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.
A double IPA brewed with an abrasive amount of Southern Hemisphere hops, this beer has a deceptively high abv for something that pours a perfect pale yellow. Rakau, Motueka, and Nelson Sauvin hops...
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...
A brew as raucous and lively as the city its named after, this beer was made exclusively with PA grown malt and hopped excessively with Simcoe, Citra, and Motueka.
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.
Nutella Cool Beans
The same coffee-golden ale you know and love, this time infused with our favorite chocolatey indulgence: Nutella! The latte-like flavor of the original beer is still present, but is bolstered delightfully with notes of hazelnut and chocolate.
We took our Southern Hemisphere Double IPA and infused it with the crisp majesty of citrus! Blood Orange and Pineapple combine in melodic harmony, playing alongside a strong hopping of Motueka, Rakau, and Nelson Sauvin...
A traditional English Ale brewed with classic English ingredients, including heaps of UK Fuggle Hops and Maris Otter Malt. Rich and nutty undertones give way to a delightful toffee like finish with just a touch of hop bitterness
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.
