Pop-up Beer Garden Comes to the Schuylkill River Trail
THE 2020 TRAILS ON TAP SERIES RETURNS IN APRIL
The Schuylkill River Greenways National Heritage Area is partnering with FCM Hospitality, the creators of Philadelphia’s successful “Parks on Tap” series, and Mainstay Independent Brewing Company, to once again bring a mobile beer garden to riverside locations for the Summer 2020. The beer garden will travel to three different locations: Royersford, Pottstown, and Valley Forge National Historical Park. Families and friends can come together to enjoy food, drinks and fun in a natural green space.
All of the locations are in a park next to the Schuylkill River Trail and alongside the Schuylkill River to highlight these two significant regional resources as well as each park’s amenities. A portion of all proceeds from Trails on Tap will be reinvested toward protecting the river, expanding the Schuylkill River Trail, and supporting Schuylkill River Greenways.
