We have six beers on tap and one in a cask at our brewpub, and they rotate often. (Plus two bottled brews, our Rye IPA and Bohemian Pilsner, as well as some limited release specialty 750ml bottles.) Some of the draft beers come straight from the tanks - can't get fresher than that!
Our brewers are constantly coming up with new recipes, experimenting with ingredients, or reviving old classics from our thirty year portfolio of brews. We have a solid roster of year-round staples, like our Rye IPA, and seasonals like our Bohemian Pilsner, Man Full of Trouble Porter, and Summer in Berlin that make regular appearances. We strive to complement these mainstays with more creative, eclectic brews, featuring anything from wild yeasts and bacteria, fresh fruits and veggies, chocolate, coffee, spices, teas, various wine and spirit barrels, brains (this one time), Himalayan Pink Salt, and even the musical stylings of Wu Tang Clan.
Here's what's currently on tap:
4.8% ABV 30 IBUs
Pale Ale - This fruity pale ale is named after the mandarin orange it imitates. The addition of 10% rye malt gives this beer a unique spice character that pairs with an incredibly smooth light body. Hopped with Wakatu, Saphir, Chinook, and Willamette to impart flavors/aromas of sweet citrus and floral spice. Endlessly drinkable.
4.2% 28 IBUs
Biere de Mars is an ode to Spring, traditionally made after the first grain harvest. This pale, very dry amber beer is made to satisfy thirst. A quaffable beer meant to pair well with any great meal, it is lightly dry hopped to accentuate the subtle fruity ester profile created by the yeast during fermentation.
5.0% 25 IBUs
The flagship Dock Street beer from the 1980's, made right here in West Philly. Brewed with American Cascade hops and 2 row pale and caramel malts. It's medium-bodied, exceptionally balanced, and always admired for its clean smooth finish.
JIP THE BLOOD
4.5% ABV 4 IBUs
Blood Orange Berliner Weisse - Our nod to the eponymous early immigrant to South Philly's Italian Market, this Double Berliner is conditioned atop blood orange puree. The initial lactic punch is balanced by a slightly-sweet citrus body, with a finish that is refreshingly crisp and tart.
6.0% BV 45 IBUs
American IPA - We designed this golden-hued, clear 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.
MAN FULL OF TROUBLE PORTER
5.2% ABV 30 IBUs
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.
ROTATING BEER ON CASK:
Primed with orange blossom honey and conditioned on Bean2Bean Espresso.
Developed in England prior to refrigeration, beer was conditioned and served at ‘cellar temperature’ (55-60 F). Post fermentation, un-carbonated beer is casked with doses of yeast and sugar. A secondary fermentation occurs, producing alcohol and CO2, which dissolves and naturally carbonates the beer. Expect a gently carbonated pour, showcasing different flavors and aromas at warmer temperatures.We always have new beers waiting in the wings, so this list is subject to change. (But we promise, whatever else is on tap next will be just as great.)
