Where to Find Good Beer During the Budweiser Made in America Festival

Twelve taps pour local and other crafts, along with another 14 or so in bottles and cans at this unassuming Fairmount pub. (349 Fairmount Ave.; 215-765-1616)

This article has 12 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

A dozen choices on draft are backed up by over 200 bottles at this Green Street tavern, best enjoyed with a bowl of mussels or side of frites with the addictive house dipping sauce. (601 N 21st St.; 215-235-3500)

One of the first bars in the city to specialize in Belgian beers (there are more than 25 on the hundred-long bottle list), this tavern features gravity and nitro taps. (726 N 24th St.; 215-232-3232)

Though the drafts don’t pour anything more exciting than the expected Guinness, this Irish pub fills out the bottle list with a sprinkling of local craft faves, and you can’t beat its proximity to the concert site. (1700 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy.; 267-687-1128)

Known for its organic, healthy food, this Fairmount dining room does a good job on the bottle front, even though there are no taps, offering more than two dozen crafts from around the world. (2028 Fairmount Ave.; 267-639-3063)

Sit inside the converted 19th century firehouse or out in the spacious patio and sip on half a dozen all-local drafts or another dozen in bottles. (2130 Fairmount Ave.; 215-232-9000)

Another super-close option, this gastropub fills all 17 taps with U.S. craft brew, and abets the selection with several dozen more in bottles and cans. (1836 Callowhill St.; 215-568-1818)

Incredible contemporary Mexican food awaits, and if you don’t get swayed off the brew-track by one of the many margaritas on offer, pick from six well-chosen drafts. (2321 Fairmount Ave.; 215-787-9930)

This neighborhood fave has served food and brews for over 25 years. Choose from bottles and cans of a dozen crafts from overseas and another 20 from in the States. Don’t miss the selection of beer cocktails — yes, they exist, and they’re delicious. (2301 Fairmount Ave.; 215-978-4545)

You'll find better-than-usual grub at this pub just a few blocks north of the Parkway. You'll also find an awesome lineup of all-American beers on draft. (529 N 20th St.; 215-854-0923)

This neighborhooder keeps its taps well-stocked with an interested assortment of ales, and also offers eight craft cans and around 20 more in bottles. (741 N 23rd St.; 215-763-2228)

Ample outdoor seating expands this corner pub in close proximity to the music fest, where you can find over a dozen choices on draft and more in bottles. (1701 Green St.; 215-769-5000)

This local saloon is kicking things off a little early when the Budweiser Clydesdales roll into town on Thursday. You won't go thirsty either since this Fairmount spot has around a dozen taps and a decent bottle and can list. (2120 Fairmount Ave.; 215-232-5359) 

    Where to Find Good Beer During the Budweiser Made in America Festival
    On the Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day weekend (September 5 and 6), music fans from around the world will descend on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia for the Budweiser Made in America music festival.
