Parks on Tap is Philadelphia’s traveling beer garden that gives back! It is a partnership with Philadelphia Parks and RecreationFairmount Park Conservancyand Avram Hornik of FCM Hospitality that brings a beer garden to 20 different parks for 20 weeks. Parks on Tap is an initiative with the city that kicked off in 2016, aiming to engage the Philadelphia community and give back to the neighborhood parks.

We provide fresh food, beer on tap, wine, snacks, and non-alcoholic beverages in a festive outdoor environment featuring comfortable chairs and hammocks, and clean restrooms. We also offer a variety of family friendly activities and weekly programming. This year’s menu is brought to you by Brandon Thomas and Alex Bois offering a variety of barbecue inspired sandwiches and snacks all cooked in house with a custom John Lewis smoker truck which can be seen on site.
