What you'll do

Join me for a 3 mile beer-themed run sprinkled with fun Philly stories! Far from feeling like a tourist, you’ll become a local weaving through the streets of Philly with me.

We’ll see the bars (then called public houses) where the Founders celebrated America’s first birthday, pass by the pub where the Marines were founded, and check out a few of the dozens of breweries in Philly’s growing craft beer industry.

We tie together the Philly beer narrative as we run through several Philly neighborhoods and “tap” into themes like industrialization, craft beer trends, and American Firsts. At the end, based on my relationship with a select brewery, we'll drink a beer to cap off the run!

Philly's beautiful, flat & straight streets are full of history - perfect for running tours! Whether you're here on vacation, business or even a local, there's no better way to learn about Philly while breaking a sweat! You'll walk away refreshed, both from the run and the post-run beer! This tour is more fulfilling than running on a hotel treadmill and better than getting lost in the city alone.

You'll receive a detailed map overview (PDF) of 50 sites from our run to help you explore further!

Meet your host, Ian

  • Identity verified
I'm a Philadelphian who's been giving unique tours of my city for over a decade. I love beer, running and showing off my city. As an accredited Philly guide with connections to some of Philly' s best brewmasters, I know Philly history (beer-related and general) in and out. Growing up, my family owned a major beer distributor, so beer is in my blood. I recently lived for 3 years in Belgium, exploring the world's beer mecca. I'm also a 5-time marathoner and belong to several Philly running clubs.
I want to share my passions and expertise with you during your time in the City of Brotherly Love!
