what’s going on at Dock Street Brewery
and Dock Street Cannery + Tasting Lounge

Come by Dock Street Brewpub for a great, laid-back spot to hang out with friends and family, enjoy hand-tossed, wood-fired pizza, fresh beer poured direct from the tanks, or a brewery tour. (Or all of the above.) Check back often for updates like new additions to the menu for game days, parties and holidays. Then, swing by Dock Street Cannery + Tasting Lounge, voted Philadelphia Magazine’s Best New Bar, located right next door to the main brewpub but with a separate entrance. There, you’ll find craft cocktails with house-made syrups and Pennsylvania spirits, and of course, Dock Street Beer. We're also known to throw a mean party over there, featuring any and everything from comedy, prose reading, cheese-making, glass-blowing, mezcal tasting and live tattooing.

We add a couple new beers a week to the tap and can lineup each week, so there's always something new, delicious, and timely - cue some solid, award-winning dark beers for winter, refreshing weisse beers for summer, and everything in between. Our brewers are getting more creative and more consistently amazing by the day, so it just keeps getting better.

Fall Beers

MAN FULL OF TROUBLE PORTER
ABV 5.2% 30 IBUs

2017 WINNER - BRONZE MEDAL, GREAT AMERICAN BEER FESTIVAL®

A liquid nod to the only pre-revolutionary tavern still standing in The City of Brotherly Love. “Man Full of Trouble” was one of Colonial Philadelphia’s first watering holes. This London Style Porter was brewed with “Old-World” in mind. Black and chocolate malts create its deep mahogany appearance and creamy espresso-like flavor. A blend of English East Kent Goldings and Fuggles hops lends a delicate earthy presence.

Crumbling Man

7.5% 69 IBUs

Double IPA - Brewed with a blend of three base malts, flaked wheat and flaked oats, and a small percentage of dextrose. Hopped a total rate of 3.5lb per bbl with mostly Falconer's Flight for a sticky hop body, resinous mouthfeel, and an intrepid aroma. These are end times, drink up.


BEAN2BEAN espresso stout.JPG

bean2bean ESPRESSO STOUT

ABV 6.5% 53 IBUs

Intense aromas of espresso and dark chocolate precede this rich, elegant stout. Medium-bodied with a pleasant sweetness. Conditioned atop pounds and pounds of coffee beans from bean2bean, this beer will wake you up with a kick of caffeine and fresh-brewed, roasty coffee goodness. Feel free to enjoy this one with brunch, or as an after-dinner nightcap.

DUAL-CITY RELEASE: DOWN THE STREET

5.8% ABV, 25 IBUs

Dock Street Brewery collaborated with Down the Road Brewery of Everett, MA on this tea-infused brew, proving that when beer is involved, we can put our rivalry behind us. After a few days of Philly imbibing, DSB and DTR hit the brewhouse to create this beer using local Orange Blossom Honey and Sencha Matcha Green Tea, 2-Row, Maris Otter, and Wheat. Down the Street is hopped and dry hopped with Loral, Czech Saaz, and Citra. The label artwork is a collaboration between Philly-based artist Alexis Grant and Boston-based artist Sarah Dahlinger, representing both cities and featuring the skyline, symbols and iconography of both locations.

Dock Street golden ipa

ABV 6.0% 45 IBUs

We designed this golden-hued, American IPA so that hop flavor and aroma are the primary experience. Oats and a touch of caramel malt make for a mouth coating light body balanced with medium bitterness.

Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe, and Amarillo hops create flavors and aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, and just a hint of pine.


rye+IPA.JPG

RYE IPA

ABV 6.8% 64 IBUs

An aggressively hopped American Style India Pale Ale brewed with Columbus, Simcoe and Amarillo hops. The use of 20% rye gives this ale it's trademark dry and spicy character. It's been voted among the Top 15 Rye Beers in the World on Beer Advocate.

BOHEMIAN PILSNER

ABV 5% 40 IBUs

Brewed in the style of the original pilsner beers of Bohemia in a tradition that dates back to 1842. We use pilsner malts and a generous amount of Bohemian Saaz Hops to produce a golden color, soft, nutty malt flavor and floral hop bouquet.

The Origin Story.


The Origin Story.


Here’s the short version.

We started in 1985, amidst a proverbial sea of watered down and adjunct-plagued lagers, as one of the first post-prohibition craft breweries in the country - and Philly’s first all-grain brewpub.

Now, we call a firehouse at 50th and Baltimore Avenue home. We’ve come a long way since our first location at 18th and Cherry – 3.9 miles, to be exact – but to this day, countless craft beer drinkers credit Dock Street as the beer that turned them away from yellow-tinged macro-brews and corn-infused light lager.

We’re known as much for our fearless experimental beers like the Walker (brewed with goat brains in honor of our favorite show, The Walking Dead) as for staples like our Bohemian Pilsner or our Prince Myshkin Russian Imperial Stout, one of the highest rated beers out there.

What's In A Name?


What's In A Name?


Our name, Dock Street, was chosen in honor of the seaport district which was, in the late 1700's, the largest producer of beer in the then-newly-formed country.

Today, we still brew with the spirit of Philadelphia's sudsy history, and Dock St. (pictured above, in 1908) in mind.

In fact, it wasn’t unusual to find pirates and statemen alike sitting elbow to elbow and minding their P’s and Q’s at the taverns lining Dock Street all those centuries ago, and we like to think that things are no different at our place in West Philadelphia nowadays.

Visit us.


Visit us.


Dock Street Brewery practices the craft in the ground floor of a 110-year-old firehouse at the corner of 50th and Baltimore Avenue in West Philadelphia.

We converted roughly one third of the firehouse into a production brewery, devoting the rest of the space to a sensory-stimulating restaurant. Many of our draft beers travel less than 65 feet from conditioning tanks in the brewery straight to the pint glasses and mouths of our patrons, making our offerings quite literally some of the freshest beers available.

In 2017, we converted the garage next door on 50th Street into a canning facility and lounge. Here, we ferment, age, and can beer onsite round-the-clock, and the bar there is open for beer, draft wine, a few classic cocktails and beer cocktails (both draft and made-to-order) plus small bites Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
