HiJinx Brewing Company Knows How to Throw a Party

Allentown Brewer Marks its 10th Anniversary with 11 Days of Events and “Decade of Debauchery” Celebration


ALLENTOWN, PA. —HiJinx Brewing Company will recognize its tenth year in business with a celebration November 4-November 14. The award-winning brewer will host eleven days of events and games, live music, and the release of its Anniversary Brew. The events will take place at the Brewery’s location inside the Bridgeworks Enterprise Center, Allentown’s manufacturing incubator run and operated by the Allentown Economic Development Corporation (AEDC).

“HiJinx initially joined the Bridgeworks incubation program after a few years in business due to the resources offered to manufacturing startups,” says AEDC Executive Director Scott Unger. “They went from running a startup with a single barrel system in a 400 square foot garage to operating an established brewery with a 10-barrel brew system in a 4,000 square foot manufacturing suite. The space and resources inside Bridgeworks also enabled them to design an on-site tasting room with a bar. Since becoming an incubation client in 2014, HiJinx has expanded its manufacturing capabilities to 310 gallons and continues to enhance its customer experience. We congratulate the team on the past ten years and their evolution from hobby to business.”

The celebration begins on November 4 with a disc golf tournament. “We decided to make the party 11 days, instead of 10, to look forward and celebrate the year ahead in addition to the decade behind us. Our business motto is similar to how we make our beer; we like to have fun, do the unexpected, and do things a little differently,” says owner Curt Keck. “When you visit our tasting room, you can try anything from a German Lager to a coconut IPA to a Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter.”

On November 11, Keck will release his Anniversary Brew, a rye imperial stout aged in whiskey barrels. Keck collaborated with fellow Bridgeworks beverage manufacturer County Seat Spirits, using the distillery’s whiskey barrels for the occasion. “This celebration means a lot to us,” said Keck. “We’re recognizing not just the longevity of our business, but our strong community of beer enthusiasts, customers, and partners. We want them to know we appreciate their support.”

David Dunn, AEDC’s Manager of the Bridgeworks incubation program, congratulates the brewer. He adds, “HiJinx represents entrepreneurship in its purest form. Curt Keck has transformed his passion for making great beer into a business that is recognized for its quality, great taste, and value.”

HiJinx will offer anniversary merchandise as giveaways and for purchase. The anniversary design features the original logo next to the newest logo with the anniversary theme, “Decade of Debauchery.” Events include:
