Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Thirstoberfest, Memphis Taproom

Thirstoberfest, Memphis Taproom

Fishtown’s Memphis Taproom, which features a rotating list of American craft beers in addition to Belgian, German and English varieties, serves as a popular neighborhood meeting place and the site of the annual Thirstoberfest celebration. The neighborhood in which it resides was named for its former role as the center of the shad fishing industry on the Delaware River. While historically Fishtown has been a working-class neighborhood, in recent years it has experienced a regentrification, with housing redevelopment and the opening of upscale art, entertainment and dining establishments.
