Meal Ticket is reporting that local nanobrewery St. Benjamin finally has a place to call home at 1710 N. 5th Street at Cecil B. Moore Avenue. Homebrewer-tunred-pro Tim Patton hopes to have the brewery up and running by Beer Week in May, but believes that late summer is a more realistic guess. For those rolling their eyes at the ambitious timeline, Patton only plans on brewing two flagship beer and a seasonal to start, which makes this a very realistic goal. [Meal Ticket]
The long-awaited next installment of the Flying Fish Exit series launches tonight with Exit 8 at The Standard Tap. At 6 PM sharp, head brewer Casey Hughes will be busting open a firkin of his new honey chestnut brown ale. We're sure the whole cask will be kicked in under an hour, so if you're a big gotta-have-it beer nerd, get your ass there early. [EaterWire]
Lastly, Brauhaus Schmitz is debuting brews from three new German breweries that are available in Philly for the first time. Hopf, Reutberger, and Schonramer are now pouring at the South Street beerhall, and will be available by the glass or in a series of flights. It's going to be one sloppy night down there, as usual.
