Lancaster Brewing Company

Lancaster Brewing CompanyThe blogging has slowed, but not due to a lack of beer adventures. Before I get to a few longer posts, I’ll catch-up with some quick-hitters.

Lancaster Brewing Company is one of my favorite Pennsylvania breweries, so I picked up their variety pack from Total Wine and More in McLean, Virginia. Thumbs-up on the unique packaging, but I probably paid a little extra for the 12-pack dressed as a barn.

The variety pack included:

  • Hop Hog IPA, an impressive IPA that is well-balanced, refreshing, and strong (7.9%). Featured in Session 5 (December 2005) of the Boa Beer Sampling Series, which featured IPAs.
  • Milk Stout, a traditional English sweet stout
  • Amish Four Grain, a sessionable Pale Ale
  • Strawberry Wheat, an American wheat beer, with the subtle taste of strawberries. Light and crisp, and not too fruity.

It looks like Lancaster is joining the craft-beer-in-a-can movement. I just read on their web site that their summer seasonal, the new German-style Kölsch, is available in cans – a perfect summer beer in perfect summer packaging. I think I like craft beer in a can better than a 12 pack dressed as a barn!
