The wilderness is my favorite place. When given the chance, I’d rather spend a day hiking, biking or kayaking instead of being indoors. Then, I would end the day with a few craft brews outside. Stick City Brewing, in Mars, PA, combines two of my favorite things – the outdoors and great beer!
Located north of the city, Stick City has been crushing out great beers for several years now. The brewery itself is one of the coolest spaces I have been at, seamlessly blending the outdoors with a craft brewery. They’re also boasting an excellent roundup of brews at the moment, including more canned to-go opportunities!
They’ve reopened at the required 25% capacity and are hosting food trucks each night to make your meal out the best possible! Currently, looking at their beer list, here’s what interests me the most:
Big Handsome Boy (IPA 6.6%): An amplified version of their Handsome boy Pale Ale, this beer includes increased amounts of nelson sauvin hops and boosted hoppy flavors make this beer one to try. With white grape and kumquat scents, this is an IPA to dream about.
Cabotsquatch (Brown Ale 5.8%): Brown ales are an unsung hero of the beer family. Seriously, they need more love. With locally grown hops and a caramelly-chocolatey taste, make this your transition beer into these (hopefully) cooler months.
Lenticular Galaxy (DIPA 8.3%): If you read my articles, you know I love a higher ABV DIPA. Yum. With galaxy hops, this beer tastes like hoppy passion fruit, mango and stone fruit. This great DIPA is available in cans right now as well!
The best part of this story? Stick City is here to meet your beer needs. Feel comfortable hanging out? Grab a seat, your mask, and order some food to match the governor’s orders. They’ve got a great food truck lineup. More a to-go person? They’ve got some great stuff in cans to help satisfy your beer cravings.
Open Thursday-Sunday, this brewery is on my list for next week’s beer run. Support local and travel to the sticks on your next beer journey!
