Brewery Hopping

David had to take me to Hershey, PA for my last doctor appointment on my left thumb.  After surgery, a cast for 5 weeks, a brace and 6 weeks of therapy I have been released to go out and cause trouble.  To celebrate we decided to check out a few breweries in town.

First stop was Rotunda brewery and it was lunch time.  We were starving by this time, so perfect place for lunch.


We were told that because of Covid-19 you have to buy food with your beer. I guess it is to keep people from over crowding or maybe because if you have to eat something you won’t stay as long which will allow more people a chance to come in.  Anyway we didn’t care we were ready for lunch.  Since we did plan to hit a couple of more places decided to eat small.

It was nice inside and the beer was good.

The food was nice.  I had deviled eggs which were great.  David thought he would go with the pretzel.  I don’t believe it went with the small taste he was hoping for.


We said good bye to Rotunda Brew Pub; we did find out that the owners last name is Rotunda.



We then drove to downtown Hershey.


Be sure to check out the street lights on Chocolate Avenue.

Our next stop was Iron Hill Brewery.



We checked out the beer and food menu.  We did order some roasted brussel sprouts that I forgot to take a photo of.


We chose to sit outside.

It was cool to sit there and watch a roller coaster at Hershey Park.


We just couldn’t resist this dessert though.  We shared.


Now it was time to walk down the street to our next stop.  As I waddled down the sidewalk I am thinking I just can’t eat any more.  We then came to the Tattered Flag.


We walked in and asked what was the smallest thing we could order to have a beer.  I just couldn’t look at food anymore.  They said we have roasted corn for $1.50.  David had to eat it though.


The beer was good.  They have a distillery too.  This place was started by a veteran which is where the name came from.

David then rolled me to the car to head home.  The worst thing was that we had dinner plans with our friends at 5.  We got home at 4:30.

Stay safe out there and thanks for stopping by!

    1. It really is a cute town and we were very stuffed. I had a friend in Alaska who’s Mom worked at Hershey and ever Christmas she got a huge box of kisses. She always shared with my family.
