Suburban Beer Garden Trend Heading to Kennett Square

The Creamery in Kennett Square opens this weekend

The Creamery in Kennett Square opens this weekend

Kennett Square is the next ‘burb getting in on the beer garden game. This Friday, June 3rd, The Creamery pop-up beer garden will open.

The beer garden is located in the completely revamped creamery which had been empty and in disrepair for years. Owner Michael Bontrager collaborated with Philadelphia’s Groundswell Design Group (PHS Pop Up Gardens, Talula’s Garden Spruce Street Harbor Park) to turn the site into “lush, open pop-up space” featuring the beer garden, performance venues, garden courtyards and local art.

The Creamery will be stocked with 16 craft brews on tap, four draft cocktails, wine and local seasonal drinks. It doesn’t sound like anyone will be going thirsty at The Creamery.

Food and drinks from Philly bars, The Institute, Whetstone Tavern and Brauhaus Schmitz will be featured at the beer garden. And every week there will be Food Truck Friday where a rotating roster of food trucks will stop by The Creamery.

And what would any good beer garden be without some live music? The Creamery will host performances from local bands and artists each week.

The Creamery (401 Birch Street in Kennett Square) will be open Thursday to Sunday every weekend until September 30th. It will run from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursdays, 5 p.m. to midnight on Fridays, 2 p.m. to midnight on Saturdays, and noon to 10 p.m. on Sundays.
