Everything is falling into place for Point Breeze Brewing Company.
Last month they announced a new location for the operation in Grays Ferry, now their fundraising goal on Kickstarter has been met and they are now licensed to begin brewing from the location.
As we told you previously, the money from the Kickstarter will go towards a fermentation expansion, the purchase of more kegs, a control panel upgrade for a new brewing system and more refrigeration. The original goal was to raise $5,000. Up to this point, they’ve raised over $6,000 to begin serving the community this small-batch craft beer.
While you won’t be able to visit a tasting room at the brewery now, it is in the brewery’s future plans. Until that becomes a reality, you’ll have the chance to start trying these Grays Ferry-made brews at some South Philly bars.
From Philly Voice:
The first official release will be the Point Breeze Pale Ale, a white wheat malt, on tap at select bars in October or November; following that will be a Madira IPA offered exclusively at Madira Bar & Grill at 1252 21st St. Soon after, a West Passyunk Porter, made in collaboration with West Passyunk Neighbors, will grace taste buds. More brews will follow in the winter months.
