Lancaster City is Cool

I’m going to make the bold statement that at the moment, Lancaster is 100% the coolest city in Pennsylvania…that no one’s ever heard of. Hear me out.  Whenever I tell people I used to live in Lancaster, the most common reaction still is to ask if I lived by the Amish. Most people are surprised

Weekly Check In- Some Breweries I’d Like to Visit

Much like hikes, books, and things to watch on Netflix, I can’t seem to keep up with all the breweries I’d like to experience. It doesn’t hurt that they’re popping up at rapid pace. There’s currently over 5,300 breweries operating in the United States. That’s insane. To give you some context, in 2012, just five

My Top Recommended Summer Beers, and a Warning About Zima

  I don’t always necessarily agree with seasonal beer drinking.  I will argue anyone who says Guinness isn’t a beach drink, will happily throw back some fruity IPA’s after a XC ski, and have been known to buy a few 4 packs of Susquehanna Brewing Company Toboggan Chocolate Doppelbock (ok, so I used to have to

Weekly Check In: A Visit to Endless Brewing

  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

A Weekend on the Richmond VA Beer Trail

When your Saturday starts with a giant soft pretzel surrounding a mound of kielbasa and cheese, with a nice, tall hefeweizen to wash it down with, you know it’s going to be a solid weekend. I spent a weekend this past April exploring the craft beer scene in Richmond, Virginia (or #RVA, I learned, if

One of the Only PA Beer Bucket Lists That Matters

Over the past year or so, Thrillist has become one of the sites I check daily. It started because it had great travel articles, but what really gave it the boost is the way their food and beer writers are able to exist in a plane that’s almost the exact spot between high and low

A Visit to the Yuengling Brewery

  Think about what things you consider to be inherently Pennsylvanian. For someone born and rasised here, the answers might be biased. For example, I’d always include kielbasa and pierogie on that list, however, there’s plenty of people outside of my small corner of Northeast PA who don’t know what those foods are, and I

A 2015 Recap

Every year I make myself a list of weekend resolutions, and every year I set unrealistic goals that set me up for failure. Last year, I tried to be more realistic, but still set myself two separate posts of over 10 resolutions (some, which came with sub-resolutions). You could see them here and here. Every

A Day on the Finger Lakes Beer Trail

The Finger Lakes is primarily known around these parts as a destination for wine connoisseurs, bachelorette parties, and someplace your parents and their friends take a limo to for the afternoon and come back with an embarrassing buzz. I’d always heard good things, but never had a strong pull to go because, well, wine’s just really

Portland Maine, Day 1

You know what I haven’t done in a long time? Taken an impromptu roadtrip. Being the king of planning and all, I can’t even remember the last time I just packed a bag with no plans, reservations, and just hit the road, so I was pretty pumped this past 4th of July weekend, when my
