Visited this new brewery on a recent visit to PA to see family.
The location is great, we sat on a patio area with great view of farmland and forest surrounding the brewery. There is a winery here too. Patio has many table chair combos and there is a table for ordering tastings, pints etc. The brewery is 250 gallons and inside a large red house/barn.
Very nice place to enjoy some pints on a warm summer day. I did wonder what happens in the winter though for the ability to relax and drink some brew.
They have five beers on tap and sell them by the pint, pitcher or growler. They also do a flight for $10 with ~3 oz of each beer. Bring your own growlers or pay a full $7 for theirs to take home some beer.
Staff were very friendly and helpful and answered questions.
The prices for beer are reasonable, that first time growler price is a big hit to the wallet.
The beers are currently a Chocolate brown ale, Hefeweizen, IPA, ESB (ASB), and a seasonal. For august the seasonal was neverending summer saison. The saison was far and away the best beer of the bunch.
The brown ale and hefeweizen were both good and not flawed, but not exceptional either.
The IPA was a nice crisp hoppy beer with a lingering bit and piney aroma. I was a little disappointed with the ASB, while sessionable, it was bland and not very interesting.
There are plans to release a maple porter in October and a pumpkin ale (Flash Gourd'n) in September.
I will swing by every time I am in central PA, probably mostly to try the seasonal options. Not a bad place to visit and BYOF (Food) and enjoy the view and some decent beers.
