McGillin's to Serve Red Beer to Celebrate Phillies World Series Run

Businesses throughout the area are celebrating the Philadelphia Phillies’ World Series run, including the oldest bar in the city. 

McGillin’s Olde Ale House, located on 1310 Drury Street between Chestnut and Sansom and 13th and Juniper, will serve red beer in honor of the Phillies, starting Wednesday at 11 a.m. 

“McGillin’s has served green beer (for the Eagles and for St. Patrick’s Day) and blue beer (for Villanova) but in its 162 years, the historic tavern has NEVER served RED BEER — until today,” a spokesperson wrote.

McGillin’s opened in 1860, making it Philadelphia’s oldest tavern. A spokesperson for the bar pointed out that it’s also 23 years older than the Phillies, which is the oldest continuous same-name, same-city franchise in all of American professional sports. 

“By the time the Phillies were born, McGillin’s was already old enough to drink,” the spokesperson joked.
