Posted by Fermentery Form at 2:06PM March 31st, 2023 on Facebook:
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Fermentery Form will be closed to the public until further notice. Fear not, all is not lost, we just need time to weather a season.
Thank you to everyone who has enjoyed this place and brightened our spirits. We will rise again in an even more resplendent form, soon enough. Til then, howdy and good day. Fermentery Form – Facebook Post
There is no word yet on the duration of this hiatus, or what it all fully means. No word from Fermentery Form themselves about the reasoning behind their closure.
Since their post they have received an outpouring of support on their social media platforms. We hope they can soon turn things around (in whatever capacity that means) and are able to soon re – open. We hope nothing but the best for all involved.
Health Inspection Failure
It appears the reasoning for their temporary closure is due to failing several health inspection requirements.
The above is a few pages of the Health Inspection report on Fermentery Form. It was completed on March 31st (the day Fermentery Form announced their temporary closure). You can find the full PDF report here: Food Establishment Inspection Report.
Its disappointing and disheartening to see health code failures by some of our favorite breweries, but it does give them a blueprint and a way to remedy and make themselves better. Which hopefully leads to them continuing this in the future, and will only continue to make their brewery and business better.
No time table has been announced for their re – opening date or when they are planning anything. They have still not commented since their initial post about the temporary closure.
As per Untappd, Fermentery Form is a micro brewery from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They have 91 unique beers with nearly 16,000 ratings. They have a global average rating of 4.15 (as of 4.4.23). Their Untappd description reads: We are a small artisan brewery opening soon in West Kensington, Philadelphia. We focus on wood aged beers fermented with our own mixed cultures.
This is certainly not a good news article, but its far from being a horrible or bad article either. I never like to hear about breweries or any restaurant failing health inspections, and it always makes me feel “icky” or “yucky” inside when I hear about it. BUT – it does provide them with a clear cut path to getting their business and brewery back on track and to open again soon.
This then makes it truly look temporary only, and they just need to make fixes, adjustments, and weather the short term storm. Whereas the Separatist Beer Project announcing a “temporary closure” for both locations, looks a bit worse. Especially since its both of their locations and not just one. That feels like its more of an issue with the whole brewery / business model rather than a temporary issue. But who knows, only time will tell I suppose.

Currently right now we are in the Finals of our Battle of the Breweries (2023). You can check out the final four breweries left in the Finals Fatal Four Way here and vote:
In the upcoming two weeks I am going to do a more thorough look at the full tournament, breaking down the votes and how well each conference winner did. I will also do a full write up on each of the breweries in the Finals Fatal Four Way too, where I will list what articles we’ve done about them, and my visits to each of those places.
We are currently starting to work on creating maps of all the breweries in each state, starting geographically with Maine. So be on the lookout for these great resources to soon be popping up on the blog. Hoping to get a state done every 2 – 4 days. (Some will be quicker and easier than others, but 50 states, plus Washington D.C., will certainly take some time!)
Here is a list of some of our most recent articles:
