Barley Creek Brewing Company

Once again, there is nothing better than having a nice beer at the end of a long day of skiing. While I was at Camelback Ski Resort (Tannersville, PA), I stopped by a local brewery, Barley Creek Brewing Company. The wait for a table was about an hour, but I can assure you, it was well worth it. Barley Creek has 10 of their original beers on tap. I was so overwhelmed by the choices, that I decided to go with their sampler, which included: Cliffhanger Light Ale, a very light Pilsner; Navigator Golden Ale, slightly stronger ale; Expedition Strong Ale, an English strong ale; Antler Brown Ale, sweet, but mildly hoppy; Rescue IPA, full of intense hop flavor; and Chocolate Porter, smooth, sweet chocolate!

Tasting their beers and deciding on my favorite

My favorite ones were the Navigator Golden Ale  and Wanderlust Chocolate Porter. The Navigator had a crisp flavor and went perfect with my  pulled pork sandwich. I was shocked that I could like something so light. The waitress said they serve this beer colder than most, which is why I think this beer would be better in the summer. As for the Chocolate Porter, I thought I was in heaven (I have a sweet tooth!). I didn’t feel the need to have dessert. Their porter was smooth and creamy. In fact, they use Hershey syrup in addition to chocolate.

Overall, I had a great experience. Yes, it was completely packed and crazy, but once you were seated, the service was fast and the food was cooked to perfection. Next time I stop by, I’ll be sure to go at 12:30 p.m. when they have a tour with free tastings.
