LANCASTER, Pennsylvania — Building on its reputation as the “Little Munich of America,” Lancaster County has developed a new Lancaster County Ale Trail that highlights the county’s tradition for fine hand-crafted brews at venues from Adamstown to Manheim and Mount Joy to downtown Lancaster.

Among the breweries and brew pubs on the Ale Trail are the Lancaster Brewing Company in a former tobacco warehouse in Lancaster; the Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant in College Row, adjacent to the Franklin and Marshall College campus in Lancaster; Bube’s Brewery, a 19th century brewery complex in Mount Joy; Cork Factory Hotel at Urban Place in Lancaster; Rumspringa Brewing Company between Intercourse and Bird-in-Hand, the first nano-brewery in Lancaster County; Swashbucklers’ Brew Pub at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire at Mount Hope; and Stoudt’s Brewing Company in Adamstown.
