May Challenge: B is for Brewery

Thursday, May 2, 2013

There is nothing like an ice cold beer during a warm Spring/Summer night. The way it quenches your thirst, the hops swirling in your mouth, the crispness – yum.
 
Luckily for me I don’t have to travel too far to experience the greatness of microbreweries because I am surrounded. Here are a view you should check out.

Free Will Brewery, http://freewillbrewing.com/, is located at 410 East Walnut Street in Perkasie. John Stemler, Brewmaster, and Dominic Capece, Manager, founded Free Will Brewing Company in 2010, and opened to the public in January of 2012. I actually just had some Free Will beer when I was eating at McGillins in downtown Philadelphia for my birthday. It was great to see some local guys spreading all the way into the city. Congrats guys!

Round Guys Brewery, http://roundguysbrewery.com, 324 W. Main Street Lansdale: I had the pleasure of interacting with these gentlemen frequently when I was working at The Reporter. From taking pictures of them when they hung their official sign up to sipping on their beer in their shop, this cozy brewery is a great place to try some intriguing flavors.

Prism Brewing Company,  http://prismbeer.com/, is located in an industrial park that you most likely will think you’re lost or think you're going to get murdered but have no fear, you’re at the right spot. Head to 810 Dickerson Road (North Wales mailing address) for some amazing beers – shady blond is my favorite! I even spent my New Year's at Prism two years ago -- it was a blast and their special all you can drink was well worth it!!

While this is only a list of a few breweries in the area, I would like to share two other options to drink lots of other microbrews in one trip. 

For many of you who are local are aware  the Lansdale Beer Festival which has exploded into a craft beer drinkers paradise over the last 4 years. With over 100 brewies, the event is sure to fancy your taste buds, but be aware, get your tickets early bc this is sure to be a sold out event. Head to www.lansdalebeerfest.com for more information

If you cant make the festival, be sure to check out the Craft Beer Bus of Pottstown. This amazing bus which provides booze on the ride, games, prizes and much more giving you transportation to usually 5 breweries within a certain area for an afternoon of drinking. Dont worry about drinking and driving, the bus has you safe!!! To see their tours and where the bus is headed next visit www.craftbeerbus.com. To read more about the bus, read my article I wrote when they stopped through our area.

Cheers friends -- drink responsibly!!
