Crime and Punishment Brewing is located in Philadelphia’s Brewerytown neighborhood, and they reopened for onsite service this week. The famous book by Russian author Leo Tolstoy inspired their name. That’s why they served Eastern European cuisine with their tasty craft brews prior to the pandemic. Now they’ve reopened with the food on a much smaller scale.
They had a large menu of pierogies, kielbasa, etc., but they chose to focus on the beer this time around. Crime and Punishment Brewing reopened this week as a taproom rather than a brewpub. That means they’re serving smaller plates and snacks rather than entrees, but they’re still keeping the kielbasa around. The smoked, garlicky Polish sausage was a staple on their menu. They will also serve a variety of soft pretzels, chips, and pickles.
Current Draft Menu:
- Majestic Rest – 6% All-Citra IPA
- Field Trip Chaperone – 6% Coffee India Pale Lager
