Sign of the Horse is Expanding – Taking over the old Miscreation Brewery

Sign of the Horse Brewery

Yesterday on Facebook – Sign of the Horse Brewery announced that they would be expanding – into the old Miscreation Brewing Company’s building.

It wasn’t long ago (just on January 10th, 2021) that Miscreation Brewing announced their closure. You can see our article on that here: Miscreation Brewing Company is Closing its Doors. Many comments from the local people online were wondering what would come of the brewery building, as its a fantastic location, already has a kitchen / restaurant, and has the equipment and space for a brewery. And just a week later, we already have our answer! Sign of the Horse Brewery will be moving on in.

Miscreation Brewing Company had used the building and brewed out of there for nearly six years. The Hanover location sits on 6 Center Square, Hanover PA 17331. The main street of the town. With ample street parking, it is a wonderful location.

A New Beginning For the Old Building

Its great to see the building get a new beginning and a new chapter to its life. And its also great to see the restaurant / building stay in the ‘craft beer family’.

Untappd lists Sign of the Horse Brewery as a micro brewery from Hanover PA. It has 58 unique beers with 4K+ check ins and has a global average rating of 3.74 (as of 1.18.21). Their current brewery is located on 979 York Street, Hanover PA 17331. It is a brewery, American restaurant, and bar. They have a 13 tap bar with 12 of their own taps and one guest cider tap.

The current goal and game plan for the Hanover Downtown location – the old Miscreation Brewery – is to have it opened on March 31st, 2021. From their press release, they will be honoring all of the old and outstanding gift cards for Miscreation Brewery as well as hosting a “guest tap celebration” for Miscreation Brewing from January 21st through January 23rd (Thursday – Saturday).

Sign of the Horse Brewery Expansion

Sign of the Horse Brewery is expanding!

We are excited to announce Sign of the Horse Brewery is expanding our operations. We have purchased Miscreation Brewing Co and will be adding a second location. Before talking about what is going to happen going forward, We would like to spend a moment looking back.

This is a bittersweet time for us. Although we are excited about what the future may hold for us, we are saddened by the loss of Miscreation Brewing Co. Miscreation has been a part of the downtown community for several years. They deserve a lot of credit for the revitalization of downtown. They are a well-respected business and will be missed. We are humbled that they chose to sell their business to us. We do not take the trust they have put in us, to ensure we maintain what they have worked so hard to establish in the community, lightly. We pledge to work everyday to represent them and the community in a way that Hanover can be proud of and build on what they have started.

We have an internal goal of opening the downtown location March 31st. Details will be coming soon as to what that will look like. In the meantime, we are going to have a “Miscreation” tap takeover at our Sign of the Horse Brewery location January 21st-23rd. We will have several of Miscreation’s customer favorites on tap. During those days we will honor all Miscreation’s outstanding gift cards. This will be the final opportunity to utilize their gift cards. Continue to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for exciting updates as we go through this process.

Sign of the Horse Brewery Facebook Page

Be sure to follow their social media pages (and website) to stay up to date on the Sign of the Horse Brewery and their expansion. This is an exciting time as their brewery is growing and expanding. They have been getting rave reviews from many in the lower Central PA area online; saying that they are pumping out some phenomenal beers.

Its a tough time for breweries to be growing and expanding, but there are several that have announced expansion and growth plans – places like Levity, Little Fish, etc. (You can see links to articles about them down below.) Its also been a tough time with several breweries announcing their closures (the obvious Micreation Brewing, Spigot Brewing, River Bend Hop Farm and Brewery, and several others – you can see links to articles about them below as well.)

We wish the best in the future endeavors of the Miscreation Brewing family, as well as wish all the best for the growth and continuation and expansion of the Sign of the Horse Brewery and look forward to seeing what they have in store for the Hanover area and for the craft beer community as a whole!
