According to an article in the January 1 Reading Eagle a new brew pub is set to open in West Reading. Chatty Monks Brewing Co. will occupy 610 Penn Avenue, formerly the site of a designer shoe store.

The brewery had initially planned to  open on Evans Avenue in Wyomissing, but zoning regulations forced a change in plans, according the company Facebook page. Instead, Chatty Monks, which already has a loyal following for its craft beers, will open in downtown West Reading sometime in 2014.

Chatty Monks will join an already vibrant restaurant scene in Reading’s western suburb which already includes more than 20 dining establishments along Penn Avenue alone.¬†
