Painting walls 70 hours a week gives you lots of time to contemplate your existence. Mike Wambolt used the time to dream up homebrew recipes. He pondered Raskolnikov’s confession to Ilya. And wondered what, if anything, he’d do with his recently-earned masters in theology. Opening a craft brewery that celebrated Russian literature was nothing more than an eccentric pipe dream. Until his friends started tasting his experiments.
Now, nearly 5 years later, Crime + Punishment Brewing Company serves craft beer in Philadelphia’s birthplace of brewing. Mike and co. are putting the “brew” back in Brewerytown with playfully-named beers packing unique flavor. Beers like Indecent Exposure, The Guillotine, and House Arrest.
From ales and lagers, to saisons and IPAs, there’s something on tap for everyone. C+P aims to blend the once-great local brewing tradition with newer craft techniques and international inspirations. They have designed a rotating menu of distinctive brews and Russian-influenced dishes done their way.
Crime + Punishment is proud to be part of a thriving community. They partner with local organizations to promote the rich culture of Brewerytown. Whether sponsoring the little league or hosting Philly arts events, C+P seeks creative ways to step outside its walls and participate in neighborhood life. It’s not just a place to eat and drink, it’s a place to get to know your neighbors.
Great beer. Great food. Great community. Crime + Punishment welcomes you.
