When five guys opened Chatty Monks Brewing Co. in a former shoe store in West Reading a little more than a year ago, their hope was merely that people would buy their beer.
“Your fears are the doors are going to open, and it’s going to be lackluster response, and they’re not going to like our beer,” said Rob Metzger, one of the five partners.
Instead, Metzger said, the response has been overwhelming.
“We have probably done three times the business that we projected, and that’s been problematic from a production standpoint,” he said.
