After a visit to the packed taproom of Philly’s Yards Brewing Company, we decided to make the short drive out to the northwestern suburb of Ardmore, PA and continue the rainy afternoon at Tired Hands Brewing Company. During our stop we were able to sample a few of the available beers and speak with co-owner Jean Broillet IV. The name Tired Hands was always what Jean called his homebrewing operation and serves as a nod to the “inevitable culmination of a hard day’s work”. The brewery functions under the label of a brew-café. Belgian and French farmhouse inspired beers crafted by the three brewer team in small batches, averaging about 12 kegs per brew, are served with a variety of charcuterie – meats, cheeses, and some sandwiches with breads made in house. The brewery values locally sourced ingredients, accomplishing this by partnering with about a dozen local farms to source its food.
