The apples are ripening and the pumpkins are growing. The weather begins to get cooler and the humidity at last will disappear. The leaves have already begun to change and the mums are starting to open again. Oh….we are just a few days away from the official start to my most favorite season in Pennsylvania – Autumn! Over the next few months I will journey across my countryside and visit the festivals, apple orchards, and pumpkin patches. I will ride the rail trails, kayak the lakes, and hike the trails all over Easter Pennsylvania. Menus will change to roasted butternut squash, apple crisps, and of course our favorite pumpkin beers. A visit to our favorite brewery, Weyerbacher, will most certainly be on the list of things to do to pick up some of our favorite Imperial Pumpkin Ale… This in my opinion is the best season in Pennsylvania and a great time to visit if you are thinking of taking a weekend trip to visit the countryside surrounding Philadelphia!
