In honor of Fly After 5 becoming a bi-monthly publication, we’re here to bring you twice the Lancaster County fun. That means twice the music, twice the food and twice the arts and culture. Be on the lookout for our first two issues Sept. 1 and Sept. 15.
It doesn’t matter how nice the weather is, Monday is still Monday. You’ll need coffee in the morning, and coffee again in the afternoon. (Frankly, the same rule applies to Tuesday. And Wednesday. OK, all week…)
If you happen to work in downtown Lancaster like we do, you’re lucky to have some great coffee choices within easy walking distance.
Here are two that we keep coming back to at Team Fly:
The Velvet Hammer at Square One
Custom blended, hot bloomed, cold brewed, charged with nitrogen, tapped and poured just for you. #nitrocoldbrew ______________________________________________ The Velvet Hammer is now available in Lancaster and at our newest shop on JFK Blvd in Philadelphia. #ontap #nitro #hotbloom #coldbrew #SQ1fix #VelvetHammerColdBrew 📷: @taylormihaljevic A photo posted by Square One Coffee (@squareonecoffee) on
If you have the time to sit and linger over a cup of cold-brewed coffee, you owe it to yourself to head to Square One Coffee at 145 N. Duke St. and try the Velvet Hammer. It’s not only a tasty cold-brew, it’s served on a nitro tap line. You know, like a Guinness stout, or any number of other beers that benefit from that creamy-smooth nitro texture. Another awesome point – it comes in its own cool glass!
Cold brew bottles from Passenger
This heat wave isn’t over yet! Luckily we have plenty of cold brew bottles (and new labels!) to refresh you. A photo posted by Passenger Coffee (@passengercoffee) on
These little gems are available in two flavors (I prefer the “slightly sweet”), and they’re perfect for a chilled caffeine fix on the go. We usually pick ’em up at the Passenger shop at 7 W. King St., or at Prince Street Cafe, at 15 N. Prince St.
