Path of Pints is Gettysburg’s Craft Beer Adventure

 Come Participate in the Path of Pints

The Gettysburg Hotel has once again partnered with Susquehanna Style Magazine as one of your destinations on the Path of Pints, a craft beer adventure taking you throughout the Susquehanna Valley. One Lincoln Food & Spirits has an impressive ten tap system that rotates constantly. In addition to a few standards, we are always pouring two light beers, two seasonal options, two IPAs and one hard cider.

We sat down with our soon to be famous Mixologist and Restaurant Manager, Peter Bales, for a little more insight on craft beers and their growing popularity.

“Unlike the major distributors, craft beers come from smaller breweries and most of the brands we carry are locally owned and operated. These breweries use large amounts of hops and malts and tend to have a higher alcohol content and richer flavor. The depth of flavors and mix of textures is endless and is drawing quite the crowd of curious connoisseurs.”

He continued:

“The tap system in One Lincoln is ever changing and often features sample beers from our local craft breweries. Stop in often and try what we’ve got because sometimes, once it’s gone, it’s gone for good.”

And don’t think that the options are exhausted if you’ve tried everything we offer on tap. With almost endless bottled varieties, we continuously feature a wide assortment of Pennsylvania favorites, including Tröegs Brewing Company based in Hershey and Victory Brewing Company in Downingtown.

Whatever your palette, we are sure to have something to tempt your taste buds and the perfect entrée to pair with your selection.

Check out Susquehanna Style Magazine or for more information on the Path of Pints.

Gettysburg Named One of the Most Haunted Cities in America on The Today Show

Did you see? The Gettysburg Hotel (and our town of Gettysburg) was mentioned on the Today Show in a piece profiling some of the most haunted places in America. Gettysburg has long been popular among paranormal researchers and enthusiasts, owing in part to the lore that emerged from the aftermath of the Battle of Gettysburg.

Gettysburg Ghost Tours operates year-round, rain or shine, but they’re particularly popular come Halloween-time. Don’t let a little wet weather keep you away, by the way. They always have umbrellas on hand.

If you missed the live video, I’ve embedded it into the post below. Enjoy!

Gettysburg Hotel January Property Update: A Personal Message From General Manager Susan M. Perrothers

 Hello Friends,

Happy New Year! With renovations underway and Gettysburg’s 150th celebrations planned, we’re confident that 2013 will be a sensational year for the historic Gettysburg Hotel. I’m thrilled to be able to share so much good news from our hotel with you in this month’s newsletter.

Our extensive renovation that began in November will be completed in the next few months. The first phase of our renovation includes updates and enhancements to our guest rooms that have been absolutely transformative. Boxy televisions and dated décor have been stripped away and carefully replaced with fresh surfaces, sleek technology and refined décor without obscuring the historic integrity of our hotel. I’m pleased to announce that we will begin to offer our guests accommodations in our new guest rooms before the end of January.

The digital renderings featured in this newsletter highlight the direction of the new décor. It evokes a spirit of adventure that well-travelled guests will recognize. I hope the visual representation these renderings provide can give you a sense of just how totally amazing our completed renovation will be.

Next month I will share exciting news and updates related to the development of our new restaurant concept, One Lincoln. The transformation of McClellan’s Tavern into One Lincoln will raise the bar for dining excellence in downtown Gettysburg.

Until then, I wish you nothing but the best in the New Year.

I am so excited to share even more photos of the stunning holiday displays on Lincoln Square in downtown Gettysburg now in full swing. The tree on the Square is very special to many and if you have never seen it in person, I highly recommend making your plans to come to Gettysburg today.
