It might be a marketing slogan, but anyone who lives here knows that Philadelphia really is “America’s best beer-drinking city.” The region’s been awash in great independent breweries since the 1990s, and distributors here started importing beer from Belgium before any others in the US. These days, the taprooms that dot almost every corner of the city serve everything great locally, all the best from Europe, and also rare brews from the rest of the country. Plus, Philly is finally experiencing a brewery boom of its own, with more in-city brewhouses opening than ever before (unless you go back to before Prohibition).

What Victory co-founder Bill Covaleski will host visiting beer expert Jorgen Hasselqvist of world-renowned Oliver Twist Pub in Stockholm for a sampling of three tastes of rare Swedish brews. Expect a proper education, lively discussion, killer beers and Scandinavian-inspired snacks.
