Earth in a Box?

earth_bread_breweryWe’ve been talking about delivery at Luke’s Lobster and Paesano’s over the past couple of days. And now comes word that Mount Airy’s Earth Bread + Brewery is finally doing takeout. After five-years in business they are finally taking call-in orders for their fine pizzas flatbreads.

Days and times may be restricted due to how busy the dining room is but the dream of walking out with a hot flatbread in a box in one hand and a growler of EB+B beer in the other, is finally a possibility. Give them a call, you might just be in luck.

Earth Opening for Weekend Lunch

EarthBreadBrewery5-G.Widman-680uw

We don’t have a lot of bad things to say about Mount Airy’s Earth Bread+Brewery. We just can’t get enough of the vibe, the flatbreads (especially the seed) and owner Tom Baker’s beers. Our only complaint would be that Germantown Avenue spot is not open for weekend lunches.

But no longer. Starting on Saturday, March 16th, Earth Bread+Brewery will begin opening on weekends at noon. It all kicks off this Saturday with a special homebrewing event with the Malt House.

Red Thunder Rumbling Into Mount Airy

Victory Brewing Co. released Red Thunder last week at their Downingtown brewery but only eight kegs of the wine barrel aged Baltic Thunder are going to make it out to other bars. Fittingly, one of the bars where the beer will be tapped at  is Earth Bread + Brewery in Mount Airy. Victory’s Baltic Thunder is based on a recipe by Tom Baker, the owner of Earth Bread + Brewery.

Head in tomorrow, Thursday, November 29th when the beer will be tapped and Victory brewers will be on hand with glassware and other giveaways.

Lunacy Returns to Earth Bread + Brewery

When Earth Bread + Brewery’s Tom Baker owned his one-man brewery, Heavyweight Brewing, one of his most popular and most praised beers was Heavyweight Lunacy. The Belgian ale hasn’t been brewed since he closed the New Jersey brewery and subsequently opened Earth Bread + Brewery in Mount Airy. But now he’s brought it back. So race on out to Mount Airy to get this golden ale. Tomorrow would be a good day since it is also EB+B’s fourth anniversary.
