Authentic Adams County
When it comes to authenticity, look no further than the Adams County Pour Tour.
Many beverage makers on the trail utilize ingredients grown right here in Adams County, offering a true farm-to-glass experience. Take Mason Dixon Distillery, for example, who grows 99.9% of their grains on the Gettysburg Battlefield.
Thirsty Farmer Brew Works also takes pride in growing their ingredients on site. As you sip on their delicious beer and cider, admire the towering columns of hops and bountiful orchards surrounding the area.
That’s not all – Adams County Winery and Halbrendt Vineyard & Winery possess sprawling vineyards where they pick their own grapes and process them into delightful wines.
Several Pour Tour stops also provide farm-to-fork dining options. When visiting Reid’s Winery: The Cider House, indulge in tasty food cheffed up by Clawson’s at the Cider House. Fourscore Beer Co., Mela Kitchen at Jack’s Cider House, and Thirsty Farmer Brew Works also offer meals crafted with fresh, local ingredients.
Grab your passport and sample delicious libations while enjoying farm-fresh food!
