BREWERS VISIT VISTA HOP FARM and BREW VISTA HARVEST ALE
Every fall before hops are harvested, a handful of breweries will brew a Harvest Ale using mostly or only fresh, wet hops. The Manayunk Brewing team hooked up with our friends at Vista Hop Farm in Orefield, PA (near Allentown) to hand-pick fresh Cascade and Nugget hops. We added over 25 pounds of the wet hops to the kettle within 12 hours of being picked, adding incredibly fresh, crisp, earthy notes not found when simply using dried hops.
MANAYUNK BREWING COMPANY ANNOUNCES CAN DISTRIBUTION
As of 2013, Manayunk Brewing Company has expanded into beer can distribution. We have packaged our three flagship brews: Dreamin' Double IPA, Schuylkill Punch and Monk From The 'Yunk. You will see these cases distributed in surrounding Philadelphia and South Jersey locations, as well as available by 4-packs at the brewery. These three are just the start. In the summer, look for our classic easy drinking beer Summer Paradise. As the weather cools down, we will be introducing some of our holiday favorites like Yunkin' Punkin' and Festivus.

Manayunk Brewery Welcomes Iron Abbey
In the spring of 2012, Rui Lucas of Iron Abbey in Horsham, PA approached Manayunk Brewery about doing a collaboration beer. The seed was planted and it was mutually decided that the first beer in a series of three would be a Belgian Dubbel infused with tart cherries. The recipe was formulated and the brewers from Manayunk made the trek to Horsham to brew a pilot batch. Abattia Octo 8 was born. This beer will be available exclusively at the Iron Abbey in late September 2012 with future beers in this series available throughout 2013. Rui and some of his friends came to the brewery in Manayunk to help out with the brewing. Below are some pictures from that day.
