Nothing combats the muggy heat of August like a pint of cold frothy beer. Today, we continue our exploration into the world of beer with the Lancaster Brewing Company. If you find yourself travelling through Pennsylvania, I strongly suggest stopping into their Harrisburg location for fine dining and exquisite drinking. Lancaster offers a wide selection of ales and lagers, along with many seasonal specials.
Amish Four Grain Pale Ale- A flavorful beer with the perfect blend of sweet, rye, malted wheat, and hops.
Strawberry Wheat Beer- At first,I was a little hesitant about this one, but it is a light and refreshing wheat beer with a hint of fresh strawberries. It is a very tasty concoction.
Milk Stout- Do you like chocolate? Do you like coffee? Do you like dark beer? If so, then this is the best milk stout on the market. It has a bold flavor, one that tastes more like it came from your local barista instead of brewery.
Hop Hog- This is a very hoppy IPA, with a suggestion of citrus.
(Available only on tap at the brewery)
Fest Beer Amber Lager- A sweet, malty, and creamy beer.
Gold Star Pilsner- It starts off as a malty-hoppy blend like a good Pilsner should be, then finishes off with an extra dash of hops.
Litening Lager- At 4.2%, this is a good session beer.
Celtic Rose- An amber ale with a perfect blend of malt and spicy hops.
