Restaurant notes: A brewpub starts with ABC

Central Pennsylvania's Appalachian Brewing Company is shooting for end of April or early May to open its first suburban Philly brewpub, which it is setting up in the former Hemingway's in Collegeville Station (Main Street and West Third Avenue in Collegeville).

ABC's Artie Tafoya tells me that the new location will most resemble the company's Gettysburg location, as it will have pitched ceilings and heavy use of timbers.

Throughout the year, ABC offers 20 to 25 different beers, Tafoya said.

At any one time, 12 to 14 beers will be on tap.
