Bucks County Brewery Tours
Free Will Brewing Co.:Emerging as a leader in the sour-beer trend, Free Will has vastly expanded its downtown Perkasie space to devote an entire floor to making sours. That doesn’t mean the other intensely flavorful beers — think mango habanero IPA — are going anywhere, to the delight of Free Will fans.
Proper Brewing Company: Quakertown’s neighborhood taproom emphasizes all that is fresh and local, beginning with its 12 taps of beer (chocolate milk stout, dark IPA, blonde ale), brewed on the premises. Set in the historic Palace Theatre Building, Proper also serves PA-centric cocktails, wine and burgers.
The Other Farm Brewing Company: A self-described “sleepy little café” located in the former Boyertown Brewery has transformed itself into a nano-brewery that welcomes collaborations and experimentation. Brewers rely on local produce for some of their beers, including the rare Saisonner style, which can be sampled with a seasonal choice of infused apricot, blackberry, cherry, blueberry, peach or raspberry. Depending on the time of day, visitors can eat breakfast, sample local ciders, meads and wines or enjoy time in the beer garden. Note: The beer garden experience includes the opportunity to chow down on BBQ and either listen to live bluegrass and honky tonk or rise up for an electric dance party.
Bucks County Brewery: Owner Andrew Knechel takes advantage of his proximity to his next-door neighbor, distillery Hewn Spirits, to simultaneously brew and distill products using shared ingredients. The devoted conservationist brings food trucks and music to the 2,500-square-foot brewery every Friday night.
Doylestown Brewing Company: The son of a saloon owner and grandson of a man who opened a beer distributor in 1948, Joe Modestine makes seasonal brews in a full-service brewpub that opened in 2015 in downtown Doylestown. The Bucks County spot also serves up daily specials and deals like Rib Night on Tuesdays and half-priced burgers on Wednesdays.
McCoole’s Red Lion Brewery: Using a single-barrel system to fine tune recipes and experiment on a small scale, Quakertown’s Red Lion Brewery tapped its first keg in November 2013. Find Red Lion beers always on tap at McCoole’s at the Historic Red Lion Inn, the brewery’s namesake restaurant.
Mad Princes Brewery: Taking the extravagances of King Ludwig II as inspiration, two brothers named Ludwig concoct an eclectic selection of small-batch potables that ranges from Solebury Sweet Wheat (American style honey wheat beer) to Fassloch Kaltesbrau (bourbon barrel coffee stout) to Dead Squirrel (Belgian strong ale). The onsite tasting room, open on weekends, has a German beer hall vibe, and a friendly, personal approach.
Triumph Brewing Company: The eastern Pennsylvania location of the mini-brewpub chain pours mostly standard Belgian, German and English styles (including ciders) from five taps and a hand pump. The rustically modern space houses live bands on weekends and open-mic nights on Sundays.
Tower Hill Brewery: Culinary Institute graduate and landmark local deli owner Stan Kreft sources from local farms for his seasonal restaurant food menu, and he brews classic styles to match. The hoppy Powder & Rock IPA, the Robert Hare’s Porter black beer and the spicy Tatra Mountain Smoked Ale are just a few of Tower Hill’s top varieties.
Vault Brewing Company: Housed in a circa-1889 bank, Vault’s allure comes as much from its quirky, speakeasy-esque design — including the original 125-year-old, 8,000-pound vault door that opens into the beer-conditioning cellar — as its beer. The brewery and wood-fired oven are visible from the dining room, and live jazz and funk accompany the unfiltered American, British and Belgian beers every Friday and Saturday night.
Broken Goblet Brewing: It’s true that Broken Goblet Brewery produces some unusual beers (think tea-infused beers and a high-gravity saison), but what may be more notable is the fact that the office-park brewery comes equipped with a soundstage and professional audio/video capabilities. That means trivia nights, karaoke, comedians, live music and movies, along with seven beers on tap and some noteworthy hot-dog concoctions, such as the Uncle Paul Dog, with peanut butter, jelly, marshmallow fluff and bacon.
Neshaminy Creek Brewing Co.: A former River Horse Brewing Company brewer and Seibel Institute graduate, Jeremy Myers, along with friends Steven Capelli and Rob Jahn, opened Bucks County’s first brewery, tasting room and gift shop in 2012. Myers won the Philly Beer Scene Awards’ “Brewer of the Year” in 2014, and then took it home again, along with “Brewery of the Year,” in 2015.
Naked Brewing Company: Up and running in its present location since 2012, the nano-brewery that was started by two homebrewing friends churns out ales like Pomegranate Wheat, Carpe Noctem Black IPA and The Gentleman Imperial Stout. Several dozen bars in the Philadelphia area sell its rare black currant and ginger spice wheat beers, not to mention a variety of sours and one-offs.
Philadelphia County Brewery Tours
Yards Brewing Company: Owner Tom Kehoe helped ignite a craft beer revolution in Philadelphia, and as his 2014 designation as Philly Beer Scene magazine’s “Humanitarian of the Year” proves, he remains notably committed to sustainability and community. Visitors to Yards’ wind-powered tasting room can sample its mostly English-inspired ales while shooting pool or nibbling light fare from the kitchen or the food trucks on Saturdays and Sundays.
Philadelphia Brewing Company: Operating in a facility that was originally constructed as the Weisbrod & Hess Brewing Company. Among its styles are the flagship Kenzinger, a crisp and hoppy pilsner that pays homage to the German heritage of the original brewers, Pennsylvania Pale Ale, for those who seek a more full-bodied and hoppier experience and Walt Wit, an unfiltered Belgian white ale. Keep an eye out for limited run and seasonal brews like the Rowhouse Red or Joe Coffee Porter plus three ciders — raspberry, ginger and traditional dry.
Dock Street Brewery: Alongside traditional unfiltered ales and lagers are alternative and experimental styles, such as Bubbly Wit and Spanglish Fly (brewed with wormwood and yarrow), and special releases like Walker, a beer brewed with smoked goat brains to honor the TV show Walking Dead. Located in an old firehouse, the brewpub features wood-fired pizzas, Pennsylvania wines, beer cocktails and a calendar of on-site events. Head just around the corner from the brewpub to visit the Dock Street Cannery, an additional bar and airy hangout.
Urban Village Brewing Company: Taking over a space in the Northern Liberties complex Schmidt’s Commons, Urban Village is the handiwork of Dave Goldman and Tom Revelli, who have combined their comparable passions for brewing and baking to develop this beer and pizza lover’s paradise. Goldman’s early-going stylings include a Rye IPA, a Citra Pale Ale and Beets by J, a Berliner Weiss brewed with more than 300 pounds of beets. Revelli, meanwhile, is a fellow fermentation fiend whose interests gravitate toward naturally leavened dough. Pizzas here are a big food draw, which are joined by small plates and sandwiches.
Evil Genius Beer Company: The two Villanova grads who created Evil Genius pride themselves on innovative styles and funky names like: Purple Monkey Dishwasher Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter, I Love Lamp Pineapple Hefeweizen, Turtle Power Grapefruit Pale Ale and Trick or Treat Chocolate Pumpkin Porter. A 6,000-square-foot Evil Genius brewery and brewpub opened in Fishtown in March 2017.
2nd Story Brewing: At this two-story craft brewery and restaurant in Philadelphia’s Historic District, head brewer Jason Ranck presents classic ales and lagers, while executive chef Tyson Jordan serves American bar fare, including many vegetarian options.
Crime and Punishment Brewing Company: Inspired by the words of great thinkers — such as the author of the brewery’s namesake, Fyodor Dostoyevsky — Crime and Punishment toys with a Russian theme in its décor and more. As the first 21st-century brewery to return to the neighborhood known as Brewerytown, the brewpub showcases Russian-inspired fare, like a kielbasa sandwich, a beet reuben and pirogis, in addition to eight rotating beers on tap, ranging in style from a New Zealand-influenced pale ale to an inky oatmeal stout.
Saint Benjamin Brewing Company: Named for Ben Franklin, Saint Benjamin brews on a three-barrel system in the carriage house and stable of the former Theo Finkenauer Brewery, built in the Kensington neighborhood around 1880. Opened in June of 2014, brewer Tim Patton interprets classic styles and design new creations such as the Inca, an India-style cream ale and Junto, a coffee Kolsch-style ale.
Bar Hygge: Earth Bread + Brewery’s Tom Baker and Peggy Zwerver teamed up with Stew and Julie Keener of Baggataway Tavern in West Conshohocken to create a brewpub in Philadelphia’s Fairmount neighborhood. “Hygge,” a Danish concept, represents the idea of making the every day more meaningful, beautiful or special. For the crew at Bar Hygge, that means enabling guests to turn a weeknight or weekend dinner into a cozy, neighborhood experience of contemporary American food paired with the choice of seven house-made brews.
Brewery ARS: Run by two beer-loving brothers, this garage brewery in South Philly is open on Thursday through Sunday. From IPAs to saisons to porters, Brewery ARS is always brewing up something new.
Second District Brewing Company: Just a few blocks away from Brewery ARS is Second District Brewing Company, a craft beer spot from a team with years of beer-biz experience at some of the area’s most popular breweries (Dogfish Head, Dock Street). The brewery serves up more than a half-dozen draft beers and a menu of tasty bar food.
Roy-Pitz Barrel House: Purveyor of “Liquid Art,” the Chambersburg-headquartered Roy-Pitz Brewing Company brings its product to Philly via this Spring Garden emporium. The colorful industrial space sets the stage for barrel-aged ales like Sour Hound and Old Jail brown, plus inspired bar food like carrot hummus and mojo pork panini.
Manayunk Brewing Company: This canal-side destination constantly updates its beer selections, which pour from 10 taps, including a hand pump. Patrons wash down stone oven-fired pizzas and sushi with a selection of brews that might range from fruity mainstay Schuylkill Funk Ale, a sour blonde ale brewed with cherries and cranberries, to Yunkin’ Punkin’, a fall favorite made with 100% real pumpkin and fall spices.
Earth Bread + Brewery: From utilizing reclaimed furniture to composting, the husband-and-wife owners — who once owned New Jersey’s renowned Heavyweight Brewing Co. — are as committed to reducing their footprint as they are to creating wood-fired flatbreads and pouring a niche selection of beers and wines on draft. Regulars know not to get attached to any particular beer style, as brewer Tom Baker almost never repeats a recipe.
Wissahickon Brewing Company: A Father’s Day gift of a homebrew kit led to years of experimentation, and finally this family-owned microbrewery in East Falls. Open Wednesday through Sunday, the tasting room offers house specialties like Devils Pool Imperial IPA and Czech, Please! Bohemian Pilsner.
Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant: Located on Germantown Avenue, Chestnut Hill’s main thoroughfare, this popular Iron Hill location in northwest Philadelphia joins Campbell’s Place and McNally’s in the town’s stacked beer scene.

Rotating beers range from smoked sour saisons to blueberry imperial stouts. Guests enjoy it all throughout Tired Hands’ two floors.
Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant – Ardmore: Tired Hands got a nearby competitor when local chain Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant moved in to a 280-seat space just down the road, bringing with it its lengthy beer list and tasty fare.

Expect a capacity of 260 people (180 in the dining room alone), three beer towers each with 12 taps and a menu that includes unusual takes on tacos, churros and more.
Neshaminy Creek Brewing’s Borough Brewhouse: Neshaminy Creek Brewing and its head brewer and co-owner Jeremy Myers have racked up numerous local awards since opening in 2012, which may help explain why the brewery has continued to expand over the year. Its newest project, Borough Brewhouse, is a massive taproom in Jenkintown pouring NCBC beers along with grub from the team behind Revolution Taco.
Conshohocken Brewing Company: “Conshie” is led by a brewing and ownership team with a notable pedigree. Both owners have received certifications from the Beer Judging Certification Program.
