Philadelphia, PA - In a mostly male-dominated industry, Nancy Barton stands at the Philadelphia Brewing Company's helm, one of Philadelphia's oldest and largest breweries. Barton and her husband Bill Barton have been the brewery proprietors located in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia.
Barton and Philadelphia Brewing Company
Barton and Philadelphia Brewing Company brew an impressive 15,000 barrels of beer per year, consisting of five year-round beers, several seasonal beers, and occasional one-off recipes, including their flagship beer — Kinzinger. One decade after opening Philadelphia Brewing Company, Barton expanded by launching a new bar, The Peacock Room — a 30-seat tavern selling Philadelphia Brewing Company beers and Commonwealth Ciders on tap and bottles as well as snack plates and craft cocktails with local spirits. Additionally, their beer garden is open for service year-round with bench style, covered seating for purchasing beer to-go, bring-your-own-food, and dog-friendly.
One of their many accolades includes the fan-favorite Walt Wit being named Wheat Beer of the Year by Beer Scene Magazine. Barton has expressed a strong interest in community involvement and focuses on local distribution instead of distributing heavily across the country. Barton has shown support to local pet shelters by hosting fundraisers. In most recent years, hosting "Caturdays" at Philadelphia Brewing Company, where the Pennsylvania SPCA brings adoptable cats to the tasting room for potential adopters to choose from.
