Gettysburg PA, There is absolutely nothing like a well poured craft beer, a glass of vino out of a recently corked bottle, or the bubbles of a sparkling cider striking your palate the right way.
Beverage producers all through the outlying countryside of Adams County, Pennsylvania, realize the impression that a well crafted drink can create.
Destination Gettysburg welcomes you to enjoy a taste of the Adams County region through a unique journey to highlight the countryside’s distinctive craft beverage industry.
The Adams County Pour Tour brings together wineries, breweries, distilleries and cideries for an astonishing culinary trail – designed to create one unforgettable experience through the bold flavors of this destination.
Introduced as a way to bring together a wide variety of craft beverage experiences into one adventure, Destination Gettysburg is launching the Adams County Pour Tour on May 11.
Rooted in the heart of Pennsylvania’s Fruit Belt, Adams County is home to more than 20,000 acres of apple trees, making it an ideal location for growing not only 100 varieties of apples, but peaches, grapes, hops and more. Tucked among the farm markets, orchards and vineyards is a growing number of wineries, cideries, breweries and distilleries.
“Each of these craft beverage makers is special, but bringing them together into one trail will create a more memorable experience for travelers and encourage more visitors to explore the Gettysburg countryside,” said Norris Flowers, President of Destination Gettysburg. “The Pour Tour is a great way to highlight a variety of craft beverages – ranging from wines, to ciders, beer and spirits – all found right here in Adams County, Pa.”
