What You Find When You Find Prism Brewing (810 Dickerson Road North Wales PA)

So, after I found the place…that was the hardest part (I promise to draw you a map below, and no, your GPS won’t get the job done) …I knew it was worth the trip.  Prism Brewing Company, owned by Rob DeMaria, who is the head brewer as well, is located (more like hidden) in a converted industrial site.  It is very much a potential movie set with its tables and bar set against industrial looking walls ceiling and well-worn wooden floor.  So why trek all the way out to North Wales from my humble abode in Willow Grove?  THE BREWS!  Oh, and the JAZZ.  In fact I found out about the location on a jazz web page because the band International Bitterness Unit plays there on Thursdays.  The trio plays nice interpretations of jazz standards and gets a bit funky too, they alone are worth the drive, and you can sit in too.

OK, have I been teasing you not telling you about the brews?  Yeah, a bit, but the jazz was what got me there and it is one of the four elements that will keep me going back.

The elements…first the beer, OMG!  This place has its own creative twist on everything they brew.  I will just tell you that I tasted four beers last night, Bitto Honey (brewed with local honey to soften the flavor of the hops), and White Lightning (a Belgian brewed with cardamom & chive) ask for a taste first…I LOVED it!  On to Shady Blonde (a nice summer thirst quencher made with blood oranges that add a kick) and finally a blend of Bitto Honey and Death March (a hop-less black ale) which is called Bitto Death…yeah save room for dessert!  I do think I have to venture back soon to see if they have a beer that I don’t love…doubtful.

Second element the jazz I touted before and some form of entertainment most nights.

Third the location; hole in the wall lovers rejoice!  Like I said it’s authentic loading platform chic!

Last of the four elements, and certainly not least, is the people, they are flippin’ cool, a really nice crowd about half my age, but they were there for great beer and jazz, so, hell, they were my kind of folks.  Not everyone was under thirty there were some “old heads” like me there too.  Jack the bartender is a nice guy who, I hear, takes out his drumsticks and plays on the bar when it slows down a little.   Oh by the way, he’ll rustle you up one of a list of tasty hot dogs too…they have names the color of the prism and I had a Blue Dog last night…freshly grilled with blue cheese and hot sauce…wow.  OK, so there are five elements!

Oh yeah, and don’t take my word for it…here is what Joe Sixpack said about the place (coincidentally it hit the Daily News the same day I decided to visit Prism) so take a minute to see what you’ve been missing!
