Twelve photographs of the Philadelphia Brewing Company in East Kensington. Took a tour, drank samples, and brought home a case of my favorites (they let you mix and match). Fantastic beer. Also loved their ginger hard cider, which was barely sweet (I can’t stand dessert-like hard ciders). Even liked their soda, a cherry-forward, HFCS-free beverage sold under the label, Dr Physick, the Philadelphia surgeon who brought the health benefits of sweetened carbonated beverages (and the stomach pump!) to the United States.

And at the bottom, one photograph of Rowhouse Spirits, which was several feet away. If you’re in the neighborhood, buy the gin. So flavorful and smooth it is almost unrecognizable as such. If you like really good scotch, you’ll love it. Great for just sipping. [http://www.rowhousespirits.us]
If you end up sampling a bit too much, kill some time by ordering fresh felafel wraps at the nearby Quick Stop and having a leisurely picnic in your car.
