A Lancaster city brewer is revving up for a big move.
Wacker Brewing Company is hosting a last call party Jan. 26 at its Little Dutch Taproom at 417 W. Grant St. ahead of relocating to a new address. The brewery is moving its taproom to Lancaster Harley-Davidson at 308 Beaver Valley Pike near Willow Valley.
Lancaster Harley-Davidson owner Jack Texter told LancasterOnline the taproom will occupy about a third of a nearly 7,500-square foot warehouse that has a kitchen and is now used for storage.
He said the taproom is anticipated to open in April and the brewery is taking the necessary steps to seek approvals.
According to LancasterOnline, a brewery spokesperson said the brewery will be set up in Lancaster County in a new location that has yet to be announced.
Wacker opened in 2014, but its history dates back to the brewery’s original founding in 1853. Owners Bryan and Carolyn Kepner revived the Wacker brand, which was known as Lancaster’s oldest brewery at the time of its closing in 1953.
