Unlike many of the local Philadelphia area breweries, steeped in rich traditions that span decades, Double Nickel is the result of Head Brewer and Co-Founder, Drew Perry’s hard work and commitment to the crafts. Drew has been brewing beer his whole professional life, working his way from the packaging line to head brewer. At his most recent gig, Drew lead recipe development and contract brewing for a Virginia-based operation that produced beer for dozens of other microbreweries. But the dream was always the same: to return to New Jersey and start his own brewery, using his own recipes and sharing the experience with friends and family. After tireless hours brewing and carefully cultivating flavors using techniques he picked up along the way — combined with his own spin on the process — Double Nickel became a reality, and in a short time, is already well on its way to becoming a major contender in the Philly/South Jersey craft beer scene. On our tour, you’ll see firsthand what it took to get this startup from grain to glass.
