Dock Street Brewery is one of those places that never stops pushing. When it first opened in 1985, it was the first brewpub the city’s ever seen, not to mention one of the first post-prohibition craft breweries in the country. They were brewing Royal Bohemian Pilsners and Amber Ales during the dark ages of light lagers and macro-brews. When the city finally jumped on the craft beer train, they kept on keeping on with goat brain beer, anti-Trump beer and Wu Tang beer. They’ve even launched an offshoot distilling company, Dock Street Spirits.
And now, again, something new: the Dock Street Cannery and Tasting Lounge, opening on April 27th (next Thursday).
The Friday festivities will run from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. and will feature Sly Fox and Weyerbacher as the featured breweries. All you need is a free wristband and proper ID to attend. There will also be Beer Quizzo and a Brewer talk from Sly Fox’s Brian O’Reilley.
Saturday’s festivities run from 12 to 8 p.m., serving beers from Yuengling, Twin Lakes, Evil Genius, and Cape May Brewery. Live music will also be on hand. Sunday’s events will be from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., with brews from Dock Street and wine from Hauser Estate Winery. A home brewing demonstration will also be part of the day.
The events are completely free, and attendees can have up to six two-ounce samples per person.
