Snapshots from Philly Beer Week 2010

The third annual Philly Beer Week kicked off over the weekend, and thanks to the generosity of the folks at, we were able to check out a few of the 1,000 events going on to celebrate suds in the City of Brotherly Love.

From watching Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter tap the first keg (and get splashed in the process) to hitting up the smaller meet-the-brewer events to the excellent smoked beer and barbecue festival at Yards Brewing, we enjoyed every sip and bite that Philly had to offer.

The festival continues all over town through Sunday, June 13.
