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.
Broad Street Black Lager
This lager accomplishes the rare feat of being both roasty and refreshing simultaneously. Hopped with traditional Hallertau Mittelfruh Hops and fermented with our house lager yeast, this beer has been slowly "lagering" for the last eight weeks.
Tart, sour, fermented with copious amounts of organic peach puree from Oregon, kettle soured over the course of three days this beer brings a new wave of flavor to your mouth
Brewed deep beneath the Earth's crust (aka in the basement ten feet below the bar), this is our take on a classic American IPA. Brewed with Citra and Amarillo hops. Malt forward with caramel notes and a finish of resin and pin.
The first of our single hop series of beers, this is a mild strength IPA brewed to showcase the glory of the Nelson Sauvin hop. Aromas of white grape must dominate, with light citrus and grapefruit in the finish.
A full bodied oatmeal stout that carefully balances its roasty and sweet natures, brewed with copious amounts of both Flakes and Malted Hops.
It's a Trappe!
Brewed in honor of the classic Trappist Beers of Belgium, this beer presents strong notes of cherry and brown sugar with hints of chocolate in the finish. Sweet and noticeable warming with a complex fruity nose.
Started out as a Golden Belgian, conditioned with 120 lbs. of tart cherry puree, sweet with tart fruit finish
Extra Saison - Fermented with meyer lemons, dandelion greens, aromas of fresh cut grass, lemon/pine, and orchard fruit.
Double IPA - Brewed with Motueka, Nelson Sauvin, Pacifica, and Rakau hops, and then double dry hopped again with all four; strong notes of citrus, grapefruit, pine in the finish
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.
