Looking out at the city from the Free Library of Philadelphia's rooftop during Brews & Views summer 2017.

Last year, the Free Library of Philadelphia invited the community to drink on the roof of the Parkway Central branch during its new Brews & Views series.

In April, the rooftop will once again open for extended happy hour.

There will be craft beer, wine and cocktails, along with a menu of snacks from Brûlée Catering – try the charcuterie and cheese plate or the Bavarian pretzel sticks.

This season's first Brews & Views dates will be Wednesday, April 25 through Friday, April 27. The beer garden will be open 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. each evening.

Last summer, Brews & Views took place every Thursday from mid-May through the end of June. No word yet on whether this year will follow suit. Stay tuned for updates.

For those with kids, the pop-up beer garden is family-friendly.
