Fishtown - in the throes of a brewing boom - will get a cidery this year.
How about dem apples?
Getz, 33, says they will begin construction soon on what they're calling a test kitchen and taproom that will also serve Pennsylvania wines, beers, and spirits. The Fishtown location, pegged for an August opening, will include a small (3- to 5-bbl) brewing system, as the main work will continue in Bucks County.
Getz and Meyers, also 33, met when Getz approached Meyers to buy brewing equipment from a scuttled brewing project. Getz, who works for Keystone Homebrew Supply, said wanted to turn pro after eight or nine years home-brewing starting with a kit he received for Christmas.
They had been looking in Fishtown because "I'm there all the time," Getz said. "There's a great collaborative environment there."
