Dock Street Celebrates a Decade in West Philly With Beer (Obviously) and $25 Tattoos (Really)

They're partying with a can release and lots of ink on August 31st.

Dock Street Brewery is one of the city’s oldest existing craft brewers — they’ve been at it since 1985. And 2017 marks 10 years in the West Philly firehouse space that’s home to their pizzeria, brewery, canning line, and tasting room.

Naturally, they’re throwing a party to celebrate — and they’re providing a memento that will last quite a bit longer than the buzz from your beer.

Starting at 3 p.m. this Thursday, Dock Street will offer their West of Center Pale Ale in cans for the first time.

And at 6 p.m., they’ll mark another first, with tattoo artist Dylan Curry of West Chester’s X-Treme Ink Tattoo turning out anchor tats — the brewery’s sigil — plus a few other basic designs for $20-$25 each. (And yes, this tattoo artist and pop-up is licensed and legal.)

The drinks flow August 31st at 3 p.m. at the main brewpub at 701 South 50th Street; the ink starts at 6 p.m. around the corner at the Dock Street Cannery and Lounge at 705 South 50th Street.
