For the Beer Lover

While the Adams County Pour Tour includes craft beverages of every variety – wine, beer, cider and spirits – we wanted to create an itinerary for those of you who especially appreciate an ice-cold craft brew.

Day 1

With this itinerary, you'll stop at our local breweries while enjoying some of Gettysburg’s other recreational activities along the way! If you’re an early riser, start your day with a round of golf at one of Gettysburg’s golf courses. Enjoy a beer on the course before your Adams County Pour Tour journey begins or wait until you’re first stop for that cold brew. Head to Thirsty Farmer Brew Works to collect your first stamp after you try one of their refreshing hand-crafted brews. If you worked up an appetite, you can enjoy a farm-to-table meal from their menu.

Then, head downtown to Tattered Flag Tap Room - Gettysburg located on Steinwehr Avenue. This veteran owned and operated tap room works hard to give back to the community and produces amazing craft beer and spirits. Earn two more stamps at this location. Also in the beer and spirits business, and conveniently located right down the street you’ll find Appalachian Brewing Company – Battlefield. They offer a great view of Soldiers’ National Cemetery . After enjoying a beer in their beer garden, head across the street to the cemetery for a taste of history.

Fourscore Beer Co. is the town’s newest brewery opening in summer of 2019. Just a few minutes away, you can sample original craft beer and order from their locally sourced menu. And round up your day with Swashbuckler Beers from Mount Hope Winery at Gettysburg, located right in Lincoln Square. Although wine is in their name, Mount Hope Estate produces wine, cider, beer, spirits, cider and mead! Have your pick.

Day 2

Before you begin drinking, hop on a horse and learn about the historic events that took place in Gettysburg with a tour by a Licensed Battlefield Guide. These tours are perfect for those looking to add a little bit of adventure to their visit! Then, hop back on the Adams County Pour Tour with a visit to Battlefield Brew Works/Spirits of Gettysburg Distillery. This historic farm was a Confederate Field Hospital during the Battle of Gettysburg.

Next stop: Appalachian Brewing Company – Gateway. Grab a burger and a beer for the perfect lunch combo. They now produce spirits too! And last, but certainly not least, we recommend a visit to Center Square Brewing just a short drive east of Gettysburg in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania. Center Square’s one-of-a-kind beverages feature fresh local ingredients turned into flavorful brews. If you’re ready for dinner, their menu includes traditional classics like chicken and waffles, as well as modern trends like flatbread pizzas. Hang out at Center Square Brewing and call it a night, or make your way over to one of our nearby speedways.  

Now that you’ve sampled Adams County’s robust brews, venture out and try some more of our craft beverages on your next visit!
