Destiny Brewpub officially closed

First off, Happy New Year everyone. I apologize for the lack of posts. My wife and I had our first child in September and thus my ability to get out and about has been severly limited. And as it seems very difficult to get information about the goings on in downtown Phoenixville via the local paper, my fact finding missions have all but ceased.

Enough of the exscuses. It seems that the 'Reopening Soon' sign on the Destiny Brewpub door was a bit misleading. I am sure it will be reopening, but not as Destiny. There are several signs indicating that the space is for sale or lease. Not sure if the restaurant on the main level is also for sale however.

Not too surprised by this, it was a bit off the beaten path and the layout was strange. Food was good however and it would have been nice to see them integrate the main floor a little better as I think it could have had a chance had they done so.

Here's to hoping something worthwhile takes its spot.

congrats on your new baby.

as far as the phoenix and their lack of news, karin williams was apparently out on maternity leave as well. it looks like she's back, so we may start to get more than a word-for-word copy of the police blotter for a front page. the paper is bad, but what do you expect when you pay your reporters eight bucks an hour and your editor clearly shows no interest in the town?
i'm sorry we lost destiny brewpub. i never truly made it in there- shades of the old smelly moose hall kept me away. iron hill on the other hand is great, though they could shake up that menu occasionally.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
