Holiday Travels Bottle Share Party!
Let's get together for a Beer Necessities Holiday Beer Share Party! • What we'll do Bring a bottled beer or two and a snack to share! If you're traveling over the Thanksgiving/December holidays, bring something back in your suitcase that we can't get in Philly! You can compare beer distribution here: If you're not venturing far, no worries! Grab a special holiday seasonal beer instead. • Where Depending on the RSVP count, I will be hosting the bottle share at my apartment and will provide the address the week of via email. I'll also provide tasting beer cups and a few snacks. Parking: Free street parking, but sometimes hard to find a spot - try to take the Subway if possible (stop is Tasker/Morris) then 10 minute walk to apartment. • What to bring Beer to share, snack to share.

What we're about

A very casual group of Philly women who get together to drink & learn about great craft beer, and just have fun with a bunch of great ladies! Any ladies, ages 21 - 101, are welcome! Beer Necessities Mission: Give beer-loving women (drinkers, brewers, bartenders) an opportunity to meet other beer-loving women & share some good brews and stories in the process. Only a love of beer is required, not any level of beer knowledge. We'll learn and drink together!

All BN events are ladies only, unless noted (i.e. when we crash public events like festivals, bring whoever!)

Feel free to reach out to me with any ideas of events that we could do! Especially looking for breweries or bars owned, managed, or employed by awesome ladies! Reach me at

Back story: Sarah Eshelman founded Beer Necessities in Austin Texas in September 2014, a spinoff of her friend's group in Chicago. She then moved to WA and created a Seattle Chapter. Jillian, a Portland local caught wind of this group and Sarah helped her create a chapter. I am starting a sister group/4th chapter in Philly because like Sarah and Jillian I wanted to join a group like Beer Necessities. Read more about BN-Austin here:
