Last week we decided to take in a bit of Philadelphia, and managed to see five shows, check out two microbreweries, and even throw in some American cultural heritage sites!
The two microbreweries we managed to check out were Dock Street Brewing and Yards Brewing Company.
Incidentally, Yards Brewing is near the water, while Dock Street is in the very cool Cedar Park neighborhood. Yards definitely feels more like a tasting room, with a free standing bar surrounded by stools, and lots of schwag to be purchased lining the walls. They had some fantastic beers – Will enjoyed the Pynk – a sour beer brewed with cherries, that lacked the sweetness of, say, a kriek. I went ahead and tried out their Signature Flight – my favorite brew definitely being the Brawler – the closest thing to a real English bitter I have tasted in almost a year!
