Matt and Kristen spoke to Tom Kehoe and Trevor Pritchett of Yards Brewery before the Grand Opening of their new Yards Brewery and Taproom located at 500 Spring Garden Street. Tom and Trevor celebrate 23 years of brewing in Philadelphia with the opening of their 70,000 square foot location featuring a great list of their Yards beers on draft, plus delicious food (try the cheddar bratwurst!). Yards continues their legacy of being Philadelphia's Brewery in this new spot, and as always - encourages everyone to Brew Unto Others.
Christmas Village has become a Philadelphia staple and December tradition over the last 10 years of its existence in Love park (minus last year of course when Christmas Village was moved Dilworth Plaza while Love Park underwent a facelift). Christmas Village returns to its home in Love Park this year, and Kristen spoke to Corinna Breuer, PR for Christmas Village, to find out what we can expect in this 10th year of Philadelphia's authentic German Christmas market. Ho Ho Happy Hour returns this year on Wednesdays with $5 mulled wine ($3 refills), Santa Paws events for dogs every Friday, partnering with PAWS, and of course the big 10 Year Anniversary celebration!
