Great American Beer #14

Magic Hat’s Spring dandelion ale, Pistil, is something I look forward to every year. Sad to see the bottom of this case.



Great American Beer #13

A beauty out of Salt Lake City. At 6.8% it’s a perfect school night Belgian. Monkshine from Uinta – an instant classic.


Great American Beer #12

Ah Troegs, voted best brewery in the US, is just down the road in Hershey, PA. Nugget Nectar is just pure gold, pure boozy gold. Wow.


Great American Beer #11

An unexpected surprise. Hawaiian beer is tasty!


Great American Beer #10

Not my cuppa for all sorts of reasons but a firm favorite of Lola. Peanut Butter Chocolate Stout from DuClaw. A rare find!


Great American Beer #9

Troegenator. A double-bock. If you haven’t been to the Troegs brewery in Hershey, Pa, I urge you to go. Amazing beer, fantastic gourmet food. Go, just go.


Great American Beer #8


Wolovers Otter Creek Black IPA. Sooooo tasty.

Great American Beer #7

Found this cheeky little number at the beer shop in Wilkes-Barre. It’s dark, chocolatey and basically to use a word from back home, stonk. If you like Ubu, honk your horn!


Lancaster Brewing Company

Popped into the Lancaster Brewing Company today in Lancaster. They’ve got a range of great natural tasting beers including a Strawberry Wheat. Lunch was also excellent and fairly reasonable with a burger to rival the one up the road at the Appalachian Brewing Company in Harrisburg.

Next it was off to Amish country where there were Shoo Fly Pies and¬†Whoopee¬†Pies to scoff, but that’s another story altogether.
