Philly Beer Week 2009 – McGillins Ale House

Ok, every once in a while, you stumble on something rather than looking for it.

While we were in Philly to participate in the Philly Beer week (see previous post), we were sight seeing Sunday before we headed to the house … and, lo and behold, in an alley right behind our hotel (the Double Tree … recommend it if you get the new rooms) was the oldest Pub in Philadelphia — McGillins Old Ale House–it opened it’s doors the year Lincoln was elected.  Well, we couldn’t let the “beer experience” pass us by, so we stopped in for a cold one at 1130 am … just the right thing for a relaxing trip back to DC!
