Bill and Nancy Barton wasted no time in proving they are still in the game after the break-up of their problematic Yards Brewing partnership with Tom Kehoe. I got a link to this site in an e-mail today (that originated with Philly beer historian Rich Wagner): Philadelphia Brewing Co. is the name of the new business they'll be rolling out at the Amber Street facility in Kensington.
Best of luck...to all parties. Me, I'd love to see both breweries thrive. It would be good for Philly to have two production breweries.
Oh, and BTW...Uncle Jack already broke this one: Scott "The Dude" Morrison is the mystery brewer at Dock Street. Scott gave me permission to release the story while I was on vacation, and I missed the e-mail in the flood of spam I got. Hoping to be open in August.
