This map is for the beer nerd who's always a step ahead. It's for the beer-ready, beer-willing, and beer-able. It's a map made up of the new guys, the just-opened-in-the-past-year guys, the breweries and bottle shops ready to show off their stuff, aiming guaranteeing to please. This is where to drink beer in Philly, here and now.

Have you tried something new this year that you'd like to nominate? Leave your suggestions in the comments or email us with your thoughts.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Crime & Punishment Brewing Co.

Copy Link
2711 W Girard Ave
Philadelphia, PA 19130
(215) 235-2739
Visit Website
Brewerytown can finally live up to its name with the long-awaited opening of Crime & Punishment. The Russian literature-inspired brewery is resurrecting West Philly's old tradition of beer brewing, implementing modern techniques, all the while turning out Russian bar snacks to cap the deal.

2. Tired Hands Fermentaria

Copy Link
35 Cricket Terrace Ctr
Ardmore, PA 19003
(484) 314-3141
Visit Website
This second-coming of Tired Hands Brewery, just down the street from its original location, brings us more of a good thing. The new location allows for a full brewpub (180 seats) and larger production accommodations — all parts to their future mass-expansion, world domination plans.

3. Beer Love

Copy Link
714 S 4th St
Philadelphia, PA 19147
For far too long, Queen Village didn't have the luxury of a neighborhood bottle shop, but with Beer Love's opening, they went from rags to riches. The bottle shop offers the usual suspects (great beer selection, taps, growlers, and weekly tastings), but with a Bottle Membership, you get a hand-selected six-pack of specialty beers each month.

4. The Bottle Shop

Copy Link
1616 E Passyunk Ave
Philadelphia, PA 19148
(215) 551-5551
Visit Website
Being the only bottle shop on Philadelphia's Restaurant Row isn't a bad place to be. After a move up East Passyunk Avenue, The Bottle Shop reopened with an entirely new aesthetic, boasting an even larger beer selection, more taps, and a cozier room to hang with the gang.

5. Tria Fitler Square

Copy Link
2227 Pine St
Philadelphia, PA 19103
(215) 309-2245
Visit Website
Tria's Fitler Square location opened with the hopes of being the first food-focused location amongst its brothers and sisters elsewhere in Philly. But there's no denying it: Tria's still got that "let's get a drink" market cornered, and their beer selection, especially when paired with a wine and cheese for Sunday School, can rival any list in Philadelphia.

6. Hawthornes Biercafé

Copy Link
738 S 11th St
Philadelphia, PA 19147
(215) 627-3012
Visit Website
Like a phoenix, Hawthornes was reborn of its ashes. Last year, a devastating fire burned the café/bottle shop to the ground, and Philadelphia lamented the loss of one of its premier beer-y brunches. But with its revival comes a new and improved beer cafe with even more beer, a baking department, and a fireplace bigger than the last.

7. Victory At Magnolia

Copy Link
650 W Cypress St, Kennett Square
PA, 19348
(484) 730-1870
Visit Website
Victory opened the second outpost of its Downingtown location in Kennett Square with a seven barrel brewery, offering Kennett-brewed beers you won't find anywhere else.

8. 2SP Brewing Co.

Copy Link
120 Concord Rd
Aston, PA 19014
Head brewer Bob Barrar, a Delco native, opened 2SP Brewing Company with 19 Great American Beer Festival and ten World Beer Cup medals hanging around his neck — so you know the beer is great. Take a tour, you'll see what we mean.

9. Brigantessa

Copy Link
(267) 318-7341
Visit Website
Brigantessa, though not known for its beers, should be. Unbeknownst to most, Italy's craft beer movement is on the up and up, and Brigantessa is at the forefront of it in Philadelphia. Make the trip and educate your palate on the hard-to-find beers of Italy.

10. Coeur

Copy Link
824 S 8th St
Philadelphia, PA 19147
Not mentioning Brendan Hartranft and Leigh Maida's new venture, Couer, would be a disservice to beer fanatics everywhere. Those two know beer better than most people know themselves, and although they are focusing on the wine program for their new location, they still have a reputation to uphold. Their beer list does just that.
