Beer for a Good Cause

The homebrew club that Dean belongs to collaborated with Earth, Bread, and Brewery on a special brew. The beer will be on tap starting Jan.13th and is a fundraiser for Cliveden.

Dean will be heading there the 19th with the kids for dinner and maybe the 18th for the brewclub’s party if anyone cares to join him.

Cliveden Brewers of the historic site Cliveden and Earth Bread + Brewery, both located in Northwest Philadelphia, are ringing in the new year with a new beer: Cuvée de Cliveden, a rich mahogany belgian style beer infused with raisins, coffee and plums, available beginning January 13th.

The brew joins Earth Bread + Brewery’s already ample selection of house-made craft beer, served alongside hearth-baked flatbreads prepared with fresh made-in-house mozzarella.
Each purchased glass of the freshly fermented Cuvée de Cliveden ($9 with $6 refills) helps to support new educational programs at Cliveden addressing history and racial equality. The preserved 5.5-acre property is known for its role in the 1777 Revolutionary War Battle of Germantown, and was home to the Chew family for seven generations.
