The Stoudt brewery has been supplying tasty brews to discriminating PA beer drinkers for decades. In High School I had a science teacher who was profiled by the Daily News for his study of beer history. I asked him which beer was his favorite and he pointed to the hat he was wearing in the photo with the article. It said “Stoudt’s”. (By the way, I googled him and found my retired science teacher here.)
On to the restaurant and brew pub opened by the Stout’s to feature their fresh brewed beer in Adamstown, PA (antiques capital of the United States).
I have been to Stoudt’s a half dozen times over the years and always have a good, but not great meal. Today was no different. The menu focuses on three things: beer, German food and a raw bar (consisting entirely of colossal shrimp, topneck clams and blue point Long Island Salt oysters, all served raw). It’s an odd mix, but it works. (more…)
