Earth Day

Thursday, April 17, 2014 | Beer News, Distributors, Events, Fun, Local Favorites, Long Trail, Restaurants, Retailers, Spring, Sustainable, Victory

As spring comes into full swing and trees and plants put forth their blooms, we find that it’s a perfect time to really take a look at our planet and all she has to offer; we’d never have the flora needed to make delicious beers without our environment being as it is, and it’s important to take a day out of the year to appreciate all the beauty in the natural world. So celebrate Earth Day (April 22) with some environmentally conscious brews this year, and go find a forest to stroll through, a beach to walk along or simply sit out on your front porch and take in all the awe-inspiring beauty that is Mother Nature.

Long Trail has held the tradition of commitment to maintaining the environment for many years now. Between their spent mash and cow power programs, and their water conservation efforts, they gained Vermont’s Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence in 2009 and continue to do all they can to keep our planet healthy. This Earth Day, certain bars and restaurants will be giving a special pint glass away with the purchase of a Long Trail brew, as well as a seedling, with the goal of planting 10,000 trees in the U.S. You can find distributors here and participating bars here.

Long Trail isn’t the only brewery that’s stepping up to the plate this Earth Day, though.

Victory Brewing, who won the Sustainable Agriculture Business Award earlier this year, is joining forces with the Brandywine Conservancy in a reforestation initiative in East Brandywine Township, planting trees provided by the Pennsylvania Horticulture Society’s TreeVitalize program. Over the last five years, the group has been planting trees throughout the Brandywine Watershed, and they hope to meet the milestone 25,000th tree at this event, which takes place Saturday, April 19th, starting at 9 a.m.

For information or to volunteer, please call Wes Horner at 610.388.8124.

The Pineville Tavern’s building has been around since the 18th century, undergoing many changes of use from mill to general store to hotel. The place is so old, there are even rumors of hauntings. In 1969, it changed owners again and the kitchen and bar were expanded to make room for a full-service restaurant. Now, their entrees include pastas, ribs, burgers, pizza, steak and seafood, and there’s a lot of delicious tavern fare to choose from. In terms of beers, they’ve got all the bases covered with breweries such as Victory and Rogue. And not only is the atmosphere friendly and inviting, but the Tavern also features an extensive takeout menu for when you just want to get home, take your shoes off and enjoy a good meal.

The folks at Boxcar have begun the process of opening their own brewpub in the heart of West Chester. The aim is to provide the community with good beer, fresh local food and adult and kid-friendly entertainment in the form of weekly events, live entertainment on the fully-equipped stage and arcade games. They hope to give the community an environment where they can hold events such as business meetings, parties, or public events.

“The inspiration for the brewpub is rooted in our desire to create a living, breathing space where our passion for beer and the arts can integrate with our community in a meaningful and lasting way,”said Kymberly Robinson, co-owner of Boxcar Brewing Company.

The brewpub, which will be located at 142 E Market st., should be completed by the end of June. Boxcar will provide monthly updates on the progress on their website.
