Is it too much of an exaggeration to claim that Lancaster County is THE craft beer capital of the Northeast?

Maybe not.

Two county establishments — Bulls Head Public House in Lititz and The Fridge in Lancaster city — are among the 10 Northeast Region finalists in http://www.CraftBeer.com’s 2014 search for the nation’s Great American Beer Bars.

Food Trucks, Beer Bring Crowd To Sly Fox Brewery In Pottstown

POTTSTOWN, PA — The parking lot in front of the Sly Fox Brewery and Tasting Room was transformed into a laid-back party scene Saturday during the Taps, Tunes and Trucks event.

The first ever combination event was the brain child of John Giannopoulis, who teamed up with representatives from the ODDyssey Half Marathon, which organized the preceding 5K race.

“(We) wanted to do a race out at the brewery and we were also talking about having a food truck event so we tied the two events together,” he said. “It’s about beer, food, running and music.”

While relaxing after the run, several teams of two lined up to play a larger-than-life version of beer pong that used trash cans painted red instead of cups and soccer balls instead of ping pong balls.
