With the Phillies finally getting their home opener underway versus the Royals, tens of thousands of fans thirsty for baseball and all the incredible craft beer on tap at Citizens Bank Park will be heading down to Pattison Avenue.

For fans of both, the indecision can be painful: Wander around looking for that prized HopDevil and risk missing a Ryan Howard Homer? Pah!

Here’s a little list of some of the best craft brews at CBP and where you can find them:

Victory Brewing Co.’s Prima Pils is a perfect pour on a hot summer day, but also look for their Summer Love Ale, out early at CPB.

They were kind enough to provide a list of sections where Victory is poured AND a little section map, too.
