Love City Brewing believes that beer isn’t supposed to be complicated. Sure, brewing a good one is part art, part science, but that doesn’t mean the culture surrounding it needs to be so… much. Kevin and Melissa Walter have brought a little more love to Philadelphia and the Spring Garden neighborhood with the successful launch of their 9,000 square foot brewery, Love City Brewing Company. They’re big on the ideal that beer should be approachable and so should the places we drink it. After all, beer is “the workers’ drink” and there’s something nice about the simplicity of the pastime: a special kind of unity born of people from different walks of life coming together to unwind in the same way. Love City is about good people, good beer, and a good way to cap off the day. It doesn’t need to be more complicated than that.
“We are thrilled to be welcoming our neighbors in Spring Arts and across Philadelphia to join us at Love City starting Thursday, April 19,” said Melissa Walter, Love City Brewing Founder. “We love this city and are proud to have created an inviting space where people can enjoy high-quality beer.”
The building at 1023 Hamilton Street was formerly used to manufacture tools and parts for the Reading Railroad. Love City Brewing Co. is one of a collection of curated independent food and beverage establishments recruited by Arts + Crafts Holdings to open in their portfolio of renovated buildings.The brewery officially opened its doors this April with seven featured beers, including their namesake signature Love City Lager. Made with all-American ingredients this beer features a lightly malty body and a clean, crisp finish.
As a part of their initiative to be a good neighbor and member of the community, Love City Brewing will offer Pathways Pilsner, a beer brewed with members of Pathways to Housing PA. A portion of the proceeds from this beer will be donated to Pathways to Housing to support their work to eliminate homelessness. We’ll raise a glass to that!
