I stopped by one of the other local breweries in the area the night before my chaotic day at Victory last week. Boxcar Brewing is a small brewery located in West Chester Pennsylvania, and they are distributed around Eastern PA and Philadelphia. Brewing straightforward beer, they have three staples: Original Ale, Brown Ale and an India Pale Ale. I chatted with one of the owners, Jason Kohser, for a little while about the beer they brew and the future plans for Boxcar.
Boxcar was just started last year. Since then Jason has been perfecting his brews on a 10 bdl (310 gallons) system by slightly tweaking his recipes every run.
Here is the Boxcar lineup in all its glory.
I got to sample the India Pale Ale while I spoke with Jason. This particular batch of IPA was brewed with a Belgian yeast giving a very unique flavor to the brew. I can't wait to dive into the other brews from their portfolio.
If you are ever in the area and are looking for a local beer to check out, make sure you pay a visit to Boxcar Brewing. They are very nice people making good beer for their community. Make sure you sign up for their email list on their website and get involved on their Facebook page where you can find up to date information on where Boxcar beer is being served.
