Autos and Ales – Friday, November 4th, 2022 – at the AACA Museum in Hershey, PA

Everyone’s Favorite Friday Brewfest

Its time yet again to get your drink and car fun on. Thats right, its time for the annual Autos and Ales. Everyone’s favorite Friday brewfest! (Also, will most likely be my list big event for a wee bit, since their due to induce Amy on the 9th.)

Last year was an absolute blast. You can read the article for last year’s here:

It is honestly a great and fun brewfest, encompassing two levels and letting you walk around looking at all of the cars. Everyone is very laid back, theres food in the basement area, band (or bands) playing, and lots of older folk getting ‘their groove on’.

Special Commemorative Beer

Every year Autos and Ales likes to make a specialty beer just for the event. Last year they had Snitz Creek Brewery do the honors. This year it will be Englewood Brewing from Hummelstown / Hershey PA. From their Facebook about it:

We try to connect beer and automotive history each year at Autos and Ales through a special transportation-inspired brew crafted by one of our participating breweries. On Friday, November 4th, our friends at Englewood Brewing will debut “Merlette Swan, a Schwarzbier Lager. Head brewer, Jesse Prall, is a Cadillac guy as evidenced by his tattoo and the naming of his beer. The “merlette swan” was a component of Cadillac’s original 1902 logo and has been on and off the company’s crest over the decades. The beer is on its way and promises to be easy to drink and dark like motor oil. Check out the photos from brew day and note the rubber ducky in the tank (Jesse says no swans were available); then get your tickets for this not to be missed annual event!

Thanks For Reading

Thank you for reading everyone! Always appreciate everyone stopping by and checking out the blog. Lots of big news going around here at the blog! A big Phillies win last night (7 – 0 !!!) with five home runs last night. What an amazing game that was! That makes the series now 2 – 1 Phillies, as they go into game four tonight in Philadelphia. Citizens Bank Park will be rocking! Also today is Wednesday, so another new episode of Andor, so that means its another Star Wars Wednesday, so another Star Wars themed beer review. (Also, with it being a Phillies game, that also means there will be a Phillies themed beer review. Whew, do I have my work cut out for me today.)

Also, as the norm with November, I do an article a day. My version of NaNoWriMo. So every day in November there will be at least one brand new article. So make sure you are stopping by the blog to check out everything that is going on. As there will be lots of beer reviews, book reviews, hike reviews, and other things to check out here.

And on the homefront even bigger news. We got told yesterday that they will be inducing Amy on the 9th. So looks like Scarlet Emma will be coming sooner than expected! (Original due date was November 22nd.) Things will be getting hectic from the 9th on, thats for sure! I’ll try and fit my writing in around the baby. So bear with us on all things blog related in that time frame.

Also, hopefully I’ll get to see you guys out at the Autos and Ales on Friday. Drew Scott and I will be there, Amy is most likely just going to be DD (designated driver), she might stay, or she might just be dropping and picking us up. Who knows yet. It is after all only five days before the induction.

Well, anyway, as always, thanks for reading, and make sure to root the Phillies on tonight!
