TONIGHT: Dock Street Returns to Logan Circle
Dock Street Brewery is an old dog by craft brewing standards. The brewery opened in 1985 and in the early 1990s it was the 26th largest microbreweries in the US, producing over 28,000 barrels of beer and distributing to 26 states plus France. During this time it opened a brewpub at 18th and Cherry Streets.
Fast forward to 2014 and the brewery, which is now based out of an old firehouse in West Philadelphia is coming home for one night only. Tonight, Monday, November 10th, Dock Street will be bringing some kegs of its beer and inviting past brewers to the newCity Tap House at Logan Circle, which just opened in the old brewpub space.
Among those on hand will include Chris La Pierre from Iron Hill Brwing; Tim Roberts, head brewer from Yards; and Eric Savage, former Dock Street brewer and present owner of Helix Motorsports.
These alums will be on hand to talk beer and share inside jokes from over the years. The event kicks off at 6 p.m. and will also include current Dock Streeters including Rosemarie Certo, Marilyn Candeloro, Sasha Certo-Ware and new head brewer Vince DesRosiers.
Look for Dock Street classics as well as new recipes, including Rye IPA, Man Full of Trouble Porter, Helles and Back, Belgian IPA, Brown Bomber Ale, and No Exit, Dock Street’s hoppiest beer yet. Dock Street will also have its latest product, Vicio Mezcal onhand.
