The Lancaster Beer Trail

Growing up in NEPA you learn to love Coors, Miller, and PBR (in an unironic manner).  Craft beer wasn’t part of the vocabulary and microbreweries were few and far between.  Regional beer was limited to good old Lion’s Head. Lancaster has a surprising number of small microbreweries and brew pubs.  I say surprising, because while I was always aware of their

New Years Resolutions

I’ll admit to it, I’m one of those weirdos who writes up a list of New Year’s resolutions every year.  This year is no exception except I’ve decided to make a list of new places/experiences I’d like to complete and hope that by publicizing it here, I’ll be forced to comply.   Let me know you
