Destinations / North America

In Gettysburg to explore the city’s historic side? Don’t miss out on the all-American destination’s amazing drink culture as well. Adams County is exploding with great, locally owned small breweries, cideries, wineries and more.


Jack’s Hard Cider

Perched atop a hill in rural Adams County, Jack’s Hard Cider is a destination not only for its views, but also for its amazing selection of ciders. Choose from more traditional pours, or go for something a little more unique and inventive, with the brand’s limited releases. If the weather is nice, sip on a glass or two on the expansive terrace. If not, you can still enjoy great scenic panoramas from the glass-enclosed tasting room.


Boyer Cellars

Boyer Cellars sits in the midst of the much larger Boyer Nurseries & Orchards. While the orchard is known for its amazing pick-your-own selection that’s attracted families from major cities as far away as Washington, D.C., for decades. It recently added the Boyer Cellars tasting room that offers hard cider and wine tastings, along with fun events and live music.


Thirsty Farmer Brew Works

This new small brewery is just a short distance from Jack’s Hard Cider and Boyer Cellars, making it an easy stop if you want to visit a few local producers in one afternoon. Thirsty Farmer Brew Works serves amazing brews (you can literally see the hops growing from your table!) and ciders, alongside a menu of yummy, casual eats. Grab a seat on the covered deck for views of pristine, rural Pennsylvania.


Mason Dixon Distillery

Mason Dixon Distillery grows the grains for its array of spirits right on the Gettysburg Battlefield, giving your drinks a little taste of history. The distillery’s tasting room is also located in downtown Gettysburg (in a repurposed furniture factory), making it a great pick if you want to walk from your hotel to dinner and drinks. Craft cocktails are specially created to allow the spirit to shine, rather than drown out the taste of the alcohol, so it’s a perfect stop for spirit connoisseurs.


Battlefield Brew Works and Spirits of Gettysburg

If you and your traveling companions can’t agree on whether you want to taste some local beers or spirits, why not go to a tasting room that offers some of the best of both? Battlefield Brew Works and Spirits of Gettysburg is just a short drive from downtown. It offers small-batch beers (with nine rotating on tap) alongside an array of spirits. In fact, Spirits of Gettysburg Distillery is the first licensed distillery in Gettysburg since prohibition. The historic setting of Montfort Farm was used as a Confederate field hospital following the battle.
