Philadelphia, PA (May 27, 2016) – This summer, Center City District and 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey will partner again for the return of Center City District Sips, the much anticipated, warm-weather Happy Hour tradition in Center City Philadelphia.

Beginning June 1 and continuing officially for the first time through September, Center City District Sips takes place Wednesday evenings from 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. through September 28.

Center City District Sips brings thousands of Philadelphians, office workers, students, commuters and anyone who enjoys al fresco tables, bar windows wide open, refreshing drinks on hot summer days and toasting friends during the happiest of hours. More than 80 official participating bars and restaurants will offer $5 cocktails featuring 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey, $4 wine, $3 beer and half-priced appetizers.

Founded by Kiernan Folliard, 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey is proud to be the 2016 sponsor of Center City District Sips. 2 GINGERS Irish Whiskey offers a differentiated approach to whiskey, using its trademarked signature cocktail, the BIG GINGER, to target and convert traditional non-whiskey drinking into the brand and category.

Join in Center City District Sips every Wednesday at bars such as BRU Craft & Wurst, Craftsman Row Saloon, Gran Caffe L'Aquila, Marathon Grill, Opa and Drury Beer Garden, Smith’s Restaurant and Bar, and more (please see full list of participants below).

For Sippers who want to stay for dinner, participating restaurants will offer a 15% discount following the happy hour special. With the abundant options of popular bars and restaurants in Center City, Sips is a great way to meet new people, try new drinks and dishes, and visit new places. For more information about Sips, please follow @CCDSips on Twitter.

About 2 Gingers:
2 GINGERS® Irish Whiskey was created by Irishman Kieran Folliard, who was inspired by his red-headed (“ginger”) mother, Mary, and aunt, Delia, to follow his passion and make a go of a good idea. 2 GINGERS® Irish Whiskey is a product of this notion. Although this blended whiskey is made in Ireland, it was launched and sold exclusively in Minnesota before expanding nationally. It is distributed in Philadelphia by Southern Wine and Spirits, a partner of Center City District Sips. For more information, visit 2gingerswhiskey.com.
