It Was All A Dream

It was all a dream, I used to read Word Up! magazine
Salt-n-Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine
Hangin’ pictures on my wall
Every Saturday Rap Attack, Mr. Magic, Marley Marl
I let my tape rock ’til my tape popped
Smokin’ weed in Bambú, sippin’ on Private Stock
Way back, when I had the red and black lumberjack
With the hat to match

Remember Rappin’ Duke? Duh-ha, duh-ha
You never thought that hip-hop would take it this far

Now I’m in the limelight ’cause I rhyme tight
Time to get paid, blow up like the World Trade
Born sinner, the opposite of a winner
Remember when I used to eat sardines for dinner
Peace to Ron G, Brucie B, Kid Capri
Funkmaster Flex, Lovebug Starski

I’m blowin’ up like you thought I would
Call the crib, same number, same hood, it’s all good
And if you don’t know, now you know

YAH Brew

Young at Heart (YAH Brewing)

It was all a dream.

We got the pleasure of visiting the new YAH Brew soft opening in Hershey, Pa over the weekend.  The place was packed and it was awesome to see Amiee and Justin’s dream of a 90s themed brewery come to life.  The nostalgia hits home but it was the relaxing vibe of the place that is the best.  Even being packed other patrons are happy to scooch over to make a seat and comment on which brew they were also enjoying.  Now, this is a brewery!

(Read about our covering the YAH Brewery’s starting their soft opening here.)

There were four of us that enjoyed the visit.  Ben and I, of course; and we also brought along my mom and Scarlet too.  My mom brought along her crafts to work on while sipping her beer.  Scarlet brought along lots of baby toys while sipping her formula.  Scarlet wasn’t the only baby there and it made for a fun time to see other small ones.  Kids could sip on Little Hug fruit barrels “huggies” if you remember those and they still make them!

When trying to pick out which beer to start off with it is easy to get distracted by the 90s nostalgia, the place exudes nostalgia.  You are mesmerized by the all 90s music videos playing as well as the super NES console hooked up on the other TV.  Before you know it you are trying to remember if you still have your super NES console at home and how many times you blew on that Donkey Kong cartridge to get it to work again.

There were beer drinkers enjoying the patio outside and even a dachshund was joining in at YAH Brew as well.  Any other day I would have been all over an outside patio seating but I felt like my luck it would immediately start raining again. I was going to start off with Fourscore + YA Brew Yeet fresh but that was kicked so I tried the Gushee: Blueberry, Pomegranate, Peach Sour ale.  It’s served in a glass that looks like a Gusher.

Remember those fruit snacks from the 90s.  It looked like a large Gusher! We also sipped on Internet Café an oatmeal stout that was delicious and the Wild Rabbit IPA from Ever Grain.  We nibbled on some chips that were available for snacks.  We can’t wait to see what items will come from a 90s nostalgia themed brewery kitchen when they have their Grand Opening next month.

I had to go for the Shimmy Shake: Peanut Butter Egg as my second brew.  I remember it fondly as my treat after a long and tiring Easter Day with the family. 

Amy reviewed the Shimmy Shake for her Easter weekly column

(Read more about Amy’s thoughts on the Shimmy Shake from her Easter weekly column here: Peanut Butter Eggs, Easter, Beer, and Yah Brew’s Shimmy Shake (Beer Review).)

But is it a Malt beverage or a golden stout?  It is listed as a Malt Beverage at the brewery but a golden stout on Untapped.  This lead us to have a lengthy argument on the two different beverage types.  But, regardless,  It was delicious!  I had to pull it away from my mom too, she kept stealing it!  Maybe we will rethink taking my mom out to breweries with us.

YAH Brew – Hazed by the Bell in the forefront, and YAH Brew – Shimmy Shake in the background.

We also had the Hazed by the Bell New England Hazy IPA.  This one had a bit of a hoppy taste but a must try when you stop in!

Cheers to the brewery location and we can’t wait to see it for the Grand Opening.

Thank You For Reading

Thank you for reading everyone! Editor B. Kline jumping in here for a closing bit. Thank you to everyone for reading. April was a fantastic month here at The Beer Thrillers with lots of great articles, great participation in the blog and site, and a lot of visitors to the site. Our Battle of the Breweries ended with Allusion Brewing Company winning, and we are going to be traveling back out to Vandergrift sometime in July to do a big event for them.

Speaking of big events – starting May 7th through May 10th is the Craft Brewers Conference. We will be there hanging out. If you are gonna be there, let us know and we’ll meet up! We can’t wait to go out and come down to Nashville TN (our first time there).

We have started our big project of doing maps of each state and showcasing all the breweries involved. So far we have three done:

Hoping by the end of May to have at least five more done. I would like to have the complete country done by the end of 2023, but we’ll see. Its quite time intensive.

There’s a lot more coming to the blog, and a lot of things happening. In just a few days is May the Fourth, which usually means a lot of breweries are turning their regular IPAs into Star Wars themed IPAs, and all kind of other shenanigans.
