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.

Manayunk describes Summer Paradise as a crisp, slightly tart, wheat-based ale that makes one wonder how so much flavor could be bestowed upon each sip. This thirst-quenching ale keeps with the tradition of brewing easy drinking beers during warmer months. With just a hint of spices, within a backdrop of citrus, it will remind you a summer in paradise.
