Aston Abbey Brewing Is Launching a Book Club Event


If you enjoy discussing books as much as downing local brews, you’ll want to check out veteran-owned Aston Abbey Brewing Company’s first Books and Beer event on Aug. 9 from 7-9 p.m.

Self-proclaimed voracious reader and co-owner Sue McKenna came up with the idea while chatting with friends and patrons who are enthusiastic about the idea of blending book discussions with a pint of beer. McKenna “hopes to make the event a monthly gathering and is looking forward to the group compiling a list of books to ignite passionate verbal exchanges,” she says. Beer tie-ins will be offered once a schedule is established.

McKenna’s husband, Chuck, who is also co-owner and head brewer for the Delaware County brewery that opened in 2017, focuses on Belgian-style beers with Abbey-themed names like Anonymous Monk, King George and West In Peace Wit.

The Books and Beer event is free to attend and fellow book-lovers are encouraged to bring their own food or indulge from the on-site food truck.

340 Turner Industrial Way, Aston, (610) 245-2178.
