering the MGK Locals Only Beer Fest even space must be 21 years or older, including Designated Drivers.

Independence Seaport Museum is located on Philadelphia's Penn's Landing waterfront.
