July 30, 2021 |

We’ve all been there. You go to a bar, try a new beer from a local craft brewery and fall in love. After a quick Google search, you realize this brewery is within driving distance, and pretty soon it becomes your favorite hangout.

So, you find a new place to call home, and hope the cycle doesn’t repeat itself.

This is the story of one brewery, Spring House Brewing Co. in Lancaster, PA, that recognized this all too familiar pattern, and worked hard to rebrand and revitalize itself. And much to this writer’s surprise, it is working. Read More

May 25, 2021 |

As waves crash against the rocky coast and boisterous gulls soar over historic brick buildings and sidewalks, Portland, Maine slowly begins to see the hustle and bustle of summer tourists return.

Well, let’s introduce you to The Drowned Lands and Harvest Kill, a Sour IPA that hits the balance just right. Read More
