In 1822, Ann Dawson built the building that is now Manayunk Brewery. It was used as a cotton mill. In 1912, the Krook family bought the building and turned it into a woolen mill. However, as textile manufacturing moved overseas, they closed their doors and sold it to Harry Renner IV in 1992. He established Manayunk Brewing Company and Restaurant and tapped the first batch of beer on October 17, 1996. Since the historical moment, the company has brewed over 700 types of beers. In 2004, Mr. Renner’s daughter took over the building. She now runs the brewery and restaurant with Mike Rose, her business partner. They have been hosting weddings for more than 15 years.

Beyond Blown Away!!!
Manayunk Brewing Company exceeded every possible expectation we had. The staff, the food, the atmosphere, and Paris ALL were exceptional. I barely had to look across the room before I had someone asking if we needed anything and this wasn't just for myself and my groom - even my family were treated like royalty. All of our guests spoke about how amazing of a space the brewery was and how much the food was fantastic. I am beyond blown away from how perfect our wedding night was. Do yourself a favor and book right now with Manayunk Brewery! This was the first venue we saw. We knew after seeing the space and meeting Paris that there would be no better place for us to get married! I honestly cannot put into further words how happy I am!Sent on 01/07/2020

Love, love, love Manayunk Brewery!
When my husband and I first started looking at venues, we saw Manayunk Brewery pop up on the list (through the Knot!) and knew it was a great match. We went to go eat there for lunch then tour the venue and fell in love. Not only is the space beautiful, we loved the outside porch (with the option to open it, which we did!), and of course, Paris.Sent on 10/28/2019
Paris was amazing to work with. She answered our silly questions, listened to the ideas we had for the space, and was in general, fantastic to work with. The entire staff at Manayunk really made our day special. We've been to many weddings where the bride and groom doesn't get to eat, has to stand up at the bar waiting for a drink, etc. However, that was not the case here. We were fed first (they asked our preference!) so we could walk around to tables while others ate, we were addressed by name by each staff member, offered drinks every time they saw us walking around (even going above and beyond getting any requested drinks from their downstairs bar if it wasn't available for us), and just always being kind, professional, and helpful to not just us but all our guests as well. They were so happy to fulfill whatever request we had.
The venue was beautiful (I'm still getting compliments on it!), food was great, and drinks were fantastic! Overall, we are so happy we chose Manayunk were blown away by how well everything went and looked. Thank you again Paris and your team! We had a phenomenal time and loved every minute!

The perfect venue!
From start to finish, Paris was absolutely incredible to work with! Her responsiveness made us feel so at ease and her attention to detail helped to simplify the whole process for us. She made our decision to book Manayunk Brewing Co for our wedding that much easier!Sent on 10/15/2019
We could not have been happier with the entire experience at MBC for our ceremony and reception. Our guests were thrilled with the food and drinks, and the entire staff was very attentive and helpful. We are still receiving compliments about how beautiful and unique the venue was - it was everything we could have wanted and more! We were also able to utilize the on-site bridal suite which was simply amazing. It is beautifully designed and the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable!
Would highly recommend this venue to any couple looking for a laid back yet beautiful and classic wedding space. We absolutely loved it!!
