Earth Bread + Brewery

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.

    The closing of Heavyweight was a sad day – I kept my last few bottles of Perkuno’s Hammer (empty, of course – sentimental but not stupid) – so I’m eager to see what Tom does next.

    I never had the pleasure of knowing Heavyweight. But I look forward to getting to know Earth.

    I can’t wait to hear what the brewery is like and how their product is.
