Philadelphia, PA - Pennsylvania brewer Brian O'Reilly has recently joined alongside Philadelphia restauranteur, Avram Hornik on a new project Mainstay Independent. Mainstay Independent has moved into the old Yard's brewhouse on Delaware Avenue. O'Reilly and Andrew Foss previously from St. Ben's Brewing have already been working hard at crafting an entirely new beer collection. The tasting room formally opened up on November 1.
The label Mainstay Independent originates out of the brew house's approach to develop and uphold a well-balanced profile of consistent and exceptional craft beers. The historical past of the Delaware waterfront district has attributed to a great deal to this latest Philadelphia breweries concept.
"Mainstay Independent is a destination brewery that will contribute and expand the vibrant tradition of brewing in Philadelphia" offers Hornik who, in the new year, will completely transform the space yet again as Craft Hall. Planned for a February opening, Craft Hall is going to comprise of Mainstay Independent, The Lost Bread Bakery, as well as City Creek BBQ all under one space.
Craft Hall is anticipated to provide made to order specialties along with retail goods and ultimately bread and beer making equipment. A limited food selection is coming from chef Adam Lazarick, culinary director for FCM, in partnership with Parks on Tap chef Justin Koenig who will provide food from the start.
