Tom-KehoeIt may seem intimidating to be a steward of a legacy that stretches back to the very moment King George III got served, namely with the divorce papers we celebrate as the Declaration of Independence.

But for Tom Kehoe and his Yards Brewing Company, playing a part in that American Revolution stewardship is an enormous source of pride.

For a decade and a half, the Philly craft brewery and City Tavern , a living-history restaurant in Old City Philadelphia, have been curators of historic beers, brewing and serving a quartet of 18th century ales, made from recipes walked back to heavy hitters in America’s Founding Fathers lineup.

“I love having this on my back,” Kehoe says. “I love the beers.”

The re-created spruce ale, porter, and pale and golden ales – Ales of the Revolution – go well beyond telling us how Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington satisfied their thirst.

They’re a tangible history lesson that puts brewhouse and tavern in the timeline of two of our earliest presidents and two of our shrewdest statesmen. The ales let us have a beer with our Founders, toast our past and future (and the pursuit of happiness) with some folks whose best work – our country’s way of life – still commands a big party every summer and is never far from our thoughts.

Here’s one from the Beer-Stained Letter video archive, a piece from 2008.

That year, Weyerbacher Brewing responded to a hop shortage by taking a shot at growing an acre of hops in northeast Pennsylvania.

The Easton, Pa., brewery got some key knowledge-base assistance from Snyder Farm in Hunterdon County, the Rutgers University research farm that did some hop-growing trials back in the late 1990s. Snyder was thus able to offer Weyerbacher some guidance on its hops project.

Weyerbacher reaped a small, but still impressive, haul in August 2008 that went straight into a fresh-hop harvest ale. 

 

A glimpse at Flying Fish's bottling line, the largest craft beer bottling line in the state.
