Goodbye August and hopefully goodbye hot, sweaty days. I am so ready to September: cooler weather, scarves and boots, pumpkin beers, and football. Before August comes to a close, here’s the latest beer news for your weekend.
Millworks Brewery is Open
I can’t wait to get to the Millworks tonight and try the brews from their now open brand new brewery! Cheers to more Harrisburg beers. The Millworks currently has 7 offerings available (Oktoberfest, Session Ale, IPA, Saison, DIPA, Farmhouse IPA) which will of course change over time and seasonally. I can’t wait to get both the regular saison and the farmhouse saison in my face. All brews are affordably priced at $5. Congrats Millworks!
Molly Pitcher to Expand
More great news for local beer, Molly Pitcher Brewing is expanding, but staying in Carlisle. They intend to keep the majority of their brewing at the 10 E Main St location they occupy currently, but will be moving the tasting room to 139 W High St along with an expanded menu and commercial kitchen. There may even be outdoor seating in the works for the new space. Can’t wait to check out the new spot, congrats Molly Pitcher!
Victory Announces 2 Fun Brews
Last year Victory launched Sour Monkey, the brett’ed up version of Golden Monkey, and Java Cask, a coffee Russian imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels. I am a huge fan of both. I am ecstatic to hear that there will be a variant of each launching this year. The evolutionary chart shall now read Golden Monkey > Sour Monkey > Sour Monkey Remix. Sour Monkey Remix is Sour Monkey after slumbering in chardonnay barrels. Java Cask Rye is pretty self-explanatory: coffee stout aged in rye barrel. I’m already salivating.
Join us at Susquehanna Art Museum on Wednesday, Sept. 7 for a special Pop-Up Happy Hour.

Wednesday was the third in our series of four Pop-Up Happy Hour events at Strawberry Square.
We had a lovely late afternoon crowd who enjoyed the spoils from a variety of vendors.
Popped Culture returned with a few of their classic flavors.
This month, Zeroday Brewing brought their Episode 8 IPA and best-selling Wit’s End.
Pro tip: We mixed the Wit’s End 50/50 with Little Amps Chai Nitro Iced Tea (which is awesome on its own, too — so refreshing).
MoMo’s BBQ & Grill brought over meatballs and sausage for snacking.
Keystone State Wine & Spirits brought over samples of the Confessions line of vodkas, including plain, peach and blood orange.
Thanks to our great photographer, Bart of Hop Hedz Gear!
We have one more event at Strawberry Square on Sept. 21 — Make sure you’re on the mailing list to find out more.
Thanks to everyone who came out for our Pop-Up Happy Hour at Strawberry Square last night! It was one of the best yet — I’ll have a recap by the weekend. Save the date for the next one — Sept. 21.
Tonight I may be laying low — Thinking maybe netflixing and chilling with the pup. Maybe something else?
Friday night, we’re hosting a live show at the GK Visual office featuring The Cowards Choir. I’ll be tending bar! Meanwhile, Saturday’s a work shoot, and it’s looking like a possible train trip to Lancaster for beer and brunch on Sunday.
What are you doing this weekend?
