In 2000, the Swashbuckler Brewing Company made its home in the building now known as the Anchor & Mermaid Tavern on the grounds of the Pennsylvani Renaissance Faire, supplying beer to a one tap system at the Wharf with a capacity of 364 barrels for the Faire season. By 2010, production had increased to 1200 barrels, prompting the new SBC Brewsmith Brewery to open in 2013. With the introduction and distribution of Lancaster County Cider, Swashbuckler's Faire-season production of beer and cider has topped 1800 barrels, all the while remaining true to processes of hand-crafting beers using locally grown products.
Located on the grounds of Mount Hope Estate & Winery, home of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, the Swashbuckler Brewing Company produces hand-crafted ales and lagers. In 2013, Swashbuckler Brewing Company answered the demand for increasing supply with a larger touring and production facility with output of 4500 barrels annually, while remaining true to its pains-taking processing of hand-crafting beers using locally grown products.
