Bacon, Beer and Running in Philadelphia

King of Prussia Beefest Royal

King of Prussia District

Beer has been pretty popular in Philadelphia since before it even became a city, so it's really no wonder that beer festivals are becoming a year round thing rather than just autumn events. The Philadelphia Marathon is also quite popular with the locals, meaning there's at least a bit of a focus on fitness. But, the creation of an upcoming beer and bacon festival shows that their priorities are straight.


The Philly Craft Beer Festival will return to the Philadelphia Navy Yard on March 1, 2014.

Last month, the King of Prussia Beerfest Royale attracted 3,000 people. The event raised money for the King of Prussia Business Improvement District. Read More
