After running CBB for nearly a decade, and with ~9,000 craft breweries across the United States, we have received a lot of brewery anniversary and birthday party news. Feels like a couple a day. So much that it is typically stuff we skip over. And at first glance, Neshaminy Creek Brewing‘s 10th Anniversary celebration had everything I expected from a craft beer party. Live music, anniversary beers, food trucks, local artisan vendors, loads of dog and a tattoo booth (OK, maybe not tattoos). But then I zoomed and saw they have booked:
- Both Petes from The Adventures of Pete & Pete
- The Screaming Females.
Hot damn. That’s a great niche guest list that seems specifically planned to get my specific attention. How could you even know? Well, it worked, Neshaminy Creek. This is, subjectively, the best anniversary party ever. Here is a post to celebrate. You have already made me sorry I cannot attend.
“The last ten years of being in the craft beer industry has been a wild ride,” says Rob Jahn, Founder and Owner of Neshaminy Creek Brewing Co. “As a small production brewery, it’s incredible to see how many other breweries have opened up in that time. We’ve had to adapt to all of that competition and of course, global events or supply chain issues that keep us on our toes. I’m so proud of everyone that’s been part of the last decade here and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the ebbs of flows of the industry than cracking open some 10% beers in early June!”
Neshaminy Creek is apparently old friends with Danny Tamberelli, best known for his roles in Mighty Ducks, All That and as younger Pete. He returns to the Croydon Taproom with on-screen brother Michael C. Maronna to get the pre-party started Friday, June 10 at 8 p.m. Hosted by Jeremy Balon, The Adventures of Danny & Mike live podcast will be a night of beers, laughs, and nostalgia as the stars reminisce about growing up on the set of The Adventures of Pete & Pete.
The celebration continues Saturday, June 11, 12-7 p.m. with an official 10th Anniversary Party featuring the freaking Screaming Females along with Iron Chic, Wild Pink, Big Nothing, and Graduation Speech.
Other fun on hand is a kid’s corner, photo booth, Yardley Tattoo, and axe throwing with Bury the Hatchet will round out the celebration.
The 10th Anniversary marks a high note for the brewery, coming out of the pandemic with a strong leadership team, an award-winning line of beers, and a stable financial foundation focusing on future growth initiatives.
“The last few years have been an intense learning experience. We came out of crisis to emerge as a stronger, more unified, and better team producing great beer and connecting and sharing experiences with customers whether in our taprooms, at a bar, or in their homes,” says Jenna Ball, CEO of Neshaminy Creek Brewing.
In the coming months, renovations at the Croydon Taproom will reflect the rebrand and enhance the customer experience, the team says. Neshaminy Creek currently has three locations.
And check out these anniversary beers
On June 11, Neshaminy Creek will release Tenured Triple IPA, brewed with Phantasm, a compound derived from New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc grapes, which lends citrus, guava and passionfruit aromas to the beer. The hazy IPA is fermented with Imperial Yeast’s Juice ale strain which enhances the beer’s already vibrant tropical flavors. At the same time, a double dry-hopping of Citra, Nelson Sauvin, and experimental HB586 gives it a massive hop presence.
Neshaminy Creek will also release Decadence, an opulent pastry stout brewed with mounds of flaked oats, 2-row, pale chocolate, and crystal malts for a rich and hearty body. This sumptuous confection was aged in Maker’s Mark barrels for 18-months and conditioned on cacao nibs, coconut, and Tahitian vanilla beans for a dessert-like flavor profile. Clocking in at 12.5% ABV, this beast of a beer is sold in 22 oz. bottles for $20.
