The boy and I took the Saturday tour of the brewery hosted by Ed Stoudt. He is a character. We enjoyed him thoroughly, but I could see how some people might find him a bit much to handle. Those are the people that are no fun.
Ed really loves what he does - and you can tell he is passionate about his work. The man is 72 years old and still gives (FREE!) tours of the brewery he owns. I'm sure he could hire someone to do the tours for him - but he loves what he does, and what he's built!
After the tour, we had some beers (of course!) and burgers at the Black Angus Pub. There we found Ed - with an apron on, shucking oysters at the raw bar - the man loves his work!
The burgers we had were absolutely delicious. Spot on. We joked that the cows were probably from right in the back yard.
Regular sized beers (even the Imperial Oatmeal Stout) are all under $5. Anyone from the City, who drinks good beer, knows that is a good price! We also split a flight, which was only like $7.50, and came with a good amount of brew.
We mixed a 6 for $9 (again, !!) and bought a couple of pint glasses. Everyone who worked there was great, we had excellent service. Some of the patrons are the worst (who drinks a martini at a brewery and sends back fish & chips because it's made with cod!?) but, I suppose those types live in all the McMansions popping up throughout Lancaster County these days...
