You won't be disappointed!


You made it sound good and it's close to home... and just got back with two cases :beer: They're going through the alphabet for their brewers reserve series. If they're a hit, they keep it and rename it. Just today released HOTEL. Sounds production but if you can, get some - it's a really good Porter.

Blithering Idiot is very smooth for a Barleywine. Insanity, Blithering Idiot aged in bourbon barrels, is even better. Their Double Simcoe is a very fine double IPA. Weyerbacher is probably one of the better PA micros and that's saying something considering how many fine micro brewers there are in PA.

I picked up four Double Simcoe bottles in my mix. It was my dinner drink tonight and it's still on my taste buds an hour later. That's one tastey and fragrant hop :) I had the Blithering Idiot while on the tour and could'nt pay attention to it as much as I did tasting the others. Right now they're aging Blithering Idiot and Old Heathen in the burbon casks now. Will be marketed in Februrary as Insanity and Herasay respectively. I'm going back, should be empty by then. :D

Boy am I jealous! Must be great living so close to a fine micro brewery. When I was in PA I was about 30 minutes from Stoudt's and 45-50 minutes from Weyerbacher and Victory. There used to be three micros in Reading, Pretzel City, Neversink, and Camelot. Camelot was mediocre to bad and the others were pretty decent but didn't have the staying power. Now I live about 75 minutes from Ommegang near Cooperstown, NY. Too far for a pick up. :(

Enjoy those brews. I'm going to have a He-Brew Jewbulation at 13% for a night cap. :up: :beer:

I just tried Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron. I've had some good beers and in my humble opinion this is the best beer I have ever had. At 12% it takes extreme disapline to have only one being as good as it is. Last swig for the night. :cry:

Hey walpe3, the day we went to Weyerbacher they released Hotel, one of their Brewer's Select Series. I didn't know any thing about this series of small lots, just that it was one of my faves that day. Between me an my son, we bought a case of it. It's been absolutely one of my favorites and then I find out they only bottles 60 cases. We bought 2% pf their stock! I sure hope they stay with this one.

Wish I could get it around here. I prefer the porter to the black and tan. Just found a source of Lord Chesterfield Ale, my favorite summer time beer. Guess there is a silver lining to every cloud. :beer:

Looks like I won't be seeing Hotel around here if they only bottled 60 cases. :cry2: In my opinion, Weyerbacher is one of the best PA microbrewers and that's saying something.

I'm lucky to often see it stocked around here. Easy to drink ... and often too. :) Started showing up here after B&T did, thankfully.

I'm really glad that there are so many tasty brews showing up. My son was telling me how there were thousands of breweries scattered around the country in the early days. They were either swallowed up by or out competed by mass producing corporate brews. Micros have making a big come back and can compete again. Hope it lasts.

My brother turned me on to Founder's Breakfast Stout. After a couple of those, if you don't have hair on your chest, It won't matter. Brewed with chocolate and coffee. It's the best of all three worlds. :lol:

The Victory Yakima Twighlight is a nice one...but to put some hair on your chest, id recomend Voodoo Black Magik. imperial stout, oak aged, clocks in around 15% ABV

Load Chesterfiled Ale is Yuengling best brew in my opinion Now if you can get some of there Porter do the Orginal
Half & Half get a tall frosty mug or a pilsner Glass pour half porter then the other half of Chesterfield in it you will enjoy
the Orginal Yuengling Half & Half which Yuengling never brewed but the local bar's / Customers created many years ago .
