Philly’s premier German restaurant and bierhall is cavernous enough to host a swelling crowd, which came in quite handy when Die Mannschaft claimed the 2014 World Cup. But mirthful drinkers pack in for more than just matches. They also congregate around the 30 taps, which pour an awe-inspiring lineup of beers straight from the motherland.

ProTip
The wall proudly displays the Reinheitsgebot, or centuries-old German beer purity law, but Brauhaus isn’t all business. They’ve also got beer boots and an operational shot ski. Eat some bratwurst and a couple sauerkraut balls before diving into all of that.
