One step closer!We're going to the chapel. 🎶
Celebrating our first big step!
Our offer was accepted!

And here it is the chapel in Green Lane across from the firehouse.

Lots of things that still have to fall in place, but for right now...
WE CELEBRATE!

(A little ironic that we're celebrating with wine. But, it is red. It's kind of in keeping with the fact that our offer on a church was accepted on a Sunday. And it The Dreaming Tree wine which sums up how we feel right now.)

Thank you for all the support, prayers, and good vibes sent! 💕 We are humbled and very, very appreciative. 💕

I feel very privileged that Maggie Whiet - Autism Love: Mosaics & Brewing​ gave me a preview from an amazing new company that is about to launch called Perkiomen Valley Brewery. This craft Imperial IPA was brewed by a young man with autism and his parents. I can't wait for them to get their brewery up and running because this was a fantastic IPA! Let's all push Maggie and her family to move as quickly as possible so we all can enjoy their true talents. ... See MoreSee Less

love it....... I need that beer at the shop.... We need a beer tasting night...

Very cool! I will have to let my son know who loves craft beers!

Is this in the Collegeville area? Would love to help spread the word if it is in my neck of the woods!

Jenn Casper- maybe this can be added to the WPH IPA menu??

Awesome 👏

We've just made a facebook page if anyone would like to follow along as we go through all the trials and tribulations of getting our nano-brewery going. :) www.facebook.com/perkiomenvalleybrewery/

Number of adults with special needs requiring services has doubled in the last 17 years - it will increase 7 times in the next 17 years - how will the government fund this increase?
