Mobile beer garden Parks on Tap has something brewing.
Parks on Tap, a partnership of Fairmount Park Conservancy, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, and FCM Hospitality, is taking the term “beer garden” to a whole new level in Philly.
You may not have “Visit every park in Philadelphia” jotted down on your bucket list, but we can’t think of a better reason to try than during Parks on Tap. This roving beers-on-wheels pop-up concept returns for a second season in 2017, transforming famed and familiar green spaces across the 215 into scenes straight out of Philly beer-garden behemoths like Morgan’s Pier, Frankford Hall, Independence Beer Garden, and Spruce Street Harbor Park.
Pull up a patch of grass at 20 locations starting May 17 through October 1, every Wednesday through Sunday. Parks on Tap brings the brews, wine, and snacks plus lounging necessities like chairs, hammocks, and string lights. With stops including the event kickoff at the Art Museum’s Azalea Garden, FDR Park, Gorgas Park, Penn Treaty Park, and even Shofuso Japanese House and Garden—Parks on Tap 2.0 is worth raising a glass—or a stein—to.
