Two Bells for Society Hill Society

scallops-society-hill-society-940

Craig LaBan enjoys much of what he eats from chef Yun Fuentes’s menu at Society Hill Society. In particular he enjoys brunch and the fresh Pilsner Urquel.

His ode to pierogi are delicate, their handmade sour cream dumpling skins stuffed with truffled mashed potatoes over molasses-sweetened Vidalia onion jam. He tapas-izes chicken pot pie, tucking a creamy velouté of leg meat, carrots, and peas into croquette sticks that would please even the toughest Amish Spaniard. His summer peach soup is simply a gazpacho-good tribute to ripe local summer fruit, the sweet pureed peaches tanged with a hint of vinegar and garlic, sparked with salty bits of shaved ham and tiny floating spheres of creamy goat cheese.

Two Bells – Very Good

While everyone else seems to be diving head-first into fall menus and brews, Victory Brewing Company  is announcing exciting news for Summer of 2015. Victory is adding a new canning line in their Parkesburg facility and has announced its aluminum debut. The first beer coming down the canning line will be the quaffable Summer Love Ale.

Victory is just the latest local brewery to get in on the canned beer craze. Sly Fox has been canning its beers for year and Troegs has recently added cans to its lineups. In fact, the Hershey based brewery is going to be putting its hugely popular Nugget Nectar in 12-ounce cans next year.
