Changing of the Guards

The Brewing Palace of West Chester is about to undergo a major changing of the Guards. The men you see here are not just ceremonial guards but also brewers. While upholding the traditions of the past, they also perform duties throughout the industry as professionals and are known as some of the most elite and skilled brewers in the Brewing Army.

Chris Lapierre will bittersweetly resign from his responsibility of guarding the WC kettles with a bash. He will move on to open Iron Hill's 8th location in Maple Shade, New Jersey. (Due to open in July).

Thursday, May 7th at 6 pm... 3 Gay St. West Chester

Come meet the new West Chester Guard, Larry Horwitz. The brewers thought it would be appropriate for you to see what you're in for so they will be putting some of Larry's North Wales stash on...and you can expect to see some of Chris's cellared beers as welll. There will be some appetizers out and prizes awarded.

Come wish them well. I bet you can even get your picture taken with them- just like the do at the Real Buckingham Palace.

  1. Like the palace guards you can in fact get your picture taken with us. It is however significantly easier to get us to crack a smile.
