Known for the manufacture and sale of fine textiles in the 1800s, Manayunk, Pennsylvania is now known for something even more luxurious… beer. Manayunk Brewery and Restaurant is located in the former Krook’s Mill from the early 1800s to 1992.

Harry Renner IV brought the facility in 1996 for a retail space, fine eatery, brewery, and entertainment complex. The first batch of beer was brewed at Manayunk Brewery on October 17, 1996. They expanded in 2000, adding an outdoor area overlooking the Schuylkill River.

Today Manayunk Brewery features staple year round beers, limited specialty beers, and several beer available in bottles and cans. The brewery was renovated in 2014, including a new brew house, outdoor fermenters, more brite tanks, and a glycol cooling system.

One of the latest beers from Manayunk is Crunch. Chocolate and peanut butter come together in perfect harmony to create this luxurious and decadent spin on a traditional porter. With bold chocolate and coffee notes, Crunch is rich and smooth with an insane malt profile and delightful roasty peanut aroma.

This new and limited release brew hit shelves this past July. Keep an eye out, and be sure to pick up a 6-pack if you find it!

Wanna pick this one up? Manayunk brews are available throughout PA and NJ.
