When in 1996 John Murphy planned creation of the brewery, he chose the abandoned agricultural buildings, more than 30 years of standing idle. John rebuilt them installed stainless steel equipment, topped with copper, and opened the brewery St. Peter's, named after the town in which she is.
Feature of the building is its brewery open design that allows tourists and visitors to the brewery to see firsthand how beer is brewed. Murphy set out to produce a wide range of high-end beer. The main specialization of the brewery was the revival of the production of traditional English ale. Today, more than 80% of ale St. Peter's bottled, and the rest is produced in barrels.
In addition to the unique taste, ales from the brewery St Peters have another difference - a bottle of a special form. Its prototype was the American bottle, which in 1770 produced for Thomas Gerrard - the innkeeper from Gibbstown, near Philadelphia. Tavern Thomas stood on the bank of the river Delaware, on which regularly held various commercial vessels. On one of them a beer bottle and got to England, where after more than 200 years it has found John Murphy. Bottle made of thick glass and having a special oval shape with a short neck, became a kind of hallmark of St Peters Brewery.
