Hop Knife Harvest Ale (6.8% ABV) an American IPA from Tröegs Brewing Co. in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
"Hop Knife Harvest Ale recognizes the tradition of hand-harvesting hops at their peak. Our HopCyclone process creates an inward spiral of hop dispersal during fermentation, releasing a bounty of citrus, resin and tropical aromas from the Cascade, Chinook and El Dorado hops while the Crystal, Pilsner and Vienna Malts balance this higher IBU IPA perfectly. #3 of 4 in our Hop Cycle seasonal series." - Tröegs
Spider Bite Beer Company was conceived back in 2008 by founders and friends Larry Goldstein and Anthony LiCausi after a summer of too many bug bites. Spider Bite has released a number of beers from the Pale Ale family, stouts, saisons and a very well received Wee Heavy. In their first year of business, Robert’s Spider Wee Heavy, coupled with their Eight Legged RyePA and Boris the Spider Russian Imperial Stout, earned them the 2012 FX Matt Memorial Cup for “Best Craft Brewery” in NY State.

About CBW (from their website):
Community Beer Works is Buffalo, NY's first nanobrewery. We began providing fresh, high quality, local beer in April 2012.
The founders of CBW all have roots in Buffalo and we want our brewery to be an integral part of our city and the neighborhood our brewery is located in. We are donating our spent grain to the Massachusetts Avene Project, disposing of it in an ecologically friendly, mutually beneficial manner, and are planning similar partnerships with other community organizations in the city.
Our goal is to foster a sense of community and place, enriching our hometown through the production of damn good beer.
On Tuesday, September 23, The Harpoon Road Trip Team will be making a stop at Donnelly's from 6:00-8:00pm with giveaways. We'll also be giving away Shiner Oktoberfest Steins while supplies last.
Plus we'll be featuring a $5 Fall Beer Flight:
• Harpoon Oktoberfest
• Harpoon Imperial Pumpkin
• Shiner Oktoberfest
• Jack-O Traveler Pumpkin Shandy
