The Conshohocken Brewing Company announced last night via social media that it is opening two more locations. The locations will be in Havertown and Phoenixville. According to the post, the new locations won’t be replications of each other, but each will have its own concept. They are projected to open later this year.
The state has made it incredibly easy for breweries to open additional locations. They can basically rent a space, use the space to store beer and open a tap room along with it. The license is called a Storage License and is limited to two locations per brewery. A search of the PLCB database shows the Havertown and Phoenixville locations will be utilizing this type license.
Other breweries are also taking advantage of this type of license. Neshaminy Creek Brewing just opened The Borough Brewhouse in Jenkintown and 2nd Story Brewing is opening a location in Chester Springs.
Conshohocken Brewing may also not be done expanding. Its current locations in Conshohocken and Bridgeport both have brewery licences, which means it could potentially open two additional locations.
In March, Conshohocken Brewing made a move to expand its wholesale business through an agreement with Penn and Gretz to handle its distribution to bars, restaurants, hotels, beer distributors, etc., throughout the region.
