This Friday, I’ll be heading down to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, along with my fellow beercrafters Bruce and Pat. The goal: visit some of those great Southeastern PA breweries I’ve been hearing about, and some of whose beer appears regularly in my fridge. I’m pretty jazzed on hitting Stoudt’s. There’s a lot of positive buzz about their beers, which are unavailable here in Upstate New York. The Victory Brewing Company also figures highly on my list. Of course, any recommendations from readers would be most welcome.
It’s tempting to try to hit Monk’s in Philly as well, but that seems a bit ambitious for a weekend road trip. So we’ll stick to the Lancaster region and enjoy the rustic rusticness, old-style folkways, and annoying furniture-hunting tourists from NYC.
