Beer Review: Pocono Punch (Barley Creek Brewing Company)

Beer Review: Pocono Punch (Barley Creek Brewing Company)

Sharing is Caring

It’s great to swap beers with friends.  Back in the day before craft beer distribution grew these were little nuggets of gold.  You’d wait in anticipation if you knew one brew was coming, you would be foaming at the mouth to taste.  Suddenly I find myself in possession of a Pocono Punch from Barley Creek Brewing Company from a friend’s son.

Pocono Punch

Pocono Punch comes in at 7.1% ABV which is very, very, very sneaky.  Not until I tried to stand up did I realize this might really be “Mommy’s fruit juice”. It is described as a fruited beer on Untappd.  On the Barley Creek Brewing Company website it is described as a canned ready – to – drink cocktail.  They go on to list: Mountain Mule, Barley Palmet and Transfussion as other ready – to – drink (RTD) cocktails.

Pocono Punch by Barley Creek Brewing Company

Beer: Pocono Punch
Brewery: Barley Creek Brewing Company
Style: Fruited Beer
ABV: 7.1%
IBU: N / A
Untappd Description: Blank
Global Untappd Rating: 4.09 (as of 8.6.23)


I also might have goofed the flavor of this by realizing after I was half way guzzling the tasty treat down that I was supposed to pour it over ice.  Whoops!  But let me tell you it is a refreshing thirst quencher coming in from a humid evening. 

It reminds me of how Hawaiian Punch used to taste as a kid.  I remember it as being a drink during the summer as well.  It comes in on Untapped with a 4.09 rating but not many check ins total.  One check in asks “Is there alcohol in this?”  I agree with this question until, like I said earlier, I tried to stand up!

Drink More Beer! (or at least Drink More Alcohol!)

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
