We took the kids snow tubing in Pennsylvania and made plans to stay overnight. I wanted a 12-pack of Pennsylvania beer for the hotel room and I picked up the Tröegs Dozen — a mixed 12-pack from Tröegs Brewing Company. The 12-pack included:
- Pale Ale, an aggressively hopped American style Pale Ale.
- HopBack Amber Ale, a wonderfully hoppy Amber Ale that is Tröegs signature brew.
- Rugged Trail Ale, a classic English Brown Ale.
- Dreamweaver Wheat, an unfiltered flavorful wheat beer.
All of these beers are delicious, as are Tröegs seasonal brews like Mad Elf and Nugget Nectar. I’m a big fan of Tröegs, and really enjoyed our visit to the Harrisburg brewery in February 2007.
We went snow tubing at Whitetail Resort in Mercersburg, PA, just a 90 minute drive from our home in Kensington. After a couple of fun hours snow tubing we drove to Hagerstown, where we shopped at the outlet mall, met the Mummert family for dinner, and stayed at a comfortable SpringHill Suites (February 27).
The fun didn’t stop there — on the way home the next day, we stopped for lunch at Brewers Alley in Frederick, which will be the subject of my next blog post!
