The good folks over at Drink Philly are throwing a huge beer blowout called Phestiv-Ale, and tickets for its two tasting sessions are on sale now. The party will take place at the spacious Sheet Metal Workers Hall on Columbus Boulevard on Saturday, September 8. In both sessions — one runs from noon to 3 p.m., and the other from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. — there will be tons of beer flowing. The sudsy fest is bringing in beers from local brewers like Yards, Sly Fox, Victory, and Troegs, as well as brews from popular out-of-town producers like Lagunitas, Allagash, and Oskar Blues. Tickets cost $45 now, and $55 the day of the fest. Proceeds from ticket sales are going to Delaware Valley Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. To purchase tickets, and learn more, check out the Phestiv-Ale website.
