Samplesode 18: Famished at Fetty Wootz

IMG_1951There is just too much beer in the world to only taste twice a month. In the spirit of more is better the Blind Tiger podcast team has decided to add samplesodes to the podcast lineup.  These mini-episodes will feature only tastings of hopefully unique or exotic beer, often on location to keep your Blind Tiger intake at a more regular interval.

This week with Blind Tiger crew was joined by special guest Emily Landis and traveled to new local BBQ joint Fetty Wootz.

I have long decried Lancaster’s lack of a great BBQ joint that is open normal, consistent hours.  While there are the various BBQ food trucks and caterers like Hess’ and Baron von Schwein (which should not be discounted) and authentic soul food at Brothers and Sistas these locations fall short of being available seven days at a fixed location to satisfy a hankering for BBQ.

So what is Fetty Wootz?  Well it is a side project of Lancaster’s infamous Brickyard restaurant and sports bar.  Fetty Wootz is located inside the Brickyard at 415 N Prince St in downtown Lancaster.  After entering the Brickyard proper make a sharp left turn and escape the hustle and bustle of Lancasters biggest sports bar to find yourself in a quieter corner of the building.  Same taps, same bottles, same wines and liquors but the option of a cornucopia of BBQ beef, pork, and chicken plates.

Give a listen to the good, the bad, the ugly, and the sassy from our evening with more meat than you can shake a stick at.  Hear the opinion as to whether this site is worth your time or worth ignoring.  And check out their writeup in Fig magazine.  The only press I’ve seen so far.

And if your opinion differs let us know.  We’d love to know why you loved the joint or loathed it.  Or just what you thought in general.

Thanks for listening and keep on drinking with beef brisket and spicy carolina sauce.
