This April, Dock Street Brewery in West Philly will be canning their beer! And not just regular sized beer cans – 16oz cans! For the first time ever, Dock Street will offer customers 16oz cans of Dock Street Golden IPA, a true crowd favorite. They will also brew two small seasonal offerings of the No Exit Double IPA and their Berliner weisse with blood orange beer, Jip The Blood.
Dock Street has been building a cannery and their very own tasting lounge the garage next door to the brewpub and eatery. This space will function as an area to ferment, age, and can beer onsite round the clock. The room will open for beer tastings allowing guest to live the full brewing and tasting experience. They will also offer draft wine, classic cocktail, and beer cocktail tastings along with small bites every Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
With their undoubted success of canning beer and the tasting lounge, Dock Street will continue to incorporate more central brews into cans in the coming months.

About the Beers…from the brewers at Dock Street!
6.0% BV 45 IBUs – We designed this golden-hued, clear IPA so that hop flavor and aroma are the primary experience. Oats and a touch of caramel malt make for a mouth coating light body balanced with medium bitterness. Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe, and Amarillo hops create flavors and aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, and just a hint of pine.
ABV 8.5%, 75 IBUs – Double IPA – Hell may be other people, or so says Jean-Paul Sartre in his play No Exit, but this beer is heavenly. No Exit has an intense, dry, dank, earthy and citrus flavor. Generously hopped with Columbus, Centennial, Simcoe and Amarillo hops. Slightly sweet, plenty bitter and full of hop stickiness.
JIP THE BLOOD
ABV 4.5%, 4 IBUs – Named for the South Philadelphian by the same name. This Double Berliner Weisse, fittingly brewed with blood orange puree, flows much like the man they called Jip the Blood. It starts off with a substantially quenching punch of sourness. That intense but pleasant tartness fades to a wonderfully balanced character and body with notes of citrus. This beer comes on strong but leaves you with an enduring and unforgettable finish, or so the story goes…
