Appalachian Brewing Company Beer Release Schedule 2014

menu1While I may not be a huge fan of Appalachian Brewing Company I know that their popularity within the central Pennsylvania region is a force not to be trifled with.  I am most familiar with their Harrisburg site due to having seen many great events at their upstairs Abbey bar.  It is a great space, especially after recent renovations and affords a great opportunity to take in a live show with good beer and food.

Appalachian Brewing Company is eyeing 2014 as another banner year with a plethora of new beers, menu times, events, and a seventh location to be opened in Mechanicsburg they are aiming to become the regional craft beer entity in central Pennsylvania.

Appalachian Brewing Company or ABC as we lovingly call it released details yesterday of some of the great beer related news they are planning for this new year.  They are looking to upgrade a few seasonal offerings to become year-round beer.  They are looking to create some interesting small batch beers.  They are also attempting to create an extremely wide variety of seasonal beers for fans of the brewery to try.

They released a full beer release calendar so fans can mark their calendars.

You have to appreciate a brewery with the ambition to have a new seasonal offering each month.  Fans should make sure they mark down new release days to get their favorites before they are out.  Nothing is sadder than missing out on an experimental or limited release beer because you didn’t know when they were to be release.

I’m really only a fan of the Hoppy Trails IPA but am curious to try a few of these releases as well.  Anyone else intrigued by any of these beers?
