Carrying cabernet to the city’s many BYOBs is de rigueur. As an alternative, we asked our friends at The Foodery for advice on which beers to take to our favorite liquor-free locales.
Though the restaurant has new digs, its commitment to fresh seafood remains the same. Plan on tucking into oysters? Light and refreshing Yards Philadelphia Pale Ale or Hair of the Dog’s Ruth American Ale won’t overwhelm the subtle brine.
You can get sauced on tequila during a meal at Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran’s Mexican eatery, but cerveza works just as well. Rogue Chipotle Ale’s spicy crispness is a perfect amigo to enchiladas. Those with overheated tongues can cool off with a Victory Lager.

Searching for something to go with the resto’s South American fare? The slightly smoky flavor of Helles Schlenkerla Lager tangos with savory empanadas, while the full body of Flying Fish Belgian Abbey Dubbel stands up to duck breast, skirt steak, and other rich entrees.
