Next time you’re enjoying a pint at the brewpub, check out the repurposed boat sails hanging from the ceiling. While dampening the sounds from Slayer riffs coming from the stereo, they also commemorate Dock Street Brewery & Restaurant’s recent conversion to 100% wind-powered energy. The sails come to us through donations from friends and via YMCA Camp Tockwogh in Maryland.
The guys at Need Momentum came by the Cannery to chat with us about Dock Street's roots, our marketing strategies (spoiler alert: it's whatever we think is entertaining and tasty) and our fave collabs.
Because you should never have to choose between caffeine and beer.
We've been making an espresso stout pretty much since we opened up shop in West Philly a decade ago, but for the past few years we're been working with our pals at Bean2Bean, a local, Philly-based coffee roaster that supplies a handful of restaurants, diners, bagel shops and cafes with their Fair Trade certified beans.
Just about every fall and winter now, we brew up a batch of Bean2Bean Espresso Stout using a custom blend they came up with for Dock Street that melds with and accentuates the flavors of our malt profile.
