The Free Library’s rooftop beer garden is back for a limited time

Brews & Views returns this week for a three-night run.

From the Free Library of Philadelphia

Brews & Views, the popular rooftop beer garden that launched this past spring at the Parkway Central Library, is popping back up for three nights only this month: Wednesday Oct. 18; Thursday, Oct. 19; and Friday Oct. 20, running from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. Parkway Central’s Skyline Terrace will welcome guests to enjoy drinks and snacks and to take in spectacular views of the city overlooking Logan Square.

Radio sponsor Today’s 96.5 will be providing music each evening to energize the crowd. In addition, the Today’s 96.5 street team will be on-site with games and prizes.

Children are welcome with their caregivers, and are invited to play with giant blocks and hula hoops and imagineer in our cardboard construction lab.

Local craft beers, wine, and refreshing cocktails will be available to purchase, along with a menu of made-to-order snacks from Brûlée’s chefs. The kickoff menu will include seasonal snacks. Further menu details will be reveled on the event’s Facebook page.

The beer garden is free to enter, and no advance registration is required. Guests must be at least 21 years of age; children are welcome with caregivers that are at least 21 years of age. Staff will check IDs before allowing guests up to the rooftop.
