This week (Wednesday, February 3rd will NOT be the day) will see the opening of Bar Hygge at 1720 Fairmount Avenue. The brewpub is a collaboration between two couples, brewer Tom Baker and Peggy Zwerver (Earth Bread + Brewery) and Julie and Stew Keener (West Conshohocken’s Bagataway Tavern).
Hygge means a sense of happiness in the present moment or conviviality in Danish. It is pronounced HOO-ga and makes Bagataway seem like a simple name in comparison. But Hygge is definitely a word worth seeking out and the bar was already warm and comfortable on a pre-opening Friday afternoon where Team Foobooz was lucky enough to check out Baker’s opening six taps.
