2SP & De Ranke Collab Release


Remember that time Bob went to Belgium and brewed with brewmaster Nino Bacelle at Brouwerij De Ranke? It’s finally time to try that beer!

We’re pumped to announce that we’ll be pouring a keg of the collab, Gravity Never Fails, 5.8%, Porter, at the tasting room on Tuesday, June 6th. Nino and Bob will be hanging out from 4-6pm for a meet & greet.

Gravity Never Fails is a Porter fermented with a blend of two Belgian yeast strains. The beer will be dry with big chocolate flavors and a light roast character. We used an experimental hop called Warneton 7784. The hop was named after the Belgian town where the hop varietal was grown on a farm. The number, 7784, is the towns zip code. Nino, the head brewer at De Dranke, really wanted to showcase this hop based on the malt profile that he and Bob came up with. This lended to a much more hop assertive Porter.

Pizzeria Stella & 2SP Beer Dinner


Philly Beer Week is right around the corner & we have a bunch of exciting events. Including a 2SP beer dinner at Pizzeria Stella. It’ll be family style dining with four courses & FIVE 2SP beers.

What’ll they be pouring?
-Our award winning The Russian, 9.0%, Russian Imperial Stout

Call Pizzeria Stella at 215-320-8000 for reservations.

Cheers to Mike Contreras, our Director of Sales & Marketing, & Junnosuke Nakamura, head of 5GoodImporting, for making this happen.

Erin Dintinger – Sales Rep of the Year


We don’t really get down with mission statements, but for us we have a little mantra: “Pretentious, Never. Passionate, Always.” As a new brewery, we don’t assume we should be on tap at every bar, but god do we love to find nice homes for our beer. And when we do, we are humbled that we are given a shot. To get that shot though, there is a lot of behind the scenes work by our sales people/distributor partners that put in the time with the bar, building a relationship, and preaching the Delco gospel of Brewer Barrar.

At 2SP we were pretty honored, and, honestly, pumped AF, to have our own Philly/Montco/Bucks/Lehigh Valley Sales Rep, Erin Dintinger win the Philly Beer Scene-Sales Rep of the Year! It’s a pretty huge honor to win that award as it is chosen by those in the industry, whether beer buyers at bars/distributors and other brewery sales reps.

Congratulations, Erin! And, as always, continue to keep it real.
