Lancaster-based Spring House Brewing Company has expanded to Strasbourg with a new tavern which opened just off the square on Monday.
Located at 8-10 E. Main St., the Spring House Brewing Company Tavern exclusively offers Spring House beer while also offering Pennsylvania-made wine and spirits.
Food is provided by Black Goat Gastropub, which handles the brasserie kitchen at 25 W. King St. Strasbourg’s menu includes wings, nachos and fries as well as burgers, cheesesteaks and a cheese sandwich. pork barbecue.
The building dating from around 1801 once housed a tavern and in modern times has housed a clothing store, florist, gift shop and antique store. It had recently been declared derelict property and was acquired in 2019 by the Lancaster County Redevelopment Authority who also sold it that year to an investor who rehabilitated the building.
Spring House rents space for the restaurant and oversaw renovations that installed a kitchen, added an L-shaped bar with a dozen seats, and created two small dining rooms. There is indoor seating for around 50 people as well as two tables out front. In addition, there are four tables in a patio at the back which will be set up before next spring.
Launched in 2007 in a converted barn in Conestoga, Spring House moved its brewing operations in 2015 to the town of Lancaster where it renovated an old warehouse at 209 Hazel St. for a brewery and restaurant. The Lancaster Town Bar on West King Street opened in 2010.
Spring House is owned by brothers Matt and Greg Keasey. The Keaseys said they have long considered adding a location in Strasbourg and their new location moves them beyond the town of Lancaster while providing them with a location that can attract visitors from the Strasbourg railway to proximity.
