Beer & Food Tour is Tasty Father's Day Gift
PHILADELPHIA (May 27, 2009) - If your father loves food - he'll just eat up the City Food Tour's Craft Beer & Artisanal Cheese Tour. This two-hour adventure, in Center City Philadelphia, includes a thirst-quenching flight of eight craft beers at one of the city's best microbrewers and a hearty cheese tasting at a European-inspired cheese shop in Old City. The Craft Beer & Artisanal Cheese Tour will be held on Saturday, June 20 and Sunday, June 21 starting at 3:30 p.m. Gift certificates are also available.
"This Father's Day, instead of a tie, take your Dad on this unforgettable tasting adventure that isn't just fun, but offers a great chance to bond with dad," said Robert Weinberg, co-owner, City Food Tours, which has been the premier food-focused tour and event operator since they burst onto the Philadelphia food scene in November of 2007.
This insider's look at Philadelphia foods begins at Triumph Brewing Company where guests sample a flight of 8 beers ranging from pilsners to rich and creamy stouts. During the tasting, a City Food Tours food expert shares fun facts about pairing beer with foods, brewing techniques, and some of the world's unique beer styles.
Then walk just a few blocks to Old City Cheese Shop, home to more than 75 varieties of domestic and imported cheeses. Enjoy generous portions of 5 amazing cheeses, as the guide shares the inside scoop on how cheese is made, how to pair cheeses with beer and wine, and much more.
