Roy-Pitz Brewing Company To Open Brewpub at 990 Spring Garden
Philly.com reports that Chambersburg, PA craft-beer specialist Roy-Pitz Brewing Company plans to open a new brewpub at 990 Spring Garden St.
The proposed 4,000 sq ft brewpub, to be named Roy-Pitz Barrel House, is being designed by Center City-based architecture firm, Boxwood Architects.
Friends since the first grade all the way through their graduation from the Siebel Brewing Institute located in Chicago in 2006, Roy-Pitz founders Ryan Richards and Jesse Rotz have built their brewery up from humble beginnings. According to their website, “Since its inception, Roy-Pitz Brewing Co. has won 23 medals at The World Beer Championships held in Chicago.” And now the young brewers will be bringing that pedigree to Callowhill.
Roy-Pitz refers to its beer as “liquid art”, and that is a deserved title. The Chambersburg brewers have some of the most beautiful and visually interesting bottle labels in the entire craft-beer world.
The addition of the Roy-Pitz Barrel House cements the neighborhood as a flourishing location for food and arts in Philadelphia with the future additions of the Rail Park, the new Yard’s Brewing Company location and neighborhood stalwarts such as Union Transfer.
Fans of Roy-Pitz and newcomers alike can look forward to the Barrel House adding another great spot for craft-beer in the first quarter of 2017. •
