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 [...]

Homeless no more!

At long last a few weeks ago I signed the papers for the brewery to move in to an industrial space I've been waiting over a year for this to happen and I am so relieved and excited that it is over. I never expected it to take this long, when I started looking for [...]

What’s new in the new year

There hasn't been much to report on publicly for a while but I do have some tastings and a bigger announcement in the works for the coming weeks.  In the mean time I have been brewing away and hopefully you'll spot my beer out there soon.  I've also started writing a beer column called "Think [...]

The search continues…

Once again it has been a while since I updated, quite a while in fact.  This is because sadly not much has changed.  I've been brewing like a madman for some fall events (more on that in the next post) and continuing to search for a location.  I thought I had a few locked in [...]

What’s new?

I've been in a bit of a lull since beer week.  I was cleaned out of all the beer I brewed so I've been stocking up for whatever random events turn up later this summer.  On a whim I made my first cream ale, I thought it might be refreshing, it could also taste like [...]

Beer Week Recap

The funny thing about Philly Beer Week is that it is like visiting a foreign country.  You are overwhelmed by so many sights and sounds and things to do you have a hard time getting a grasp on anything.   Decision paralysis can set in even.  A week later when you are on your way to [...]

Philly Beer Week First Weekend Roundup

Well the first weekend of Philly Beer Week was pretty awesome.  I had the opportunity to serve my beers at Opening Tap and at Beer Camp.  It was also great to meet some other new nanobrewers and people who want to open breweries, including St. Boniface, Round Guys, Mellody Brewing and Urban Brewing. At each [...]

Philly Beer Week

It is with much anticipation that I wait for this year's Philly Beer Week to start this Friday.  Part of the reason is that I've been asked to serve my beer at not one or two but THREE events!  I'll put a summary here for anyone who isn't already following on FB or twitter. Opening [...]
