March 23, 2011 - Appalachian Brewing Coming to Collegeville in May
Appalachian Brewing Company of Harrisburg plans to open its third satellite pub in Collegeville as early as this May if licensing and other factors go as scheduled. The pub will be on the second floor of Collegeville Station on W. 3th Ave., which was the location of the ill-fated New Road Brewhouse a decade ago.

In addition to its main plant in Harrisburg, ABC has locations in Gettysburg and Camp Hill. "We are excited to more toward the Eastern part of the state," Customer Relations Manager Artie Tafoya told the Beer Yard this afternoon.

The entire second floor is being refurbished, Tafoya said, including a new bar. The brewhouse will be a small 5.5bbl system as is the case in the other two satellite locations. "We make specialty beers at the pubs and our flagship beers will be brought in from Harrisburg. We brew specialties in each location and then transfer them back and forth among all the locations so that we can have as many as 15 beers on at the same time. That way we get to do all these great beers that we can't do on the big system."--JACK CURTIN
