YOUR SIX-YEAR ANNIVERSARY GUIDE
ALRIGHT– so you might know by now that our SIX-YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY is THIS SATURDAY, JUNE 9th! With an event this large, and with so many components, questions frequently pop-up about the details, and as a result, we have compiled THIS GUIDE for you! Below you will find information about every aspect of the ANNIVERSARY that we could think of. If you READ THIS ALL and still have questions, drop us a line on Social Media or email our Social Media Manager at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Anniversary Party kicks off this Saturday, June 9th at Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company, 909 Ray Ave. Croydon, PA 19021. General Admission begins at 1 PM, but VIP TICKET HOLDERS (see below) are granted early entry at 12 PM. EVERY ONE ATTENDING MUST SHOW I.D.! We will be giving out wristbands for those OVER and UNDER 21 years of age- so if you plan on having a beer, PLEASE bring your valid identification so that you don’t have to miss out. General admission to the event is FREE and ALL-AGES can attend. We are a dog-friendly brewery, so please feel free to bring your furry friend with you. We will have our three usual indoor bathrooms available, as well as a bunch of porta-potties at the front and back entrances for your use. Backpacks and bags are ALLOWED, but are subject to search. We do allow for re-entry.
For the first time this year, we will be offering a FREE parking solution at the KEYSTONE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. To access this lot, please enter on CHURCH STREET and you will be met by our Parking Management Staff that will be there to help you park your car. We must ask that you BEHAVE YOURSELF at the school. There will be NO “hanging out” permitted. After parking, you can hop on our FREE SHUTTLE that will drop you off on MILLER AVENUE, right around the corner from the Brewery. THE SHUTTLE WILL BE RUNNING DURING THE ENTIRETY OF THE EVENT. After being dropped off, you can then enter the brewery via Miller Ave or go around the corner to enter on RAY AVENUE, which is our front entrance. Besides this, there will also be some LIMITED street parking on CEDAR AVENUE and in our facility parking lot. PLEASE obey ALL TRAFFIC and PARKING SIGNS and staff’s orders about this- we don’t want anyone blocking our amazing neighbor’s driveways, or parking on the wrong side of the street, resulting in traffic tickets or towing. We know it can get congested on this day, so PLEASE consider utilizing PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION, LYFT or CARPOOLING. The Septa Trenton Regional Line, Croydon Stop can be used to get here. You will be let off by the train less than a mile away. From there, you will walk down Cedar Ave., make a left on Ray Ave., and you are here!
As mentioned above, you can enter the Anniversary festivities either via MILLER AVENUE (which will lead you into the Warehouse area, where vendors and the music stage is) or RAY AVENUE (where our main Taproom is). We will have I.D. Check stations on both streets, and from there, you can head to the beer ticket stations, vendors, or if it applies, to the VIP STATION, which is located in the Taproom, accessed most easily by the RAY AVE entrance. Again, GENERAL ADMISSION IS FREE and ALL-AGES, please have a valid I.D. if you plan on drinking.
If you purchased one of our VIP TICKETS (sale ends on Wednesday, June 6th, at 5PM– so GRAB YOURS HERE TODAY), you have access to the event at 12 PM, instead of general admission at 1 PM. This allows for you to come in, shop with the vendors, grab a few beers, and acquire all of your goodies before the general public is admitted an hour later. We will have a special VIP STATION set up in the MAIN TAP ROOM, most easily accessed by entering on RAY AVENUE. At this station, you will be given all of your materials, including your FOUR PACK of “BASTARD OF DISGUISE” ANNIVERSARY BEER! This four-pack is for OFF PREMISE CONSUMPTION ONLY. So please store it with your car, or hold onto it and enjoy at home. Draft of this delicious beer will be available at the brewery, so don’t worry. We have emailed with MOST VIP TICKET HOLDERS up to this point, BUT NOT EVERYONE. If you haven’t responded to our emails about your T-SHIRT SIZE (only for Silver-Shirt + Gold Tiers), PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK and/or GET IN TOUCH ASAP! Additional t-shirts, posters, and four-packs of “BASTARD OF DISGUISE” (limit 3 total per person, including your 1 that you get with your VIP Ticket) will be available for sale as well.
We will have I.D. checks, beer tickets, and beer pouring stations located at both the front entrance (Taproom / Ray Ave), as well as in the back (Warehouse / Miller Ave). Right now the plan is to have the bands perform on our OUTDOOR LOADING DOCK, which is on MILLER AVE, but this is subject to the cooperation of the weather. If it is raining on Saturday, we WON’T have you standing outside all day so that you are drenched just to hear the bands playing. We will adjust the format and bring them indoors.
