When 2nd Story Brewing first opened in 2014, it was fueled by passion. Passion for creating a warm, fun environment, passion for delivering outstanding meals from our scratch kitchen, but most of all, a passion for making some of the finest craft beer in Philadelphia. Our head brewer, John Wible, delivered on that passion, but now it’s time for his 2nd Story: fatherhood. He’ll be departing to focus on his growing family, and while it’s bittersweet, we couldn’t be more excited for his next chapter!

Of course, as one story ends, another begins, so we’re very pleased to announce that Jason Ranck will join us as our new Head Brewer! Jason has the ingenuity and talent to maintain and elevate our beer program, having distinguished himself already at such local favorites as Neshaminy Creek and Yards. Jason is an award winning brewer, and he shares our commitment to the freshest ales and cleanest, crispest lagers in the city. His experience and ability are alone good reasons to be thrilled he’s here, but he also brings good humor and infectious enthusiasm, and he’s already family.

As our valued guest, you can expect to continue enjoying some of our classic styles, such as the Declaration IPA and Fritzie’s lager, but you can also expect to find something new every visit. Whether it’s new families, new beginnings, new seasons, there’s always something to raise a glass to, and we here at 2nd Story will keep that glass full!
