Black Forest Brewery

301 West Main Street
Ephrata, PA 17522


About Us:
The idea of opening a craft brewery began when Bob with his sons, Ryan, Ross and Reese were backpacking on the Black Forest Trail in Pennsylvania. What a great idea! We can brew our own beer, open a brewery and enjoy some good old sessions with family, friends and new acquaintances. Why not? Bob and Ryan began in typical home brewer fashion . . with a Mr. Beer Kit in the family kitchen! Instantly addicted to the challenges, process and results they moved to extract brewing and then all grain! Flashing back on Denise's kitchen filled with steaming kettles, test tubes, an old speckled enamelware boiling pot and a turkey burner, it is hard to believe Black Forest Brewery has become a reality, a bonafide Brewery in Lancaster, PA
