Craft Beer Spotlight: Union Jack’s Inn on the Manatawny
Union Jack’s has been rocking the craft beer scene since flannel and leather first dominated the airwaves! Long before “craft beer” was even a term, Union Jack’s was challenging taste buds at their Glenside, PA location, Olde Glory Pub. Union Jack’s Inn on the Manatawny is no exception. Located aside the Manatawny Creek among the farmlands of southeastern Berks County, Union Jack’s boasts a list of nearly 250 different beers. Housed in a historical site that once saw the musical likes of Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, and Dinah Shore makes it a fitting location for weekly live music. You can catch acoustic sets on Thursdays and concerts on the lawn every Sunday. In the warmer months, they have a large outdoor patio, which will easily turn one beer into many. The restaurant and bar have the warm and inviting feel of an English pub; high back booths, dark wood, and beer swag make it a perfect venue for a few pints and some homemade pub fare. While you’re there, don’t miss out on some of the greatest hot wings in the area, with an incredible selection of 30 different sauces.
It’s only fitting that Neshaminy Creek has a kinship with a location that shares our love of music and beer. If that wasn’t enough, “Manatawny” is Native American for “where we meet to drink,” while “Neshaminy” is Native American for “place where we drink twice.” Union Jack’s Inn on the Manatawny is a true destination for any beer lover, so if you don’t know Union Jack’s, you don’t know jack!
