The Sacramento Bee: Announcing Morgan's Pier: The Philadelphia Waterfront's First Destination Beer Garden

May 24, 2012


From The Sacramento Bee:

Avram Hornik, Mark Fichera and Joseph Crouse of Four Corners Management, Sean Agnew of R5 Productions, Dave Pianka of Making Time, and The Bowery Presents announced today that they are opening a new beer garden in Philadelphia, to be called Morgan's Pier. Morgan's Pier, named after the first person to cross the Ben Franklin Bridge, was developed by the group as a part of the rejuvenation of the Delaware river waterfront. This seasonal venue offers a spacious backyard beer garden that boasts a foodie picnic menu and an array of live entertainment. Located at 221 N. Columbus Blvd, steps from the Ben Franklin Bridge, Morgan's Pier will open on Friday, May 25th, 2012.

David Fierabend of Groundswell Design Group took classic elements such as wooden picnic tables, vintage umbrellas and market lights and combined them with urban materials like welded box wire and salvaged wood to create an outdoor setting that is both inviting and original. An abundance of greenery, including Linden Trees, provide an engaging environment overlooking the Delaware River.

The menu, developed by David Katz, will be served until 11pm nightly and includes Fried Jersey Tomatoes, Snack Bacon, Grilled Pork & Ramp Sausage Sandwich, Hamburgers, and Vegan "Chorizo" Tacos. All food items are priced below $10.00 and are made from fresh, seasonal ingredients. A hot dog stand and an ice cream tricycle, serving Philly's own Little Baby's Ice Cream, will also be stationed on the deck.

David has invited other prominent, Philadelphia chefs to Morgan's Pier for a series of events this summer. Chefs such as Michael Solomonov (Zahav, Percy Street Barbecue, & Federal Donuts,), Terence Feury (Fork Restaurant) and Kevin Sbraga (Sbraga) will each spend a day at the pier sharing their idea of the perfect, summer Bar-B-Que.

The Morgan's Pier all domestic craft beer bar will showcase a rotating selection of 20 drafts from regional brewers like Dogfish Head, Troegs Brewing Company and more than 20 craft cans. The bar will also offer great summer wines, signature cocktails and a full liquor bar.
