Taste the Nation with Rybread Cafe’s Multi-City Sandwich Menu

Rybread Cafe, Fairmount, Brewerytown With a name like Rybread Cafe, you can practically taste the dark strong bread. The 23rd and Fairmount sandwich shop is new to the Fairmount and Brewerytown neighborhoods and it comes with a story that has some backbone to it. Owner Ryan has a background in architecture, a set of skills that we like to think is closely related to how well you can build a sandwich. That would make sense, right? After losing his job during the changing economy, Ryan set off for a road trip across the country for 7 weeks.

He ate quite a few sandwiches and then it hit him. With the cities he visited as sandwich creations on his menu, he developed Rybread Cafe.  Which locations inspired his sandwiches?

The NOLA with shrimp salad and greens

The Hollywood with hummus, cucumber, red onion, and shaved carrot

The Philadelphia with  genoa salami, hot cappi, prosciutto, sharp provolone, greens, tomato, onions, and vinaigrette.

The bread is such an important base that Rybread stocks the right breads for every occasion, with specific sandwiches calling for a soft sandwich bun, a thoughtful sourdough or a wholesome multigrain, or even a crisp baguette to carry the flavors. There are soups, salads, and breakfast sandwiches to round out the offerings.  Then there's the panini menu, that tributes such cities as San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, New York, and the Alexandria.  The latter two are both pressed on rye bread.

So next time you're biking through and lunch time is swiftly approaching, brake for some rye bread to bolster your afternoon ride.

Things to Do in Brewerytown: Bike Fairmount Park

Biking in Fairmount Park is one of the best ways to spend an afternoon weekend in Philadelphia. It's especially easy for those that live in Brewerytown or the Art Museum/Fairmount areas, because the Park is practically your back yard.

The gorgeous views and fresh air will help you unwind, and the winding roads that hold the secrets of Fairmount Park will satisfy any adventure-seekers.

Some persistent riders even make it all the way to Devil's Pool, a secret 30-foot waterfall in the Park.

You can check out the Fairmount Park site for trails in the area that are suitable for any rider, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned cyclist. Even if you don't bike, Kelly Drive is perfect for jogging.

Ready to Drink Philly Ale at the Philadelphia Zoo?

If you're an adult and you've never been to the Philadelphia Zoo (or haven't gone since that class trip years ago),  the Summer Ale Festival is an opportunity to have an animal adventure, grown-up style. If you happen to live in nearby Brewerytown, just consider this instead of another evening at your local pub.

This is the second year for the annual fundraising event brought to us by the Philadelphia Zoo and Rolling Barrel Events.  Expect lifesize LEGO brick animals as part of Creatures of Habitat: A Gazillion Piece Animal Adventure.  Craft beer from several breweries including Dock Street, Manayunk Brewery, Philadelphia Brewing, Victory, and others will be on tap. Regional cuisine from local favorites like Cantina Dos Segundos, the Abbaye, Rembrandts, and more will be served.

During the event, you can vote for Philly's Favorite Summer Beer. The beer that receives the top votes will be announced in the July/August issue of Philly Beer Scene Magazine.

Tickets range from $25 for designated drivers to $55 for general admission and $80 for VIP access. You can purchase tickets on the web site.

We're a city that loves animals just as much as we love our beer, and with this event, you can have a good time appreciating both.

Summer Ale Festival
Saturday, July 24
6:30 - 10 PM

Our Favorite Kind of Math: Art + Soul Food in Brewerytown

Art + Soul Food BrewerytownArt is soul food. Soul food is art. The two go together nicely, and the second year of Art + Soul Food in Brewerytown is this Saturday, June 12 from 2 - 6pm. From 26th to 29th Streets along Girard Avenue, the sights and smells will envelop you.  On the sidewalk, 20 businesses and galleries will celebrate the arts and delicious tastes of soul food.  While you're at it, you can watch some art in progress. Muralist Willis Humphrey has plans to paint a new mural with volunteers during the event. Brewerytown's own Darryl McCray (known as Cornbread, the godfather of graffiti in Philadelphia) will debut the trailer of his documentary "Cry of the City". The Heineken Afterparty will be held at North Star Bar.

Make sure you get a piece of that cornbread.
