Cold Spring Inn and Brewery

It started off like we were just going to check out another brewery the both of us hadn’t been to before.  Even though it was only Thursday it was the most stressful week in a long time. We really needed a break, just a moment to relax and breath.  We had tried to catch Cold Springs Brewery before but the hours and it isn’t open all year round; our schedules just didn’t work out before.

But this past Thursday looked like it was going to work out well.  Driving to Cold Springs we hit traffic, a major accident on the highway, so I was already feeling tense.  We finally are arriving and I thought for sure a trashcan was on fire in the parking lot.  But it turns out I just need to relax more and the smoker is across the street in the parking lot.

Walking up to Cold Springs Brewery there are a couple quirky signs and a sign warning you about a 2-hour time limit at your table.  The hostess took us through the restaurant and to the very corner of the deck area in what felt like the coziest and romantic spot there.  At first, I got a lil scared, that deck is pretty high up from the creek.  I, of course, made the mistake of looking down.  But I took a deep breath and was going to ignore one of my biggest fears, heights. 

Beer and Food

Cold Spring Inn and Brewery Beer List

We quickly looked over the beer menu; good selection and guest taps as well.  They also featured their House cocktails with local distillery, Dead lightning.  We picked out Miraculous McGarrity IPA and the Beerita.  Both of these tasted wonderful and set the tone for a wonderful dinner by the Creekside. 

Miraculous McGarrity IPA comes in at a 7.9% ABV but it is so smooth.  There are not details listed on Untapped but the description on the menu says “Open your heart and wallet to help our cousin.  We brewed a special Hazy IPA to honor his perseverance going forward in Life” This calls for a toast to your cousin. 

The Beerita is described as a fruit beer with a 5% ABV.  It is described on Untapped at “this beer started life as a blonde ale then we added copious amounts of key lime and a dash of salt for a super refreshing summer beer.  Cheers.”   Cheers indeed.  The Beerita gets an overall 3.75 rating which isn’t near high enough for a beer this thirst quenching.

Cold Spring Inn and Brewery Food and Beer

The service was great and checked in with us frequently.  When we, or maybe I should say I, ordered the food came out decent time for a busy looking Thursday evening.  

We ordered the Pit chicken and the pulled pork.  Both dishes did not disappoint.  The pit chicken came with your choice of sides.  Hence surviving the stressful week, I decided to go with the French fries and the onion rings as my sides.  My Boo also went with the French fries for his side.

I am a lucky girl and got to steal his pickle and of course the Cole slaw was given directly to me, so I shared some onion rings and fed him some of my delicious chicken.  He, in return, fed me some of his pulled pork. 

Good Date Night

A wonderful date night

I took a deep sigh and decided we most definitely need to visit the Cold Springs Brewery again.

Drink more Beer.

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.
