Now grandly open, the Di Bruno Bros. Bottle Shop at the Franklin.

Di Bruno Bros. celebrates the grand opening of its Bottle Shop at the Franklin today. The beer store within the Di Bruno Bros. store at 9th and Sansom offers more than the typical bottle shop thanks to cheese pairings created by Di Bruno’s cheese experts and the chance to enjoy a beer along with “the holy grail of meat,” four slices of Jamon Iberico de Bellota.

Curated and run by triple-certified Jeffrey Dimaio, the bottle shop is a chance for Di Bruno Bros. to show off their extensive knowledge in a new way. Dimaio is a sommelier, cicerone (beer sommelier) and certified cheese professional. Di Bruno has the second most certified cheese pros in the country, only trailing Whole Foods. At the Bottle Shop, Dimaio gets to show how well beer and cheese can pair.

The bottle shop at the Di Bruno Bros. location at 9th and Chestnut is getting close to opening. Groundswell Design (who you know from their work at Spruce Street Harbor Park and the PHS Pop-Up Beer Gardens) installed the tables and chairs last night and the beer is being ordered.

Once the license approvals are set, the Bottle Shop at the Franklin will softly launch with beer. Then expect a grand opening in mid to late June when the shop gets its own menu of cheese flights, charcuterie boards and more.

We can’t wait.
