They seek to educate, support and empower families and community members to break societal barriers for those with disabilities.

Perkiomen Valley Brewery
101 Walnut St., Green Lane, PA 18054
(215) 872-6424

The newest MontCo brewery, in the heart of the Perkiomen Valley, has a special mission that goes beyond crafting great beer. The owners have created a local community brewery with something unique –  a mobility and sensory friendly taproom. They describe their family as one with “autism along for the ride,” and they wanted to build something that made life a little easier for everyone.

Not only do they support jobs for individuals who are under-represented in the workforce, but also serve customers who might not feel comfortable in a traditional brewery or bar.  As such, the brewery’s special features include a sensory room, a dual height bar that is accessible to wheelchairs and a unisex family/companion bathroom including an adult-sized changing table.

As well as serving traditional lagers they also craft unique foraged & botanical ales. Check their Facebook page for days and hours.
