Brewery Sells Out In Of Rare Beer

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – It has taken a Pennsylvania brewery only a couple of hours to sell 400 bottles of a limited edition brew at $22.95 apiece.

Beer lovers began lining up outside Troegs Brewing Company in Harrisburg the night before Thursday’s special sale of the 25-ounce bottles of Splinter Blue beer.

The beer was aged in oak bottles for more than a year before being bottled. The brewery says Splinter Blue has “a sharp acidic cherry flavor, followed by a doughy cereal-like finish.’’

Brewery co-owner Chris Trogner says people came from New Jersey, Maryland and even Massachusetts.
