Opening Night

After months of planning, construction, and red tape the doors to our first location in the Donecker Artworks building on North State Street in Ephrata opened. Despite serving tastes and filling growlers of only one beer, Hegemony Stout, craft beer fans flocked to try Lancaster county’s first production nano brewery.

January 2013

New Building

We took occupancy and began renovations on our current location on West Main Street in Ephrata. The doors opened in February for growler fills with the goal of an on-site taproom still in the works.

June 2013

First Pint Sales

After over two years of samples and growler fills the first pint sales are made onsite. The grand opening of our full taproom space follows in the next month.

June 2014

Inaugural Bonifest

In celebration of St. Boniface feast day (June 5) the first ever held is Bonifest, a celebration of beer, food trucks, and music.

Fall 2014

Production Upgrades

We upgraded from our 3 barrel brew system to a new 15 barrel Premier Stainless Brew system and commissioned our first canning line in order to increase the production reach of our products.

October 2016

Kitchen Addition

With space freed by removal of the smaller brew system, we added a kitchen to provide our own food service to guests alongside our beer.

May 2024

New ownership

In May of 2024 St Boniface was purchased by Pour Man’s Brewing Company. Pour Man’s goal has been to continue to provide the beers you have known and love from Boniface. The combined production and distribution of the two companies has helped establish the brands even deeper in the central PA area.
