Run by Dan Shar and Bob Bagonis, this new local brewing company offers more than a dozen artisanal beers made on-site in their 15-barrel facility.

West Chester’s first microbrewery with on-site brewing and canning operations is now up and running. Wrong Crowd Beer’s 5,000-square-foot pub and 15-barrel facility has a second-story mezzanine that overlooks the beer-making operation. The look is industrial, with poured concrete floors, a full bar, bench and bar seating, and picnic tables outside. “It took about a year to pull this location together from the beginning,” says Dan Shaw, who co-owns Wrong Crowd with fellow brewer Bob Bagonis. “But we know West Chester is a craft-beer-loving community, and we have faith that our product will help quench that thirst.”

Four different kinds of beers from Wrong Crowd Beer stacked together.

The pub offers more than a dozen options, including its Sunderbier IPA, two oatmeal stouts, a ruby-colored Pick ’Em All Day blueberry kettle sour, the hazy Drink Deep session IPA, and The Borough pilsner. The $4 flights sure make choosing easier. Local spirits and wine are available, and gluten-challenged guests will find two Big Hill ciders and a Baba’s Brew kombucha.

The kitchen features artisan pizzas (upside-down, Hawaiian, margherita, caprese and standard favorites), plus pilsner-brined roasted wings, lump-crab nachos, and soups from West Chester’s La Baguette Magique. Four-packs and crowlers are available to go, and you can bring your own to fill. Look for Wrong Crowd brews locally at Side Bar & Restaurant, Slow Hand and Jitters.
