Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

McGillin’s Old Ale House

McGillin’s Old Ale House

Philadelphia’s longest-operating tavern has been pouring beer since 1860. Despite its location, nearly hidden on a side street near City Hall, McGillin’s attracts crowds for pitchers and wings and more pitchers, plus a cozy atmosphere that’s even cozier during the winter holiday season.
