In 1988, two cash-strapped collegiate wrestlers emptied their savings to get started and began making beer in a small, garage-sized brewery in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia— crafting cask-conditioned ales on a tiny, homemade, three-barrel brewing system. Their lineup included such cult favorites as the Entire Porter and the Old Bart. Upon unveiling their Extra Special Ale at the Philadelphia Craft Beer Festival in April of 1995, beer drinkers in Philadelphia were flabbergasted. A star was born.
When it comes to brewing, we’re mindful not only about what we make, but how we make it. Our new brewery is the first 100% wind-powered brewery in Pennsylvania. We send all our cardboard and glass to be recycled through the rad dudes at Pedal Co-Op, and let local farm animals feed off our spent grains. Additionally, we’ve minimized wastewater and collect and re-use our hot water whenever possible.
