BREWERIES

Better when you get it from the source

 

Hershey

The new facility has two brewhouses, one for daily production and another smaller pilot brew system for research and development beers. The brewhouse is in the middle of the Tasting Room, and a large public tour path cuts through the heart of the facility pulling back the curtain for all to see. The Scratch Beer Series continues to thrive as more than 200 different brews have been created featuring both local and exotic ingredients to feed the collective muse. The reason we like to use local ingredients is because they are easily accessible and we can see the ingredients at their source.

Braddovck

Brew Gentlemen aims to create soft, balanced and elegant beers and meaningful experiences while helping revitalize the historic steel town of Braddock, Pennsylvania.
When we started the company back in college, we were just a couple of drunk, idealistic students fed up with school and the track it put us on for life. We knew one thing back then that has stuck with us and helped shape every decision we’ve made: to share the experience of beer.

Selinsgrove

SGB 'pub' opened in late 1996 with the idea of steering clear of production brewing & staying community focused.
We started in 1996 with a tiny 3bbl system. The whole operation was squeezed into a 9 by 13 foot room in the basement. 
In August of 2004 we started production in the garage. We currently have a direct fired 10hl system, our kettle was custom made in western Pa. & our mash tun was made in Canada.

Pittsburgh

East End Brewing is Pittsburgh's home for Fresh Local Beer since 2004!  We're a Brewpub and Production Brewery distributing kegs, cans, and even a few BIG bottles throughout Western Pennsylvania.
We  offer Pints and Taster flights. And we also have Big Bottles, Cans, Growlers, and Crowlers our our beers to go. At the Brewery we also offer Kegs, or you can come take a Brewery Tour.

Ardmore

Our beers are equally inspired by the farmhouse brewers of France and Belgium and the pioneering, heavy handed, brewers of America. 
We value local over imported, small batches over mass production, and striking a successful balance between giving back to our community and personal profit. Localization guides everything we do, from sourcing raw ingredients and materials, to employing area talent.

Easton

Weyerbacher Brewing was founded in 1995 in a livery stable located in downtown Easton, Pennsylvania. Eventually outgrowing that small space, we made the move to the 30,000 square foot facility that we still call home today.
Since the beginning, we have established a reputation for making big, full-flavored, high quality brews. While predominantly known for Belgian-style brews including Merry Monks and QUAD, we have an extensive barrel aging program which produces fan favorites including Insanity and Riserva. In recent years, we’ve dipped our toes into IPAs and other lower ABV styles with great success.
Experimenting with different ingredients and brewing techniques, our brewers continue to stretch their creative minds and develop interesting and mind blowing beers that will satisfy your taste for the extraordinary.

Enola

What's not to love? Great food, great beer, and a family-friendly atmosphere. We're proud of what we've built, and we're happy to be recoginized as a world class craft beer desitination and an affordable, consistently delicious restaurant. 

Williamsport

Bullfrog Brewery is an award-winning, independent craft microbrewery, brewpub, eatery, and live music venue. Born of fortuitous circumstance and ambitious aspiration, we opened in August of 1996 with a committed 'focal on local' philosophy.

Meadville

The Employee Owners of Voodoo Brewing Co. have taken our brewing experiences and quirky personalities and wrapped it up into a line of beers oriented around what we feel are fun, flavorful, and thought-provoking. We wish you enjoy our beers as much as we do brewing them. Cheers!

Pittsburgh

We’re constantly brewing, both our year-round favorites as well as special one-off beers that you’ll only be able to try at the brewery. There might be a lot of science behind this brewing business, but our brewers keep as much art in their craft as possible, and the proof is in the beer.
At Mindful Brewing we take commitment seriously. Our commitment to you the consumer of our beers is that we will always use local ingredients whenever possible, and that we will strive to make every batch of beer live up to not only your standards, but ours as well.

