The long weekend’s finally arrived, and we’re celebrating with another Rogue Speakeasy. Pop over to our Facebook page and tell us what you’ll be drinking as you head into a winter weekend. What are we drinking? So nice of you to ask. We’re drinking 16 Mile.
16 Mile Brewing Company in the heart of Delaware isn’t your typical local brewery. After operating for just a few, short years, they have gained a reputation for having strong ties to their community and brewing clean, fantastic beers with tried-and-true flavor profiles… Okay, so maybe it is a typical local brewery, but that doesn’t stop 16 Mile from being downright awesome.
The founders, Brett McCrea and Chad Campbell, bring the local flavor of Georgetown, Delaware to their brewery and its beers. The name 16 Mile refers to the secluded town being “16 miles from anywhere” back in days when America was just becoming America, and the names of each of their ales pay tribute to a certain prized aspect of the historic area. The Old Court Ale, named for the original courthouse building that served the county, and the Responders Ale, named for the (mostly) volunteer fire departments that serve Delaware, are examples of 16 Mile’s dedication to celebrating their local heritage and community. If you’re lucky enough to live within the distribution area of 16 Mile Brewing Company (which includes Maryland, New Jersey, Central Pennsylvania, and of course its home state of Delaware), this is one brewery worth checking out.
(By the way, we’ve got new ebooks from Michael Hogan coming along Tuesday. So even when the long weekend’s done and gone, you’ll still have something to look forward to.)
