I’ve never heard of Garagista and have certainly never drank it.  But man do I love their advertising campaign.  This sums up the feeling most brewers have about the mania that surrounds those “ungettable” beers.  Good stuff, watch it when you can!

It’s Battleship Fest Time!

One of my favorites.  How often do you get to drink beer on the deck of an historic battleship?  It’s also pretty cool to go to a beer fest that features the beers of just one state.  And there’s been a LOT going on in our state lately.  You’ll get a chance to try some [...]

Saison Wood takes second Place at the Inquirer’s Brewvitational!

Trinity Tripel Release March 16th

Reverend Stowell (or Father Phil as our staff affectionately refers to him) is among our most regular guests here in Maple Shade.  If he and his wife don’t show up for lunch we’re tempted to call the police.  Father Phil got wind of the St James Brown Ale our brewer in Lancaster brewed in honor of his church and thought [...]
