Today marks the opening day of both Barren Hill Tavern & Brewery and the reopening of Brittingham’s Irish Pub & Restaurant. It’s a big moment for Lafayette Hill as the two establishments that face each other across Germantown Pike have both been substantially upgraded.
Erin Wallace who owns Devil’s Den and Old Eagle Tavern has overhauled the old General Lafayette Inn. Head Brewer Scott Morrison (a five time medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival) is brewing six house-made brews. Twenty-four other craft beers will be available on draft. Chef Paul Trowbridge has developed a menu of beer-inspired food.
Barren Hill Tavern may not be open yet but head brewer Scott Morrison has been hard at work brewing beers. And tonight, Devil’s Den will be putting his first six creations on tap. Barren Hill Tavern will replace the General Lafayette Inn in Lafayette Hill and will be run by same team that’s behind Devil’s Den and Manayunk’s Old Eagle Tavern.
With the debut of the beers tonight at 7 p.m., you can expect Morrison’s beers to be a permanent part of Devil’s Den’s draft lines.
Fall officially arrives this weekend and the season promises to be a busy one for Philadelphia’s restaurant scene. Here are some of the projects that we’re most looking forward to checking out.
