Battle of the Best Fall Seasonal Beers

pumkingSummer seemed to fly by this year, but with one of the best beer seasons ahead to look forward to, maybe that’s not such a bad thing! While the summer blonde and wheat beer styles are being replaced by popular fall ales, we wanted to focus on two of the most well-known seasonal brews – pumpkin and Oktoberfest ales!

When it comes to seasonal beers, pumpkin ales are a perennial favorite and names like Southern Tier’s Pumking are even downright legendary. At the Las Vegas Lounge, we have had some of the best pumpkin beers on tap in the past – so don’t be surprised if you see one or two this season, too!

What fall beer checklist is complete without an Oktoberfest? We’re definitely big fans of the style and we’ve already got Flying Fish’s renowned Oktoberfish on deck in the weeks ahead. They go great with lunch, or you can kick a few back at our Philadelphia late night happy hour.

So, what’s your favorite fall beer style? Pumpkin beer, Oktoberfest ale? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter and stop in to try one for yourself!

Summer Flavor Comes to the Las Vegas Lounge

cubanThe sun has returned to Philadelphia and the warm weather has come with it!  To start the season off right, the best bar in Center City Philadelphia is prepared to help you beat the heat with some of our newest beer selections and great food options!


Looking to try a lighter beer that’s perfect for warmer wearther? The Gaffel Kolsch is a German-style kolsch (only 4.8 ABV) – so you can kick back and enjoy a few on draft. Oh, did and we mention that this and most of our other on-tap selections are 20 oz pours? Another great session beer is Southern Tier’s Live Pale Ale. This summer favorite is back for a limited time at the Las Vegas Lounge, so don’t miss it!


If you’re hungry, we’ve got you covered. For lighter fare, try our cornmeal crusted fried shrimp with remoulade or cocktail sauce. It’s a great appetizer to share with friends or you can add fries to make it a meal! Want something even bigger? Try our panini-style Cuban sandwich with roast pork, ham, swiss cheese, pickles and mustard. It’s the perfect summer meal and pairs well with almost any lighter style beer.

5 Great Craft Beers to Try This Year

Neon Las Vegas Lounge Sign


Last month, we covered our Top Craft Beers of 2014 here on Needless to say, we served some great, popular brews last year. But with a new year, comes even more great beer options!

We’ve put together a list of 5 beers that all craft beer fans must try in 2015. Still need a New Year’s Resolution? Try one of these this year at Las Vegas Lounge, one of the best craft beer bars in Center City Philadelphia!

Troegs Nugget Nectar
When Troegs Brewing Company stopped into the Las Vegas Lounge in 2014 to give our customers a taste of Nugget Nectar, we knew this popular amber/red lager would return in 2015. If you missed it last year, give it a shot this year!

21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon
A fruity beer with a hint of watermelon flavor, the Hell or High Watermelon by 21st Amendment got a lot of attention with craft beer fanatics last year. If you haven’t tried it yet, this year-round beer will likely be on draft at the Las Vegas Lounge at some point in 2015.

Bell’s Two Hearted Ale
One of the most popular India Pale Ales out there, the Two Hearted Ale from Bell’s is definitely worth a try! Recommended for fans of Imperial and American-style IPAs.

Victory Dirt Wolf
This double IPA packs a punch at 8.7% ABV, but the “world-class” rating on is hard to disagree with. One of the best double IPAs on the market and we are almost certainly bringing it back on tap in 2015.

Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin
Weyerbacher’s popular pumpkin ale was a favorite amongst craft beer drinkers in 2014 and this seasonal brew is likely to return to LVL in 2015!
