Dock Street Brewery is a pub and restaurant located in Philadelphia and has become a local favorite for its quality beer options, but almost equally importantly its delicious pizza. The brewery was founded in 1985 and was the first microbrewery in Philadelphia and became one of the leading breweries in the country. Several award winning beers have been produced at Dock Street Brewery including the Dock Street Amber beer, Bohemian Pilsner and more. There are few breweries in the area that take as much pride in their beer as they do with their food, and for hungry patrons there are several choices available including vegan and vegetarian pizzas and several ingredient options for pizzas, calzones, breakfast pizzas and frittatas, and more. There are also some of the most unique and unusual pizzas that you can find anywhere at Dock Street including the Fig Jam Pizza and the Bacon and Onion Flammenkuche.
Only King Arthur's flour is good enough for the bread bakers at Philadelphia's own Earth Bread & Brewery. Not only is the bread undeniably amazing, but so are the creative toppings. Imagine a flatbread topped with roasted garlic, pine nuts, pumpkin and sesame seeds, mozzarella, and red pepper flakes. Yum. The mozzarella is also freshly prepared daily in the Earth Bread & Brewery kitchen. Along with their breads, Earth Bread & Brewery serves impressive salads, a cheese plate, hummus sampler, dip of the day, and housemade sweets. Round out the meal with an extensive list of wine and sipping spirits.
Since locally crafted microbrews with delicate, complex flavors take years to perfect, and because you're not likely to possess the license required to run a brewery, it's more economical and rewarding to let someone else do it for you.
