Craft Beer Brewery, Food Trucks and Fun Coming to Newtown Commons This Summer

Craft Beer Brewery, Food Trucks and Fun Coming to Newtown Commons This Summer | Newtown News of Interest |

A new craft brewery is opening in Bucks County. The Newtown Brewing Company will be setting up in Newtown Township, and anticipates a summer 2019 opening, the owner confirmed to Patch.


Gregg Bonstein, Newtown Brewing Company owner, said the business has received full approval from Newtown Township to move forward on its plans for a brewery in the Newtown Business Commons (read “Summary of August 22, 2018, BOS Public Meeting” - includes video of comments from the Planning Commission chair).


Newtown Brewing Company will be located at 103 Penns Trail, and will share a 10,000-square-foot building with Sir Speedy. The brewery will have about 4,600 square-feet of space, with half of it dedicated to brewing, manufacturing, and warehouse uses, with the other half as a taproom open to the public, according to Bonstein.


Renovations to the building will begin in mid to late November, with a summer opening anticipated, said Bonstein.


The taproom will be open to the public from Wednesday to Sunday, with the following hours: Wednesday and Thursday, 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday 3 p.m. to 11 p.m.; Saturday 12 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday 12 p.m. to 9 p.m.


Bonstein anticipates having 10 beers on tap, with a rotating schedule of lagers, IPAs, Belgians, wheat beers, stouts, pale ales, and some "fun experimental stuff." For those who prefer an alternative to beer, there will be cider, wines and spirits.


Bonstein said he has plans for a rotating food truck schedule, as well as other fun events like live music, trivia, movie nights and more. The space will also be available for private party bookings.


"Our plan is for the taproom area to a fun relaxed environment with close ties to the Newtown community," he said.
