The Reading Terminal Market opened its doors in 1892 with approximately 78,000 square feet and nearly 800 spaces for new merchants. The Market was laid out in a grid system similar to the of streets of Philadelphia with twelve aisles and four avenues making it the perfect location to easily ship and receive goods.
The Philadelphia Brewing Company has brewed this beer to commemorate the 120th Anniversary of the Reading Terminal Market. The beer, named “Engine 1892 Market Stout” via a Facebook contest conducted by the Reading Terminal Market, is a roasty stout brewed with chocolate and vanilla beans sourced directly from market vendors. At 6% abv. this stout promises to keep you on the right track.
