Well Crafted Beer Company began its journey in 1999 when five friends met while majoring in the same program at an upstate New York college. After graduating, we formed families, professional lives and by 2005, had grown roots in Philadelphia. Our common interests and a love of craft beer connected us.
Our passion for beer evolved from drinking and talking about beer to brewing it in our basements, garages, and kitchens. Rick, Doug, and Joe had been home brewing as a hobby and decided to start brewing together in 2007 to produce larger batches, more often. It became a weekend ritual to experiment with blending varieties of hops, malts, and yeasts to create different beer styles.
While brewing numerous recipes, they discovered the impact the water source has on the brewing process. Rick, the Head Brewer, studied, trialed, and tweaked well water to better understand how the water chemistry adds complex personality to craft beer. And the vision of opening a brewery began!
The name, Well Crafted, was inspired by the art of brewing and by combining high quality ingredients with well water to produce beer with depth, flavor, and character. After a ten-year journey, we are excited to open a brewpub in Lansdale, PA! Renovations are complete at our new home located at 310 Madison Street, Suite B100, Lansdale, PA 19446 in the center of Lansdale, steps from the SEPTA train station.
