Swashbuckler Beers


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.
