Agree on that - DW has a spicier profile. Weinstephaner is my gold standard for the style - All the typical hefe flavors are perfectly balanced.

As far as PA hefes, DW is up there for me. Big fan of Stoudt's Weizen as well.

You know, in case there was a free window, and no one was doing anything...

We might catch some Indian then, and save Gettysburg for a more convenient day!

I have to revive this thread. Planning a trip to Philly via Harrisburg to facilitate a stop at Troegs. Looking at the map and the breweries along the way, here's the itinerary:
Troegs
Lancaster
Victory
Given that we're coming up from 2 hours south, visiting to taste is more realistic than actually going on the tours due to time constraints. Any concerns with this plan? Troegs is my favorite brewery, but I can't invest the time there given our final destination in Philly. Am I neglecting any great stops in these areas?

Check out Stoudts. They are just a short ways off 76. I've only been there once. While none of the beers blew me away, all of them were of high quality. I like that in a brewery. There are some breweries I have a love/hate relationship with. Sure they will have a beer or 2 I love, but then a bunch I don't like at all. I liked everything I had at Stoudts, but didn't leave thinking wow, that was a fantastic xyz. I will definitely be stopping again.

I went to Lancaster Brewing last weekend and then did the 2:30 troeg's beer tour and had a great time. Troegs is kinda small so you may end up sampling your beers in the gift shop like I did.

Nugget Nectar is a must!!

Dan, is the clone you have in secondary reliable? I'm not an all-grain brewer, so is there an option for me? Nugget Nectar is #1 on my beer list, so I would love to clone it if I can find a good one.

Thanks to everyone on the feedback about the tours.

If you'll be in Philly you might want to stop off at Yard's brewery, it's not one of my favorites overall but locally it's a cool brewery with some memorable beers. Philly has quite a few really, but depends on your time constraints I suppose
