Craft beer scene forerunner closes
Owner of The Drafting Room, a restaurant and bar in Uwchlan, will continue to operate nearby Brickside Grille
UWCHLAN » The restaurant that billed itself as “Chester County’s Original Craft Beer Bar” has served its last IPA.
The Drafting Room Taproom and Grille on Route 100 closed Monday after 23 years in business. Owner Andrew Weintraub said the time was right for him to consolidate his two-restaurant operation into one. Weintraub also runs the nearby Brickside Grille in the Eagleview Town Center, which remains open.
“I’ve come to a point in life where it’s time to move on,” Weintraub said Tuesday at The Drafting Room. “It’s time to let someone else do it.”
Weintraub said the business, along with its liquor license, is for sale.
“Let them put their twist on it,” he said of the next owner.
A typewritten note on the restaurant’s front door summed up his feelings on the move:
The Drafting Room Taproom and Grille in Uwchlan closed for good on Monday.
