Beer week in Philadelphia

Philadelphia isn't just the City of Brotherly Love.

It's the city of suds, at least to Philly beer lovers.

Philadelphia is out to prove its claim with Philly Beer Week, a 10-day, 150-event brewski spectacular.

Don Russell, who writes a beer column under the name Joe Sixpack, says Philadelphia is the best beer-drinking city in America.

Historians note Philadelphia founder William Penn had a brewery.

The festival suds start flowing Friday, when Philly Mayor Michael Nutter taps the first keg.
