MGK has teamed up with Independence Seaport Museum to bring Pennsylvania’s, New Jersey's & Delaware's finest breweries into one place to celebrate this tremendous bounty of brew.
Introducing MGK's 3rd Annual Locals Only Beer Fest.
Soak up 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).
CHECK IN TIME: 12:15pm
To expedite the entry process, we will begin check-in at 12:15p. You will not be able to consume beer until 1p, but you will be allowed into the event space to enjoy the music & awesome views.
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.
FOOD AND FREEBIES
Pic-A-Lilli will serve: Pulled Pork Sandwiches , Buffalo Nuggets
Dog & Bull will serve: • Cheddar Ale Bacon Burger , Andre’s Vegan Crab Cakes, Shredded Chicken Nachos, Hummus Boats
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 12/31/19.
It’s not an MGK event without great music, so the MGK DJs will be providing the tunes. John DeBella, Debbi Calton, and Andre Gardner 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.

DISCOUNTED PARKING OPPORTUNITY
If you park at the Hilton parking garage next to the Museum, you may receive discounted parking if you obtain a discounted parking ticket on your way out of the beer fest (while supplies last). Once the discounted tickets have been used, we won't have any additional available. The parking garage structure houses the Hilton parking lot, the outdoor parking across from the Hilton is not affiliated with the Hilton and does not offer discounted parking.
