Philadelphia is known as one of the best beer drinking cities in the country and earned this reputation for many reasons. Join us on August 24th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm as we tour some of the notable beer barons who left their mark on the beer industry, and Philadelphia!
This summer walking tour will focus on the history of beer in our great city and the permanent residents of sister cemeteries, Laurel Hill and West Laurel Hill, who produced, distributed and enjoyed it. Led by award-winning homebrewer and certified beer judge, Mike Lewandowski, the tour will conclude with a toast and sampling of local beers, along with activities that showcase the science that gives beer its appeal.
The tour will commence at Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse located at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia PA 19132 at 1:00 pm. Visitors will first tour Laurel Hill Cemetery and then caravan in their own personal vehicles to West Laurel Hill Cemetery, about a ten-minute drive, located at 215 Belmont Avenue, Bala Cynwyd PA 19004. After touring West Laurel Hill Cemetery, visitors are welcome to join us for a reception in the Conservatory, where the tour guides will be available for questions. The tour and reception will last approximately 3 hours.
