Weʼre thrilled to return with a full venue takeover for the 20th Annual World Cafe Live Beer Fest! As one of Phillyʼs original craft beer festivals, ours is like no other, bringing you the full WCL Experience with an eventful afternoon of drinks, food, and music.

This event is for the craft connoisseurs – and not just beer. Youʼll get to try unlimited samples of cider, seltzers, canned cocktails, and beer without the long lines or packed crowds. Keep an eye out for old favorites and discover exciting new offerings. Weʼll be pouring seasonals, staples, and rarities from over 30 local, national, and international breweries throughout all three levels of the venue. Stay tuned for brewery announcements!

Weʼre celebrating 20 years of Beer Fest with a new interactive experience for 2024. The event will be hosted by Raheem Manning, Phillyʼs Director of Night Time Economy. Youʼll get to hear directly from the brewers about what youʼre tasting, as well as vote for your top fan favorites from the day. Your ticket also includes a variety of delicious small plates by WCL Executive Chef Rob Cottman. Our resident rhythmist Oluwafemi will provide the music. Donʼt forget to head upstairs to The Lounge to spin the WCL prize wheel for your chance to win concert tickets and other swag. The VIP experience includes early entry one hour before general admission and a WCL Beer Fest t-shirt. You’ll also have access to VIP only beers, seating, and complimentary soft drinks.

Get your early bird tickets now – $60 for GA and $80 for VIP. Starting in July, GA will be $80 and VIP will be $100. A limited number of tickets will be available to allow for maximum spacing, so round up your squad and donʼt miss out!

Don’t drink and drive! World Cafe Live is conveniently located just two blocks from 30th Street Station, and on the route of several SEPTA bus lines, allowing you to enjoy sampling several beers without the worry of driving home afterward. $20 designated driver tickets will be on sale day of only at the box office.
