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
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.
