More Than Just Beer

Bill and Nancy of Philadelphia Brewing Co.
Philadelphia Weekly’s cover story this week features Bill and Nancy Barton, the brewers and Fishtown activists behind the Philadelphia Brewing Co.

The Bartons quickly became active members of the evolving community. They joined civic association boards, worked with other local businesses, sponsored community events, and donated beer and time. Slowly, in part because of their efforts, the area is becoming lively again.

“It just needed to happen,” Bill says. “Something needed to change.”

Look for first beers to hit the taps by the end of the month.
