Howling Henry’s Not Looking to Finish Out the Year

Howling Henry’s Not Looking to Finish Out the Year

2023 Might Be the End for Howling Henry’s Brewery

It is looking like 2023 might be claiming another brewery. Sadly, in a recent post in a Facebook beer group asking about Howling Henry’s Brewery – the owner responded saying that they will not be getting a new taproom and that they will likely be done by the end of 2023.

The question posed in the group was: “Does anyone know if Howling Henry’s is open in any capacity?

The owner of Howling Henry’s Brewing LLC – Greg Schertzer responded: “Unfortunately, I don’t have plans to be open past this year. I do not have a tap room at the Klick Lewis Arena anymore. I have cases available for delivery, but I have no plans to open a new taproom.

Howling Henry’s Brewing LLC

Howling Henry’s Brewing LLC originally started in Hummelstown, brewing from the old Theo’s warehouse at the corner of 2nd Street and Duke Street. They sold kegs and bottles to various local bars and restaurants and distributors.

One of his earliest beers was – BOPA – Basil Onion Pale Ale.

They then opened a tap room location on 2nd Street in Hummelstown – 35 East Second Street, Hummelstown PA, 17036.

Brewery Opening – Howling Henry’s Brewery in Hummelstown. The Hummelstown taproom was opened in October of 2020 – amidst the pandemic – and about the same week as the Rubber Soul Brewpub opening (also in Hummelstown).

Around early June 2022, Howling Henry’s moved to the Klick Lewis Arena in Annville. Its a part of the sports complex in the Annville – Palmyra area called “In the Net”. At one time there was a building in the complex that housed Snitz Creek Brewery’s (original) second location. The tap room location for Howling Henry’s was in the hockey arena, and overlook area.

Closing Down

Greg Schertzer announcing Howling Henry’s taproom will not be returning.

It would seem in the last few months Howling Henry’s Brewing LLC has lost their location at the Klick Lewis Arena and are no longer there.

This was their second tap room – after the one in Hummelstown closed.

As he said in the Facebook beer group’s post – he doesn’t have any plans to stay open past this year (2023). He also states that he has no plans on re – opening any tap rooms or having a new tap room going forward. He does state that he has cases available for delivery.

Which sounds like he is completely shutting down Howling Henry’s Brewing LLC and closing shop, and will no longer be brewing.

Howling Henry’s has been a staple at Hummelstown events like the Winter Fling for several years now (probably dating back to 2017 or 2018), as well as some local brew fests like the Mount Hope Renaissance Faire brew fest held yearly in Manheim. They also went to a few other brew fests in the area (I believe the Lititz Brew Fest, the Auto Ales at the AACA Museum, the Fort Hunter Dauphin County / Harrisburg brew fest, and the PA Flavor event at the Harrisburg Farm Show complex). It is a shame to see a community friendly brewery – business – close its doors, and its a shame to see any person’s dream project come to an end.

We would like to wish the best for Greg, and everyone else involved with Howling Henry’s Brewing LLC. We hope its not the end of the road, but understand that sometimes it is. We wish the best to all involved going forward.

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.
