Phillies fans, this is going to be the most valuable information that you receive all year. Let’s face it, this season is shaping up to be a real stinker. Playoffs?! You kidding me?! Besides screaming “CHOOOOOOOOCH” and stuffing your face with overpriced Philly cuisine, the only other thing to do while at a game at Citizens Bank Park this season is drink beer, and LOTS of it.

We present to you, a Google Spreadsheet containing the name and location of every decent beer sold at CitizensBank Park. Kudos to the folks at the food blog for gathering this priceless information.  Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA, Lagunitas IPA, who knew that they could both be had at the Irish Pub in Section 102, which judging from the spreadsheet, seems to offer the greatest selection of suds in the joint. Looking for a nice cold locally brewed Philadelphia Brewing Walt Whit? Head straight to the beer kiosk at Section 132.

Enough talk. Here is the link. The spreadsheet was updated on June 6. Download it. Print it. Put it on your smartphone. Tattoo it on your arm. And forward this email to every beer-drinking Phillies fan that you know.

Thank us later. For now, CHOOOOOOOOOCH!!


Here at Brooklydelphia headquarters, we are ALL about coffee and beer.  After hanging out at Brew/Ultimo in South Philly  for a few hours, we are seriously considering relocating our HQ. Brew/Ultimo is a coffee shop and “beer boutique” shop rolled in to one. Walk thru the front door and you’ll find an open layout with rustic and industrial features and design.  Your first stop will be Ultimo’s coffee counter.  Order yourself a hand poured drip coffee – we had the house brew, cafe americano style and were quite pleased. Or do it proper and order a cappuccino.  It’s probably going to be warm outside so the garage door on the side wall will be rolled up. Grab a seat and enjoy the chill vibe.

After you kill the coffee and the caffeine buzz starts kicking in, take a glance over to the opposite wall and admire Brew’s eight refrigerated coolers filled with about 500 different kinds of beer. The first two coolers will have local stuff, including our faves Yards and Dogfish Head. The next four coolers are loaded with fine U.S craft beers. The last coolers have international beers from Belgium, Germany and more. Grab a few bottles (we were craving some hops and went with this one and this one), take a mug and jump out to an outdoor table. Pull those sunglasses over your eyes, and enjoy. We’ll be doing the same at the table beside you.

Thank you Brew / Ultimo, we heart you too.

Brew / Ultimo 1900 S.15th street and Mifflin, South Philly

Brew: Sunday-Thursday 11am-9pm, Friday -Saturday 11am-10pm
Ultimo: Monday-Friday 7am-9pm, Saturday-Sunday 8am-9pm

Thank you Yards Brewery for crafting one of the most delicious beers that I have tasted in a long time.  Yards Love Stout is as sweet and smooth of a stout that you will find. You can really taste the delicious chocolate that is used in the brewing process. When I have the fever for something dark and sweet, move over Guinness, I’m finding me a Love Stout.  The word from the brewery is that they are no longer selling this in bottle, so head down to the brewery on Delaware Avenue and grab a seat at their comfy bar, or you can find one here, on, another thing that we absolutely LOVE, and youse will too.
