Pottstown Brewpub Looks Toward Fall Opening

POTTSTOWN PA – A brewpub being installed in the former Warrick Jewelers building at 251 E. High St. should be open later this fall, in a partnership of two men with experience in both beer production and creating tasty dishes. They’re Steve Armstrong, who previously ran Armstrong Ales in East Pikeland PA, and Adam Burke, owner of Lily’s Grill in the borough.

Construction of what is named the Pottstown United Brewing Company began during February (2017) in the structure purchased by Burke about two years ago. Armstong, who is doing much of the construction work himself, gutted the building to its original brick walls.

The pair has received substantial financial help for the project under a downtown business incentive grant awarded last year, funded by Montgomery County Commissioners. A variety of their beers will be brewed by Armstrong using a mix of new and older recipes; the high-end pub food will be handled by Burke.

  • Watch a video (above) of Armstrong and Burke as they are interviewed by The PCTV Network, and a offer a tour of the building in progress, in a program aired earlier this month. It’s available at the network’s YouTube channel, here.
