Owner and Brewer, Wes Phebus has been brewing beer since 2017. Starting as a homebrewer, he quickly found a passion and developed quite a talent for brewing various styles of beers. He decided to brew professionally in 2018 and spent 2 years with Something Wicked Brewing in Hanover, PA until opening our current location. Owner and Manager, Casey Phebus started her career in banking and spent 18 years working for a local financial institution as a commercial lender before leaving to focus on family and the growing business. They have been married since 2019 and have beautiful twin daughters.
Really great beer and atmosphere is spot on. Love the way they have partnered with other local small businesses to make it truly unique..
As a couple of beer lovers, they wanted to share their passion for craft beer with their hometown so they opened Waynesboro’s 1st craft brewery in over 100 years. We brew with a 5 BBL system and serve beer in our completely restored and historic location on Main Street. Our taproom has 9 revolving draft lines as well as several other beer options in cans or bottles. We also offer a cocktail and wine menu featuring only local PA products. The food menu features Crab Pretzels, Empanadas, Cheese Platters & more from local businesses as well as shareable pizzas for your group. You are also welcome to bring food in from our local eateries and we are family friendly while also allowing pets on our newly remodeled patio out front. Additionally, we do take our craft on the road and have a refrigerated van that features 4 taps on the side for your business Happy Hours, Weddings, Birthday Parties and more. Downtown Waynesboro is absolutely beautiful with its brick walkways, floral arrangements and cool businesses, stop down and see what the hype is all about!
The current location was previously the Waynesboro News Agency on Main Street and was purchased in May of 2019 and after 9 months of extensive renovations , we opened our doors in February 2020. We upcycled as much as we could including 4 full size bowling lanes in the back production area which we turned into our tables, benches and bar tops. You can view the walls and ceiling that have been soda blasted to remove years of paint and reveal the gorgeous multi-colored tin below. We acquired and remodeled the original kegerator from Mathia’s Bar and Tavern which was put into use in the 1950’s and is viewable immediately upon entering the taproom. The shelving that has been used for years in the News Agency is still in use and holds our glasses and apparel displays. We completely gutted, poured concrete and rebuilt the back area that now houses our brew house and manufacturing area. The original Waynesboro News Agency neon sign has been restored, reconnected and is now lit inside the taproom for a rustic ambiance that you will love.
