All Aboard the Express!
 

The concept behind the Craft Beer Express is simple. A handful of Philly bar owners wanted to share their love of beer with people who appreciate a fine brew as much as they do. What better way than a pub crawl? We collaborated to create a crawl that would attract a knowledgeable audience who has a passion for quality beers and in-depth tasting events. Just like that, the CBX was born. While we'd love to have as large a crowd as possible at our bars, we’d also like to make sure everyone is comfortable – so ticket sales are limited. We constantly add buses to the route to minimize wait times and to maximize adequate seating. The CBX grows every year (two events per year), so gather your friends and enjoy the finest beers Philly has to offer. Tickets are available online up until the day of the event.


Participating Bars & Tickets Bus tickets are $10 prior to the event, and $15 on the day of. You may start at any bar you wish - just click BUY TICKETS below. There is a small processing fee for online orders, but you can avoid this fee by visiting any of the participating bars to purchase your tickets. Upon choosing a starting location you will need to start at that bar on the day of the event. There will you will be able to exchange your paper ticket for your wrist bracelet so that you may ride the bus. If you have purchased a paper ticket from any of the bars you can use that ticket to start at any location you want. All sales are final so please be sure that the bar you choose is the one you wish to start at.
