Philadelphia’s Bespoke Craft Beer

Summer Love Ale
Philadelphia is quietly establishing itself as one of the top craft-beer cities in the country. To help get the word out, the tourism board teamed up with Victoria Brewing Company to create the city’s own limited-edition craft beer called Summer Love Ale. It was so popular that Victory brewed a second batch, which they were nice enough to ship up this week to share with New York City. I had a chance to taste it last night at the Victoria Tap Takeover at NYC craft-beer mecca the Blind Tiger. The delicious golden ale—made with pale malts, German hops and Brandywine Creek water—is also on tap for a limited time at other great NYC beer bars like the Pony Bar , Bierkraft and Swift, as well as at Whole Foods on the Bowery.
