Crime & Punishment Brewing Kicks Off Fundraiser with a Concert

Crime and Punishment Brewing Co. is hoping to put the brew back in the Brewerytown neighborhood of Philadelphia. This Saturday the potential brewpub unveils its crowd-sourced fundraising campaign with an evening of live music, Russian dishes and of course craft beer.

Brewers Michael Wambolt and Michael Paul will be serving up four of their beers, all inspired by Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Among the beers pouring, The Guillotine, a saison brewed with blood oranges and hibiscus and Grand Theft Polka, an oak-smoked Polish wheat beer.

The free event begins at 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 12th at 2711 Girard Avenue, the future home of Crime and Punishment Brewing Co. Indiegogo donation rewards will be revealed throughout the night, between sets by local bands.

Wam conceived of C&P while earning his masters in theology. His first fermentations were inspired by the words of great thinkers, including Dostoyevsky. Wambolt and Paul aim to bring brewing back to Brewerytown, a neighborhood that was once home to over 20 breweries.
