FAQ #1 – Does our brewing water come from the Neshaminy Creek? ANSWER: Yes, in a round about 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. We also sell no beer for on-premise consumption as we only have a production brewery license, not a brewpub license. As of December 22, 2011 we can now sell beer in any quantity we’d like for off-premise consumption. Currently, we’re only selling growler fills, but will be selling individual bottles, six packs, and cases once our bottling line is in place and running later this summer.
FAQ #3 – What are our gift shop/tasting room hours? Do you do tours? ANSWER: Our gift shop and tasting room hours are currently as follows: Wednesday and Thursdays from 4 pm to 7 pm, Fridays and Saturdays from 12 pm to 7 pm, and Sundays from 12 pm to 5 pm. We are open for self-guided tours also during the same hours. If you would like a guided tour for a group of 6 or more please call ahead. We’d be happy to show your group around.
FAQ #4 – Are we hiring? ANSWER: At the current moment, we are not hiring. As we grow the necessity of bringing on addition 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.
