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.

Or, cross the river and check out our NEW LOCATION - Dock Street South, at 2118 Washington Avenue, in Philadelphia’s Point Breeze neighborhood.

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.

docktoberfest

5.8% ABV 30 IBUs

Festbier - This golden colored medium bodied lager has a fresh bread aroma and flavor that leads to a crisp, thirst quenching finish. A perfect beer for Oktoberfest celebrations!


dock street amber ale.jpg

Amber Ale

ABV 5% 25 IBUs

The flagship Dock Street recipe 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.

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

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 Dock Street West


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.

FOOD


FOOD


Beer is great on its own, and even better when paired with incredible food and shared with friends, family, or colleagues. Complementing our handcrafted brews is a unique menu at both locations.

Dock Street West centers on an impressive lineup of hand-tossed, wood fired pizza from our EarthStone Wood Oven, char-grilled burgers, numerous vegetarian and vegan friendly options, fries and bites, plus spirits, wine, and beer cocktails. Come by for apps like our Trio Fries (potato, sweet potato and leeks), friend, Panko-crusted fresh mozzarella (a foodie-approved take on the more ubiquitous but not nearly as delicious diner version) or pizzas ranging from classic – Americana or Margherita – to culty – Flammenkuche, Fig Jam, or the mustard-topped Mellow Yellow.

Dock Street South features a menu of rotisserie, Modern Mediterranean, and European small plates with some focus on Sicilian dishes. Expect a sandwich on rustic bread with olive oil here and an inventive salad there, international cafeteria classics, and lots of good food that stands on its own and also pairs well with good beer and cocktails. (And, in the mornings, enjoy a pastry or bagel with your coffee!)
