Dock Street Brewery to unveil new pub annex with canning line, tasting room

Garage at 705 S. 50th St., which Dock Street Brewery is converting into an annex to its brew pub with a new tasting room and canning line.

West Philadelphia's Dock Street Brewery plans to ramp up production as it prepares to open an annex to its existing location next month with space for a canning line and more drinking room.

The business has been converting a 1,200-square-foot garage next to its 701 S. 50th St. brew pub into what it's calling the Dock Street Cannery and Tasting Room, it said in a release. Dock Street plans to boost production by as much as 75 percent to serve canned-beer customers and visitors to the new tasting room, which will be open Thursdays through Saturdays, spokeswoman Renata Certo-Ware said in an email Wednesday.

Core brews such as Dock Street's Golden IPA will be canned in large quantities, with as few as 40 cases produced of some limited-edition beers, she said. Cans can be purchased on site and at "select" distributors, the company said.

The Dock Street annex is being built in a property that was acquired for $160,000 in December by an affiliate of the owner of the brewery's current space, according to records filed with the city.
