Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ #1 – Does our brewing water come from the Neshaminy Creek? ANSWER: Yes, in a roundabout way, it does. We use water supplied to us from a municipal source, which like many of the surrounding suburban Philadelphia communities, is supplied in part or in whole by the Philadelphia Water Department. The PWD’s main water source is the Delaware River. The Neshaminy is a tributary of the Delaware, so by default, we do use Neshaminy Creek water as our water source, as do any of the eight breweries in Philadelphia county that source their water from the PWD. For those brewers out there that are interested, our water profile has 80 ppm Calcium, 70 ppm Magnesium, 20 ppm Sulfate, and an effective alkalinity of 40 ppm when measuring CaC03 with a pH of 8.4 from the tap. We filter all our brewing water down to 50 microns to remove any Chlorine and other treatments done by the water authority.
FAQ #2 – Do we sell food or are we a brewpub? ANSWER: No, we, unfortunately, do not sell food. For that very reason, we bring in food trucks on a weekly basis. Friday from 4-9PM and Saturday from 3-8PM you can be fed by some of the greatest trucks the tri-state area has to offer. We do sell drafts and flights of our beers, as well as take-out bottles and cans here in Croydon. As of August 2017, we will be lowering the amount of growler fills that we do, and instead will be switching to a CROWLER system.
FAQ #3 – What are our gift shop/tasting room hours? Do you do tours? ANSWER: Our gift shop and tasting room hours are Wed/Thurs 4-9PM, Fri/Sat 12-11PM, Sun 12-9PM. We have brewery tours available on Saturday afternoon at 2, 3 and 4PM.
FAQ #4 – Are we hiring? ANSWER: At the current moment, we are not hiring. As we grow the necessity of bringing on additional help for several areas of the brewery and business will exist, and we’re not only here to make delicious beer, but to help provide jobs to those in our community that want to work for a company that is passionate about what they do. We will also be bringing on brewing interns in the coming months as well, but please keep in mind at the current moment our brewing schedule isn’t something that would necessitate or even be beneficial for brewing interns. Simply put, we’re just not brewing enough right now to make it worthwhile for both the brewery and an intern. As soon as we are hiring and looking for brewing interns we’ll post those announcements on our website and Facebook page.
FAQ #5 – Are you dog and/or family-friendly? YES! Unless noted for a special event, we allow pups in the Taproom, as well as children, as long as they are accompanied by their parent/guardian.
