When Homebrewing & Russian Literature Collide - Crime + Punishment Brewing Co.

What does a house painter with a PHD in theology contemplate during his 70 hour work week?  In the case of Mike Wambolt, it was dreaming up homebrew recipes & formulating the plans for a craft brewery celebrating Russian literature.   Five years later, his dreams became a reality when Crime + Punishment Brewing Company opened up  in the Brewerytown section of Philadelphia.
You'll find Crime + Punishment Brewing Company at our upcoming MGK Locals Only Beer Festival on April 22 at Independence Seaport Museum.  Tickets are on sale now and selling fast.

They have designed a rotating menu of distinctive brews and Russian-influenced dishes done their way.
