Taking over Philly’s Starlight Ballroom on Jan. 22 is the Winter Beer Festival, which brings a host of domestic, craft and import brews to the mix for patrons (21 and up, obviously) to sample. Familiar faces like Sam Adams and Sierra Nevada will bring out their winter seasonals, and smaller craft brewers like Copper Crow, Six Point and Stone will show off interesting and intricate flavors of everyone’s favorite pastime. Make sure you have a designated driver at the ready, because nobody wants to spit out good beer. Hit up winterbeerfest.com for tasting times and tickets.
