Troubles End Brewing Brings Big City Flair To Montgomery County Suburbs

While Philadelphia is only a short ride from its surrounding suburbs, it can sometimes feel like the communities are lightyears away. Bustling streets, high rises, and a dense population consume the city of brotherly love. Whereas you will find less foot traffic and sometimes a slower pace of life in the surrounding suburbs.

The way of life is not the only difference between the two areas. Restaurants, taverns, and breweries can also feel worlds apart despite being so close. But don’t tell that to the folks at Troubles End Brewing located in Collegeville.

The brewery, which is backed by brothers Dave and Nick Bellenzeni and brewer Zachary Svoboda, opened in March of 2020. And in the short time has already established itself as a must-visit for anyone in the area looking for not just a fantastic craft beer visit, but a well-rounded dining experience.

Fueling the brand are key members of the team, each with a very diverse background.

One of those individuals is Casey Parker, who has become synonymous with the Philadelphia restaurant landscape. Many may widely recognize him as one of the owners of the Pistola’s bar-restaurants. Who has brought the vision he has perfected in the city and expanded for all suburbians to enjoy.

Troubles End offers one of the more unique locations you will find in Montgomery County. Their industrialized brewery is complete with reclaimed wood, steel walls, and an exposed brew system. The main taproom features a stage where live music can be enjoyed on just about any weekend day.

The uniqueness of their offerings is what you will find behind the bar. Unlike many other local breweries, Troubles End boasts a full restaurant license. What this means is they are able to offer guests beer, wine, and spirits from all over the world. As we will get into a bit later, the brewery can stand toe to toe with any local beer producer in the area, but you will also find a wide variety of libations.

With over 25 taps and a cooler full of canned beer from breweries all over the country, the options seem endless at Troubles End. Out of state beer from breweries such as Lawson’s Finest, Russian River, Allagash, Aslin, and many more are offered on draft or to go.

The variety does not end at the liquid. The brewery’s kitchen is spearheaded by chef Kris Serviss, who most notably is the former owner of Culture on the Circle in Philadelphia. Chef Serviss brings his big-city experience to offer a robust menu that boasts a wide variety of ever-changing mouth-watering dishes. Braised Short Ribs, Smoked Brisket Reuben, and Seared Tuna Tacos are just a few of the items guests will find. With over 30 items on the menu, it is almost hard to find something you wouldn’t enjoy at any visit.

But what would a craft brewery be, without the beer of course. The beer at Trouble’s End is brewed in a 7 bbl brewhouse lead by Zach Svoboda. If the name sounds familiar to locals, it should come as no surprise. Svoboda was previously the lead brewer at Forest And Main Brewing. Who has brought the same passion and skill to crafting all styles of beer, specifically clear and well-made lagers that the Ambler brewery has built a reputation off of.
