Both Philly.com, Philebrity and Eater have posted articles about the progress of construction at the brewery, check them out!
Construction is moving along, we are only a few weeks away from brewing our first batch! Most of the utility work is done and next week we will have our new electric service in the building! A lot of our equipment has arrived, we will spend the next two weeks hooking everything up. What this [...]
If you've been following our other social media, you may know that last week @stbenjaminbrew and @christinabrews were in Denver for the Craft Brewer's Conference. Lest you think it was just a week of drinking beer, we were hard at work the entire time (well, most of the time). There was a trade show for buying [...]
Not a ton of changes to the brewery this week, but the place has been cleaned up and ready for our floors to be coated next week. The week after will be a big one, our equipment is being moved to the site! We will post a ton of pictures then, the brewery will be [...]

More importantly, it means our equipment can be moved to the building [...]
We were interviewed, along with several area brewers, in a great article on starting a brewery. Check out From dream to drink: How to start a craft brewery in Pennsylvania The author, Dan Eldridge, also did a nice profile on the brewery for Flying Kite Media.
The plumbers have been hard at work on our brewery building for the past 6 weeks or so. It is a massive upgrade to the building infrastructure, but we are happy that all of the underground work has been completed. This involved brining in both a 2" and a 4" water main and replacing all [...]
It is a new year and our opening is only a few months away! As you may have gathered, we didn't win the trip to Belgium. That is ok, there is always next year. Our sincere congratulations go out to Justin Neuner and Justin Low who won, we can't wait try the beer they brew. [...]
Sorry for the dearth of updates lately, we have been bogged down in what I'll refer to as "Building Permit Hell". We have waited patiently for about 2 months for the City of Philadelphia to issue construction permits so we can build our brewery. We hope to have them in hand by the end of [...]
