The following is a comprehensive list of beers made by Philadelphia and other local breweries, including New Jersey and Delaware, inspired by the Philadelphia Eagles who brought the first Super Bowl home to Philadelphia in 2017. I try to keep this post updated as often as possible, but shoot me a DM on Instagram if you know of any changes.
CURRENTLY IN PRODUCTION:
Brewery ARS is a “South Philly garage brewery” located in Philadelphia’s West Passyunk neighborhood. The Brewery ARS Philly Special is an IPA with Centennial & Citra hops. There is a cartoon of a dog inspired by the Eagles’ “underdog” masks from the 2017-2018 season. It is only available at their brewery on a rotational basis.
Broken Goblet No One Likes Us, We Don’t Care is an unfiltered IPA inspired by Jason Kelce’s historic speech during the Eagles Super Bowl Parade. Broken Goblet introduced this beer to the world with a can release and an appearance by Jason Kelce himself at the brewery. The Broken Goblet brewmaster and Jason Kelce have a personal relationship. They’ve brewed beer together. Originally, this beer was brewery-only, but they expanded to distribute 16oz cans to the Philadelphia area last year. No One Likes Us, We Don’t Care can be found at Broken Goblet’s brewery in Bensalem or at local beer distributors a few times a year.
Evil Genius Fly Like An Eagle is a water ice (“WOODER ice”) inspired New England IPA brewed with lactose and vanilla. Water ice is a Philadelphia staple, as are its beloved sports teams. What better way to celebrate the hometown heroes than to create a beer that reflects Philly pride as much as water ice. This beer is only released in small batches of draft and 16oz cans at their Fishtown brewpub.
Flying Fish Go Birds is a pale ale from the Somerdale, New Jersey brewery. After receiving a cease and desist letter from the Philadelphia Eagles for using an eagle on the label, they were forced to change the image to the Flying Fish logo. It was recently distributed throughout the area.
Iron Hill Hungry Dog: This beer was inspired by the greatest speech of all-time in Philadelphia sports history. In the words of Jason Kelce, “Hungry dogs run faster.”
Iron Hill Philly Special is Iron Hill Brewery’s version of a juicy New England IPA, named after the infamous play that helped the Philadelphia Eagles win their first Super Bowl. Their draft list is seasonal, but this beer is a winner!
The Larimer Bird Gang: The Larimer is a brewery out of Colorado that recently opened another brewery in Chester, PA located across the street from Talen Energy Stadium. You can grab this brew before a Philadelphia Union game or have it anywhere while you root for the birds!
Locust Lane Craft Brewery Game Day IPA originally sported a Mosaic of Bryce Harper on the label, but they recently changed it to Carson Wentz, our beloved starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, adding the Locust Lane Game Day IPA to the list of Philadelphia Eagles themed beers. Locust Lane Craft Brewery is located just a short SEPTA ride away from Philly in Malvern, PA. A limited quantity of the Game Day IPA with the Carson Wentz label was distributed throughout the area.
Moss Mill Brewing Da Birds: Moss Mill is an off-the-radar brewery in Huntingdon Vallet, PA. Da Birds is a Kolsch style ale brewed with hops that spell out E-A-G-L-E-S (El dorado, Amarillo, Galaxy, Liberty, Ekuanot, and Simcoe). Proceeds benefit the Eagles Autism Challenge.
Rebel Hill Bleed Green is an IPA brewed by Rebel Hill in Phoenixville, PA. Another iteration is Double dry-hopped Bleen Green, the same recipe, but another dose of hops is added during fermentation, allowing for more dankness without the bitterness that is extracted in the boil. Rebel Hill stated Bleed Green will be available for the entire duration of the Eagles’ 2019 season at their brewery in Phoenixville, PA. 16 oz cans of DDH Bleed Green will also be available.
Round Guys Rye Eagles Rye is a rye IPA brewed in Lansdale that can often be found at distributors in the area. The rye contributes a spicy malt character in addition to the hops.
Roy Pitz 4 The Win was named after the Philadelphia Eagles’ kicker Jake Elliott (#4). This beer is a New England IPA brewed with Marris Otter malt and lactose, then hopped with Simcoe, Mosaic, and Galaxy. Roy Bitz Brewing Company is located in Chambersburg, PA, and they have a brewpub in Philadelphia.
Stable 12 Underdog Lager is an amber lager brewed in Phoenixville, PA. Amber Lagers have a toasty, caramel-like malt character. At 4.1%, this beer is perfect for the big game, but don’t count it out because of the low ABV. This beer is packed with flavor!
Weyerbacher Dallas Sucks is perhaps the best known Philadelphia Eagles themed beer from Pennsylvania (Easton). Dallas Sucks is a pale ale that was originally brewed in collaboration with Jose Pistola’s Mexican restaurant in Philadelphia. One thing Philadelphia sports fans love more than beer is mocking the Dallas Cowboys, our division rivals. Weyerbacher is a large scale distribution brewery so this beer can be found throughout the tri-state area. Dallas Sucks was recently distributed in 16 oz “pounder” cans. “This one’s for the fans.”
NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION:
Imprint Beer Co. Double Doink was brewed during the 2018-2019 NFL Playoffs. The name stems from the infamous field goal missed by Cody Parkey that ended the Bears season. Imprint’s Double Doink was only brewed once and lasted a few weeks at their Hatfield brewery.
Imprint Beer Co. Gang Green 92 was a hazy IPA from the Hatfield brewery that celebrated the Eagles’ early 90s defense called “Gang Green.” There was a can release on Friday, September 27th. Imprint’s beers are very limited, and they brewed a second version called Gang Green 99 that was available on tap at their Hatfield brewery for a short time as well.
Lancaster Brewing Company 41-33 Lager was a triumph for lagers everywhere. The name was inspired by the score of Super Bowl 53. It’s crisp and refreshing with a smooth malt backbone. Winning is for the birds.
Urban Village Fiddy Two was a small release IPA from the Northern Liberties brewpub, aptly named after the Eagles’ Super Bowl “Fiddy Two” win. It was an IPA brewed with 100% Galaxy hops, appropriately for the greatest football team in the galaxy. Limited quantities were distributed throughout the Philadelphia area.
Well-Crafted Gisele’s Tears was an IPA brewed with 100% pure failure and envy harvested in New England in February 2018. These flavors blend perfectly with late additions of El Dorado and Vic Secret hops. Notes of ripe pineapple, passionfruit, wildflower honey, and fresh-squeezed orange juice. Well-Crafted Beer Co. is a craft brewery located in Lansdale, PA.
