From Barn to Brewery
THE STORY OF STABLE 12 BREWING COMPANY
Stable 12 Brewing Company has a modest beginning, with three best friends deciding to adopt a new hobby after college, focusing on something they all love: beer. Quickly outgrowing the kitchen they started in, they commandeered a vacant barn at the family horse farm on which they grew up and began brewing there. It was from this barn that Stable 12 Brewing Company was born and first opened its doors in May 2015.
Fast forward to today, Stable 12 is now a destination for craft beer lovers in our beloved town of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. The ambiance is casual, familiar, and inviting. With 10 rotating taps, our beer is top quality while also offering a variety of styles. To ensure inclusivity, we offer other delicious libations such as wine, hard cider, and hard seltzer made by other local PA businesses. As we have grown throughout the years, we’ve gained a reputation for not only delicious beer, but for food as well! With a fully loaded kitchen and fresh food prepped every day, we are sure there is something for everyone to enjoy at Stable 12.
Not from Phoenixville? No problem. We are distributed throughout the entire eastern half of the State of Pennsylvania – stretching from Philadelphia, all the way towards Centre county, and even up north in the Pocono region. We also ship our beer to residents of PA, VA, and Washington D.C. through “Pony Express.”
THE STABLE 12 TEAM
While at Penn State, Richard was part of the Equestrian Team and a member of Pi Lambda Phi fraternity. After graduation Richard went home and quickly developed a passion for brewing beer, and this passion evolved into what is now known as Stable 12 Brewing Company. Rick, as he's known to most of the regulars, looks forward to continuing to brew beer with longtime friends and bringing some awesome, local brews to Phoenixville and beyond.

At Penn State University, he joined Pi Lambda Phi fraternity, and held the position of Marshall and Treasurer. Chris met his wife, Kelly, at Penn State. They were married in August 2013. Rick and Chris kept in touch throughout college and brewing started as a collective hobby. A usable extra kitchen on Rick’s farm provided the perfect space for this small-scale operation. As their passion for brewing (and drinking) quality craft beer strengthened and positive feedback from happy beer drinkers poured in, the Stable 12 brand really began to evolve. Cheers!
