Once again, it’s time to vote on the Best of the Philly Beer Scene Awards.

As with years past, to put together the final list of nominees, we surveyed the local craft beer industry to find out which bars, breweries and beers shined the brightest over the last year. We’ve taken their top choices and now it’s up to you to decide who will take the stage on May 23rd to accept the awards.

With the increasingly rampant growth of the local craft beer scene, we had to put together some parameters when deciding who was eligible for a nomination. As much as we love the many bars and breweries out there that may stretch the definition of local, at some point we had to draw a line in determining what is actually local. Here are a few that we used:

Breweries
Pennsylvania: within 100 miles of City Hall in Philadelphia
New Jersey/Delaware: within 45 miles of City Hall in Philadelphia

Brewpubs and Small Breweries
Pennsylvania: within 45 miles of City Hall in Philadelphia & within either Bucks, Chester, Delaware or Montgomery County
New Jersey/Delaware: within 45 miles of City Hall in Philadelphia

It should also be of note that if a brewpub is over 45 miles yet within 100 miles of City Hall and distributes in the Philadelphia market, then it was considered a brewery rather than a brewpub. Also, even though breweries such as Victory have both multiple production facilities and multiple brewpubs, we limited breweries to only being nominated in one of the three brewery categories. 

Bars
Pennsylvania: within 45 miles of City Hall in Philadelphia and within either Bucks, Chester, Delaware or Montgomery County
New Jersey/Delaware: within 45 miles of City Hall in Philadelphia

We’ve added a few new categories this year as well. With the rise in craft distilling and our love for whiskey, we thought it was time to recognize the local distillers. Also new this year is the award for Beer Garden of the year. It seemed like every town and neighborhood opened a beer garden last summer, so we decided to recognize those who did them best.

Voting will remain open until midnight on April 30th. You are free to vote as many times as you want, but we do monitor IP addresses and will cancel votes if we notice excessive repetitive voting in a short period of time. We want to make sure the winner is the person who deserved it and not a result of someone having too much time on their hands.

Tickets for the award show are available now as well. Due to the nature of the event and have to reserve most of the room for the nominees and presenters, we are only able to release a very small amount of tickets to the general public. This year, there are exactly 50 seats available for those who want to get dressed up and celebrate with their favorite local bars and breweries.
