One more zoning meeting…

So what’s next?

Word came back to me over the weekend that the vote in South Kensington was 26-0 in favor of my brewery and brew pub project.  I'm absolutely thrilled that neighborhood residents were so positive.  I feel that St Benjamin can bring a lot that is positive to the community and it is nice that others [...]

Zoning Follow up + Tonight’s Tasting

Wednesday's zoning meeting went pretty smoothly.  People were very receptive to the idea of both a brewery and a brewpub.  And unlike in Fishtown, no one yelled or made wild accusations.  Next month there will be a follow up meeting where the neighborhood votes.

What’s up with opening the brewery?

I got a lot of questions about what was going on with my brewery building during beer week.  Friend, family and total strangers were curious, and the encouragement I received was great.  In order to keep from repeating myself, though, I thought I'd let you know here what the status is. Here's the quick version: [...]

Beer Week Events!

Beer Week is here and even though the brewery isn't open yet, we have plenty of events and tastings. Sunday the 3rd is a double-header.  Even better, both events are free tastings of our homebrew, though the bars wouldn't mind if you got some food while you were there. From 11-2pm, we will be serving [...]

First up is the Fishtown Neighbors Association 2nd Annual Chili Cookoff on Sunday, March 25th.  Of course there will be chili, from ten local restaurants as well as residents, but more importantly there [...]
