Our Beers

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.


4.1 ABV

A light bodied but slightly toasty European mild brewed to honor Pier 53, Philly's own version of Ellis Island

Broad Street Black Lager

5.3 ABV

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.


5.8 ABV

Brewed with a psychosis-inducing amount of rye and local buckwheat from Deer Creek malting company. Fermented with our house mixed Saison culture and conditioned at cellar

Liz Lemon

6.4 ABV

An aromatic IPA brewed with the zest of 100 lemons, lemongrass, and dry hopped exclusively with Lemondrop Hops. Citrus character is present but not overwhelming, blending with full hop character and low bitterness that finishes crisp and refreshing


6.5 ABV

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.


5.5 ABV

A classic Bavarian Wheat beer hopped with Halltertau and Strisselspalt hops, and brewed with our great friends at the Pennsylvania SPCA. Sweet, phenolic, and easy drinking, this beer is perfectly suited for bringing a crowler to the dog park!

Cool Beans

5.5 ABV

A delightfully sweet golden ale brewed with wheat, oat, and lactose, then dosed during fermentation with vanilla and over 5 gallons of cold brew coffee. Layers of sweet complexity give way to refreshing espresso notes - like iced coffee!

Morse Service Session IPA

4.9 ABV

Long before we put a brewery in the basement of this building, it housed the Morse Elevator Co., one of the leading elevator service and manufacturing companies of its time. The basement of this building, it housed the Morse Elevator Co.,...

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 Crowlers?

  • 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.
