Throughout the River Wards, beer distributors seem to come a dime a dozen. There’s one on almost every block.
That means Philadelphia Beer Company had to overcome a lot of competition to be named “Best Beer Distributor.” What led to its win?
Owner Jim Lee said that he believes the winning qualities are the friendly staff, focus on customer service and, of course, a wide selection of beers—from local favorites to beers brewed in Europe and Hawaii.
“There are so many different beers across the country… we are always trying to bring in something different and I think our customers appreciate that,” he said.
Lee added that he is thankful for the support from the local community.
“This is a great neighborhood. I couldn’t do this without such great neighbors,” he said.
In the nine years the beer distributor has been in place on York Street, Lee said he’s tried to provide a wide variety of beers, while supporting local breweries like Philadelphia Brewing Company and Yards Brewing Company.
“Local beers are something we do really well,” he said. “This really is one of the best neighborhoods I know.”
