'Brews & Views' back at Free Library for three days in October

Enjoy extended happy hour while overlooking the Parkway

At the end of spring, the Free Library of Philadelphia launched a new mini-series called "Brews & Views" at its Parkway Central branch. On select dates, the Skyline Terrace, overlooking the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, turned into a rooftop beer garden.

Once June ended, so did the series. We thought we would have to wait until next year to enjoy a beer above the massive collection of books, but that's not the case.

The 21-plus crowd can enjoy extended happy hour from 5-9 p.m. It's free to attend. Just pay-as-you-go for all food & drink.
