My summer weekend camping trips always include a visit to a local brewpub…this is the next in my occasional series of posts about camping trips and brewpub visits.
Camping Trip: Our Memorial Day 2014 camping trip found us at the Gettysburg Battlefield KOA, just outside of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
Brewpub Visit: After a long day touring the Gettysburg Battlefield, we took a break at Battlefield Brew Works.
I ordered the six-beer sampler, which featured:
- Lincoln Lager, a German-style Pilsner (4.6%)
- Red Circle Ale, an American Red Ale (5.2%)
- Peach Wheatfield, a German-style Wheat beer brewed with fresh local peaches (4.5%)
- Fishing Church IPA, a well-balanced session IPA (5.4%)
- Pennsylvania Dutch Style Smoked Porter, an easy-drinking smoked Porter served on Nitrogen (4.8%)
- Bobby E. Lee Double IPA, a strong IPA served on cask (8.5%)
Battlefield Brew Works is located on the site of a Confederate field hospital from the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863 — a worthy inclusion on my tour of historical Gettysburg.
