Two Rivers Brewing Company Close to Opening

After successfully meeting its Kickstarter campaign goal and bringing in a total of $21,764 from 144 backers to pay for a new tap system for the bar at the end of last month, Two Rivers Brewing Company is edging ever closer to opening day.

Co-owners Troy Reynard, Kathy Reynard, Judy Nelson and Brad Nelson were joined Sunday at their soon-to-open restaurant and brew pub in the former Mount Vernon Alehouse on the corner of Northampton and Sixth streets with other staff members and about 10 volunteers for an intensive day of painting and other construction-related finishing tasks.
While an actual opening date hasn't been firmed up, Troy Reynard said Sunday that the City of Easton has granted all the permits the new pub needs to open on the first floor, and that all that remains is for some small details on that level to be completed and for the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to give its final approval on the establishment's liquor license. 

He estimated it will be another couple of weeks, but said it will definitely be before Christmas.

Work on the second floor dining rooms is proceding well, with drywall installed. It's next on the list for completion, but that will come after the brew pub open, Troy Reynard said.

The kitchen is nearly ready to go, with only some lighting and drop ceiling tiles left to be installed.

"We're nearly there," said Judy Nelson. "I can't believe it. It's been a long road. I can't wait."
