We are in need of serious repeal of this outdated law that we have continued to accept as Pennsylvanians for no reason.....Corbett mentioned in his budget that he wants PA Govt out of the liquor business....perhaps that will include beer being sold by distributors and not letting big retailers into the market?
The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) is an independent government agency that manages the beverage alcohol industry in…Continue

Attention beer fans!
I just added a new feature to the site - a video section. You can add your own home videos of you and your friends enjoying a good brew or add in a favorite YouTube video. I already added some clips I thought were worthy of sharing.
Are you not sure what to record? How about a new beer review, a homebrewing success story or some video inside a recent brewery tour. The easy answer is, it doesn't matter.
So, get out the VHS…

I assume you love drinking different kinds of beer - that's why you signed up for our Erie Beer Society in the first place. If you have a smartphone, I recommend you sign up for Untappd, the social network for beer lovers.
I've been using it for a few months now and I think it's fantastic. It's really helped me learn about new brews from other people I follow. For the nerd in me, I can collect badges after I have tried…Continue

Has anyone heard anything about an "International" brewfest this year? The one I attended last year was at Brewerie and I believe it was in November. It was all bottled beer from around the world. I'm hoping they do it again this year... great time. If anyone has the the scoop... please let know.

If you know a good bartender, make sure they register for the 2010 Showcase Bartender Challenge presented by Bud Light Lime. All the bartender has to do is upload a photo and fill out a short registration form at www.GoErie.com/bartenderchallenge. It's free (and it's for professional bartenders only). The bartender who receives the most votes will appear on the COVER of Showcase magazine in the Erie Times-News…Continue
Thank you to everyone who came out to the June meeting at Calamari's. We had a great time! I really enjoyed the beer -- Phoenix from Sly Fox -- and I am interested to know what everyone thought. More hops taste than I thought I'd like, but I really did like it. That's the beauty of the society -- the opportunity to try something new, and meet lots of new people!
I also wish to thank everyone who participated in our short survey. Your feedback will help us create better events and…Continue

I had an opportunity to go to the Kelley’s Island Brewery last week with a group of WQLN members and really enjoyed it – which (I guess) isn’t saying much, I seem to enjoy every Brewery that I go to - probably because they are all so different.
Kelley’s is run by Patti Johnson, who is very friendly and very welcoming.
The brewery is totally laid back. It’s located on the south shore of the big US Lake Erie Island. Kelley’s Island is pretty much a bicycle only…Continue
