Greater Philadelphia’s five-county region is home to 90-and-counting craft breweries with more than 110 locations — which means more than 1,000 craft beers are out there just waiting to be sipped.

A real beer drinker’s town since the very beginning — local taverns were arguably the true birthplace of the American Revolution — Philadelphia has always played a crucial role in American brewing.

Today, craft beer lovers can experience the vibrant scene themselves by exploring The Craft Beer Trail of Greater Philadelphia and visiting breweries in Philadelphia and the surrounding region — Bucks County, Chester County, Delaware County and Montgomery County.

The region’s breweries offer up tons of different ways to enjoy craft beer — with family and friends, with awesome food, and with philanthropic good.

Since more than 90 breweries dot the region, you need only pick a direction and a day of beer-fueled fun is at the ready — chatting with brewers, tasting seasonal ales and pairing with diverse eats. Be sure your beer excursion includes more than just beer, too, by exploring charming regional towns, checking out local arts, or discovering the rich history of the brewing scene.

To plot out that exploration of the region’s diverse breweries and brewpubs, start right here with The Craft Beer Trail of Greater Philadelphia Video Series.

In this multi-episode series, discover top breweries, pours and locations in the five-county region and why these brewers choose Philadelphia as their headquarters. Spoiler: It’s because our region is home to the best beer-drinking community in the country.

To help navigate the scene, we tapped beer buffs Marisa Magnatta and Chill Moody as hosts of a beer-fueled journey through the five-county region.

In her role as a producer on WMMR’s The Preston and Steve Show, Marisa Magnatta lives on the go — often beer in hand, thanks to her connections with The Larimer Beer Company. A Philly girl born and raised, she’s a bona fide local expert whose enthusiasm for discovering what’s great about Philly is outweighed only by her love of sharing what puts the great in Greater Philadelphia.

A West Philly native, indie rapper Chill Moody always brings positivity to his gigs as a Philadelphia Music Ambassador, music industry entrepreneur and craft brew authority. He’s a collaborator of New Ridge Brewing Co. and Chill’s team-up with Dock Street Brewery gave us Nicethings IPA, a hazy American IPA brewed with pineapple as well as nicethingsCREAMALE, a blackberry infused cream ale.

Check out the videos below to find out where to go to and what to do to enjoy the region and support local breweries.

Cheers!
