Tired Hands/Facebook & Hungry Pigeon/Facebook
We’re at that point in the season when it feels like the days are slipping through our fingers like so many grains of beach sand.
Hungry Pigeon — our current Best Restaurant in Philadelphia, if you’re keeping track — gets this, and they’re teaming up with Tired Hands next week for a beer and barbecue party that will help you summer as hard as possible before September sets in.

The mad beer scientists at Ardmore’s Tired Hands Brewing Company are always coming up with new ways to enjoy their hazy, flavorful, uncommon concoctions. One way is through tasting beers alongside other foods to bring out certain flavors and aromas — something they do in their sensory-focused series of Organoleptic Cartography pairing sessions.
Their next sensory voyage happens tonight at the original Tired Hands BrewCafé with farmer and cidermaker Ben Wenk of Three Springs Fruit Farm.

But make sure it’s worth it. Thanks to Philly’s booze boom, a slew of local distilleries and breweries are turning out home-grown sips well worth the Advil.

Tired Hands Brewing now has a canning line.
Today, January 12th at 4:20 p.m., Tired Hands Brewing will be selling 200 cases of their double dry hopped pale ale, D2H3: Mosaic.
The brewery, known for their quirky, small-batch beers, just finished the canning process, so it’s going to be as fresh as you can get it, and probably delicious.
This is just the second time that Tired Hands has distributed their beer by can–last Thursday at 4:20 p.m. they sold cans of their Hophands American pale ale and their Alien Church IPA, which makes me hopeful that this is going to become a trend.
The $16 four packs will be sold at their Fermentaria at 35 Cricket Terrace in Ardmore. They will be accepting credit cards and are selling up to one case per person. It probably won’t last long.

Tired Hands Brewing’s Jean Broillet appears on an episode of Vice’s online food series, Munchies. Broillet offers a tour of his Ardmore brewery and a look behind the scenes as he brews a hoppy saison with trifoliate oranges.
This is the fourth episode of Munchies’ Craftwerk series. Prior episodes focused on Brooklyn Brewery, 3Floyds, and Dogfish Head. Definitely lofty company for Broillet and Tired Hands to be with.

Tonight, Sancho Pistola’s is hosting another of its taco exchanges. Chef Adan Trinidad has invited chef Bill Braun of Tired Hands Fermentaria to Fishtown to make carnitas fried rice tacos. There will also be four Tired Hands beers on tap.
Check out the Sancho Spielbergo video for details.

Scentless and Senseless, a beer inspired by Tired Hands resident musician, Mike Lorenz. Available at Aldine.
Aldine and Tired Hands Brewing Company are deepening their relationship. George and Jennifer Sabatino’s restaurant has featured beers from the Ardmore brewery in the past but now they are offering especially rare Tired Hands brews. The beers are available via 500 milliliter bottles and 10-ounce pours. These are the beers that create hours long lines outside the Ardmore brewery. But now limited quantities will be exclusively available at Aldine at 19th and Chestnut.
Because the beers are of limited edition, the selection will change.
These are the first beers available »
Welcome to Tap Check, an occasional update on local beers in and around Philadelphia.
We knew Tired Hands would be upping distribution with the opening of their new Fermentaria, but like Philly Tap Finder, we’re surprised just how many bars are now serving the pride of Ardmore. By PTF’s count, 22 taps and 9 different beers.
That expanded distribution is just one of the reasons we’re excited that Forest & Main is also adding space. The Ambler brewpub is adding capacity and a tasting room in the adjacent warehouse. In addition to more capacity, the expansion will pave the way for some barrel aged beers.

Tired Hands, but welcoming hands in Ardmore.
Today marks the official opening of Tired Hands Brewing Co.’s Fermentaria. Located just down the street from the original Tired Hands brew cafe, the new space will immediately more than double Tired Hands brewing capacity, with future expansion room allowing for around seven times the volume. The Fermentaria also means more room for patrons looking for a beer, a bite, and a growler fill to go. The new spot at 35 Cricket Terrace has room for 180 seated.
Tired Hands Fermentaria also has its own menu featuring tacos, ceviches and bigger plates. Chef Bill Braun, who is also the head guy at the brew cafe is in charge here as well, though with the help of Kyle Yates. Highlights of the menu, which is taco focused but not necessarily Mexican, include:
- brisket taco with Swiss cheese, caraway slaw, pickled mustard,
- patatas bravas taco with chorizo-style bulgar, goat cheese, salsa rojo
About the beer »
This Saturday, April 18th, Jean Broillet and the rest of the brew team at Tired Hands Brewing Company are hitting up five different bars, showing off beer brewed from their operational (but not yet open to the public) Fermentaria.
The brewers will be at Local 44 from 12-1 pm, Strangelove’s from 2-3 pm, Standard Tap from 4-5 pm, Memphis Taproom from 6-7 pm and Alla Spina from 8-9 pm. They’ll be pouring their popular HopHands as well as debuting Rutilant, their new IPA brewed with Nelson Sauvin and Cascade Hops.
Plan on meeting up with them at one spot or another. Just don’t follow them around all day. That’s stalking.
