Philly Restaurant Crafts Christmas Tree from Beer Cans

More and more craft breweries across the country are canning their beers for a variety of reasons, but it’s hard to picture just how prevalent this trend has become until you see it in Christmas tree form.

The dining room at Percy Street Barbecue, a Philadelphia restaurant, now sports an 8-foot tree composed of 400 beer cans and topped with one of the galvanized steel buckets that hold the cans as they are served to customers.

General Manager Aric Ferrell and Desiree Howie, a staff member and local artist, took more than 12 hours to assemble the sculpture.

Besides slow-smoked meats and homey side dishes cooked by Chef Erin O’Shea, Percy Street boasts a long list of canned beers, the vast majority of them from craft breweries. Most of the cans used on the tree are from Percy Street’s Six Pack Program, where guests select five beers and the sixth can is on the house.

If you’re taking a Road Trip for Beer to Philadelphia, the eatery at 900 South St. would be a great addition to your itinerary. And you just might find inspiration for putting up a different kind of tree this holiday season.
