Eight Years of the New Dock Street

Dock Street Brewery has been a Philadelphia staple for about thirty years now. They got their start in Center City and were a large production brewery for a while, but for the past eight years, they’ve called West Philadelphia home for their brewpub. Well, make that seven years and 364 days to be exact, as the celebration is actually tomorrow, August 25th. In honor of the celebration, they are tapping eight special beers, including a 2008 vintage of their Prince Myshkian Russian Imperial Stout. The bar will open at 3:00 tomorrow and all the beers will be on tap all day or until kicked. Here’s the details from the brewery:
You’re born. (1985) You grow up. (We’re almost 30!) You move out. (West.) You find a house. (A firehouse.)
You spread your roots. You grow a home. And what a home we have!
We’ve been brewing beers + hand-tossing wood-fired pizzas for eight beautiful years in West Philly. To celebrate, we’re serving up eight delicious beers to toast to the neighborhood, the firehouse, and our newest West Philly incarnation in the company’s nearly 30 year history.

The eight (rare) beers for eight (awesome) years are….

 Tart and fruity golden ale fermented dry and dosed with additions of organic chamomile.
Barrel Soured Ninos Prickly Pears, 2013 Vintage
 Bier de Garde brewed with prickly pears. Barrel aged for two years and inoculated with a slurry of wild yeasts and bacteria.  

Summer in Berlin 

A sour twist on our beloved summer session. Brewed with lemongrass and ginger. Opens with a lactic punch that melds beautifully with grassy citrus notes and finishes with a subtle ginger spice.

Prince Myshkin Russian Imperial Stout, 2015
 Taste this and compare with the 2008 version. Hey, it’s research.
Golden goat
 Traditional German Maibock lager. Maibock means ‘May brew.’ Strong enough for late winter, drinkable enough to welcome spring, and still delicious come summer.
Philly Trippel
 Brewed in collaboration with Anne-Catherine Dilewyns of Brouwerij Dilewyns (Vicaris) during Philly Beer Week 2014. A beautiful, dry trippel brewed with Philadelphia honey.
Barley Wine, 2012
 Our original Barley Wine recipe, cellared 3 years, creating a more mellow, rounded drinking experience.
 Our O.G. since Day 1 at the firehouse. It’s been voted among the Top 25 Rye Beers in the World on Beer Advocate. This special anniversary batch is dry-hopped.
