In the past decade, the craft beer movement has taken off. The days of three or four big domestics and a handful of imported beers has passed. The people have spoken: Craft beer is here to stay.
Small, unique breweries have exploded across the country, particularly in the Northeastern U.S. If you’re looking at Bucks County homes for sale, you’re probably aware of the proximity to a few of the major craft breweries. Dog Fish Head, Troegs, Victory, Philadelphia Brewing Company, Weyerbacher, and even The oldest brewery in the county, Yuengling, are only a few hours away. You might not know, however, that Bucks County, PA is host to a few brewing companies that are masters of the craft as well.
Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company- Located in Croydon, Bucks County, Neshaminy Brewery has great beer and a fun atmosphere.
