Columbia, PA sits right on the east bank of the Susquehanna River, in historic Lancaster County and is a quick drive from either York or Lancaster. I checked out Columbia Kettleworks with friends the week between Christmas and New Year’s and really enjoyed it!
Columbia Kettleworks: The Essentials
- 40 North 3rd Street Columbia, PA 17512
- Tues-Sat: 1130-10, Sun 1130-8
The brewery has a great space – there’s a big area in the back for games like cornhole, there’s a pretty extensive menu with pub snacks and sandwiches, and live music was being set up just as we were leaving. Everything you can want from an after work happy hour or weekend beer drinking outing. But what about the beer?
Brews to Choose
I got a flight of four and was able to try some of my buddy’s beers from his flight as well.
- On the hoppy side, the Logging Camp was my favorite. I also enjoyed the Buzzkill, which is an IPA brewed with honey.
- on the dark end of the spectrum, the Chocolate Raspberry porter was decadent and really tasty (though probably not for more than a taster for me).
- Because it was the holiday season, we also had to try their Grinch Feet, an American strong ale. Definitely worth checking out if you get their when it is in season.
There is a lot of great beer in Lancaster county! Where should Brew Coup go next?
