Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Rolls Into Philadelphia
Sierra Nevada hits the road this summer for a cross-country beer festival.
Sierra Nevada is hitting the road this summer for a cross-country beer festival, with one of their seven stops including Philadelphia. Join the California-based brewery and its on-the-road team at its sixth stop on Sat., Aug. 2, noon–5 p.m., at Penn Treaty Park.
The first-ever Beer Camp Across America traveling beer fest is said to be the largest coast-to-coast beer celebration of its kind, with Sierra Nevada inviting every craft brewery in the country (all 2,800 of them!) to attend and pour their beer at one of seven stops on the tour. More than 700 breweries signed up overall, with a total of 1,300 craft beers (one from every state included) being poured throughout the seven-stop fest.
For the upcoming Philadelphia-based festival, beer lovers can expect nearly 150 craft beers from 76 breweries (those from Delaware and Maryland, to New Jersey, New York, Virginia, Washington D.C., and of course, Pennsylvania) to be served at the event. Couldn’t get your hands on the exclusive, one-time only Beer Camp Across America variety pack that hit beer shelves this summer? No problem! Those 12 rare Sierra Nevada collaboration beers, including one with local Victory Brewing Co.—an old-school German Altbier-style featuring an ale-lager hybrid yeast—will be on tap too. Additional Beer Camp Across America partnership beers that you can’t miss at the fest include those with Allagash, the Asheville Brewers Alliance, Ballast Point, Bell’s Brewery, Cigar City, Firestone Walker, New Glarus, Ninkasi, Oskar Blues, Russian River and 3 Floyds.

What makes this fest even better? Food—and lots of it! Ten food trucks will also on-site slinging their street food, including Bonjour Creperie, Delicias Food Truck, Farm Truck, Mama’s Meat Balls, Oink and Moo BBQ, Rigatoni Crab Cake Mobile, Surf and Turf, Sweet Box, The Cow and The Curd and The Tot Cart.
