Tom Baker, former owner of New Jersey-based Heavyweight brewing, announced on Thursday that he and his wife are opening a new brewpub in Mt. Airy, Pennsylvania called Earth Bread + Brewery.
Tom posted this note on the Beer Advocate website:
We will offer four primary things at Earth: great flatbreads, intriguing wines, the best beers you never had, and a comfortable space to enjoy the company of others. BTW, for those of you that don’t know, our company name represents our focus on creating and running a sustainable, green-built restaurant.
Cool. A new “green” brewery and its within daytrip distance of DC! I’m very curious to learn what he means by “sustainable, green-built” and plan to find out as soon as I can make a trip up there. One hint that he really gets “sustainability” is that Earth “won’t have any TVs.”
Woo-hoo! The world is a wonderful place. The only way this could be any better is if it were in Washington D.C. instead of the Philly area.
