Tired Hands Brewing Company
Innovative craft beer just down the Main Line
Philly proper may get most of the area’s positive craft beer press, but brew lovers would be remiss to not make the quick trip down the Main Line to Ardmore’s Tired Hands Brewing Co.
This Belgo-French cafe-brewery has won some of the world’s most prestigious awards, including second place in ratebeer.com’s ranking of the best new breweries on earth.
What makes Tired Hands special? Flavorful yet simple beers with inventive names like “Perfectly Preserved Brain” and “Beautiful Crystalline Structure” are brewed in one room and served in the next, which aligns with the brewery’s focus on local ingredients and materials.
Those looking to munch on something while they imbibe can enjoy house-made bread fermented with ale yeast, house-brined and pickled snacks and locally sourced cheeses, charcuterie and produce. Guests enjoy it all throughout Tired Hands’ two floors.
The best news: The brewery has become so popular that it’s expanding to a second location just three blocks from its current locale.
