The Hammer of Glory Relay

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

marks the kick-off of Philly Beer Week 2013!

the Hammer will travel through the city from bar to bar…by bike, flaming pogo stick or other conveyance until it arrives at the Opening Tap ceremony where Mayor Nutter will use it to tap the official first keg.

There’s no better way to start your celebration than to join us at Standard Tap at noon Friday 5/31 as we send the Hammer on its way.


Get ready for Philly Beer Week 2013!

Victory Tap Takeover

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

On September 15, the Drink Philly team will launch the world’s first and only HINDENFIRKIN off a platform over the Delaware River as part of the Red Bull Flugtag competition. In order to get their spirits up for this amazing feat, they’ll throw a Flugtag team launch party on Wednesday, September 12 at Standard Tap.

Come join us from 5–10 PM to meet Team Drink Philly while drinking fantastic Victory Brewing beer. Victory will be taking over the taps, bringing no less than 11 different brews, including a special firkin of Hop Devil (tapped at 6 PM) and a cask of Uncle Teddy’s Bitter. Check out the preliminary beer lineup below.

Team member Greg Lehman, Victory sales rep, will be on hand to chat about all the beer. Plus, you’ll get a chance to sign the HINDENFIRKIN and get your picture taken with the rare and amazing craft. At 7 PM, Standard Tap owner William Reed will reprise his Philly Beer Week role as the Beer Pope and will christen the HINDENFIRKIN with a bottle of Victory beer.

So come out to wish them well and have your name attached to this piece of Philadelphia Red Bull Flugtag history. The first 20 people through the door will receive free Drink Philly T-shirts. See you here!

Preliminary beer lineup:

Hop Devil Firkin
Braumeister Pils
CBC Bavarian Polaris IPA
Headwaters Pale Ale
Mad King’s Weiss
Donnybrook Stout (Nitro)
