Havertown Brick and Brew Debuts New Location Just as Indoor Dining Ban Lifts

David Bjorkgren

Havertown enthusiastically greeted a new Brick and Brew restaurant location at 31 E. Eagle Road just as the state lifted its restrictions Jan. 4 on indoor dining, reports Trang Do for phialdelphia.cbslocal.com.

”We’ve had the phones ringing off the hook as you can hear now, making reservations, people have been coming in just for little tours of the restaurant,” said Brick and Brew restaurant manager Kelsey Jackson.

Brick and Brew’s new move from Darby Road to a larger space on Eagle Road put it into a building with a bit of history.

For many years, back to 1999 or so, it was the Oakmont National Pub, serving up craft beers and tantilizing pub food.

Before that, it was the Iron Gate, a more traditional local tavern.

Before that, it was a bank.                       

The pandemic put Brick and Brew’s planned move on hold even as an extensive rehabilitation of the Eagle Road building was getting started.

The community kept Brick and Brew going with takeout and outdoor dining as it awaited the move to Eagle Road.

Despite the new digs, COVID restrictions still apply. There’s no bar seating allowed and distancing and mask rules apply.
