Meet the team
Brewed with a Mission. Barrel Splitters Brewing and taproom is Northwest Philadelphia’s first brewery. We are dedicated to the idea that all someone needs to relax is a cold brew, a comfortable chair, and good conversation. That is why we are proud to represent Philly with frequent regulars from all walks of life enjoying our innovative artisan beers. This inviting energy emanates from our taproom and drives us to maintain an incredible atmosphere every day. As we continue exploring new drinks and developing menu items over the next few years, we will work hard to remain your neighborhood watering hole that elevates the brewing tradition.
At Barrel Splitters Brewing, we value supporting our troops working hard to protect our freedoms. For us, it is not about politics or where you fall on either side of the aisle. It is all about keeping the young men and women of our country safe so they can come home to their parents, wives, husbands, sons, and daughters. That is why we are proud to be a military-friendly establishment. When you walk into our taproom, you’ll see fantastic photos of great events and memories you’d expect from a Northeast Philly landmark. Right alongside this memorabilia are flags, photos, and honorifics of those doing their duty, often raised right here in our neighborhood. That is what Barrel Splitters Brewing is at the end of the day, a local destination for those that want an escape so they can relax.
