The brewed goodness from Tannery Run Brew Works in Ambler proved very popular at a Pittsburgh beer festival.

Adena Brewington-Brown has a surname that fairly drips with appropriateness for her skill at brewing beer. She has tapped into that connection to become a successful producer, taking her Tannery Run Brew Works fare to a Pittsburgh festival. Jon Moss reported her trek in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Not only is Brewington-Brown’s ID wholly appropriate to the product she now co-produces, it also reflects her birthplace: the Brewerytown neighborhood of Phila.

Her gene pool, as well, has suds in it; her African American, Croatian, and Native American ancestors all brewed spirits of one kind or another.

So, it’s no surprise she’s now co-owner of Tannery Run in Ambler.

Her recent Pittsburgh run was to participate in the city’s fifth annual Barrel & Flow Fest.

The 2022 edition was especially open to producers of color like Brewington-Brown. She appreciated that the event set out to “…highlight people from different backgrounds” among craft brewers.

“This is a great outlet and medium for us to come and network together, but also to be exposed to the general craft beer community,” she concluded.
