I used to live in Fairmount back in the late 90s. Brewerytown wasn't much of a destination back in those days. North Star Bar was pretty much the best reason (and a very good one I must add) to head anywhere in the neighborhood of Girard Ave. There's been a slow change in that over the last 5-10 years and C&P is part of that movement. I'll often say if places like that were around when I lived there, I may have never graduated from renting to owning.
Crime & Punishment is the perfect neighborhood brewpub for Brewerytown. With a unique backstory rooted in Russian literature, you can expect to find food and beer that follows suit. Plus, a cozy environment perfect for catching up with friends. In addition to a nice variety of styles always on tap, the English Mild (3.5%) that I had at my most recent visit should not be missed.
Now go click the picture below for a full feature on Crime & Punishment's Space Race IPA.
If you're just jumping in during the middle of this and want to know what this is all about, link back here to see the Flagship February overview as well as an ongoing list of all beers I'm featuring during the month of February.
Disclosure: For this project, I solely created the list of 28 beers featured here on The Brew Lounge. I was in contact with each brewery and neither required nor requested complimentary samples. I purchased today's Crime & Punishment beer while at the brewpub for dinner.
