Why Oh Why can't Wilkes-Barre/Scranton have a Micro-brewery?!?

09 April 2008

Consider this the kick off blog for the campaign to have a micro-brewery/brew-pub in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. You'll find as this campaign progresses that the lack of a local micro makes me crazy. We have the beer crowd, we have the real-estate, we even have the talent...but alas no micro. Why? Was it the demise of Black Rock (for non-beer-related reasons), or is it something else? Today I present to you two pieces of evidence. Exhibit A is the 2007 Craft Beer Industry Statistics. READ THIS and tell me what Wilkes-Barre is missing? These micros are popping up and thriving everywhere! For Exhibit B (and the end of today's rant) I offer up Williamsport. TWO Micros now live in Williamsport, and yet we have none. If you're not crying already I suggest you CLICK HERE, CLICK HERE, or even CLICK HERE. I'll pause while you finish sobbing over our loss of Terry....I'll end today's rant with a plea...Please Bullfrog, please Weyerebacher, please Troegs...please open a brew-pub in NEPA!

OK local beer lovers...Please click on the comments link below and tell me I'm not alone here....