As mentioned above, our Anniversary Beer, one we create and release especially for this event yearly, will be available in FOUR-PACKS for the FIRST TIME this year! “BASTARD OF DISGUISE” is the name of our brew this year, and it is an Orange Juice Bomb of a DIPA we are sure you will love. You can find out more about the making of it by READING A BLOG HERE. Only 150 cases of this beer will be available, with the first 4-packs being designated for VIP TICKET HOLDERS. The rest will be available at $18/four-pack, limit 3 per customer. It will also be available on draft, in crowlers when four-packs sell out, and in limited supply at the BOROUGH BREWHOUSE in JENKINTOWN. We will have regular beer pouring stations located at the Taproom bar, as well as a bar in the back warehouse area. Between these stations you will be able to get our core beers, the seasonals and limiteds we have available right now, as well as wine, cider, mead, and soda. We will also have our famous Rare Beer Station (list below) set up in the back warehouse, which will include some popular NCBC seasonals and Bourbon Barrel Aged selections that aren’t typically available in the Taproom this time of year. Water kegs will be placed around the brewery with signage and cups for you to enjoy. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE utilize the trash cans that will be set up around the brewery to dispose of any cups, plates, and other trash. Also, please notify any staff member if you see someone partaking in a beer that maybe shouldn’t be.

We will also have our regular draft list available, which you can access on our BeerMenus page!
Music will start on the outdoor loading dock off on MILLER AVE around 2 PM with local thrashers ACTIVATE. From there, we will head to the heaviness of MIND POWER, with NYHC mainstays BURN tearing up the stage after them. GALACTIC EMPIRE will then be putting on a show of Death Star exploding proportions, with everyone’s favorite slime-drenched party maniacs MUNICIPAL WASTE closing out the show. We won’t be releasing set times for the bands, but given the show ends at 7 PM and these are punk bands, try and do the math. We want everyone to enjoy themselves, but please be respectful of your fellow party-goers!
Food trucks will be parked out back by the MILLER AVE entrance, as well as out front by the RAY AVE entrance. Trucks this year include MARY’S MOBILE DINER, THE SLIDER KING, EL TLALOC, and DUMP N’ ROLL. We, unfortunately, do NOT have access to the menus for the trucks ahead of time, but they usually make sure to cover a variety of dietary needs in their menu prep. Please see each truck’s operator to ask about specifics.
As in years past, we try to make sure we have plenty for families to enjoy, so the young ones don’t feel too left out! This year we will have attractions including a bouncy castle, giant playground slides, ice cream, caricatures and face-painting available to enjoy, no matter your age. They will be predominately spread across the warehouse area and outside. We will have our usual lineup of awesome arcade and table games available to play in the Taproom as well!
One aspect of the Anniversary Party that we started last year and went over so well is to include some of our favorite VENDORS in the event. We hand-picked and curated the list of vendors that will offer up some truly unique art and mesmerizing merchandise you can bring home with you to remember your day with us! Our lineup this year includes: Spoon Little Spoon Naturals, Fuzzrocious Pedals, Artist Bruno Guerriero, Russo Music, Caricaturist Brian Mietz, Bort’s Pin Emporium, Stanley Chester & Albert Ceramics, Shaky Hands Crafts, Perry Shall Vintage Clothing, Grumpzilla, Axe and Anchor Beard Oil, Side Project Jerky, Noble Earth, UNCLE RON’S CANDLES, woodworker ERIC DOHERTY. Outer Limits Hot Sauce, Thirst Quencher Neckware, Candles by Kambouris, Absorbent Coasters and Stump Wood.
TO SUM UP:
We spend many hours trying to organize and then execute this awesome day that is FREE for you to attend every year in order to help us celebrate our milestones as a Brewery. We offer a ton to do and enjoy at this party, and only ask that you have fun, respect our facility, neighbors, and staff during the event. If you have any concerns or questions, we will have staff members (with a giant STAFF logo on the back of their shirts) scattered throughout the brewery during the day. We hope you enjoy this day just as much as we do. Make sure to use #NCBCBeer and #NCBCSix in your social media posts, and keep an eye on our social media accounts throughout the week for some more updates on the party!
Cheers to Six-Years of NCBC, and many more to come!
