Ryan “Roy” Richards of Liquid Art Brewing Company will be serving their Daddy Fat Sacks IPA and Seasonal Gobbler Marzen Lager. According to Richards, “These are the two recipes we started out with early on in our homebrewing days.”

Roy-Pitz began transitioning the branding of the brewery, its restaurant’s, and its beers to the new name of Liquid Art Brewing Company. There has been no change in the ownership, structure, products, or services, or their people, but just the new branding, logos, and their name. More details about their new name and future can be found on their website www.liquidartbrewingcompany.com.

“We have been able to fine tune and tweak both recipes over 15 years to get the flavors and aromas of the finished product exactly how we imagined.”  Richards said.

Sam Thrush, president of Downtown Chambersburg Inc., said Sip & Stroll gives our local community a chance to experience what downtown has to offer while featuring local breweries.

“Our local beverage industry has some of the best across the entire region and we are happy that we can continue our relationships with these companies.” Thrush said of this weekend’s event which is being presented by The Stacy Mellott Group with RE/MAX 1st Advantage.

“Our local community loves being a part of this event.” Thrush noted. “It gives people a taste not only for regionally made beverages, but local businesses who open their doors for the event.” Milk Bath, Lotus Moon Yoga and Gallery, and the new location of Hammer and Stain are just a few of the local businesses that will be hosting beverages.

“We are always happy to have this event because not only does it showcase our storefronts, but it shines a light on local and regional beer here in Franklin County and surrounding areas.” Thrush added.
