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.
Brewed deep beneath the Earth's crust (aka in the basement ten feet below you), this is our take on a classic American IPA. Brewed with Citra and Amarillo hops. Malt forward caramel notes with a finish of resin and pine.
Will's Winter Wheat
We looked to our states founder, Williiam Penn, for inspiration on this refreshing brew, and thanks to our friends at Double Eagle Malt we are able to use 100% Pennsylvania grown and malted grain, giving this beer a uniquely local character.
Brass Monkey (Malt Liquor)
This high gravity brew was created in honor of the classic beer cocktail made famous by the Beastie Boys, where orange juice and malt liquor are combined to form an amped up (and cheaper) take on a Mimosa...
Are you tired of everything pumpkin related tasting like a sugary sweet latté or slice of pie? We definitely are, which is why this beer is firmly a stout first and pumpkin second. Dark and wholly satisfying..
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.
Soft, malty, and slightly sweet, this drinkable brew was made with heavy doses of Munich malt for color and character and hopped exclusively with traditional Hallertau Mittelfruh hops.
Peachy Pale Ale
A positively Peachy Pale Ale perfectly balanced between sweet succulent peach character and a piney American hop backbone. Crisp and delightfully refreshing, this brew is a ray of summer sunshine to ward off the winter blues!
Our eminently drinkable Hefeweizen infused with lemon and local lovage. Delightful blend of citrus and herb.
A crisp and classic American Pale Ale brewed with heavy doses of Amarillo hops both in the kettle and as a dry hop, with notes of pine, sharp citrus, and a light malty 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.
