Weyerbacher Harvest Ale – Plaza Beverage

WeyerbacherHarvest In Mid Sept Weyerbacher announced that their 2009 Harvest Ale had been shipped to NEPA.  After a few weeks passed, and none of our mybeerbuzz members were listing it as a new beer, I started asking around.  Turns out only about 45 cases made it to our area, and after a few weeks of asking (Thanks Charlie), Plaza Beverage was finally able to get a VERY limited quantity.  I’ve yet to taste this years, but I’m hearing it’s real good….and yes the photo is the hatch of my car.

Plaza Beverage – Beer Haul

PlazaBeerHailOct2009 With the arrival of a few new exciting beers, I decided to head up to visit Charlie @ Plaza Beverage and re-supply our beer-basement.  Here’s a little photo of the haul.  From bottom to top we have the Sierra Nevada Wet Hop Harvest Ale, Bells Two-Hearted Ale, Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye, and who could resist our local favorite, Stegmaier Porter in their new packaging.  Charlie has several cases of the Sierra Nevada Wet Hop Harvest that just came in and no, despite previous reports, Troegs Mad Elf has not arrived yet.  Stay tuned here for details on when it hits our area.
