Philadelphia is known as the Quaker City, also the Cradle of Liberty. Now, it has landed another distinction: the best beer-drinking city in America.Don Russell, known to Philadelphia Daily News readers as Joe Sixpack, just published a book declaring that as fact.

It is called "Joe Sixpack's Philly Beer Guide."

It spotlights taverns in neighborhoods city-wide. In Center City, it features Tria at 18th and Sansom. Regulars there don't settle for just one brew.

Author Russell consumed his share of beers researching the book. Along the way, he became convinced that Philadelphians are pretty sophisticated about their beer.
