A brewery liquor license is pending for 33 East Laurel Street in Philadelphia. The name on the permit is Goose Island Brewpub. The location is adjacent to the recently opened Punchline comedy club that is part of the Fillmore complex. Goose Island is wholly owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev and is known for its line of 312 beers and more interesting Belgian-style ales.

The brewpub joins Punchline, the Fillmore theater, as well as Travinia Italian Kitchen and Wine Bar in the complex. Revolutions, a bowling alley and the new Philadelphia Distilling distillery are also under construction at the complex just off Delaware Avenue and Frankford Avenue.

The Goose Island Brewpub will be just a good stone’s throw away from the current Yards Brewery and even closer to the planned Neshaminy Creek tasting room coming to Frankford Avenue next to the Barbary and another brewpub planned for Frankford and Wildey. And that’s not even mentioning Urban Village Brewing which is on its way to Schmidt’s Commons (formerly the Piazza).
