Philadelphia Salvage Signs an Agreement for a Brewerytown Store

When Mugshots closed its Brewerytown location about a month ago, there was nervous chatter among people hungry for the area’s revitalization. After three years on the 2800 block of Girard Avenue, the coffee shop — popular and profitable in Fairmount — was still only breaking even. So they packed it in and moved on.

Was it a harbinger that Brewerytown’s seemingly unstoppable growth was too much, too soon? Not at all. The Mugshots storefront was quickly snapped up by another coffee shop, High Point Cafe. A brewpub — a bricks-and-mortar location for Crime and Punishment brewers — will also be coming to Girard Avenue. And now Philadelphia Salvage has sealed the deal on a Brewerytown location: 2841 Girard Avenue, to be developed with MM Partners.

The new store’s name hasn’t been decided yet. So if you have any suggestions — especially names with a Brewerytown flair — check out Philadelphia Salvage’s Facebook page.
