March 15, 2009 - Proposed Victory Pub in Easton Now Appears Ready to Happen
According to a story posted on the website of the Easton Morning Call by reporter Michael Duck late this afternoon, that long-awaited brewpub venture between Victory Brewing Company and the owners of The Farmhouse in Emmaus is going to happen, possibly as early as the fall.

The new venture will not be in the former Pomeroy's department store as original planned but will be opened across the street in former Weller Health Education Center. Both sites are located on Northampton Street adjacent to Easton's Centre Square.

From Duck's story:

The brewpub "really fills a niche that's not there right now" in Easton's growing restaurant scene, Mayor Sal Panto Jr. said, adding that the establishment would be aimed at young professionals and the thousands of young families that visit the nearby Crayola Factory.

Art Schmidt Sr., co-owner of the Farmhouse, said plans to put the establishment in the Pomeroy's building evaporated months ago because the project had stagnated. The Weller building will also require much less renovation than Pomeroy's, which has been vacant since 1977...

The brewpub's backers envision it as a 300-seat restaurant offering pub food as well as pool tables, shuffleboard tables and a video arcade. The $3.5 million project could be completed as soon as this fall, said Farmhouse co-owner Art Schmidt, Jr.
