Philadelphia Brewing Company Pays Homage to Duke The Brewery Cat

PHILADELPHIA, PA Philadelphia Brewing Co., one of Philly’s oldest and largest breweries, is pleased to announce the release of Working Cat Pale Ale, a limited release draft beer, which pays homage to Philadelphia Brewing Co’s working cat, Duke.

Working Cat is a double dry hopped pale ale brewed with Amarillo and Falconer’s Flight hops, as well as grapefruit and orange peels, which gives the 5% session-able beer balanced citrus notes with minimal bitterness. This newly-released limited seasonal brew is smooth, citrusy and light bodied, and is packed full of aroma. Beer Styles

In addition to Philadelphia Brewing Co.’s Peacock Room and Tasting Room, Working Cat will be available at bars throughout the greater Philadelphia region, including: Cherry Street Tavern, MilkBoy South Street, Garage Fishtown, Interstate Drafthouse, Fishtown Tavern, Standard Tap, and more.
