This very interesting Pennsylvania Dutch brewery/winery was a popular gathering spot on a very hot (105 degrees F) Saturday in July in Intercourse, Pennsylvania. The wine tasting area downstairs in this large and comfortable barn-like building was very crowded when we arrived, so we headed upstairs to a bar and sitting area. They had 5 of their own beers on tap, and my son-in-law and I sampled four of them. The best was a chocolate blackberry stout, but we also liked their gold kolsch lager. Their standard stout was also good but we didn't care for their amber as much. They also had an IPA but we didn't try that. We purchased a $10 bottle of Niagara wine (a sweet white dessert wine) and had that later ... very nice.
The setting is lovely, and everything is very artsy. Many patrons were enjoying their wine with a nice basket of cheese and crackers. We bought some very pretty branded glassware at a reasonable price. I would have loved to take home a growler of the blackberry stout, but $40 for a filled growler seemed a bit steep even for such excellent beer.
We will definitely be back to Rumspringa (a word signifying the time when Amish youth are allowed to sow their wild oats before being asked to make a decision to willingly commit to their faith) next time we visit!
