Schaylor Brewing Company

Did you know that Berks County has a local brewery? Yes, right here on Lancaster Ave – and it has been open ever since November 22nd, 2017! There are two main owners of this company – Luke Schmidt, and Josh Taylor. At Schaylor Brewing Company they brew their beer right inside the restaurant, where sometimes you will be able to see the brewers do what they do best. Schaylor has Josh, Nate, Joey, and Marty who are all brewers! There are over 100 different beers. Also, they brew their own flavor of cold brew coffee with Twin Valley Coffee’s coffee beans, as well as their different flavors of kombucha.

There is an amazing outside area where you can find many different things to do. There are four picnic tables, two pergolas, and a whole bar just outside! There is also games including cornhole, and Can-Jam, as well as a moon bounce that is located there all the time. Oh, and do not leave the four-legged friends at home because they are more than welcome! The only thing they ask is always to keep them on a leash.

Schaylor Brewing Company is very helpful within the community. They participate in many different fundraisers! One was for the a local college, Alvernia University, the fundraiser was to help the funding of an alternative break trip. There are also events such as goat yoga, beer yoga, a .5K, live music and more!

While everyone comes to a brewery for the beer, there is way more than just drinks! We cannot forget all the yummy food and snacks. One of the most popular snacks is the popcorn! People go crazy for it and always ask what it is that they put on their popcorn. The secret is to be kept quiet! There is buffalo blue, which is spicy but also has blue cheese crumbles on top. The garlic and herb, parmesan truffle, salted caramel that is great to finish a meal with and of course the beer brownie! For main meals they have paninis, wings, fries, stuffed pretzels, flatbreads, and more. This restaurant may have a small kitchen but it does not hold them back from creating delicious meals for everyone to enjoy!

If you haven’t been over to enjoy this lovely place, I highly recommend everyone in Berks to swing by and enjoy this establishment. There is so much to enjoy starting with the perfect environment, the beer, the food, the staff, and more. Everything about this place is worth your while to check it out and everyone should put it on their list of places to go for dinner! Enjoy the beer, enjoy the outside games, enjoy the delicious food, enjoy everything this place provides for its community.
