There’s something new brewing on the grounds at Mount Hope Estate. Well, sort of. SBC Brewsmiths is now the occupant of the space that formerly served as the sole home for the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire’s resident brewhouse – Swashbuckler Brewing Co. – has been renovated and renamed as the SBC Brewsmiths production facilities. The new look was unveiled in April during the Susquehanna Ale Trail event.
Why the new name? The new brewhouse is a co-op of sorts between Swashbuckler, Divine Swine Brewing Co. and Rumspringa Brewing Co. While each brand has its own location and distribution points – you can find Divine Swine beers on tap at Divine Swine BBQ, located across the street from Mount Hope Estate (2684 Lebanon Road, Manheim); Rumspringa Brewing Co. is located at the Lancaster Beer & Wine Gallery (3174 Old Philadelphia Pike, Bird in Hand) – each is produced in the brewhouse at Swashbuckler. So, in many ways, the new name is a stab at representing the entire family of brews coming out under the SBC umbrella.
Check out the new SBC Brewsmiths production facility at the 6th annual Blues & Brews event on July 18.
