On Monday we took our company to a local brewery for a free tour of their facility! Yuengling Brewery is the oldest brewery in America and it is still family owned. I found it interesting that the family cannot inherit the business but that the interested family member has to purchase the business, I guess this protects the business from being neglected. We always take care of what we pay for, usually.
How about that electrical doodad? My photos of the caves, which were created during prohibition for storing and hiding beer did not come out because I rarely photo in the dark. Seems that I need to fiddle about with my camera at night to become proficient at night time photography.
We really enjoyed the tour, the tour guide was quite knowledgeable and kept the tour interesting. Of course at the end each person was permitted to taste two different beers.
I loved the smell of the brewery it was a combination of damp, mold, cold, and beer! Unfortunately, I am unable to sample beers because of all of my arthritis meds but I did sample some birch beer (tasted like cream soda pop!!).
We took the scenic drive to this brewery and the landscape was gorgeous. We made our way through twisty turny roads and I did manage to knit-however I did it gingerly. I was knitting on double pointed needles and I thought one wrong move and I would be impaled by a stray needle. So sobering a thought.
Remember when I mentioned that I would like to "vacation" closer to home. This tour was on the list and now I can cross it off!
