Downtown Expedition

Gettysburg has an incredible tasting experience right in the heart of its downtown streets.

Day 1

Start off your Adams County Pour Tour adventure by sampling some wine at Adams County Winery – Gettysburg Wine Shop on Chambersburg Street. They are known for their sweet libations produced right here in the county.

Go a little further down Chambersburg Street and you’ll see Knob Hall Winery’s Gettysburg Tasting Room. Knob Hall has a more dry selection to balance out your tasting journey. 

Explore the boutiques and shops in and around Lincoln Square. Once you work up an appetite, you’ll have a great selection of restaurants to choose from all within walking distance.

After enjoying a delicious culinary delight, it’s time for more tastings! If it’s nice out you can walk down Baltimore Street to Reid’s Winery: The Cider House. At Reid’s you can add two stamps to your Adams County Pour Tour passport – one for cider and one for wine. Check the event calendar, because Reid’s is known for their open mic nights and live music.

After your tasting, you may want to mix in some of the history that Gettysburg is known for. Right on Baltimore Street you can pick from museums like Civil War Tails at the Homestead Diorama, the Shriver House Museum, the Jennie Wade House Museum, The Rupp House or Gettysburg Museum of History.

Next, enjoy a sampling at Buddy Boy Winery’s Gettysburg Tasting Room, also located on Baltimore Street. Buddy Boy has a wide selection of wines for every palate. Don’t forget to claim your prize after receiving five unique stamps so you can remember your downtown expedition. 

End your evening with a round of beer or spirits from Tattered Flag Tap Room - Gettysburg, and a spooky ghost tour where you'll find spirits of the other variety. Tattered Flag partners with Gettysburg Ghost Tours & Gettysburg Paranormal Association on a Craft Beer & Spirits Package.

Day 2

Are you ready for another day of tasting Gettysburg's flavorful craft beverages? First on the list is Mount Hope Winery at Gettysburg located right on Lincoln Square. This new tasting room has a little bit of everything - wine, cider, beer, spirits and mead. Sample a few different beverages and grab a souvenir bottle of their Battlefield Series wine before heading down Baltimore Street to J & P Winery. New to Gettysburg, J & P Winery has a robust wine selection including over 40 varieties of wine from barrel aged dry to ice wine and sweet. Stop in to discover the taste in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere in downtown Gettysburg. 

Getting hungry? We recommend stopping at Appalachian Brewing Company - Battlefield for a cold beer and a bite to eat. Sample both beer and spirits for two new passport stamps! With menu options like Mountain Nachos and Brewers Mac & Cheese, you won't leave hungry. Right across the street is the historic Soldiers' National Cemetery. Pay tribute to the men who died in the Battle of Gettysburg for a humbling experience. Hungry for more history? Just down the street you will also find the Gettysburg Heritage Center - Museum where you can learn about the battle from the perspective of civilians, as well as soldiers.

Your last stop for the day is to Gettysburg's newest brewery, Fourscore Beer Co. (coming summer 2019). With 14 beers on tap, you may want to try a flight. And their food menu is sure to satisfy before you  hit the road and head back home. During dinner, you'll probably be planning your return because there are plenty more Adams County Pour Tour stops to visit!
