Crime & Punishment’s Adam Fussaro

Over the weekend, Brewerytown’s Crime & Punishment Brewing Co. began brewing its first production beers. It marks the first time the Philadelphia neighborhood, named for its at-one-time numerous breweries, has had the smell of brewing in the air for more than twenty years.

Not bad for the slowest time of year for restaurants.
