The Philadelphia Brewing Company does a lot for the surrounding community. They host events, and they sponsor every First Friday. And they even give away free beer. Every Saturday from 12 p.m. until 3 p.m. PBC invites the neighborhood to come in and have a few drinks on the house. While you're there, you can also go on the free tour, hosted by David April.
April does the PBC tours on Saturday, but he also formed a running club called the Fishtown Beer Runners. Basically, the runners meet at April's house, and run anywhere between 3 to 6 miles to a bar. We had no idea when we met April, just how involved he was within the community. Ever since we met him, he shows up everywhere. While interviewing the cartoonist Jeff Kilpatrick, April was mentioned and Kilpatrick smiled and said, "Yeah, Dave's a really great guy." April is the man that everyone knows, and he knows everyone. And more importantly, he knows and loves his community.
