Bube’s Brewery – A 19th Century Experience

If you follow along on our adventures, especially on Instagram, you know that I love a good brew. Wherever we travel, we look for breweries along our route. I never get tired of checking out a brewery tour and of course sampling all the beers. I have to say that of all the breweries I have visited Bube’s Brewery is by far the most unique and interesting. It is worth veering off course to stop in for a tour, a bite to eat, and some great suds.

Bube’s Brewery Beers

Bube’s Brewery brews beer in small batches on site so the selection of handcrafted beers on draft changes frequently. All the more reason to come back often for a pint. I really enjoyed all of the selections that were available during my visit especially the porter.

As always I recommend a getting a flight when visiting a new brewery

Bube’s Brewery Dining Options

One of the things lacking at many breweries is great food, not so at Bube’s Brewery. The menu had so many great options I had a hard time deciding what to eat. So, I asked my server to share her favorites. She recommended the toasted pinucchi sandwich and now I have a new favorite sandwich too!

The food at Bube's Brewery is amazing and I highly recommend the toasted pinucchi sandwich

The brewery boasts four restaurants. Lunch, including the amazing toasted pinucchi sandwich, is served at the Bottling Works. The Bottling Works Restaurant open seven days a week for lunch and dinnerĀ is located in the original bottling plant. Seasonally, the Biergarten is open and offers a relaxing space to dine and enjoy a few beers.

Alois is another restaurant at Bube’s Brewery. LocatedĀ in the original Victorian Hotel portion of the tavern, it provides the perfect back drop for the weekly Murder Mystery Dinners. Murder mystery dinners are a blast and I hope to catch one at Bube’s someday.

The rooms at the tavern that is part of Bube's Brewery are individually themed and very well decorated

I would have a difficult time choosing just one dinner experience to have at Bube’s and I am convinced that each one would be amazing. Speaking of difficult choices, during my tour I learned that Bube’s Brewery still operates as a hotel and was able to see all of the accommodations offered. Picking a room would be a very difficult choice. Every room is themed and elaborated decorated according to its theme. When you enter one of the rooms it is like stepping into another world.

Bube's Brewery is the oldest and maybe the only original 19th century brewery preserved and still operating as both a brewery and tavern in the eastern United States

The decision to visit Bube’s Brewery is easy. You simply have to stop in for a tour, a pint, or to spend the night. It is definitely the most unique and interesting brewery I have ever visited.
