Argilla Brewing Co. at Pietro’s Pizza (Newark, DE) Technically our first stop of our Delaware trip was really the last stop of our DC trip. But for convenience sake I’m going to include it in this post. We stopped at Argilla Brewing Co. at Pietro’s Pizza in Newark, DE for some dinner, drinks and to meet up with our friends (and part time guest beerventureres) Nate and Dani. We ordered a couple of pies for the table- ours was the Brewer’s Guild Pie which included chicken, apples, onions, mozzerella and BBQ chipotle sauce. YUM! A little pricey, but a lot of delicious. After a weekend of beer, we decided to split our flight and chose Boogsley’s Pumpkin Ale, Zossimov Imperial Stout, Devil in Nylon Hose Belgian Strong, Sweet Sweetbacks Badass Wheat and Blood Orange Whipped Wit. In a surprising change of pace, we agreed on one beer being the favorite: […]

Delaware and Pennsylvania Beerventures

The problem with traveling on and around any beautiful weekend in the tri-state area is that you’re always met with frustrating levels of traffic. Luckily, various breweries are dotted far enough away from major highways all across the country if you want to dodge the frustration and don’t mind the scenic back roads. Irving Cliff, Here & Now and Buck Hill just so happened to be perfectly in the middle of no-where on the way back home after a short trip upstate. Irving Cliff (Honesdale, PA) The first of two breweries in Honesdale, PA that we stopped at was Irving Cliff. The exterior is a bit misleading because the place looks a bit like a mechanics at a glance but there is now mistaking the huge, well-crafted bar on the inside. It was going to be a bit of a rush day, so we quickly put in an order of […]

The Best Detours are Beer Tours

There is a point in time when a young person realizes that they are no longer as invincible as they once were. For Kait, Melissa and I, day 3 of Philly was that day. As I laid in bed trying to piece together last night by revisiting our excellent time at Eulogy, a strong desire to vomit uncontrollably was the only thing that had come to mind. But we’re still youngish and we held that sh*t in like champs. Our shower game was weak and slow, our breakfast game was practically non-existent and our fridge leftovers sadly didn’t make it back into the car before we left our hotel in a hazy state of mind as headed to the first brewery of the day. Yeah, we’re not done Philly. Round 3 – Fight. Dock Street Brewing Company Now we’ve hit breweries in the ghetto before and during this trip, but […]

All Aboard the Struggle Bus. Philly Day 3

We’re back with our late but better than never recap of our Philly trip! On Day 2 of 3, we finally make it to Philly. On Saturday, we decided to do some of the more touristy things in the morning before the breweries open for the day. It’s good to note that a lot of the Philly breweries are open late which makes marathon beerventuring possible! But anyways, if you’re only interested in beer you may want to skip this section. If not, let’s go! Our first stop of the morning was the Liberty Bell. We debated on whether or not to stop here, but in the end, freedom won again! I am a fan of both history and America so this was a fun stop and we probably should have gone through independence Hall because ya know, this is where America happened. But we pressed on quickly as we […]

Philly Adventures Day 2

Since Andrew moved to Jersey last year we’ve been talking about doing a Philly trip. It’s only a two hour drive and there are so many great breweries in the area. Somehow we never got around to it, until we finally just said this weekend let’s go. So I did my usual map building, route planning, and researching. I asked my favorite facebook beer drinkers, reddit and instagram what we had to visit. Technically, I knew our answer was going to be all the breweries but it’s nice to get other people’s opinions. Because we decided to go kind of last minute all the hotels in City Center were ridiculously expensive so we settled on the Holiday Inn at Cherry Hill to be our base and drive/uber our way from there. (Although looks like Philly and Uber/Lyft are not friends anymore so good timing us!)   Anyways, we’ll split this […]
