Charles “Knute” and Bernadette Mellon are preparing to open Blondes & Brewnettes Brewery, the first alcohol establishment in West Grove since the town went dry in 1940, according to a report from Breweries in PA. 

The brewery will be located at 122 Rose Hill Avenue and is expected to officially open its doors by the end of summer. 

“We need to get the equipment onsite and installed, and we will have a good amount of construction to complete the bar and a few other items,” said Charles. 

The husband and wife, who started brewing beer in November 2020 out of their restaurant, Twelves Grill & Café, plan to make a wide variety of styles, including brown ales and blonde ales, Belgian styles, IPAs, and darker beers. 

Their new, 4,000-square-foot space will have a 20-foot bar and 10 taps carrying the brewery’s beer. 

“The total seating indoors will be around 100, with some seating out back through our garage door,” said Charles. “Outside, we will have some tables and a beer garden for events when the weather is nice.” 

Food — including barbeque, salads, and paninis, among other items — will also be served.
