Help Puerto Rico, Get Free Rare Beer at Dock Street Cannery

The good folks at Dock Street Brewery make it a habit of supporting their community. Their regular Free Rare Beers for School Supplies program gives beer lovers the opportunity to bring in essential items that go to neighborhood schools and educational programs like Mighty Writers. Customers trade those supplies for special-edition brews.

On Thursday, October 12th, they’re shifting their focus: Instead of notebooks and backpacks, they’re collecting much-needed items to send to the victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico at their small plates-and-cocktails offshoot, Dock Street Cannery & Lounge, around the corner from the brewery at 705 South 50th Street.

Dock Street Celebrates a Decade in West Philly With Beer (Obviously) and $25 Tattoos (Really)

Dock Street Brewery/Facebook

Dock Street Brewery is one of the city’s oldest existing craft brewers — they’ve been at it since 1985. And 2017 marks 10 years in the West Philly firehouse space that’s home to their pizzeria, brewery, canning line, and tasting room.

Naturally, they’re throwing a party to celebrate — and they’re providing a memento that will last quite a bit longer than the buzz from your beer.

Dock Street Brewery Has a New Side Hustle

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).

Sometimes, life hands you some difficult decisions, and this weekend we have to make a really hard one: when we inevitably wake up with an excruciating hangover from Oktoberfest at Alla Spina (or from whatever our Saturday night plans happen to be), will we brave techno and deep house music for the reward of hand-tossed brunch pizzas, biscuits, craft beer and “beerdrivers” at Dock Street Brewery?
