With lines extending several blocks during beer release events, Dancing Gnome Owner and Head Brewer, Andrew Witchey, decided it was time to expand. Drawing inspiration from the former Pennsylvania Canal, that had passed through this site almost 200 years ago, the second location of this Sharpsburg Brewery is housed in a re-purposed, steel pre-engineered warehouse, originally manufactured by Butler and located by the river. Working closely with A. Martini & Co and Sulosky Design Group, this multi-phase project now enables Dancing Gnome to produce approximately 10,000 barrels of beer per year. In addition to the brewing area, the taproom, cold room, and outdoor beer garden makes this facility a desirable destination and a wonderful community amenity.
