Philadelphia-area beer drinkers will be able to get their hands on canned versions of a local brewery’s Delaware County-branded beer.
Last year, 2SP Brewing Co. of Aston, Pa., in Delaware County debuted and distributed to Philadelphia-area bars its first beer, the aptly named “Delco Lager.”
Since the debut, “Delco Lager” was only available on site and in area bars. Now the brewery is set to debut the American amber lager in cans.
The canned versions of the made-in-Delco beer will be available at the brewery on Saturday and at select bars and distributors next week.
“This beer is special to us, and we hope that people in the region find it as special as we do,” said Michael Contreras, director of sales and marketing. “In some small way we hope that this beer is a representation of that Delco attitude: no fluff and to the point.”
2SP Brewing was founded by Bob Barrar, Delaware County native and former brewer of Iron Hill Brewery in Media, Pa., and Michael Stiglitz and Ben Muse of the Delaware-based Two Stones Pub.
2SP Brewing last year also opened its own tasting room, which has 20 beers on tap, including its collaborations with California’s Stone Brewing Co., Weyerbacher Brewing Co. in Easton, Pa., and Georgia’s Terrapin Beer Co.
The tasting room’s food menu includes paninis and cheeseboards, and there is a rotating food truck schedule on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Also available at the tasting room is Barrar’s “The Russian,” a Russian Imperial Stout, for which Barrar has won multiple awards, including 10 medals at the Great American Beer Festival.
Delaware County’s tourism agency last year rebranded itself from the Brandywine Conference & Visitors Bureau to Destination Delco in order to give the municipality that Delco “edge.”
