At Fishtown Brewpub, we firmly believe that we need to look no further than our own neighborhood and the great city that surrounds us for inspiration. Fishtown itself is a blend of the old and new, with a great deference for history but also a thriving spirit of innovation, and we feel much the same about our brewing style.
We embrace brewing classic German and English styles using traditional ingredients, believing not only that these beers tend to be exquisitely drinkable, but also that they serve as able companions to our delicious rotating food menu. On the other end of the spectrum, we are also whole-hearted supporters of the constant flux and evolution of modern beer styles, experimenting with a range of IPA’s whose ingredients span the globe and using new techniques that would make the brewmasters of yester-year shudder.
All in all, our philosophy when it comes to beer is a simple and inclusive one. We believe our beer should be delicious, accessible to everyone, and served one floor above where it’s lovingly made.
Don't be fooled by the light color; this big beer may come across as sweet and friendly up front, but the 8.3% ABV will leave you breathing fire in no time flat. Brewed with over 600 pounds of malt and oats (our biggest malt bill to date)...
Marathon Session Ale
Drinking can be a lot like running a marathon: if you want to go the distance, it’s a good idea to pace yourself. This beer was envisioned for that exact purpose! Brewed with pilsner malt and a heaping helping of flaked rye...
Peach Passion Brosé
What happens when you take a brew already bursting with phenolic complexity and add even more fruit to it!? Peach Passion Brosé, that’s what! This one-off keg uses our dear Brosé as a base, and we’ve infused it with peach and passionfruit
The unruly middle child in our set of Belgian beers, this brew pours a delightful deep amber and features strong notes of caramel and raisins, with a slightly dry edge and just the right hint of Belgian funk.
Double Dry Hopped Drogon's DIPA
What happens when you double dry hop a double IPA!? You're about to find out! But seriously, we used our already hopped up Double IPA as a canvas to express one of our favorite hop combos, Citra and Amarillo, Nelson Sauvin and Rakau
Caution: Definitely contains caffieine!!! A delightfully sweet golden ale brewed with heaping helpings of wheat, oat, and lactose, then dosed during secondary fermentation with vanilla and over 5 gallons of cold brew coffee.
We love our classic German Wheat beers around here, but we also think they make an ideal beer to play with fruit infusion. Enter the apple version of this refreshing brew, infused with green apple and just a touch of Woodruff...
This single hop pale ale was brewed as a tribute to the glory of the Nelson Sauvin Hop, and it packs the full range of tropical hop goodness that Nelson is so famous for. Juicy, light, and refreshing...
We here at the Brewpub are big fans of Rosé in the warmer months, so we got to thinking: why should wine have all the fun!? Anything wine can do, beer can do better! So, we brewed a classic Saison with Pilsner and Munich Malt...
Our house Pale Ale, brewed with a hearty dose of wheat and heavy late kettle additions of Simcoe and Citra, a combination that replicates and blends bright citrus and subtle pine notes.
Night on the Sun
Starting with our Belgian Single 'Modest Monk' as a base beer, we filled a barrel that had been filled previously with both Pennsylvania Whiskey and New Jersey Rum, 25 lbs of pureéd PA peaches, and topped it off with a fresh dose of Belgian Lambic..
A classic Bavarian Wheat beer hopped with Halltertau & Strisselspalt hops, it’s offered as an homage to the proud tradition of German brewing Philadelphia was once famous for. Sweet, phenolic, and easy drinking - perfectly suited for sipping outside
How We Brew
Thoughtfully and with willful intent! We will make our wonderful beers in small batches, 200 gallons at a time, to ensure that absolute freshness is always maintained. Delivering sensory excitement is our guiding principle. We will focus on New-American Hoppy Ales, expressively fragrant and refreshing Franco-Belgian ales, classic malt-forward English and American varieties, and the unmatched subtlety and drinkability of the German brewing tradition.
Crowlers are 32oz cans that are filled right in the brewpub but capped with a special sealing machine behind the bar. These oversized cans are the perfect takeout beer option.
Why use a Crowler instead of the traditional Growler?
Think of a crowler as a no hassle growler - no cleaning, no forgetting to bring it with you, and no pile of used growlers crowding your kitchen cabinets.
Crowlers also keep beer fresher for a longer period of time compared to growlers. While growlers typically keep beer fresh and carbonated for 1-2 days, crowlers will keep your beer fresh 1-2 weeks.
How should the CROWLER® be stored if not consumed immediately?
Keep it refrigerated, just like a normal can of beer.
