J.J. Ratigan Brewing Company
J.J. Ratigan Brewing Company is a craft brewery in the heart of Pottstown, Pennsylvania, where old world charm meets new world beer.
J.J. Ratigan Brewing Company was the second brewery to open in the heart of downtown Pottstown in 2019. An exciting transformation is well underway in the Post-Industrial town of Pottstown. The brewery officially opened to the public on Monday, December 9, 2019.
Ironically, the first ‘Soft Opening’ was on Repeal Day, December 5th — the day in 1933 the 21st Amendment was ratified officially ending Prohibition.
The building itself, Ellis Mills, was built in 1838 and has a tremendous amount of rich history and at one point was the mecca of the downtown during the prospering times of the 1800s and early 1900s!
J.J. Ratigan is the Great Great Uncle of one of our owners. He ran a successful beer & whiskey bottling company in Philadelphia in the early 1900s. Unfortunately, when Prohibition came to Pennsylvania in 1919 his business was shutdown. In honor of his legacy we put him back in business 100 years later on Repeal Day! Cheers!
The brewery is open every day for lunch and dinner. Hours are Sunday thru Thurday from 11 AM – 10 PM; Friday and Saturday from 11 AM – 12 AM.
