General Lafayette Inn to Become Barren Hill

FooBooz reported this week that the General Lafayette Inn in Lafayette Hill has finally found new ownership, the owners of the Devil’s Den and Old Eagle Tavern.

What do we know right now? We know that when it reopens, it will be called Barren Hill (after the original name for the area) and that it will open with 30 taps–6 of them pouring Barren Hill brews with a plan for three of those to be “accessible” (IPA, lager and the like) and three being more “adventurous.” We know that it’ll be a beer-focused joint (of course), but that there will be a menu and that current Devil’s Den chef, Paul Trowbridge, will be manning the burners. And we also know that the beer brewed at Barren Hill will also be sold at Devil’s Den and the Old Eagle Tavern in Manayunk.

According to Foobooz, the new ownership hopes to have it open in this summer.  The venue has been for sale and shuttered since September of 2010.
