2nd Story Brewing Company

As the calendar turns to 2016, I still have some 2015 beer adventures to blog…this one is an entry for my beer travelogue.

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania, November 2015 — The beer highlight of my meeting in Philadelphia was my visit to 2nd Story Brewing Company. I liked it so much, I went twice!

The beer chalkboard isn’t a great picture – I hate it when brewpub chalkboards are ill-lit for photographs. But I wanted to include it in this post because I liked the “Where the Wild Brews Are” theme.

With the closing of my old stand-by Nodding Head, I can see 2nd Story becoming my new downtown Philly go-to brewpub!
