Great spot in West Reading. Tap list and bottle offerings are constantly changing and unique. Very friendly, knowledgable owners. Also a great location to have a pint, pick up a couple beers to go and visit one of the many BYOB restaurants down the street.

I was a little skeptical at first - when they opened, it was 4 taps for growlers and a fairly limited selection of bottles. I really wanted to like it because it's 5 minutes from my house, but after stopping by in their opening week, I left feeling I wouldn't be back often.
Fast forward a few months, and they really have their stuff together. While the selection is still small (no imports, mostly focused on PA breweries), they've managed to create a great atmosphere for enjoying a beer and picking up some nice locals. They're recently expanded to 10 indoor taps and 4 outdoor taps in the back patio-like area. The draft prices are extremely reasonable ($4 for a 19oz pour of Dock Street Rye IPA?! Yes!), growler prices are good, and bottle prices are fair for the area.
Sure, I'd love for this place to have more non-local bottles available, but for a place focused on the PA beer scene, they're doing a great job. The owners are really nice, and I find myself stopping in for a pint or growler with regularity, even if I don't leave with bottles to-go. Definitely not the shop for walesbro, but if you're in the Reading area and want a good place to have a beer and spend a half hour, I recommend The Barley Mow.
