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.
The Fordham & Old Dominion story started in 1989 when Jerry Bailey followed his passion for experimental brews by opening Old Dominion, which quickly gathered a loyal local following. In 1995, Bill Muehlhauser opened Fordham, and the two breweries joined forces 12 years later. Today, the company—led by Muehlhauser—remains dedicated to artfully crafted ales, lagers, and sodas with unique flavor profiles. These brews include the Double D IPA with guava and mango aromas as well as the Baltic porter, which combines the flavors of licorice and toffee with a touch of rye.
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.
