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!

Go Dennis...Go Dennis...

Um I guess I shouldn't be concerned that Lew only mentioned Bryan and Dennis! ;-) It's not like I had anything to do with that post. Maybe someday I'll be as famous as you guys. Really it doesn't matter. I don't care. Honestly...(cut to scene from The Jerk)

"Navin: Well I'm gonna to go then! And I don't need any of this! I don't need this stuff, (he pushes all of the letters off the desk), and I don't need you. I don't need anything except this (he picks up the ashtray) and that's it and that's the only thing I need, is this. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray. And this paddle game, the ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need. And this remote control. The ashtray, the paddle game and the remote control, and that's all I need. And these matches. The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control and the paddle ball. And this lamp. The ashtray, this paddle game and the remote control and the lamp and that's all I need. And that's all I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one - I need this! The paddle game, and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches, for sure. Well what are you looking at? What do you think I am, some kind of a jerk or something? And this! And that's all I need. The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, this magazine and the chair.
