New bar opens in Philadelphia Brewing
Jul. 2017 • Friends
The brewery has finally opened a great bar in the brewery that is open 7 days a week, small comfortable place, nice garden, friendly people, the beers are excellent . The new manager Joe is a great guy. Nice place to relax away from the Fishtown , Kensington tourist scene ( no TV people actually talk to one another)

free tours - just make sure you go on a saturday between 12 and 3
Apr. 2017 • Couples
I've been to my fair share of breweries and this is probably the best one I've been on. What's to love about it?

1. Tours are free - you just have to make sure you show up on Saturday between 12 and 3, since that's the only time that tours run. There are no tickets, so it is first come, first serve. Our 1:30 ish tour (which lasted about 45 minutes) had about 30 people on it. Our guide (wish I remembered his name) was also very friendly and you could tell he was trying to make it an interactive tour, rather than a spewing facts tour. Plus, this was the first time I got to see beer-bottling in action. For most brewery tours I've been to, I've gone on a weekend, and they typically don't bottle on the weekends. So I'm glad that I finally got the opportunity to see that.

2. Beer tastings are 5 3 oz. samples for $10. They give you a sheet (almost like a punch card) and they'll mark down which ones you've tasted so far.

3. The beers are really great. Whenever I do beer tastings, there's only maybe one or two that I like. But here, I liked pretty much all of them. My favorite was the Fleur de Lehigh (which is a seasonal Spring beer). The Joe Coffee Porter was excellent. I usually don't like coffee porters because they just tend to have a bitter taste, and not much flavor. But this one had a great, fresh coffee flavor.

Tip - be sure to check out their store. If the season is over, you can get some SUPER cheap beer. When I went in April, their Winter Wunder was just $5 for a 12-pack. Probably the only time I wished I lived in Philly so that I can bring a bunch of beer back home.

Informative, Cozy, and Thirst-quenching!
Oct. 2016 • Friends
I stopped into PBC on a rainy, windy Saturday with a visiting friend for a brewery tour and tasting. Our tour guide, William, was highly engaging and informative! Not only did the tour give a clear rundown of the brewing process, but also of the history of beer in Philadelphia which was a neat addition. The beers we tasted were for the most part delicious, particularly the Pennsylvania Pale Ale. The tasting room was warm and cozy. We stayed for hours sipping and chatting. The only thing lacking were a few more chairs and tables for the amount of people gathered!

Bad Attitude in the Salesroom
Aug. 2016 • Friends
Dropped by on a Saturday with a party of 4. We decided to show my brother in law a good time by brewery hopping and getting a cheese steak. We arrived a minute or 2 before 11 and visited Row House Spirits first (in the parking lot of Philadelphia Brewing Company) and that was great. Owner there is super friendly. When we went to do the brewery, the woman in the sales room told us that they were open for sales but the tastings and tours didn't start until 12. So we left, and went to Saint Benjamin which is nearby (by car) and is also great. We made a couple of other stops including getting the cheese steak and arrived back at 3:30 to finish up our tour. This time, the lady in the sales room (same one as at 11) was pretty condescending and had a very sarcastic attitude about telling us that the sales room was open until 5 but the tasting room had closed at 3. She recommended a dive bar on the corner and then proceeded to tell some other people she was chatting with that she just "loved" her job. We don't recall being told about the abbreviated schedule for the tasting room, but she claims she told us. Whatever - I'm not going to argue about whether or not she mentioned it. I'm annoyed by her attitude and unprofessional demeanor. I'm hoping that Philadelphia Brewing Company reads this review and 1 - considers revising their Saturday abbreviated schedule and 2 - considers a class in good customer service practices for their sales staff.

Tastings are hit or miss...
Jun. 2016 • Couples
The Philadelphia Brewing Co. venue is cool, but hitting their tour/ tasting is crazy. 12-3PM Saturday and Sunday are the only times you can go in to sample their beers. That seems really unusual. What’s even more unusual is the cashier refers people to the dumpy bar down the street to “taste their beers and come back if you want to buy any.” The bar they refer you to is a poor reflection on this brewing company.

A great stop if doing brewery tours/tastings
May 2016 • Couples
Had a really nice time here. Showed up promptly at noon for a free tour, which was fun and informative. It took about 20 min. The tasting was $10 for 5 generously sized tasting glasses (and the glass is yours to keep). Hubby enjoyed all of the beers; I liked the ciders (less sugar than normal and on the dry side). The Dr. Physick's Black Cherry soda is crack in a bottle. OMG- so good! The building is steeped in history and retains much of its original character. Bathrooms were immaculately clean. A large (and free) parking lot is across the street. In that lot is also a separately owned distillery, for those that can handle mixing their alcohol types...which is not me. The retail shop houses clothing, glassware and mix and match beer options (6 pk, 12 pk or case) at pretty reasonable prices.

Good tour, free beer
Aug. 2015 • Couples
Went here for a tour and tasting on Saturday afternoon. We arrived and got placed on a tour right away, which was nice. Our guide was friendly and looked like Seth Rogen (I'm sure he gets that a lot). The tour lasted about 20 minutes and since the bottling operation was running we got to sample some brew right off the line. You get to sample 3 different beers and 2 ciders in their taproom. We weren't fans of the cider but most of the beer was solid. Definitely worth a visit.
