The Saint Benjamin Brewing Company and Pub, which will be located at 1710 North 5th St. in Kensington if owner/brewmaster Tim Patton gets his way, needs a bit of help to get into running shape. In a Kickstarter-esque setup on Lucky Ant, Patton gives some details, saying:
“We are currently in the process of building our brewery and pub on North 5th St. in Kensington. The new space will include a full-scale brewery and pub, housed in the former carriage house of the Theo Finkenauer Brewery, a fully operational brewery until the late 1800′s. Our goal now is to rebuild our facade with historic features to honor the rich history of brewing here in Philadelphia.”
The plan is to raise $20,000 to partially fund the construction and development of Saint Benjamin’s, and in exchange, you can earn pint glasses, discounts, the right to name a beer yourself, and more. A whole smattering of rewards is available over here, but you gotta donate first.
