Returning to this small local brewery! YAY!!! From their website:
"Prism Beer Company was started in 2009 by Rob DeMaria, a Philadelphia native who found artistic expression in making beer. Having studied film in his early college years, he always had an eye for seeing things differently. In fact, that creative thinking enabled his career in technology, but his artistic expression was still missing. So one day he decided to try his hand in making his own beer. Of course, he couldn't allow himself to follow the recipe verbatim, so he got creative. That first beer would later turn into one of his summer favorites; a Belgian White Ale brewed with Chives. Over the course of the next few years his creative outlet became quite popular with his friends. One day, his friend Tim Bitto asked him to brew some beer for his brothers going away party. Rob had been thinking about brewing an India Pale Ale (IPA) with a twist, naturally, and did so with honey. That beer was so popular at the party, he found more and more people asking him where they could buy his beer and Bitto Honey IPA was born.
The wheels in his head started turning. Over the course of the next year, while finishing his MBA, he did every homework assignment with his business plan in mind. He read, researched, talked, and listened, and in the end contacted Chris Leonard, the owner of a local Brew Pub called the General Lafayette Inn & Brewery. They established a relationship where Chris would brew his beer and see what sort of response Prism got from the market. In November of 2009, the first beer was sold. Less than 6 months later he closed on a small business loan, signed a lease, bought equipment and began building a brewery of his very own.
In October of 2010, less than a year from his first beer hitting the market, Prism Brewing Company was born and beer was flowing out of the new North Wales, PA location. Today we are a growing start-up company with big plans. So check us out, visit the taproom, and dive into our website to learn more.
Welcome to a whole new spectrum of beer."
I don't know about everyone else, but my semester is coming to an end and this calls for celebration!
Be forewarned...this place is difficult to find and essentially on an unpaved road. The place is small, so if we get a big turnout, be prepared for a crowded environment because I'm not limiting the group size.
And still a bonus - the coolest labels I've seen in a while!
