I've enjoyed Don's columns in the Philadelphia Daily News and his website for many years now. A true died-in-the-wool beer geek and Philadelphia born and bred native, I could think of no one better to give outsiders and inside look into "good beer" in the Philly area. This book is a great reference for those who wish to find the best the City of Brotherly Love has to offer in the beer category. One could waste a lot of time searching through all the bars and restaurants in the city to find those few gems. Well, Don has done all the legwork for you. All you have to do is buy the book and make the trip. He even provides maps and mass transit routes along with visitor tips! In addition to serious beerhunting, he has included some humorous anecdotes from his newspaper past and a history of beer in the city. A must have for anyone who plans on visiting the "Best Beer Drinking City in America".

I bought this prior to going on our summer vacation to Philadelphia. Luckily we had it with us on our first afternoon of exploring. This book lead us to some spectacular spots! We ran into some great bars, had fantastic drinks, and met up with great bartenders. This is by far the best vacation book I have ever bought!

Live in Philly and enjoy Joe Sixpack's column so I picked this up. I thought this would have more unique stories not found in his column. There were but they weren't as entertaining or as indepth as I would have liked. Was a quick read and would be good for someone coming into Philly for the first time as a quick reference guide. However, this has not been updated so a few of the drinking establishments no longer exist.

Joe Sixpack has created a great book for anyone living or planning to visit to Philadelphia for its beer scene. Use this as your one-on-one tour guide around the city and some coverage to the 'burbs as well.

Joe gives you the lowdown on some of the best beer bars in the area and covers every brewery/brewpub you can visit. He even gives nice day trips if you wanted to walk along and do a bar hop.

Definitely pick this guidebook up to the best spots in the city and be sure to visit his blog/column in the local paper.
