City Brew Tours, the nationwide tour group, is making its way to Philadelphia. The Philly Brew Tours, which launches Saturday, July 11, will bring guests around to a slew of different breweries, distilleries and beer-focused restaurants for five hours of beer education.
Each tour is all-inclusive, so tastings, food, brewery tours and transportation all come along with the $85 price tag. Guests learn how to identify popular beers, have a guided tasting of 15 different beers, learn Philly's beer history, chat with beer experts and get a full lunch or dinner at a local restaurant.

Yards, Flying Fish, 2nd Story, Dock Street, Saint Benjamin and Philadelphia Brewing Company are among those featured on the tours. Brauhaus Schmitz and both City Tap House locations in Logan Square and West Philly will also participate.
PBT tours come in two varieties, plus the option of a private tour. The Original Philadelphia Brew Tour is beginner-friendly, heading to three or four breweries and sampling 15 beers. The After-Hours Brew Tour is a little more cutting edge, with a tasting of 18 different samples. Tickets for tours starting July 11 are available now.
