The greater Philadelphia area continues to attract up-and-coming craft brewers, with the latest beer operation to sink its roots into suburban soil being Conshohocken Brewing Company.
Expect this emerging Conshohocken beer company, situated on East Elm Street along the Schuylkill River Bike Trail, to make its official debut early spring 2014. Backed by beer enthusiasts and co-founders John Remington and Ken Buonocore, the brewing company will operate out of a 15-barrel, steam-fired system and will feature an on-site taproom for guests to enjoy pints of the flagship’s seasonal ales and limited small-batch pilot beers.
At the helm of the craft brewing operation is Great American Beer Festival-award winner, brewer Andrew Horne, who arrives most recently from Portland, Oregon’s Breakside Brewery. Horne, a Villanova University grad, previously completed stints locally at Yards Brewing Co., and nationally at Avery and Oskar Blues. With practiced experience in West Coast styles and knowledge of the local Philly market, the brewer’s hoping to “create beers that will push the envelope, and draw on the Philadelphia area’s rich brewing tradition.”
Expect to see Conshohocken Brewing Co. releases on tap at local bars and restaurants, as the gents are quickly developing a distribution network in Southeastern Pennsylvania. More information on beer styles, including year-round and seasonal offerings, and the official opening date will be available soon.
