It’s still Harrisburg Beer Week!

Tierney Sara hbgbeerweek vip

Tonight I’m hitting up the “Bikes & Beers” event (I like to mix my workouts with my beer sometimes), and not sure what after … but maybe celebrating at home the rest of the night while Andy and Jimi watch the Pens.

On Friday, the gang is headed to the PA Craft Beer Party at HMAC, then most of us are hitting the Highway Manor sours dance party because yum.

Saturday is LBBF, and as of posting there are **3** tickets left we are SOLD OUT! It looks as though we will certainly sell out in advance, which means there won’t be any at-the-door sales (gotta keep it “Little,” ya’ll).

And … call me crazy, but Sunday, we’re going to Pittsburgh to see my sister, nephew, mom and Andrew McCutcheon, J-Hay, Marte Part-ay and Cervelli and the rest of the Pittsburgh Pirates. We’re staying over and hitting up a lunch spot for my mom’s birthday, then I guess I’ll return here and try to piece together post-Beer Week life.


What are you doing this weekend?


Snitz Creek Brewery expansion and new collaboration

It’s Harrisburg Beer Week, and what better time to announce the expansion of one of our favorite local breweries.

Snitz Creek to open new Palmyra tasting room


Lebanon’s Snitz Creek Brewery announced yesterday that they will open a new tasting room in the Flight Path Business Park and In the Net Sports Complex in Palmyra.

If all goes well, Snitz Creek plans to open by the first week in June. The Snitz Creek Tasting Room will be open weekends, serving from eight taps, plus growlers, crowlers and bottles for sale.

Food-wise, it’ll be casual fare from Deraco’s Subs and other snacks, plus food trucks in the evenings (and possibly daytime) to enjoy among TVs and arcade games inside the Tasting Room.

Snitz Creek’s Palmyra location will be open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

Snitz Creek to brew “Miner’s Pub Porter” for local restaurant

SNITZ miner's pub

Continuing its commitment to local, Snitz Creek Brewery has partnered with The Miner’s Pub Restaurant (located in the Iron Valley Complex that includes Iron Valley Golf and Iron Valley Turbing) for a custom brew to serve as the house beer at Miner’s Pub.

Miner’s Pub Porter is described as a “smooth and easy drinking beer with roasted malts and hints of dark chocolate and coffee.”

The recipe was based off of an original porter recipe steeped in local lore (you can find it at Miner’s Pub to read). Snitz Creek Head Brewer Ryan Moncarz said, “the color and slight coffee notes will trick any nosey foreman suspicious of what’s in a hardworking miner’s Thermos.”

Local artisan Anthony Becker designed Miner’s Pub Porter’s unique tap handle, made from the top of of a pickaxe.

Miner’s Pub Porter is on tap now at Miner’s Pub during regular business hours. Growler fills are available.


The Post-Race Blues

You know how it is.

You have had a goal race on your calendar forever. You count down the months, then the weeks, then the days, and it finally arrives. And, then suddenly, it’s over. All those weeks of hard work for this one effort, now what?

Ah, the post-race blues. I’ve had them all week, especially as people asked me what’s next after Boston. I literally have zero races on my calendar, so I don’t know what’s next. I thoroughly enjoy marathon training. Sure, the idea of 20-milers can be overwhelming, but when all is said and done, it’s pretty awesome that you can train your body to go that distance. But I respect that personally, my body can’t handle running back-to-back marathons, so I am done with marathon training until the fall, at least. And that means …

I have a bit of the post-race blues. Since the end of December, I’ve been training for Boston. Every weekend run distance was planned, each run had a purpose — getting me to the starting and finish lines in Boston. And now I feel sort of lost. I also have terrible race envy, which I know is ridiculous. Despite the fact that I just ran a marathon, I find myself jealous of other runners crossing off their goal races. “Maybe I should have signed up for that 5K,” I’d think while tapping like on Instagram. You know, despite the fact that walking down the stairs was a bit of a process merely two days ago.

While it is nice to just run, and not worry about how many miles I should be running and what pace I should be running, I do miss having a focus. On those tough runs, I often visualize my goal race, and how it will feel to cross the finish line. It’s nice to have a goal to work towards. While I am sure I will jump in a few smaller and shorter races, it’s the marathon distance I truly love.

But I’ll save that for the fall.

Until then, I’ll still be out there, training plan or not. Because I don’t need a bib or a chip time to remind me why I run.
