Philly food is so much more than cheesesteaks. Let us show you.
Let’s face it: while you’re drinking your face off all week, you’re going to need to balance that out with some food to keep you from completely giving in to alcohol poisoning. We’ve already helped you start your day with some delicious brunch options, but now let’s turn to lunch and dinner to keep you going long enough to pass out in your own bed.
Fried Chicken Run | American Sardine Bar | Saturday, June 4 | 5p – 11p | $35
If you’re interested in helping your physique just a little bit during Beer Week, start it out with the Fishtown Beer Runners‘ annual run from Philadelphia Brewing Co to American Sardine Bar, a just-about-five-mile run. Your entry fee will get you a PBC beer, a fried chicken buffet, and a sweet Fried Chicken Run t-shirt. DD tickets are available for $30, and tickets can be purchased here.
Bing Bing Summer Fling | East Passyunk Ave | Sunday, June 5 | 1p – 4p | $PAYG
As part of a larger, 13-hour Craft Beer Day on East Passyunk, the masterminds at Bing Bing Dim Sum will be hosting a pork roast and featuring “600 Pacman buns, 2 sauces, 3 sides”, all while teaming up with Tired Hands to offer some amazing beer with their just-as-amazing food. You’ll be able to spend all day on E Passyunk, but make sure the brunt of your time is spent here.
Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen | Sancho Pistola’s | Tuesday, June 7 | 6:30p – 1a | $125 (plus tip)
In what is sure to be the biggest stomach-busting event of the week, Sancho’s has invited NINE guest chefs to each do a course, which will each be paired with a different beer. Add in the welcome beer and you’ve got nine courses, 10 beers, and one hell of a night. Chefs will include Val Stryjewski (Prohibition Tap Room), Daniela D’Ambrosio (Pickled Heron), Ned Maddock (XIX), Juan Carlos Aparicio (Zavino), Josh Kim (Spot Burgers), Kristopher W. Serviss (Blue Duck), Evan Butkovsky (Kanella), Danielle Amabille (The Oyster House), and of course Sancho’s own Adam Trinidad. The beers will be intense, if the first course’s Cantillon Iris is any indication. Click here for tickets and a full beer lineup.
Tastes of Fire and Ice | Red Owl Tavern | Thursday, June 9 | 6:30p – 8:30p | $75
Four courses paired with four beers, with each course getting hotter and each beer getting spicier. This is a great progression for anyone who loves spicy food and hoppy beer – and the both go together oh so well. The food will feature red snapper ceviche, BBQ togarashi-rubbed chicken wings, oven-roasted wild boar ribs, and a chipotle brownie paired with Sam Adams’ selections Got to Gose, Yuzu Reserve, Chai Saison, and a last course paired with Grumpy Monk and Nitro Coffee Stout.
