Overview

Joe Modestine, President and owner of Doylestown Brewing Company, comes from a strong lineage of restauranteurs. Their story starts in 1948 when his Grandfather opened up the family’s first beer distributer in Norristown, PA. Fast forward to 1976 when his Father opened the doors to the Saloon Restaurant in Jeffersonville PA; soon becoming a staple in the community. Today, Joe keeps his family tradition alive with Doylestown Brewing Company; expanding into the Hops Bar & Grill, The Still, Doyle's Down the Alley, and soon-to-be brewery and tasting room by the Doylestown Airport. Head Brewer, Justin Low, is a certified brew master who was the head brewer at Dock St Brewing in Philly, and the force behind the delicious beers you taste today. Joe has taken the last 70 years of his family’s hard work and beer knowledge and applied this into brewing craft beer that Pennsylvania can be proud of, using only the finest ingredients and brewing traditions. Thank you for your support. Cheers, The Modestine's

It is wonderful that Doylestown has its own brewing company! My Friends and I visited the former home of Bobby Simone's, now taken over by the brewery. The English Ale, the Belgian and the IPA are strongly recommended. The salads are OK, but avoid the...More

Good variety of beers. Good food. We had the bratwurst and Reuben. The service was excellent. Came on a Saturday night with good weather. Tough to find parking in this part of town but worth the visit.
