When the DVFL folded prior to the 1995 season the team moved to South Philly and played in the Palumbo Rec Center league for 2 seasons.

During the 1983-1994 years, the team played it's home games at Archbishop Ryan High School, and won 5 of it's 6 championships at Ryan, still considered the official Mecca of "Brewer Ball." The Brewers won league championships 4 straight years from 1989-1992, and 6 times overall in a 10-year span between 1985-1994 in the DVFL. The team also won 3 regular season titles in this span.
