Colts Neck-based Source Farmhouse Brewery is opening a new location next month and stepping into the “exciting Philly beer scene,” Greg Taylor, partner and Director of Brewing Operations, said.
The new location will be in the Fishtown area of Philadelphia, on Frankford Avenue, a street lined on either side by other artisanal businesses like coffee roasters, muralists, restaurants, bakeries, and several other craft breweries nearby.
Having grown up in Philadelphia and having family and friends there, Taylor said a number of other reasons drew the team to Pennsylvania. While being close to “many industry friends and some fans,” they will still be within a short distance of the original Colts Neck location.
Right now, the team is putting all of the finishing touches on the exterior and interior of the new space. It will have a large U-shaped bar, several booths and high-top tables and an outdoor biergarten area, as well as a pub food menu and draft towers that will be capable of pouring 28 different brews.
Earlier this year, Source Farmhouse Brewery was honored for owner Philip Petracca’s restoration of the historic Schanck barn, in Colts Neck. In a statement, the county called it “an excellent example of historic adaptive re-use.”
The original structure was built by Lafeyette Schank in 1800. The property was passed down from generation to generation before being purchased by Petracca and converted into a brewery in 2017.
There may be more Source Farmhouse Brewery locations in the future.
“Should we be so lucky we would love to continue to open new brewery locations in the future delivering unique beer drinking experiences and a variety of fresh brews enjoyed straight from the Source,” Taylor said.
