Set for May 11
It may seem like the nicer weather is a long way off, but it will arrive, and that means outdoor activities for normal humans can resume. One of the best for The PubScout last year was the 2nd Annual Brewfest in historic Washington's Crossing State Park, PA, just south of New Hope. The Motorcycle Men and Mamas of the CJMRG went down in a caravan on an absolutely sparkling May day to sample the wares of 65 brewers from across the country. Food, fun, re-enactors and a chap who looked very much like the most revered of the Founding Fathers made the day a great success. The good news is that they're doing it again. The bad news is that, as you might expect, tickets go fast. Use the links below to gather info and make your plans. This is a PubScout Recommended trip, whether on two wheels or four. Or two legs or four. See you there!
