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, New Jersey's & Delaware's finest breweries into one place to celebrate this tremendous bounty of brew.

Introducing MGK's 4th 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.



There will also be great food available for purchase from  Pic-A-Lilli Inn  and Dog and Bull Brew and Music House

Pic-A-Lilli will serve:  Pulled Pork Sandwiches , Buffalo Nuggets

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, Matt Cord, Andre Gardner, and Tony Harris 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. 

Conshocken Brewing, Crooked Eye, Double Nickel, Evil Genius, Flying Fish Brewing Company, Iron Hill Brewery, Levante Brewing, Neshaminy Creek, Punch Buggy Brewing, River Horse Brewing Company, Sly Fox, Troegs Independent Brewing, Victory, Yards.....more being added regularly!
