About Our Brewer

Ben Potts has been brewing in the Philadelphia region for over 11 years, working with some of the areas most well known breweries. With a background focused heavily on experimentation and pushing the boundaries of what we know as ‘beer’, Ben has done it all - from working with exotic fruits and spices, barrel aging, mixed fermentation techniques, to even brewing beer with lobsters and scrapple*. With that in mind, Ben brings all of his experience to Second District, creating both off-the wall flavors and classically inspired styles, along with everything in between.

“When the former owner of Nodding Head teams up with a former Dogfish Head brewer, you get some really fantastic beer. Most of it is in classic, non-crazy styles, but with slight variations that make them interesting — this is a brewpub, so all batches are small.” – BillyPenn

“Head brewer Ben Potts’ seasoned background features three local mainstays in Dock Street, Dogfish Head and Tired Hands, so rest assured the beer will be great. The taplist features a diverse blend of mostly sessionable, straightforward and good, honest beers that everyone is sure to enjoy” – Breweries In PA

Amazing atmosphere and really good vegan food and non-vegan as well. I tried two different kinds of craft beer and I was very impressed. The staff was very friendly and even though the place was crowded the service was awesome. I am definitely coming back very soon to this hidden gem in South Philly.” – Google Review
