Philadelphia has been a center for brewing since the 1700s. This exhibit draws on the breweriana collection of Larry Handy, focusing roughly on the period from 1850 to 1950, when Philadelphia was known as the “Workshop of the World.” Since 1970, Larry has amassed superb examples of brewery photos, trays, literature and other memorabilia.
This exhibit includes videos from Larry and local beer historian Rich Wagner, as well as opportunities to meet and talk with Larry and other present day participants in the burgeoning craft brewing industry.
In conjunction with Sor Ynez, Nextfab’s Mexican restaurant, the Museum will offer discounted beer specials for museum patrons.
