The Top 5 Beers from the Washington’s Crossing Brewfest

By Kevin Hussey, Eric Duncan & Matt Goldstein

The Washington’s Crossing Brewfest was held this past Saturday in Washington’s Crossing Park in Soleburry PA just outside of New Hope.  With over 50 breweries the competition was steep and beer flowing big.  Firestone & Samuel Smith stole the show with some craft beer standard classics.

1. Firestone Walker Reserve Porter:

The Firestone Walker Reserve Porter flat out crushed the competition at the Washington’s Crossing Brewfest.  The reserve porter is a robust style porter and made with premium 2-row malts, maris otter, crystal 77, crystal 120 with bitter, cascade and whirlpool hops.  The Reserve Porter is dark, sweet, malty, slightly bitter with notes of caramel and toffee.  It’s a banger!  Good luck finding a better porter.

2. Samuel Smith Organic Ale

The Samuel Smith Organic Ale is Certified organic by the USDA-accredited UK Soils Association.  A golden ale with beautiful malts and just enough kick from the hops.  A classic ale.

The Maduro is an American brown ale and also got an A- on Beer Advocate.  Enough said.

4. Climax ESB

We thought Fuller’s had the best ESB out there.  We were wrong.  The Climax Extra Special Bitter Ale has notes of honey, toffee and caramel, and a hop bitter kick.

The Men’s Room Red is made with Crisp 77 Crystal, Munich, Cara-hell, Cara-Red and Cara-vienne malts and hopped with Chinook and Cascade.  A portion of the proceeds from this ale go to support military veterans.  Get one today… 

.

The worst beer of the brewfest?  Beach Haus!  We don’t care where it’s from and you won’t care how it tastes.  Also, the lady at the tent handing out the beers was a total bitch.

    The Beach Haus broad acted as if it was a privilege to drink that swill. No wonder there was no line for their beer, or that they were stuck in a corner near the porta potty LOL!

    That’s a dead give away. There was zero line for that beer. Beach Haus had no business being at a brewfest and neither did that stupid B serving it.
