Dear Fine Citizens of Philadelphia,

In case you haven’t noticed the month of August is upon us- meaning there is only one official month of summer left.

We know; it’s a shocking and sad realization.

We sincerely hope you’ve been making the most of the summer but if you’ve just been sitting on your couch trying to beat the stifling heat instead of having fun, then it’s time to get up, get out and make the most of what you have left, and there’s no better place to do that than Bru Craft & Wurst.

You’re probably thinking “ugh, not another bier garden, there are plenty of those in Philly”, but seriously this is something you’re not going to want to miss. With 39 drafts on tap, a bier wall, and all the German food you could want like Bavarian Pretzels, Kase Spatzel, Weinerschnitzel and Frankfurters, it’s the king of all bier gardens.

We’re sure you probably picked up on that whole bier wall thing and are probably wondering what that is and well, it’s probably the best part of the whole place. What you’re going to do is buy a Haus Key from your server or bartender for five measly bucks and then you’re going to start pouring your own bier right from the bier wall. Let us break that down for you. Bier. No lines. No waiting. No tipping. Just bier straight from the bier wall. Just let that glorious idea soak in for a minute.

So instead of sitting on your couch for the rest of the summer watching it pass you by, get up and get yourself over to Bru Craft & Wurst for a night of drinking yourself silly with delicious bier; but don’t worry- if you want to stay home and waste the summer away (loser), Bru Craft & Wurst still be here come fall.
