Philly’s newest brewery is opening this week as Love City Brewing Company welcomes the public for the first time this Thursday, April 19.
Headed by founders Kevin and Melissa Walter, Love City set up shop in a warehouse-style building just behind Union Transfer on 1023 Hamilton St. Love City got into the building just over a year ago and has been doing construction and renovations since.
The result beautifully designed bar/beer hall with plenty of seating and headroom. Philly Views went into the new space earlier this week to get a sneak peak before the opening.
Here are some photos of the space:
Long, beer hall-style tables mix with laid back lounge seating.
The room opens up to a huge wrap-around bar and additional side seating.
From top to bottom this place has an industrial style vibe that matches other businesses popping up in the Spring Garden/Callowhill area.
Signature beers include Love City Lager, Unity IPA, and Generator Wheat, which are available for take-out purchase at the brewery in quantities from cans to cases. Cans are also available at the bar at Garage Fishtown and Love City is on tap in several bars including Johnny Brenda’s, Standard Tap, and Strangelove’s.
The brewery also serves small snacks including pretzels and dip, pickle plates, soup, and more. There is also an area for food trucks to pull up and park in the actual building. They have a rotating schedule lined up, including Baby Blues BBQ, which is handling the grand opening.
If you miss the opening, don’t worry. Love City will be open from Thursday on from 4 pm to midnight on Monday through Friday, and noon to midnight on Saturday and Sunday.
