Another brewery is due to open in the greater Central Pennsylvania area (Central PA); this time its Highway Manor and it will be opening up in Camp Hill. This has been a long time work, and they’ve been working hard to get here. Yet again another brewery opening despite / during COVID-19 and the mess that the coronavirus has created this year (2020).
The Highway Manor Brewing Co. will be opening their doors as a taproom this Saturday – September 26th, 2020 – in Camp Hill at 11:00AM. They are located on Gettysburg Road (Camp Hill).
This has been their building that they’ve been brewing out of for years, but is now finally being turned into a taproom and will be opened to the public.
For many, if you are a big sour fan, or lambic, or Belgian, or saison fan, you are fully familiar with the portfolio that Highway Manor has to offer. They’ve been doing many brewfests for years, a highlight of which being their consistent showings and offerings at Lititz Brewfest. I remember one particular year, me and friends were there and had their Sour Stout (yes, you heard that correctly – a SOUR STOUT). Very unique and interesting beer. To see their full portfolio of beers you can check out their website here: Highway Manor’s Portfolio.
For others, you might have become familiar with them due to their statewide shipping that they’ve started during the COVID-19 and quarantine lockdown. They like several others in the state (Levante, Tired Hands, Tattered Flag, The Larimeer, etc.) have adapted, and overcame during the pandemic, creating a delivery system that allowed for them to ship statewide. If you would like to order statewide from them through their “drink from the barrel” – #drinkfromthebarrel – system, you can order here: Highway Manor Statewide Shipping – Ordering – Drink From the Barrel.
Highway Manor is ran by brewery owner and head brewer – Johnnie Compton III. He specializes in saisons, sours, lambics, and Belgians – especially Belgian Farmhouse styles. For those with knowledge of wine, and an appreciation for it, you will definitely enjoy his style and take on beers then as well. The house yeast for Highway Manor has been personally cultivated since the 1840s from Liverpool, Pennsylvania.
As always with us here at The Beer Thrillers we will be definitely checking them out in person hopefully very soon. So be sure to stop by Saturday when they open, starting at 11AM.
