But before we get to excited about the return of Lovitz Lager, we have also been super busy collaborating and coming up with a brand new recipe for The Liquid Art Series called Das Pretzel Gose! 300 lbs of freshly baked pretzels' from York City Pretzel went into this brew with the malted barley from Germany. Golden Pale in color, this kettle soured German style ale has flavors and aromas emerge of white grape and fruit followed by a refreshing tartness and a salted pretzel finish. Wash the pretzel down with this refreshing, salted tart ale! Don't miss the release of the beer on Wednesday, May 3rd on tap and in 22 oz. bomber bottles later in the week.

In other new beer news, we are bringing back an old time favorite at Roy-Pitz, The Falling Spring Lager. This German Style Helles Lager is golden to straw in color and has aromas and flavors of fresh bread, biscuits and cornmeal. The clean easy going lager is full bodied with a creamy texture and crisp finish. Named after the beautiful natural spring that runs through downtown Chambersburg and right by Roy-Pitz Brewing Co.

Finally, Doc's Pale Ale will return to The Liquid Art series and will be released Monday, May 8th. This pale ale boasts big aromatics of fruit and dank citrus. Doc's is named after the late, great, Dr. Richards Senior who has been a huge inspiration and mentor to Roy-Pitz Brewery Co. and the Franklin County Community since he arrived as the first Orthopedic Surgeon in Franklin County back in 1953. He is greatly missed by all but his legacy lives on with his practice, Richards Orthopedic Center and Sports Medicine and this delicious pale ale which was his favorite.
