Housed inside the Old B&O Train Station, Rust Belt brews nine craft beers, with a handful more scheduled for release early next year. Each Saturday from noon to 5 p.m., fans of yeast and hops can gather 'round head brewer Lee Gidley as he guides them on a tour of the brewery, showing them equipment, explaining the brewing process, and doling out samples of the luscious liquid gold. When the half-hour tour concludes, everyone receives a commemorative Rust Belt Brewery T-shirt, a souvenir pint glass, and a jolly memory to overtake the brain space currently inhabited by knowledge of the Gigli plot. If the tour inspires a powerful thirst for more, Rust Belt sells growlers of their guzzleables to take home, and the neighboring Boxcar Lounge has Rust Belt on tap.
In many ways, Freedom Farms isn't your typical American farm. In 2009, brothers Joe, Tim, and Pete King founded Freedom Farms and reunited their entire family?nine brothers, a sister, and mother "Mama Bear" Lisa?on the property to run the land. If that sounds familiar, that's because Freedom Farms has its own reality show, "Farm Kings" on GAC, based on the day-to-day lives of the family.
As unconventional as Freedom Farms might seem on paper, its origins are fairly traditional. The King kids grew up on a family farm and today work toward connecting their community with local food. For passers-by, Freedom Farms has become a neighborhood stop for just that. Since opening, the property has grown to feature markets and even a sandwich and a donut shop. The family even publishes a monthly magazine so fans can check out the family's recipes, gardening tips, and keep up with all the show's happenings.
Penn's Colony Event Grounds host a duo of festivals during the year, beginning with the semi-annual Wine Time tasting event in June. The annual Penn's Colony Festival, which is held in September, replicates an early American colonial village with lively 18th-century bagpipe music, French and Indian War battle reenactments, and interactive activities such as basket-weaving and nine-pin bowling. More than 180 artisans congregate at the sprawling, tree-shaded colonial village, setting up booths with furniture, art, and gifts. Meanwhile, local gourmet-food vendors hawk smoked sausages, apple dumplings, and beef stew. Throughout the year, the colony's grounds are available for special events such as antique shows, retreats, and weddings, at which unruly uncles can be confined in a pillory.
Transform your wine technique from a semi-inspired slosh to a proper swirl by traversing a variety of distinct wine blends at WineStyles.

If something strikes your fancy throughout the tasting, simply spill a few drops on your shirt and the expert staff will happily sniff out a corresponding bottle for purchase.
