Hello Phoenixville! We are knee-high in construction and working fast and furious to open our doors. After final installation of the brewery we plan to start brewing on August 15 if we have PECO on the same side as the beer Gods. With much mashing, sparging, fermenting and filtering we'll have our six house beers on tap by opening! Our target opening date is Monday, September 25th. This date is still a target and will most likely move up or back depending on how construction goes but everything is proceeding well. We will have more information and a firm opening date in upcoming newsletters. Thanks for your patience and we can't wait to serve you!
