Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company

 It's about time Bucks County got itself a full on production microbrewery.

When I first started working at The CBO I was told, "Oh yeah, there's a guy here starting his own brewery!" and was eventually introduced to Jeremy who confirmed, "Oh yeah, I'm starting my own brewery." It has been pretty interesting for me to have the chance to work with someone who gives me a first-hand and brutally honest account of just how much of a pain in the ass starting a brewery is. While it's been quite a long road for Jeremy and his business partner Rob but they have reached a big milestone, Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company has been federally approved by the Tax & Trade Bureau and are one step closer to being able to sell their beer. While Rob and Jeremy wait for the good old PA Liquor Control Board to approve them on the state level they have set up a few free tastings to get the beer and word out there. While I'll be working Friday night, they'll be handing out samples of their brews and I'm sure I'll snag myself a few:

"Friday, April 15th
Craft Beer Outlet
9910 Frankford Ave. (Morrell Shopping Plaza)
Philadelphia, PA 19114

This is a brewery specific sampling event.  We’ll be pouring our Kölsch, IPA, Weizenbock, and Dunkelweizen.  Again, all the beer is FREE, and we won’t be selling anything since we can’t yet.  We’ll also have some t-shirts and other stuff to give out, so stop by, try out a few of our beers, and of course, check out the rest of the huge selection that The Craft Beer Outlet has to offer.  If you haven’t been to this place yet, you’re truly missing out.  It’s one of the best beer stores in the city!

Thank you to everyone that stopped by and tried our beers at the Rose Bank Winery this past Friday.  We brought over 500 ounces of beer and you kicked everything we had in less than two hours.  Either you really liked what we brought or Ray was pouring pretty heavy Friday night, but either way, thanks so much for the feedback.  Much appreciated.  Thanks to Kellyann and Johnny for asking us to participate as well.

We’ve got a few more events that we’re working out the details on, but will post that information soon.  Until then, we hope to see some of you out at The Craft Beer Outlet on Friday!"

I've had a few of their beers at work and also at a couple ALEiens meetings so I can personally vouch for the beer, they're pretty damn good. If they're bringing the same IPA they brought to the last meeting anyone who comes by Friday night is in for a real treat!

So come out to try some great local beer and keep an eye out for Neshaminy Creek Brewing, cheers!
