Logo of Manayunk Brewery and Restaurant

During the 1800's and into the 20th century, Manayunk was known for the manufacture and sales of fine textiles, and Krook's Mill, now the Manayunk Brewery and Restaurant, was one of the linchpins of that then booming industry. Anne Dawson opened the mill in 1822 at the mouth of the Manayunk Canal and the Krook family followed with the existing building just short of 100 years later in 1912. A cornerstone from the first mill was placed in the new building. Krook's Mill closed its doors in 1992. Don't miss the antique scale in the downstairs pub which was used to weigh the wool brought into the factory.
