Trust us . . . We're going to be seeing more of this - a lot more!
Sue Gleiter, writing for The Patriot-News, recently detailed Central Pennsylvania's Susquehanna Ale Trail. It's a brilliant idea and something that we predict will soon sweep the country.
She explains the Ale Trail's origin this way:
The ale trail concept borrows from the numerous wine trails that crisscross Pennsylvania, including the Mason-Dixon Wine Trail which encompasses 14 wineries and runs through Dauphin and York counties as well as parts of Maryland. Now, beer lovers have reason to raise a pint — the Susquehanna Ale Trail has been designed to promote the local craft beer movement.
Participants include some our favorite central Pennsylvania breweries, including Troegs, Stoudts and Lancaster Brewing companies, as well as Good Dog Taproom, Mudhook Brewing Company and Mr. Steve's Homebrew & Wine Supply.
This soon to launch trail was created by The York County Convention & Visitors Bureau who saw an opportunity to highlight the region's fine craft brewers and to attract craft beer tourism to the area!
The official launch won't happen until the weekends of April 13th – 15th and April 20th – 22nd with the Ale Trail's inaugural Passport event. A limited number of passports will be available for sale for $10 at the locations along the trail, as well as on the website. The passports will allow participants to enjoy special tours, tastings and promotions at all of the locations on the trail.
