If you're looking for a place with locally-brewed handcrafted beer, PA wine, spirits & guest brews, old school arcade games, and incredible weekend live music, The R’Alehouse in downtown West Chester is the place to be. We are excited for you to pair our handcrafted pints with select shareable plates created by Carlino’s Market or have food delivered from one of the many nearby restaurants.

We provide the food (a rockstar spread), Boxcar beer (all of our best brews), and live music (stellar West Chester talent of course). Food, beverage and entertainment will be provided at Glen Mills picnic grove.
