Lovedraftâ€™s Brewing Co.
They havenâ€™t outright specified where the location of the
brewery will be, but it could be either their upcoming West Shore
location, or it could be at their current location in Harrisburg.
If I was a betting man, I would bet on it being the Mechanicsburg /
West Shore location.
Their current location is at
225 N 2nd Street Harrisburg. Its a burger bar / music venue,
and in recent history (pre-COVID but within the past year)
theyâ€™ve ran into a few issues with the Harrisburg area on the
loudness of their music. Their venue has been a wonderful music
scene for the â€˜misfits and outcastsâ€™ for the â€˜freaks and the
geeksâ€™ and for the â€˜fringe aspectsâ€™. Their page lists their
place as: â€œBeer, Burgers, Fries, Music, Nerds, Geeks,
They also have a portable food truck called the JB
Their Harrisburg location is all inclusive, celebrating people
of all diverse backgrounds and cultures and ideas. It is one of the
greater stops in Harrisburg and an area where everyone is welcomed.
So itâ€™s absolutely great to see them getting to expand and to
even have their own brewery and brewing line. Will be something to
keep your eye on and to look forward to. The job opening page says
planned launch date May 2021. (Planned launch date and planned
opening are two different things, and with most things, schedules
can change, especially now with COVID and the pandemic and
everything going on.)
So definitely put this on your calendars and keep an eye on
their sites for more information.
