Check Out Some of Our Favorite Places in Brewerytown!

brewerytown, PHILADELPHIA

Happy Thursday, Philadelphia! It’s a wonderful day in the neighborhood! This week, we would like to give you an inside look into Brewerytown!

Brewerytown is the gateway to West Girard Avenue’s business community and the home of Fairmount Park’s Lemon Hill. Located in the North Philadelphia district of the city, this “unofficial” region got its name because of the numerous breweries that were located along the Schuylkill during the late 19th century and early 20th century. It is now primarily a residential neighborhood, with an active commercial sector along Girard Avenue. Despite struggling with poverty in recent decades, Brewerytown has seen a recent influx of young professionals, and it is considered a neighborhood on the rise.

Check out some of our favorite local restaurants and bars! If you’re in the neighborhood, these are definitely places you should stop into.
