Victory Brewing Co. is making another move in Chester County.
You might say that business is mushrooming.
It is planning a brewpub in Kennett Square, and will occupy all 8,234 square feet of the bottom floor of a four-story, luxury apartment complex called Magnolia Place. The developer, Kennett Realty, is owned and operated by the Pia Group, which also own Kaolin Mushroom Farms Inc. and South Mill Mushroom Sales.
Victory Brewing's Bill Covaleski and Ron Barchet, who met on a school bus in 1973 and opened the taps in Downingtown in 1996, will equip the place with a five-barrel brew house.
Victory at Magnolia is targeted to open in the second quarter of 2014. The brewery also is finishing construction on its second production brewery in Parkesburg, Pa., expected to be operational this fall, the company said in a press release.
