Beer 🍻

Craft beer lovers, Brewery Explorers

Our love of beer and our relationship began in Baltimore, MD back in 2015. When we moved back to Philadelphia, we brought our love of beer with us. Throughout the years our involvement in the beer community grew stronger and we really dove into the craft beer scene. This past December we started our instagram @PhillyBeerCouple so we could meet other craft beer enthusiasts and share our awesome finds! Our goal is to spread our love of craft beer and give people access to the best beer around!

Philadelphia already has an amazing beer scene and it is booming right now! On our days off we like to hit up some of our favorite breweries and beer bars throughout the city, and venture out to explore new places and flavors! It's always fun and exciting, and you get to support local businesses!


Kelly & Cam's Top Spots

What you need to know:

Monk's always has 25 beers on draft and over 200 bottles! The draft list features beers from around the country and Belgium as well. They rotate the drafts pretty frequently and feature some of the best beers around.
In addition to their awesome beer menu, the have a delicious food menu as well. The mussels are to die for! Monk's offers five different options of mussels, all which are seasoned with beer! I cant think of anything better than that.
Monk's Cafe is located in Rittenhouse, but has a laid back vibe. The staff is awesome and always helpful. Throughout the year, Monk's hosts several different events and fundraisers. Drinking beer for a cause sounds good to me!
If you're looking for a relaxing place to drink good beer and eat delicious food, Monk's Cafe is the place!

What you need to know:

Evil Genius is an awesome local brewery with so much to offer! On top have having a variety of flavorful drafts, they also have great food, and a fun atmosphere.
Stepping into Evil Genius is like a throw back to the 90s. They have board games we've all played as kids and their food menus are displayed on VHS cases! Their beers are cleverly named and delicious! Philadelphia's sports teams are hot this year and Evil Genius has had can releases dedicated to their success.
Evil Genius is a great place to hang out with a group of friends or even host a work event! Their tasting room is large with plenty of seating, and during the warmer months they have outdoor seating! Everyone loves drinking a good beer in the sunshine.
Evil Genius is located in Fishtown and is walking distance to so many cool bars, restaurants, and shops. It's definitely a place to check out!

What you need to know:

Brewery ARS is a small local brewery located in a garage in South Philly, but don't let that take away from how delicious their brews are! We've just recently started frequenting ARS, and I wish we would have started sooner. Although the tasting room is on the smaller side, there is always seating available, and one of our favorite things is being able to sit right next to the fermenters!
Brewery ARS is pumping out some delicious draft beers and their can releases are just as amazing. They offer a variety of craft beers ranging from Ales, to IPAs, to Stouts, Saisons, and everything in between. Each style never disappoints!
On Thursdays ARS features a local pizza shop and on Saturdays they feature local BBQ spots. The food has always been on point!
This is an awesome local brewery and a gem in South Philly. We highly recommend ARS to all craft beer lovers.

What you need to know:

Tonewood is an awesome brewery right across the Walt Whitman Bridge in Oaklyn, NJ. This brewery is always filled with beer lovers of all ages and species (it's dog friendly which is a plus!) From the tasting room there's a great view of the brewing facility which gives you a front row seat to the brewing process. Their delicious beers are available on tap and some available in cans. Our favorite beers have been the Monotone series and the Double Dry Hopped Fuego! They don't serve food here, but they have menus available to order from local take out spots. As you know, we love supporting local businesses and especially businesses that give back to the community. Tonewood recently partnered with Cathedral Kitchen, a food pantry in Camden,NJ, and donated proceeds of their sales. They also encouraged patrons to bring in items to be donated. We suggest stopping by Tonewood to grab a few awesome beers! Cheers!

2nd District Brewery

What you need to know:

2nd District is an awesome local brewpub located in South Philly. We just recently visited this brewery together and it did not disappoint! Luckily, we went on a nice day so the windows were open and some outside seating was available. The staff was super friendly and engaging. 2nd District has a larger back room for parties which is perfect because it never got too loud or crowded in the main bar.
The beers here were delicious! They offer 11 draft beers. We tried the Cloudy Giroux and the Wader, just to name a few! If you're with a non beer drinker, they offer wine and cocktails!
The food was unforgettable as well! We both split the curly fries and the buffalo cauliflower, SO GOOD! 2nd District has plenty of vegan and vegetarian options so it appeals to everyone!
We highly suggest checking this place out!

What you need to know:

Brickwall is a new bar/restaurant that opened up in Center City right in the heart of all the excitement! There are tons of bars, shops, and restaurants all within walking distance. We usually frequent the Burlington, NJ location, but we were thrilled to hear there was one opening up closer to home! Brickwall is a great place to get together with friends and family. The new location is large and has plenty of seating. The bar is right when you walk in and the rest of the space is occupied with tables and booths. The staff here was knowledgeable about the menu and excited for the future of their restaurant!
Brickwall has always been a great place to grab a cold craft beer and enjoy some delicious bar food. They have 17 craft beers on rotation and have a great liquor/cocktail menu! We are never disappointed when selecting a beer here. The food options at Brickwall are plentiful and delicious. I'm not much of a burger person, but I always get their burgers and love them! The only thing this location is missing is their raw bar, but we were told that one is coming in the future! The offer buck a shuck oysters on Tuesdays, which is what got us coming here in the first place!
