Pizza and Beer (and More) at Urban Village Brewing
The start of Philly Beer Week 2017 brings with it the opening of a new restaurant and brewpub in the Northern Liberties neighborhood. Urban Village Brewing at Schmidt’s Commons on North 2nd Street opens its doors today, June 1st.
The concept, which pairs brick oven pizza made with naturally fermented yeast dough and craft beer offerings, is the brainchild of owners Dave Goldman and Tom Revelli, partnered with Executive Chef Chris Davis. Goldman is a homebrewer, graduate of the University of the Sciences Brewing certificate program, and founder of the Landmark Americana sports bars. General Manager Revelli was a longtime Landmark manager.
Surprisingly spacious, with a large central bar, open kitchen, and including cozy outdoor seating, the brewpub has a modern, warm feel. A multi-tone wood motif throughout, combined with matte metal trimmings and throwback psuedo-industrial lighting creates a welcoming atmosphere, both rustic and urban.
