A stroll past the corner of 10th and Tasker streets this weekend presented some promising evidence of progress being made at the former site of 1601. The paper was pulled from the windows, and the door propped open revealed workers putting finishing touches on a nearly complete Fountain Porter, the neighborhood tappy thats been quietly coming together there since last November. A newly launched website for the project says the official opening is coming tomorrow at 3 p.m. Owners Evan Clancy, a former manager at South Philadelphia Taproom, and Scott Pawlicky, longtime Kite & Key barkeep, have 20 draughts listed that theyre opening with. There wont be any bottled or canned beers on offer. Though details are few on the food part of the equation, Passyunk Post, who also has some interior photos, says no pub grub will be served. They add that an as-yet-materialized menu will offer meat, cheeseboards, pickles and more. Well update as more details surface. [Passyunk Post]
