Breaker Brewing Company

31 January 2009

We've had quite a few questions since we broke news of the new Pico-brewery in the Plains/Wilkes-Barre area a few days ago. First off Pico-brewery is sort of a generic term to designate breweries less than a micro-brewery....typically about 1bbl or so. Breaker Brewing Co plans to brew small batch beer, selling to local beer bars only with no real brick & mortar storefront. As I mentioned a few days ago the beers will be brewed in a home garage in Plains. And yes these guys are serious and seem to have everything in order for a successful launch. Current plans are for a Pale Ale, Vanilla Porter or Stout and a Scotch Ale. And here's the brewery (see photo).

Watching, with interest. I'll be asking for kegs before long. :)

It will be interesting to see how they progress. I've heard no mention of anything but kegs, but I'm not sure if their licensing allows them to sell to the public or not yet. Stay tuned.
