We’ve been fortunate enough to have some great guests join us in the studio for the Friday BeerBuzz. I was really excited to welcome this week’s guest, a) so I finally had the chance to meet this busy brewmaster, and more importantly b) so I finally had a chance to taste his fall seasonal beer. Today we welcomed Damien Malfara from Old Forge Brewing Company in Danville, PA and we sampled Damien’s fall seasonal Smashin’ Pumpkin Ale. Old Forge Brewing Company (OFBC) is relatively new, opening their doors on Dec 5th 2008, and I’m happy to report they have already expanded their capacity to keep up with demand. I also really love the theme of OFBC. Damien and wife Maria highlight craftsmanship in many ways at OFBC. From the locally grown produce to the hand crafted mug rack, mug club mugs, restaurant booths and of course their hand-crafted beers. All in all a unique brewpub and wonderful tribute to craftsmanship.
It was really fun tasting such a great Pumpkin Ale, with the young man that hand crafted this beer and based on the fact that this beer is made with real pumpkins, I think I have some idea where the Smashin’ Pumpkin Ale moniker came from. This is a very tasty beer so be sure to take the ride to Mill St in Danville to check out all of Damien’s brews.
to Damien, John, Nancy, Joe & Bosco for yet another fun Friday.

and a special Thank you to Joe & Nancy for going above and BEYOND the call of duty to produce this week's video. Our camera literally failed during the intro music, but thankfully Nancy had an APP for that on her iPhone. Thanks guys!
