Social Series presents the Manayunk Brewery

By Erik Petersons on December 5, 2011

As the weather turns cold, we’re bringing in a local favorite for our Social Series to keep you warm.  On Sunday, December 11th PCMS will host the Manayunk Brewery during the Schumann Trio’s concert at the American Philosophical Society’s Benjamin Franklin Hall.  This young brewery (first batch was tapped in 1996) already has a faithful following in Philadelphia and prides itself in brewing small batch, hand-crafted ales and lagers with quality ingredients.  Come early to try one of the following — straight from the keg:

Manayunk’s famous Krooks Mill Pale Ale is a well-balanced hoppy American style pale ale with a generous usage of fine 2 row pale and a touch of crystal malt.  This beer is copper in color and is finished with “C” hops from the Pacific Northwest, which provide a wonderful floral aroma.

Every year Manayunk brews a single batch of Festivus Holiday Ale using an original recipe.  The rich plum and raisin flavor in this batch is certainly a feat of strength while the complex spice profile and dark specialty malts shouldn’t be included in anyone’s airing of grievances.

We hope you come on Sunday and enjoy the Beer at 2 PM, then Brahms and Beethoven at 3.
