Spring House Brewing Company

My weekend camping trips always include a visit to a local brewpub…here’s the next in my occasional series of posts about camping trips and brewpub visits.

Camping Trip: My annual October camping trip found me in Amish Country, near Lancaster, Pennsylvania. This picturesque landscape of rolling hills and farms, where horses and buggies share the roads with cars, is a beer destination. I hadn’t been to the area since I was of legal drinking age, so I was excited to add new breweries and brewpubs to my collection.

Brewpub Visit: The Taproom by Spring House Brewing Company in downtown Lancaster serves all of the great brews produced at the brewery in nearby Conestoga. We stopped in for lunch.

I was impressed with the menu of strong, hoppy and dark brews:

A Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout and an 11% Belgian-style Quad — WOW! I ordered the sampler tray so I could try all 10 breers!

The brews were as delicious as they sound — what an amazing beer menu! The food and service were great too! I loved this cozy and friendly tap house with the cool mural painting.

My favorite beer was The Astounding She-Monster, a Mango IPA. Mangos and IPAs are two of my favorite foods, so I just had to order a separate half-pint of this one.

I carried out a growler of Braaaiins! This “Pumpkin Ale for Zombies” packed a punch at 7.2% ABV. Perfect for the camp site later that night…
