I’ve been wanting to visit the Endless Brewing up in Susquehanna County for some time now. My brother and dad went a year ago and liked it, and though I’m reticent to fully trust Yelp reviews, this one got no badmouthing. The problem was always that it’s in the absolute middle of nowhere. It was perfect for this past Saturday. I had nothing planned for the afternoon, and by lunch had accomplished everything I wanted. I conned my cousin into taking a ride with me, so a little after 3:00, we set off deep into the bowels of Susquehanna County.
Endless Brewing has a Montrose, PA address, but is actually about 20 minutes north, again, smack dab in the middle of nowhere. It’s about 10 miles off of 81, but just be warned that those 10 miles are winding country roads you’ll be on for about twenty minutes. Saturday turned out to be sunny and warm, and for the second time in a few weeks, I found myself remembering how pretty the area I grew up in is.
This is a real micro-brewery in every sense of the word. There are signs on the road telling you to be on the lookout, which is good, because if not, you may just think it’s a well-kept garage. It also helped that the afternoon we were there, the parking lot was pretty active. We arrived at a good time though, as all the other patrons were out in the yard, so we didn’t have to wait too long to get a few flights, and then went out to the yard ourselves, which had a picnic table, some Adirondack chairs, and a stone wall you could sit at. The beer was all excellent, and though they don’t have food, they do have small snacks for purchase (the porter paired beautifully with bbq potato chips). I particularly liked their pale ale, saison, and the terrifyingly smooth double IPA. I checked out their beer list, and was impressed by how many styles they try for such a small operation. They must have a pretty loyal following as well, because one of the taps was already dry, and all their cans were sold out. It was an enjoyable way to spend the afternoon, and if you’re in the area, and don’t mind a little bit of a ride, worth checking out.
Binghamton’s actually not that far, and has a pretty cool little brewery scene themselves, and Scranton is about an hour’s drive, if you’d want to combine this with something else beer related.
