Blueprint Brewing Company | Brewbound.com


At an Industrial Park in tiny suburban village, Harleysville (30 miles northwest of Philly), BLUEPRINT BREWING CO. was designed by the three friends and opened during 2018. Going thru the earthen flat-stoned frontage, Blueprint’s rustic cement-floored, picnic-benched barroom features opposing overhead doors, cavernous ceiling and strung Edison lights.

Blueprint’s prodigious Philly-themed painted insignia covers the wall across from the Formica-topped, corrugated aluminum-sided serving station. An electronic blackboard lists all available draughts and one TV hangs nearby. Six metal-chaired tables fill out the refurbished wood-laden room.

A lounge area leads patrons from the pub area to the brew tank room.

My wife and I grab a few excellent food truck burgers while settling in to devour a dozen choice homemade brews this Friday night in February ’22.

Dry Mexican pale lager, Luchador, let musky grain earthiness reach peppery hop herbage, leaving a mild smoked agave nip.

Dewy amber lager, Pick Me, let tobacco-roasted brown tea crisping contrast caramelized apple sweetness above mild bread crusting.

Flour-sugared vanilla sweetness tingled Cake Cream Ale, an otherwise dry pale malted moderation with spritz cream soda licks.

Lemon-twisted raspberry tartness engaged Raspberry Beret, a dry fruit ale with subtle cranberry and crabapple notions plus cherry rhubarb snip.

Lime-salted guava tartness embittered offshoot blonde ale, Blondeprint Guava, pervading mild white grapefruit, white peach and lemongrass illusions.

Tangy tangerine juicing forwarded White Zombie, an adjunct witbier with delicate orange-peeled coriander spicing, wafting floral herbage and dry pale malt sugaring.

Candi-sugared Belgian blonde, Thicc And Sweet, burrowed its banana-clove sweetness into mild cologned herbal salting before gaining subtle yellow grapefruit and mandarin orange zesting.

Spicy orange-peeled grapefruit tang and candied pineapple tartness embraced The Wizard, a fruitful IPA with light piney hop astringency contrasting oated wheat malts.

Lemon-soured orange spicing pervaded the floral pining of dry Imperial IPA, Tribe Mentality, one of Blueprint’s finest offerings.

Zestful tropical fruiting brightened fruited sour, Sparkle Bomb, letting persuasive grapefruit-peeled pineapple bittering, peachy mango sweetness and pink guava tartness reach its resinous pine bottom.

Sumptuous peanut-buttered dark chocolate creaminess guarded P’Nuts And Bolts, a thick Imperial Stout with wood-charred hops contrasting nutty mocha insistence.

Toasted coconut sweetness guided finer spinoff, P’Nuts And Coconut, letting rich peanut-buttered dark chocolate and recessive burnt marshmallow whims bolster its confectionery goodness.
