I attended my first meeting of the Erie Beer Society last night at my favorite watering hole, the U Pick 6 Beer Store. The Society is a great way to bring true beer lovers together in a reputable manner. Thanks to all who made it happen. And thanks to Long Trail for your offering.
Long Trail has accomplished what they set out to do, make a light and refreshing wheat beer with a hint of blackberry flavor. This was a very good example of a summer thirst quencher. The light golden color, low… Continue

My wife & I attended our first meeting @ U Pick 6.We enjoyed meeting new people & the event seemed well attended.The beer was too "thin" for our tastes. Not much flavor,watery.This would be a good summer beer/entry level craft beer for a new beer drinker.We look forward to the next meeting----cheers!

I agree that it would make a great summer drink. It was very drinkable but I feel it needs just a little more flavor. Not that I want an after taste but just needs a little more of a kick. Continue

Congratulations Lisa - the January meeting was a blast. I must admit that I am not a wheat-beer guy. There is an after taste that I am unable to describe. It may be a yeasty finish kind of thing – not sure, but I did enjoy the Long Trail Blackberry Wheat. The color and flavor were very much like a Rolling Rock. I only recognized the slight hint of blackberry and I didn’t get any of the wheaty after taste. Good starter beer for anyone who wants to experiment with craft brews.

Good morning all! Thanks to everyone who came out to last night's meeting at U Pick 6. I am wondering if you enjoyed the beer we sampled -- Long Trail Blackbeary Wheat. Let us know by blogging about it on this site. I am fond of wheat beers so I was looking forward to trying it. Very drinkable! I especially liked that the fruit taste was not overpowering, though it smelled very fruity. It was a little light on the wheat taste, but overall a delicious and easy-to-drink beer that has hot summer… Continue

Have you ever had one of those awesome beers that you won't soon forget? That's Long Trail's Blackbeary Wheat. I'm actually blogging this from U Pick 6 on Peach Street where we're sampling Long Trail's fantastic brew. I've been standing next to Josh and his crew from Erie Beer handing this beer out for the last two hours. The reviews have been fantastic from the club! NICE JOB Long Trail - I'm now a fan.

My wife and I went to the Church Brew Works in Pittsburgh on Saturday. Church is located in the old St. John's The Baptist Church in Lawrenceville, across the street from the ‘now closed’ Pittsburgh Brewery. I had two beers there –the Pipe Organ Pale Ale and a seasonal called Sleigh Wrecker.
I love a strong hop flavor in a craft brew and usually ask for the hoppiest thing on tap. If the wait staff knows their stuff, they usually will serve a tasty mug of just what the doctor ordered.… Continue
