Our Story

Hand Crafted & Handed Down

We all have a first story. It’s the one we tell to strangers, job interviewers and people we meet during the course of a day. It’s who we are, where we’re from, what we do, people we know. But our second story is all about the passion we have deep inside. It’s the things we love to do because it defines who we are. 

At 2nd Story Brewing Co., our passion is the craft beer that you can witness for yourself being brewed on the second floor. It’s where our second story comes together. It’s where our stellar beer is hand-crafted and handed down.

What’s On Tap

We’re proud to make and serve a variety of quality beers. Brewed on a 15 BBL system on the 2nd floor of 117 Chestnut St, our beer is crafted from the traditional ingredients of barley, hops, and water, and sometimes not-so-traditional ingredients.  In addition to the beers made on-site, we offer a full bar and collaborations with other brewers and businesses.
