Introducing Taps Under the Towers: Roxborough’s First Beer Festival
Fall is just around the corner, and Roxborough is about to become the place to be for beer enthusiasts. On September 23rd, New Ridge Brewing Co. will be hosting Roxborough’s very first beer festival – Taps Under the Towers. From 1 to 5 p.m., beer lovers can gather at Roxborough Pocket Park right outside of New Ridge Brewing and indulge in unlimited beer samples from 20 local breweries.
“We’ve been dreaming of organizing a beer fest ever since we opened our doors over three years ago,” says Eric Endrikat, co-owner of New Ridge Brewing. “We wanted to create a fun-filled day for our neighborhood, showcasing amazing beers from our friends’ breweries. We’re really excited to be the ones bringing this beer fest to Roxborough.”
The festival will not only serve up a variety of beers, but it will also benefit Friends of the Wissahickon, an organization dedicated to the preservation and restoration of the Wissahickon Valley Park. Attendees can enjoy the festivities knowing that they are contributing to a great cause.
Among the breweries participating in Taps Under the Towers are Attic Brewing Co., Boardroom Spirits, Brewery ARS, Brewery Techne, Carbon Copy, Chestnut Hill Brewing Co., Dock Street Brewery, Human Robot, Iron Hill Brewery, Kings Road Brewing, Love City Brewing, Other Half, Punch Buggy Brewing, Sacred Vice Brewing Co., Two Locals Brewing, Wissahickon Brewing Co., Wrong Crowd Beer, and more. These breweries will offer unlimited beer samples for attendees to savor throughout the afternoon.
In addition to the beer, Taps Under the Towers will also feature a whole pig roast from Green Meadow Farm and other food options, including vegetarian choices. Local band Mitchell Street Phillbillies will be providing live music to keep the atmosphere lively and entertaining throughout the festival.
Tickets for Taps Under the Towers are priced at $60 and include a 5-ounce tasting glass for unlimited pours. Please note, this event is strictly for those aged 21 and older, so don’t forget to bring your identification. Tickets can be purchased at https://www.newridgebrew.com/events.
Apart from Taps Under the Towers, Roxborough will also play host to Roxtoberfest later in the fall. This beloved street festival, celebrating its 11-year legacy, will take place on October 7th from noon to 6 p.m., with an October 8th rain date. Roxtoberfest promises a traditional German beer fest experience, complete with performances by an Oktoberfest band, thrilling circus performers, spirited competitions, a wide range of food trucks, and plenty of fall-inspired beverages.
While strolling along Ridge Avenue from Lyceum to Leverington Avenue, festival-goers can explore over 60 unique crafters and learn more about local community organizations.
