The adventure of creating Vicio Mezcal began four years ago when Rosemarie Certo and Marilyn Candeloro [both of Dock Street Brewery] traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico. The pair was later joined by Regina Pfohl and Joe Dodds in a venture named Dock Street Spirits. They explored and taste tested their way around Southern Mexico and eventually fell in love with a family of mezcaleros with whom they've entrusted specific instructions on a complex and smooth mezcal flavor profile. Vicio is one of the truest, most artisanal spirits out there, made with a little bit of blood, sweat and tears from these Philadelphians. Vicio Mezcal is made by hand with the alluring agave plant cooked in the earth using age-old primitive traditions of Oaxacan mezcaleros. If you ask Marilyn or Rosemarie about the taste of Vicio, they will tell you 'it tastes like lightening and awakens all the senses!' Vicio Mezcal landed in Philadelphia in June 2014 and is seeded to select bars and restaurants in Philadelphia and our neighbors in New Jersey.
In 1985, amidst a proverbial sea of watered down and adjunct-plagued lagers, Dock Street Brewing Co. was born and founded by Rosemarie Certo. As the country slowly but surely started embracing our full-bodied, full flavor brews, the company grew. A lot. Fast forward about a decade to 1996 and Dock Street would become the 26th largest microbrewery in the country, distributing to 24 states, exporting to France and earning medals in the world's most prestigious beer competitions. Dock Street was sold in 2000, but quickly reacquired solely by Certo in 2002. In 2007, Certo oversaw the production of her new brewpub in a converted firehouse at 50th and Baltimore Avenue, in the beautiful progressive West Philadelphia where the beers are served along delicious award winning wood-fired pizzas.
