I get really excited when I’ve finally made it out to a brewery that I’ve been itching to visit. Yeah, you can pick up cans at your distributor, but there’s nothing that beats a draft straight from the tap. 

This past week, I had the pleasure of swinging by Sobel’s Obscure Brewery in Jeanette, PA. With a tap garden and lots of brews on tap, I was so excited to try these beers in person and was not disappointed! 

First off, the location is adorable! Boasting a nice taproom and a beer garden with lots of space, you can’t go wrong with where you choose to sit. Then, of course, the beer! I’m a sucker for citrus in the summer, so the two brews that I sampled were fruity bombs that are perfect for this time of year! 

First on deck, an epic creamsicle ale that is perfect for a hot summer day! Periwinkle’s Dream-Sicle is a vanilla cream ale blended perfectly with orange. The result? A crushable, easily drinkable beer. 5% in ABV and summer in a glass, try this one out! You won’t be disappointed. 

My personal favorite was the second brew that I was able to try, Tangerine Sunshine. I love a pale ale. When done well, it’s crushable with just a slight amount of hops. An unfiltered pale ale, this beer is hopped with Columbus and Amarillo hops and blended with lots of tangerine purée. The result is a 7% beer that is sneaky in ABV but not in flavor. This one is the perfect blend of citrus and hops and was the perfect brew for July 4th when I visited. 

Lastly, my husband tried the Midnight Stout. A 9% dark brew, this one is an excellent example of a stout that is simple, very drinkable for the percentage, and loaded with cacao flavor. Even though it was a hot day, this was a dark brew that was simply too good to pass up! 

Needless to say, I was beyond impressed with the selection at Sobel’s Obscure Brewery. With a variety of styles available on tap and to-go, there’s simply something for everyone! Make the drive out to Jeanette and check Sobel’s out ASAP!
