WILK Friday BeerBuzz–13 Apr 2012 Yorkholo Brewing Co w/Jarrod York

WILKFridayBerbuzz15I’ve really been amazed at just how many small and mid-sized breweries opened their doors in Pennsylvania in 2011.  The demand for local fresh craft beer is on the rise, and it’s a very promising sign for craft beer lovers.

The best part about the opening of a new brewery, is getting to try the new beers and getting to meet the man behind the brews.  Today we welcomed Jarrod York, brewmaster & owner of Yorkholo Brewing Co in Mansfield, PA on to the Friday BeerBuzz.  Jarrod York & Ashley Rodgers opened the doors at Yorkholo in Feb 2011 and it’s exciting to hear how well things are going.  The menu items and list of beers on their website looks great, and after talking to Jarrod, I’m excited to see what will come next for Yorkholo.

imageNamed after the family’s former 1861 Dairy Farm and based on Jarrod’s degree in Environmental Biology, Yorkholo carries on the fine traditions of sustainability and environmental friendliness.  I was excited to hear everything they’re doing to remain “green” and of course I love the fact that spent grains are used for veggie burgers.

Today we sampled Panamah Red Red Rye and I really thought it was a great beer, especially for this time of the year. It has a great easy-drinking body and a refreshing rye flavor…and yes it finishes nicely with clean hoppy flavors. This is a great Spring and summer beer for sure and one I really enjoyed.

It’s quite complex for an IPA, especially in the malt, but it’s very hop-forward and there’s no doubt this is a great IPA.

Of course we had to sample Jarrod’s NEW Jam Session Saison, and I really liked that brew even more.

Thank you to Jarrod York & Ashley Rodger from Yorkholo Brewing Co

, Nancy, John, & Bosco for yet another fun Friday.
