Here’s to beer’s historic return to East Falls — may Wissahickon Brewing Company thrive and prosper at their spectacular location on School House. Pics & video from Opening Day, plus owner Tim Gill’s personal recap.
After months of “open houses,” Wissahickon Brewing Company officially cut the ribbon (er, construction tape) on the first local brewery here since Hohenadel closed in the 50’s. And so kicked off a weekend-long celebration that filled the area with craft beer lovers, curious neighbors, kids, dogs…
“I don’t know, guys, I think East Falls might be getting some vibe,” said O Claire, neighbor & owner of Koco Nails on Ridge. She and her dad, Myron, met us late Saturday night as the party was winding down, actually.
Earlier that day, WBC was almost too busy, with limited seating and long waits for beer — not that anyone seemed to care (us included, we had a blast!)