Cherry Springs State Park is nearly as remote and wild today as it was two centuries ago.
Named for the large stands of black cherry trees originally found in the area, the 82-acre state park is surrounded by the 262,000-acre Susquehannock State Forest. The Susquehannock Trail passes nearby and offers 85 miles of backpacking and hiking.
Night sky enthusiasts flock to the park for its dark skies which are famous for great views of the Milky Way, planets, and hard-to-see astronomical objects and phenomena.

Often referred to as the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania and the Pine Creek Gorge, the PA Canyon area stretches for over 45 miles with depths of nearly 1500 feet. Its dynamic topography creates many scenic wonders, including steep canyon walls and waterfalls.

 The PA Grand Canyon is part of the Tioga State Forest, beginning just south of Ansonia, PA, near Wellsboro. One of the most popular attractions to the canyon is the Pine Creek Rail Trail, a converted railroad bed that travels along the Pine Creek Gorge at the floor of the canyon.

Lewisburg

The Susquehanna River flows from upstate New York state to the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. The North Branch begins as the outlet of Otsego Lake in Cooperstown, New York. At approximately 444 mi long, it is the longest river on the American east coast and the 16th longest in the United States. The broad, shallow waters also make the Susquehanna the longest, non-commercially navigable river in the country.
The Susquehanna River’s two branches merge in the Susquehanna River Valley

Hummelstown

If the walls could talk they would tell us about the first inhabitants, the Native Americans, and how they used the caverns. Based on facts gained from the history of Native Americans, they most likely used the caverns for living quarters and storage. The constant 52 degree temperature provided a warm dwelling place. Many various tribes used, traveled, or migrated, through the area and knew about the caverns. The Swatara Creek outside the entrance allowed many people to find and use it. The first recorded tribe in this area was the Susquehannocks, who were decimated by disease and warfare by 1760. Notable other tribes also used the caverns, and it is stated than many villages were built along the Swatara Creek. Numerous relics showing their existence in this area were found in fields across the creek from the entrance and on the farm upon which the caverns are located.

Taste world class dry wines in our quaint little California style tasting room or in our romantic cellar setting as we provide you with a unique, up close and personal experience with the winemakers and our friendly, knowledgeable staff.

Stroudsburg

It all started with a trip to the Finger Lakes region of New York. There, we fell in love with grape growing and wine making.
We decided to try it on our own here in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. So, we planted six varieties of grapes on our driveway’s split rail fence. When those 70 vines flourished, we cleared about four-acres of our six-acre property to plant a vineyard.

Saylorsburg

At Blue Ridge Winery you’ll enjoy 360 degree views of the vineyards, mountains, and a beautiful Christmas tree farm off in the valley. The tasting room quietly sits overlooking the sprawling vineyards. Take in the view with a glass of wine out on the wrap around deck.  Crafting the finest wines from dry Bordeaux varietals to sweet American hybrids. We love to create masterful pieces of artwork with every bottle.

Hershey

Cullari Vineyards and Winery is a small boutique bottler and producer that specializes in both traditional dry and sweet red, white and pink wines, and also some unusual and uniquely crafted grape and fruit wine varieties that are only available at our tasting rooms. The vast majority of our wines are produced in very small quantities, which allow us to be very creative and very precise. Of course, because of the small quantities, these often sell out quickly, so if you try it and like it, BUY IT! We currently sell over 25,000 bottles of wine a year, and our prices are among the lowest of any Pennsylvania winery. We are located in Hershey, Pennsylvania, in the beautiful rolling hills between Lancaster and Harrisburg.

Saylorsburg

After meeting his wife Mary and moving to the Poconos, Dominic Sorrenti started Sorrenti’s Cherry Valley Vineyards in 1981. Among one of the first to attempt growing grapes in a climate where others deemed it impossible, and making wines of fruit and the local vitis lambrusca grapes, Sorrenti set the bar for future winemakers and wineries in the area. Since then, his son Nicolas has studied both at the vineyard and at UC Davis in California, perfecting his skills as winemaker. He has refined the taste and elegance of the wines at Cherry Valley Vineyards and has won over one hundred awards as a result. He will continue to shape the future of the winery along with his siblings, who carry on the family tradition.
