We always love having a local brewer join us to sample some of their latest creations. There’s something special about sampling a beer with it’s brewer, and I always gain some great insight into the beer itself.
Today we welcomed Ben Schoenfeld from Benny Brew Co back to our studio. Ben joined us last July to sample the very first two beer he released to the public, Hopenstein and Wit, so I thought it would be a great idea to have Ben back to not only share another brew or two with us, but also to talk about how his first year in the brewing business has gone.
In honor of Memorial Day and the beginning of summer, we chose to sample Benny Brew Co Summer Ale. This is a light easy drinking Kolsch-style brew and a classic example of how great a summer beer can be. As if that wasn’t enough fun, we also sampled Ben’s Amber Lager. This too is a great easy-drinking beer, but with a heartier body and slightly darker amber color.
While Summer Ale is a draft & growler-only product, Amber Lager can be found at Krugel’s Georgetown Deli & Beer as well as some of our other local beer shops…and of course at Marty’s Blue Room in Nanticoke. Two great beers to kick off summer, so be sure to sample them for yourself.
to Ben (enjoy your cruise), Nancy, John, Joe, & Bosco for yet another fun Friday.
