Mason Porter…the beer!

Monday, June 20th, 2011

Summer is rolling along quite nicely. We had a great time at the Smoked Country Jam this past weekend. Some bands we really loved were the Stevens Family Band and the Hillbilly Gypsies.

This Friday we find ourselves in Northern, PA once again at the Bull Frog Brew Pub in Wiliamsport.

Sunday we are doing playing a benefit show in memory of Daniel Pevar the Note in West Chester. Dan was a friend of the band and local artist/songwriter/film maker who passed away this past spring. Proceeds go to the Dan Pevar memorial scholarship to the Chester County Art Association. Also playing is Hoots and Hellmouth and Rob Melso. More on this event here.

Re-order Porter month has been a lot of fun so far. Two more Wednesdays left. The week it’s the Joe D’Amico Band.

Upcoming shows:
Friday, June 24th Bullfrog Brew Pub, Williamsport, PA
Sunday, June 26th The Note, West Chester, PA
Saturday, July 2nd OATS Fest, Benton, PA
Sunday, July 3rd Elk Creek Café, Millheim, PA
Much more on our TOUR page…

We are pretty excited to announce that Boxcar Brewing Company brewed a delicious Mason Porter (a beer that is) recently. We got to enjoy some at Maysie’s Farm Fest. We are not sure what their plans for the future of this beer are, but we are hoping to see some more in the future. Much thanks to Jamie Robinson and the folks at Boxcar.
