Have you driven by 17 Limekiln Pike, and noticed the Glenside Ale House sign and coming soon banner? Alfio’s Italian Restaurant was there for many years and later Gracie’s occupied the space. This summer Round Guys Brewing Company is bringing their new venture to Glenside featuring a new menu, craft beer and spirits. The Pub at Round Guys Brewing Company opened in Lansdale in 2012, and is located at 324 W. Main Street.
The owners of Round Guys Bill McGeeney, John Hartman and Scott Rudich won local and regional awards for their locally crafted, hop-flavored ales, Saison and sours. They opened a joint venture with Backyard Beans Coffee Company to include their live entertainment venue, The Underground in April of 2017. Round Guys was named the Lansdale Business of the Month in July of 2017.
The Glenside Ale House will open in July or August, and will be quite different from the Pub at Round House Brewing Co. in Lansdale. The Glenside Ale House will be a full-service restaurant and bar serving Mexican and barbecue fare, dubbed “Mexicue.”
The bar will exclusively serve spirits that are distilled in Pennsylvania, including gin and vodka from Boardroom Spirits, local bourbons and wines. The Ale House will feature Round House Brewing Co.‘s award winning locally crafted beer, along with a newly created Glenside Pail Ale. They also have plans to create a Glenside only Lager/Pilsner.
The Glenside Ale House will not be brewed on location, but that may change in the future. “The Glenside Ale House will be open until no later than midnight in order to be respectful to the neighborhood, and nothing good happens at a bar after midnight,” said Scott Rudich, co-owner of Round Guys Brewing Company. Rudich went on to say, “we will offer a Mug Club that will be the best deal in town, so stay tuned for details.”
On Saturday, June 9th there will be a Pop-Up, selling four packs of beer and a food tasting in the parking lot of Glenside Ale House at 17 Limekiln Pike from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Stay tuned for more events before they officially open, including a tasting event on July 4th.
