Philadelphians love beer - so much that several local museums now have beer exhibits. Many of them featuring McGillin's Olde Ale House, the city's oldest bar. See exhibits then partake. Cheers!

    "Check out "American Spirits: The Rise & Fall of Prohibition." During prohibition, Ma McGillin's shackled the front door of McGillin's. The bar survived by letting patrons in the side door for "tea.""
