My Local Brew Works (MLBW), Philadelphia’s soon-to-launch nano-brewery focusing on contract brewing, special events, and direct-to-public brewing, is sliding into Philly Beer Week with this year’s most spirited event — First Look: Tour To Dye For – a brewery tour led by founders of My Local Brew Works, including the Globe Dye Works (an event and workspace focusing on makers and the creative community), and wrapping with beer tastings and parting gifts from MLBW. The two scheduled events bookend PBW with tours on Saturday, June 5, and Saturday, June 12, from 1-4 pm.
My Local Brew Works founders, Tim Montague and Wayne Humphrey, two award-winning local homebrewers, will lead groups of up to six people maximum per hour in a never-before-seen look into the brewery at the Globe Dye Works building in the city’s Frankford area.
In addition to Montague and Humphrey, longtime home brewing expert and mentor to the aforementioned, George Hummel will be on-site to answer questions and share his expertise. Hummel is the founder and owner of Home Sweet Home Brew, the region’s premier source for all things fermentation.
Each group will have one hour to tour the building, a reimagined Civil War factory, including the nano-brewery in which Montague and Humphrey have built from the ground up. As the tour wraps, craft beer enthusiasts will sample various styles from My Local Brew Works and leave with a specially brewed parting gift from the brewers. Additionally, guests will have the opportunity to purchase freshly-minted merchandise from MLBW.
“As we prepare for our grand opening, we would like to give beer-lovers a chance to meet us and experience our nano-brewery, which we are very proud of,” said Co-Founder and Director of Partnerships & Branding Wayne Humphrey. “We figured what better time to welcome folks safely into our space and taste test our brews than during Philly Beer Week?”
Space is minimal, and securing a tour is on a first-come-first-serve basis.
