Dear Bleeding Green Nation readers and/or BGN Radio listeners:
You’re invited to Philly Beer Week’s OPENING TAP at the Fillmore (29 E Allen St, Philadelphia, PA 19123) starting 6:30 PM ET this Friday, June 1. Your special promo code is BGN18 and it helps you get 10% off.
This marks the first time the BGN Radio crew is going to be at the Fillmore since we gathered to watch the Eagles win the Super Bowl. Now we can get together, enjoy some beverages, and relish in the victory.
More event details:
Opening Tap is PBW’s signature event, bringing the entire craft beer community together for a ritualistic “first tapping” of the festival – followed by a raucous party with endless samples. A highly-anticipated night, Opening Tap features rare and limited pours from 50+ breweries and cideries and live entertainment.
In addition, guests will have the opportunity to sample the country’s best ciders and chat with cider makers. Hard ciders have been gaining popularity in recent years, thanks to new fermenting methods, including the use of big, bold hops and dry hopping.
Opening Tap will take place on Friday night, June 1, from 7:30 p.m. until 10:30p.m. (CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS)
