Wendy & Denny Browne, Melissa & Tom Beers
Meet River Bend Hop Farm and Brewery's Co-Owners, Tom & Melissa Beers along with Denny & Wendy Browne. With their combined love of beer, food & entertaining they shared a vision to open a family friendly establishment that would serve Newport, surrounding communities & beyond. After converting an old barn into a brewery & taproom, the two couples were able to live out their dream. They opened their doors on September 22, 2017, making River Bend Hop Farm and Brewery Perry County's Oldest Brewery.
Situated among the hills outside of historic Newport, Pennsylvania,
River Bend Hop Farm and Brewery is housed in a century-old barn located at the bend of the Juniata River.
A LITTLE ABOUT US & THE FARM
November 6, 2020
As many of you know, in today's climate with Covid-19, it has become more and more difficult to continue to keep River Bend's doors open with the regulations we must follow.
After 3 wonderful years of bringing you carefully cultivated craft beer to drink, local musicians to listen to and beautiful views to enjoy, we are closing our doors. Know that this decision has been a difficult one.
To all that made River Bend Hop Farm and Brewery a destination, thank you for navigating the road less traveled and supporting us at Perry County's Oldest (and 1st) Brewery. We will be forever grateful to our patrons for allowing us to serve you!
Thank You Again,
Tom & Melissa Beers
