The Schuylkill River Greenways National Heritage Area is partnering with FCM Hospitality, the creators of Philadelphia’s successful Parks on Tap series, and Mainstay Independent Brewing Company, to bring a mobile beer garden series to riverside locations this summer.
The inaugural Trails on Tap series will take place for six weeks at four different locations along the Schuylkill River Trail at the Pottstown Riverfront Park (June 26-30), Valley Forge National Historical Park (July 3-7, July 10-14), Royersford Riverfront Park (July 17-21, July 24-28), and Norristown Riverfront Park (July 31 – Aug. 4).
“Trails on Tap provides the opportunity for people to enjoy a casual social atmosphere while also experiencing the beauty of the scenic Schuylkill River Trail and River,” says Schuylkill River Greenways NHA executive director Elaine Paul Schaefer.
The festive family- and pet-friendly outdoor space will feature lighting, comfortable chairs, hammocks and restrooms. Each location will have Mainstay beers on tap, including the popular Constitution Lager, Poplar Pils and Trails Pale Ale. Look for non-alcoholic beverages as well as delicious food options from Philly native chef Justin Koenig.
A portion of proceeds from Trails on Tap will be reinvested toward protecting the river, expanding the Schuylkill River Trail, and supporting Schuylkill River Greenways.
