Twelve78 Brewing Company To Open May 17th In Phoenixville

Phoenixville is about to welcome another brewery to Bridge Street with the arrival of Twelve78 Brewing Company at 35 Bridge Street.

The brewery, owned by Steve and Kara Rogacki, local Phoenixville residents, is set to open on May 17th, 2024, and you can read our initial preview of the brewery here.

Twelve78 Brewing Company made a splash at our inaugural Pennsylvania Homebrew Invitational, garnering rave reviews for their beer. They began about 3 years ago and had great success at festivals. As for who’s involved, Steve and his wife Kara are running the show. They’ve been married for almost 24 years and have two sons, Jake and Aidan, who helped them launch the brewery and taproom.

Twelve78 will offer a blend of classic styles with modern techniques like Thiolized Lagers, Pale Ales, and IPAs. The Sour smoothie ale line has gained popularity, blending sour ale bases with various fruit purees, ice cream, marshmallows, and more. They’ll be brewing on a 3-vessel 3.5 BBL brewhouse with b both 3.5 and 7BBL fermenters.

These brews will be enjoyed through 16 taps in a renovated 5,000-square-foot space with three large roll-up doors. The goal is to bring an outdoor feel inside, creating a Biergarten atmosphere regardless of the weather. There won’t be a kitchen, but they will have a permanent food truck stationed on their property. Twelve78 also offers a variety of 4-packs to-go, including mixed 4-packs. Events that are in the works are Tuesday night Bingo and Thursday Trivia.

Steve’s interest in brewing started nearly 30 years ago in college during an advanced Chemistry class where brewing beer was part of the curriculum for those 21 and over. He brewed his first batch in the early 90s and was hooked. Over the years, despite not being able to drink due to medical reasons, Rogacki continued brewing, finding joy in others enjoying his beers. Brewing became a passion and an art form.

“We are family-owned and operated from right here in Phoenixville. We relocated here from Northern New Jersey 11 years ago and have loved this town ever since. It was very important to us when we searched for a home for the brewery to be part of a place we could partner with and be a part of the community. We plan on partnering with the Boro to host fundraisers and become supporters of the historical society bringing that culture into our brewery and taproom. We’re starting with 8 of our beers on tap. Additionally, we’ve teamed up with Revivalist Spirits and A Casual Beverage to craft 2 unique cocktails on tap and to collaborate on creating Sour smoothies and seltzer slushies,” said Steve Rogacki.
