    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).
