Union Barrel Works in Reamstown, PA - Construction Update 8/30/06
A report in from our Lancaster County correspondent (not really, but he's a great beer-loving guy who happens to live in Reamstown), Dennis, describes the progress of the Union Barrel Works in Reamstown, PA. The idea is beer, food, and banquet/event facilities. Funny thing is, it's apparently the new home of brewer Tom Rupp and just a few miles from his early days at Stoudt's in Adamstown. Even funnier still is how Dennis has been bugging me about when I was gonna finally break this news at The Brew Lounge. Well, don't you know it, I check with Lew Bryson to confirm some details and, with our permission, he's got the story up at his site. Now there's the difference between a guy who's on his game and the rest of us :) Seriously, if you want to know a little (or a lot) about beer, even whiskey, you've gotta follow his site and his writings. The man knows his stuff. (Not like that's any secret if you follow anything that remotely resembles beer; check out his books, WHYY, etc.) Stay tuned for more details about Union Barrel Works. So far, November is the anticipated opening month. Dennis will keep us up-to-date and I promise to be more timely in sharing!
