Susquehanna Ale Trail adds new stops, will present Passport Event in April

File photo: Liquid Hero Brewery co-founder Christian Quinlivan replaces a keg of Pub Santa beer in January. Liquid Hero Brewery rotates many of its brews by the season, including its Christmas ale, Pub Santa.

The York County Convention & Visitors Bureau started The Susquehanna Ale Trail in 2012 as a self-guided tour to seven breweries, brewpubs and craft brewing outlets in the region. Participating establishments provide tours, tastings, educational opportunities and a behind-the-scenes look at the brewing process and craft beer industry.

In the past year, the Trail has doubled in size. Its 2013 Passport Event is slated April 12 to 14 and 19 to 21. The 14 breweries and brew pubs will give passport holders the chance for exclusive samplings and tours. Hours are 4 to 8 p.m. Fridays, noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. (Note: A few locations are closed Sundays.) Passports are $15 and Designated Driver Passports, which only include brewery tours, are $5. Click here for details and tickets.
