WILK Friday BeerBuzz - 5 Oct 2012 Turkey Hill Cask Pale Ale w/Don Abraczinskas

WILKFridayBerbuzz15Back in January we welcomed the manager and brewer for a great new local brewery into the WILK studios.  We sampled some beer and we talked about the brewpub, and really had a great time.  Jim Hahn & Oran Tansey were great guests and we really loved the beers.  A few weeks later, Mrs. BeerBuzz and I traveled to Bloomsburg, PA and spent the evening at Turkey Hill Brewing Co and everything changed.

When you visit Turkey Hill Brewing Co in person, you’ll realize what I mean when I say Turkey Hill is an amazing place to enjoy a beer.  If you ever want an example of “how to do it right” visit Turkey Hill.  Whether you have dinner in the restaurant, sit on the patio with a Summer Hefeweizen or sit in the pub to enjoy a hand drawn pint, you’ll find Turkey Hill is amazing.  From the converted barn structure to the hand-made tap handles and stone walls, Turkey Hill will draw you in and the beer and food will make you want to come back again and again.

Today we welcomed back Jim Hahn and Turkey Hill brewmaster Don Abraczinskas into the studio to sample some beer with us.  Don has been brewing for over 25-years and when you taste his beer you’ll see how his experience and attention to detail pays off in some wonderful brews.  When we visited Turkey Hill last January, Don had a new Belgian Dubbel in the tanks that was simply amazing.  His Journeyman IPA is wonderfully hoppy and his Saisons are first class.
Today we sampled a variety of beer from Turkey Hill.  I was really excited to sample Turkey Hill’s new Cask Pale Ale.  This is a classic easy drinking pale ale and a very sessionable brew as well.  To compliment that we sampled Urban Abbey Pumpkin Ale.  Don trademarked all his beers under the trade name Urban Abbey Brewing Co, so it’s great to see that original name survive in the beers @ Turkey Hill.  Urban Abbey Pumpkin is loaded with spice and gourd-flavor and it’s a wonderful beer especially for a crisp fall evening. 

As if that wasn't enough, we also sampled Don’s BIG Rolling Fog Barley Wine.  This is a big malty barley wine style brew.  Loaded with dark fruit flavors and a touch of boozy in the back bone, this is a great sipper of a beer and with the big ABV, you’ll want to sip this beer slowly.

Be sure to get down to Turkey Hill Brewing Co and try it for yourself.  It is literally just off the Rt 80 exit for Bloomsburg on Rt 487 so it’s easy to find….and once you try some of Don’s beers, you’ll want to come back for more.

Thank you to Jim Hahn & Don Abraczinskas from Turkey Hill Brewing, Nancy, John & Joe for yet another

fun Friday.
