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.

The Perfect Wedding Venue
We cannot say enough good things about Manayunk Brewing Company and its venue coordinator, Paris. Last summer when we were on the hunt for wedding venues in PA, Manayunk was the first and only place we ever looked at. We wanted a place that felt like us; somewhere with a lot of character and not too traditional. Manayunk Brewery fit the bill perfectly for our 150 person wedding and Paris as the venue coordinator and point of contact was the cherry on top. Due to the pandemic we unfortunately had to push our May 2020 wedding to August, and are now in the process of indefinitely postponing it. Paris has been so understanding and flexible and unlike some vendors/venues, genuinely cares about each individual client. We hope that some day down the road we will be able to hold a big celebration there!Sent on 05/21/2020

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

Stress free wedding!
I had a beautiful winter wedding here in December 2019. Their space is great no matter what time of year, and they are working on providing more spaces now. The space is above the Brewery but there was no noise spillover and the food was great! You are required to use their kitchen/food but they have lots of options and add-ons.
I could rave about a lot, but honestly, Paris (the coordinator) is the main reason we chose Manayunk and should be the reason you at least look at this venue. She was so helpful, responsive, and accommodating the entire time we were planning and especially the day of our wedding. My maid of honor keeps joking that she didn’t have anything to do because Paris took care of it all! Everything was absolutely magical.Sent on 06/17/2020
