Craft Beer & Artisanal Cheese

Quick Facts

  • Offered the 1st, 3rd, & 5th Saturday of every month from 3:30pm–5:30pm
  • $55 per person (gratuity not included)
  • Held in Center City, Philly. It's just a short 7-minute walk from 30th Street Station
  • Includes generous samples of 8 beers, 4 cheeses, and assorted flatbreads, but this is not a full meal.
  • Equally great for local and out-of-town beer and cheese lovers

How does this experience compare to other beer tastings in Philly?

  • This is a great value! Includes generous samples of 8 craft beers (equal to 2.5 bottles of beer...really good beer) and 4 sumptuous cheeses (almost ¼ lb. per person). Everyone also enjoys fresh made flatbread pizzas hot from the oven and lots of addictive Sarcone’s bread.
  • We believe a beer tasting should be fun--full of useful facts and great conversation, in a casual atmosphere. If you’re looking for stuffy and sophisticated, this ain’t it.
  • The tasting takes place in a private tasting room exclusive to our groups!
  • You’ll leave this tasting with a good idea about how beers and cheeses are made and know the difference between the beer styles you're tasting.
  • Now for what we don’t do: We don’t drag you all over the city from one crowded dive to another. We don’t make you sing 18th century tunes to get a beer, nor do we dress in colonial costumes and pretend we don’t know what cell phones are.
  • The tasting is led by an owner of City Food Tours-- a down-to-earth beer and cheese fanatic who dabbles in homebrewing and cheesemaking.
  • This tasting adventure is not just for beer lovers! With 8 distinct brews and 4 yummy cheeses, everyone is sure to discover a favorite.

All the Yummy Details

This entertaining and delicious 2-hour tasting adventure takes place near 23rd and Market Streets in Center City Philadelphia--just a 7 minute walk from 30th Street Station. There, a fun and knowledgeable food & beer pro will introduce you to 8 Craft Beers and 4 Artisanal Cheeses

You’ll enjoy 8 distinct craft beers representing a vast range of styles. During the tasting, Eric Matzke (one of the owners of City Food Tours) will share some fun facts about how beer is made, the quirky stories behind each of the 8 brews you taste, and pairing suggestions. Samples of malted barleys and hops will also be available to smell and taste. Everyone is welcome to ask questions.
We’ll also treat you to hearty portions of 4 fantastic farmstead cheeses. In addition to tasting, we’ll share the inside scoop on how cheeses are made, the 7 groups of cheeses, and answer any questions guests may have.
Not just for beer lovers! With 8 stellar beers, 4 amazing cheeses, and great fun facts and tips, there's something for everyone! 
IMPORTANT NOTE: While this is a fun and very social event, we ask guests to keep in mind that there will be periods of time when everyone will be asked to refrain from talking so that the presenter can share key insight into the beer styles featured, ingredients used, and how beer is made.

This entertaining and casual tasting takes place in one great location. This is a tasting adventure, not a full meal. All guests must be at least 21 years old.
Content and Schedule subject to change. **In rare circumstances tastings may be cancelled due to low attendance.
