Wednesday: 3 ways to get crafty (craft beer, that is)

Cheers to making it to the halfway point of the work week without any major catastrophes (apart from when you yelled at Brad for not refilling the paper in the printer’s paper tray. But c’mon Brad – you gotta know better man.) Treat yourself on this autumnal Wednesday and celebrate American Craft Beer Week with, that’s right, some craft beer. (And maybe buy Brad one to make up for your outburst. Or should he buy you one?)

Here are three events worth checking out tonight. Cheers!

Lost Abbey at Hunger-N-Thirst (Lancaster)

Satisfy all your basic needs (i.e. beer and food) at Hunger-N-Thirst with five beers from California-based craft brewery Lost Abbey and two dinner specials from the kitchen crew at H-n-T starting at 5 p.m. Hunger-N-Thirst also welcomes Lost Abbey’s own Matt Pushinsky. The beer line-up includes Cuvee de Tomme, Red Poppy, Serpents Stout and more.

Pride of the Susquehanna Brews Cruise (Harrisburg)

Legend has it Mark Twain himself once sailed the (seas?) of the Susquehanna river on the mighty Pride of the Susquehanna. Whether that’s true or not, it’ll make for a great tall tale to tell tonight while you cruise the Susquehanna and sip some Appalachian Brewing Co. beer during the first Pride of the Susquehanna’s Brews Cruise of the season. Cruises run through October – check out the schedule and get your tickets for tonight’s cruise – which casts off at 6

Starr Hill Tap Invasion at Mosby’s Pub (Mount Joy)

Mosby’s Pub in Mount Joy hosts a tap takeover with Starr Hill Brewery – the Virginia-based craft brewery from 7-9 p.m. The event features four offerings including the limited edition Habanero Reviver – a habanero-infused red IPA, as well as Soul Shine – a Belgian IPA, Grateful Pale Ale and King of Hop – an Imperial IPA. Receive a free souvenir Starr Hill Brewery pint glass with the purchase of a Starr Hill beer while supplies last. A representative from Starr Hill Brewery will be on hand to answer all your questions and talk beer.

By the way – If you noticed the Dogfish Head event scheduled for tonight at Shank’s Tavern in Marietta that we printed in the Bar Hopping feature in our Lancaster edition, it’s been moved to next Wednesday, May 20.
