Today's featured Flagship Beer of February comes from what will be the youngest brewery in my batch of 28 that I'm featuring during the month. A young one, but one that's already making a big splash on the Philly beer scene.
Love City Brewing's co-owner and brewer, Kevin Walter, came with almost ten years experience at Iron Hill, where he worked his way up from a single-location brewer to a regional brewer responsible in a managerial role for multiple locations. The experience brewing a wide spectrum of beers, both mandatory cores as well as experimental one-offs, served him well.
Love City is tapping into a new neighborhood for quality food and beverage with just a few peers nearby (think: Prohibition Taproom, Roy-Pitz, The Trestle Inn, and The Institute) as well as other destinations including the Union Transfer music venue and The Rail Park recreation trail (being developed in phases) both just around the corner.
The ambiance is comfortable at the ample tasting room/bar inside the converted industrial plant in which they maintained much of the original character. Food is available from food trucks that are able to pull inside the rear of the brewery -- score! No need to go outdoors into foul weather in order to get food. And, the Lager? A must have to start your session at the bar, and maybe to close out as well before heading out. During my recent visit, a Coffee Brown ale -- beans from nearby Elixir Coffee was excellent as well.

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 this Love City beer at the brewery.
