Crime & Punishment Is Coming to Brewerytown in 2014


First Friday at Pizza Brain last week was a bit crazy, crowded with folks intrigued by that evening’s special: Federal Donuts spicy pizza slices topped with — what else? — chicken and donuts. In the backyard, there was an encore performance by Crime & Punishment Brewing Co., which serves up free beer every First Friday. This time, they offered two solid ales, one Farmhouse and one Peanut Butter & Jelly.

Crime & Punishment owner Michael Wambolt, who lives in Brewerytown with his wife Allison McClain, was excitedly talking about his bricks-and-mortar location that will open in 2014 on Girard Avenue, which he believes will contribute to the neighborhood’s increasing revitalization. Wambolt, formerly a beer blogger, has been working with MM Partners on the real estate piece.
