During the hot summer months, we’re not usually looking to drink heavy stouts and porters. We usually opt for something light, crisp, and refreshing. Crabbie’s Ginger Beer makes for a great summer sipper, which is why we’re excited for the second annual Crabbie’s Week in Philly. Crabbie’s Week starts Monday, July 27 and runs through Sunday, August 3 and features games, prizes, Paint Nite, appearances by J.C., Crabbie’s seven-foot tall inflatable elephant, and, of course, plenty of Crabbie’s to go around.
Crabbie’s Original is an alcoholic ginger beer that clocks in at a refreshing 4.8% ABV, making it great for enjoying poolside or just about anywhere, really. Crabbie’s Original is made by cold steeping ginger for up to six weeks and combining that with a blend of spices. Crabbie’s is also available in Spiced Orange and, the new addition, Cloudy Lemonade. You can sample one or all of the flavors at many of the Crabbie’s Week events. Check out the full lineup below.
