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.
