Lightning in a bottle?

AMAZING! That is all we can say at the moment. It was an honor to participate for the first time in the Limerick Uncorked event at Limerick Community Park on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2023. This annual event, presented by the Rotary Club of Spring-Ford, brings together local breweries, wineries, and distilleries from across Pennsylvania that provide complimentary samples, along with nationally-recognized food trucks that offer delicious cuisine and local bands that keep the music going all day long. There were so many amazing vendors there, all in one location, just a great day! We want to send a special thank you to all the Rotary Club volunteers that put on this event every year and for allowing us to be a part of this special event…keep it going!

As a homebrewer (brewery in planning), to be able to serve our beer(s) alongside other establish local craft breweries, was a dream come true. In a word, it was AMAZING! Coming off our emotional high from yesterday, we’ve had some time to reflect and ask ourselves, “Did we just catch lightning in a bottle?”

The greatest compliment we could receive, other than someone saying that they liked our beer(s), which we heard A LOT yesterday, was when they genuinely wanted to buy our beer. We can’t even count how many times we were asked, “Where can I find your beer?” or even better, “Where are you located so we can come visit and buy your beer?” This feedback is invaluable and was truly humbling to hear – overwhelming at times, we must admit, but it definitely helps to solidify that we are heading in the right direction. We absolutely love that our local community not only raved about our beer(s), but was excited to immediately come support our business when we open. We CANNOT WAIT to announce our grand opening someday in the future and look forward to continuing to serve the local community!

Along with being able to share our passion for craft beer with the local community, it is our steadfast commitment to give back to our active military and veterans. One of our dearest causes has been supporting the Friends of the Medal of Honor Grove in Valley Forge, PA and generating donations to help with the maintenance and upkeep of this spectacular 42-acre living memorial that honors over 3,500 recipients of our nation’s highest military decoration, the Medal of Honor – if you have not had the opportunity to visit this memorial in Valley Forge, we highly recommend taking a morning or afternoon to walk the grounds, (it is free). It is a truly humbling experience when walking through the memorial and thinking about some of our nation’s biggest heroes that sacrificed their lives for our Freedom! Thanks to your generosity yesterday, we raised over $600 for the Friends! We cannot thank you enough for your support of this great cause! And to all who purchased our shirt, we hope you rock them proudly! By the way, the demand for hats was extremely high…we heard you loud and clear, we will be getting more, and we will announce when they are available for purchase!

Again, all we can say about yesterday is THANK YOU for an incredible day! The community has truly embraced Hop Tank Brewing and we are so excited to bring you along on our journey in fulfilling our dreams.
