A community of jazz and beer enthusiasts congregated in the heart of Jenkintown this past Sunday for the 10th annual Jenkintown Jazz and BrewFest. King Design was proud to be one of the main sponsors for this event, hosted by the Jenkintown Community Alliance. With the soothing musical backdrop of Denise King, Richie Cole, and their team of jazz musicians, over 3,000 visitors mingled and relaxed in the Town Square sipping fresh craft beer and enjoying the late summer afternoon.
And then the King Design team came along. Armed with bottle opening key chains and insulated beer cozies, we pulled up our neon orange socks to spread the King Design energy to everyone who came near. Our beer pong table drew in both experienced players and future champions alike. We quickly befriended the many breweries that traveled from near and far to showcase their brews, and we each had our own favorites of the bunch. River Horse Brewery, from Lambertville, New Jersey, brought some tasty samples of their Lager and Belgian Wit to the fest.
Philly’s ownPhiladelphia Brewing Company came prepared with their signature Walt Wit and an especially delicious brew aptly named Joe Coffee Porter as the flavor stirred up flavors of a great cup of joe. The Manayunk Brewery and Restaurant, known as a top nightlife destination in the area, came through with a variety of ales fit for any discerning beer drinker, and Hometown Beverages showed off their Pennsylvania and New York Lagers. Also enjoyable were Magic Hat Brewery’s Vermont-based concoctions as well as classics from Gretz Beer Company.
A big thank you goes out to all the volunteers who participated in the event, from manning the crowds to pouring the drinks. They truly made this event a success.
