Here's What You'll be Drinking When Cherry Street Pier Opens on October 12

Cherry Street Pier will open on the Delaware River Waterfront on October 12, and will bring local spirits, ice cream, family-run restaurants, and more to the massive space on the river.

The space is expected to play host to local markets, art exhibitions and installations, and programming like Festival for the People (October 13-28), but it will also be home to three exclusive food partners: Birdie's Biscuits, Little Baby's Ice Cream, and Hardena/Waroeng Surabaya.

James Beard nominee Hardena/Waroeng Surabaya will offer Indonesian cuisine ranging from redang hoagies to satay, Birdie's will serve up sweet and savory biscuits (only on weekends), and Little Baby's will sell its signature unique creations, including a revival of a collaborative flavor with Birdie's called Balsamic Blueberry Cheesecake Biscuit.

Most importantly, the bar program at Cherry Street Pier will offer everything from cider to whiskey. Kurant Cider will be supplying ciders that are exclusive to the pier alongside their most popular varieties, and Philadelphia spirits Kiki Vodka and Five Saints Distilling will offer up local liquors for original cocktails like the Cherry St. Mule (Kiki Vodka with cherry juice, lime, and ginger beer) and the Pier 9 Punch (Five Saints Whiskey, chai tea, lemon juice, apple cider, and club soda). A collaboration with Artisan's Cellar is also forthcoming so that the space can offer a draft wine system, and alongside a rotating list of local beers from spots like Yards and Evil Genius, Yards Brewing Co. will offer a special beer called For The People, made specially for the Festival For the People.

October 12 is the grand opening of the space, so stop by then or any time after for local food, ciders, and spirits, and to explore this massive new space.
