The folks at Boxcar have begun the process of opening their own brewpub in the heart of West Chester. The aim is to provide the community with good beer, fresh local food and adult and kid-friendly entertainment in the form of weekly events, live entertainment on the fully-equipped stage and arcade games. They hope to give the community an environment where they can hold events such as business meetings, parties, or public events.

“The inspiration for the brewpub is rooted in our desire to create a living, breathing space where our passion for beer and the arts can integrate with our community in a meaningful and lasting way,”said Kymberly Robinson, co-owner of Boxcar Brewing Company.

The brewpub, which will be located at 142 E Market st., should be completed by the end of June. Boxcar will provide monthly updates on the progress on their website.

An Interview With A Brewery: Boxcar Brewing Co.

Tuesday, January 31, 2012 | Boxcar, Local Favorites, Up and Coming

How did Boxcar get started?

Our brewery began as any great idea begins: a late-night conversation with family, friends and beer!  While enjoying some homebrews at the wedding of two of Boxcar’s chief members, we began talk of starting a micro-brewery in Pennsylvania. Within a year, Jason and his now-wife Kristen moved back to the West Chester area, where Jamie and Kymberly had been living, and began a rigorous cycle of brewing, sharing, and drinking 10-gallon batches of beer. Two years later, while enjoying a batch brewed for Jamie and Kymberly’s wedding, all four members got together and thought it was time to start Boxcar Brewing Company.
