The phenomenon of craft beer has taken the adult bev­er­age in­dus­try by storm. In many ways more like an art form than mere food sci­ence, the craft beer move­ment has show­ered con­sumers with a di­verse menu of beers ap­peal­ing to all tastes and pref­er­ences. From ales to stouts to lagers and be­yond, the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind each of­fer­ing, as well as the art­work on the la­bel, are often as un­usual and col­or­ful as the brews them­selves.

On Satur­day, April 7, a va­ri­ety of craft beers from more than 30 brew­eries will be rep­re­sented at the 5th an­nual Art of the Brew craft beer and wine tast­ing event held at the Ham­burg Field House. This unique event in­cludes re­gional fa­vorites like Sau­cony Creek, Lan­caster, Yuengling, and Troegs, plus many oth­ers from across the state and be­yond.

Yuengling will be tap­ping their Golden Pil­sner, its first new year-round beer in 17 years. The beer is a tra­di­tional Ger­man style pil­sner with a 4.7% al­co­hol con­tent, and is brewed with Ger­man no­ble hops, in­clud­ing Haller­tau and Saaz hops.

Ham­burg’s own 1787 Brew­ing Com­pany will in­tro­duce their Black Bridge Amer­i­can Stout and Fern Sholly, an Amer­i­can IPA. This sam­pling of brews rep­re­sents some of what 1787 will be of­fer­ing their cus­tomers when the mi­cro­brew­ery opens in down­town Ham­burg. The brew­ery will be Ham­burg’s first, and af­ter a year of ma­jor ren­o­va­tions to the for­mer Miller’s 5 and 10 store, the brew­ery is plan­ning to open in May of this year.

If you are a craft beer afi­cionado and ap­pre­ci­ate the sub­tle nu­ance and creative ge­nius that goes into de­sign­ing and brew­ing these unique bev­er­ages then you will not want to miss this event. The doors open at 1:30 p.m.; tast­ing is from 2 to 5 p.m.

Your ad­mis­sion ticket in­cludes all tast­ings, a meal, a sou­venir glass (for tasters only) and live mu­sic. Des­ig­nated driv­ers can en­joy the meal and en­ter­tain­ment for $10. Park­ing is free. Tick­ets are for sale in ad­vance through eventbrite.com (search for Art of the Brew, Ham­burg), or by phone at 610-562-3106. Tick­ets for sale at the door also.

The event is hosted by Our Town Foun­da­tion, Ham­burg’s Non-profit Com­mu­nity Re­vi­tal­iza­tion Cor­po­ra­tion with as­sis­tance from Wind­sor Dis­tribut­ing of Ham­burg.
