Local brewery Round Guys Brewery is celebrating their grand opening and its one year anniversary on March 9.
Round Guys Brewery is celebrating, and they have a lot to celebrate. On March 9, beginning at noon, the Lansdale brewery will celebrate its grand opening and its one-year anniversary with a ribbon cutting and all day events.

However, when they found the space in Lansdale, it allowed the owners to do more than just brew and distribute. He said that they want to be known for their …
