    15 New Breweries And Cideries To Check Out In Philadelphia This Summer
    A real beer drinker's town since the very beginning, Philadelphia has played - and still plays - a crucial role in American brewing. In the past year-and-a-half alone, small to larger breweries have tremendously grown Philadelphia's craft brewing scene. Philadelphia's well-established players have expanded into both exciting new digs ( Yards) and experimental upstarts ( Fermentery Form, Roy-Pitz Barrel House).

The Urban Saloon: Refuge of Men and Power

Jacob Binder’s Saloon, Northeast corner Thompson Street and Germantown Avenue, June 9, 1902, Photograph by Hervey B. Harmer (PhillyHistory.org)

    The Urban Saloon: Refuge of Men and Power
    "I didn't know anything about girls," Jack London wrote, "I had been too busy being a man." For London, as well as millions of other American men of similar vintage, the saloon was ground zero for "being a man" where the "test of true manhood," as Madelon Powers put it, "was peer recognition for being a reliable ally and comrade in the volatile street culture of urban America."

    Craig LaBan: I hear you, my steamy friend. It's so blistering hot outside now, I don't think I can even do the richness of ice cream. I need a nondairy frozen dessert that's as close to ice as possible - but tastier - and Philly has several exceptional solutions, both classic and novel.
