Manayunk Brewery dry again


Closed since August 28, Manayunk Brewery & Restaurant reopened Sept. 15 after flooding caused by Hurricanes Irene and Lee.

This was painful for owner Mike Rose. After flooding caused by Irene, restaurant owners replaced all electrical services, carpeting, appliances in the kitchen and created a new bar in the main dining room.

The restaurant was about to reopen when flooding caused by torrential rains from Hurricane Lee forced it to close and completely replace the carpeting once again.

“We got quite a one-two punch from Lee and Irene,” said Rose. “But, they didn’t knock us out. Everyone pulled together and our contractors did a remarkable job to get us open as soon as humanly possible.”
