South County Brewing Co. held an open house and ribbon-cutting April 1 to celebrate the grand opening of its flagship brewery at 170 Crossway Drive in York Township.

Joining the ownership team of Sam and Kellee Terroso and JR and Jen Heaps were state and local leaders, construction partners and representatives from Traditions Bank, the York County Economic Alliance and the Lancaster Economic Development Co.

South County expects to begin distilling operations there in the next several months. The brewery’s original location, at 104 Mill St., Fawn Grove, will also remain open.

A release said the new brewery was developed “to create an experience where the unique setting, culinary offerings and beverage options including a PA-based cocktail/wine menu could match the reputation of high-quality beer that has created a loyal fan following over the past decade.” The menu includes fresh, locally sourced American pub fare as well as artisan baked goods made daily in a Woodstone fire-deck oven.

The highlight of the 13-acre campus is a 28,000-square-foot building erected with Douglas fir timber framing. Inside is a production area, casual dining hall, loft, and event/performance space known as “The Virgil Room.”

Outside is a timber-framed patio with bar, stone fireplace and (future) firepits. That space will open next month.

The Crossway Drive brewery opens its doors to the public for lunch, dinner and full bar service April 13.
