Free Will Brewing Company:
Say “Hello” to Free Will Brewing Company from Perkasie, PA (also with a home in Peddler’s Village)!
At Hot Rods and Hops 2018, they will be pouring:
2017 Ralphius – Russian-style Imperial Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels – 16.7% ABV
A rich full-bodied stout with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, caramel, and jammy dark fruit. This bourbon barrel aged blended behemoth has a complementary smooth finish with a lush velvety texture. Aged 1 year.
On Friday, November 23rd, they will “Unleash the Beasts”, in their annual Black Friday tradition of debuting the newest blend of this gnarly brew. New for 2018—look for some extra special variants of theiBarrel-Ageded Beasts (both Ralphius and Ella). Details coming sooooooon!
Manayunk Brewing Company:
Manayunk Brewery is one of the oldest breweries currently in Philadelphia. During the month of October, they will be celebrating 22 years of beers! Their first batch of Manayunk Brewing Company beer was tapped on October 17, 1996. Since then, they have brewed more than 600 different varieties of beers, and have been selling these sought-after styles all around Philadelphia and New Jersey. Their brewers continue to explore new takes on classic styles, especially when it comes to sour ales and India Pale Ales.
Manayunk’s location on the river affords them one of the largest outdoor decks in Philadelphia, which makes for wonderfully relaxing drinks and meals when the sun is shining. However, that great outdoor deck is not without its struggles. Their restaurant and brewery have survived a handful of devastating floods, where the river has risen more than 30 feet above normal level. Over twenty years, MBC has learned that it takes resilient and determined people to operate a business along such a powerful river, and we like to think that same grit and dedication is what makes their beer so delicious.
