Williamsport Breweries - Part 2
Not to be deterred after visiting my first brewery, I stopped into The Bullfrog Brewery while in Williamsport, PA. I checked their website first this time so I would not be surprised by what I found. Their site gave a glowing account of fine food and gold medals. They weren’t lying.
I tried the Stark Weiss (A German Style Wheat Beer), and the Mud Puppy (A Brown Ale). They were both first rate and I picked up a growler of the Mud Puppy for consumption during Thanksgiving dinner. The guy behind the counter recommended I try the coffee stout. I love stouts but I'm not a lover of coffee anything. He then went into great detail about how they use Sumatran coffee beans and Belgian yeast to brew their stout. So I decided to give it a try. Wow, what flavor! Now I'm a Bullfrog Brewery Coffee Stout lover!
The employees were very knowledgeable and helpful: a huge improvement from my experience at the brewery across town. The restaurant (Jeremiah's) and the Brew Pub were equally packed with regulars enjoying the food and beer.
I plan to make this a regular stop when I’m back in Williamsport on business.
