Pottsville’s Youngest Brewery
Historic Downtown Pottsville’s latest craft beer venture pairs hard coal country roots with innovative beers in a beloved Schuylkill County landmark. Black Rock Brewing Company opened in the spring of 2021 in the old Pottsville YWCA building. The reimagined, 19th century space also features local wines from SpringGate Winery in Harrisburg. Guests can enjoy brewery-fresh Black Rock beers and offerings from nearby Yuengling and Pilger Ruh Brewing. The brewery will also feature a rotating cast of food trucks.
The artfully restored brewpub stays true to the building’s original aesthetic with understated, elegant décor. Guests may enjoy warm weather evenings in the Black Rock Beer Garden, or on the SpringGate Wine Terrace. The beer menu features a rotating lineup of Black Rock staples and experimental brews. Pair favorites like Black Rock Blonde and Caged Canary IPA with their signature stuffed soft pretzels.
And if you’re looking to take a little Black Rock Brewing home with you, grab a growler to go. Or stop in the SpringGate Bottle Shop before you leave.
