The Fair Chance Beer Garden featuring Triple Bottom Brewing Company is located outside on Eastern State Penitentiary's historic baseball field. In addition to Triple Bottom beer and soft drinks, the beer garden features a rotating selection of interactive programming like guide-led tours, pop-up talks, and maker space activities.
Established in 2021, both The Fair Chance Beer Garden and its name were born out of a shared commitment to fair chance hiring practices. As fair chance employers, Eastern State and Triple Bottom actively seek to hire people who may otherwise be excluded from the mainstream economy — including people who have experienced homelessness or incarceration — and strive to assess all qualified job candidates fairly, regardless of their background.
