The Kilpatrick Family

South Dakota


The Kilpatrick family enjoyed the Susquehanna River Valley Tour. The Collins Lock ruins was a particularly interesting stop. To make the day even better, Lancaster Brewing Company gave us an exclusive tasting of a sorghum stout aged in Jamaican Rum barrels!! Mr. Kilpatrick is the Executive Director of the Journey Museum:



Camp Hill Friends



Tattered Flag Brewery and Still Works teamed up with the Middletown Area Historical Society to give us a unique experience with local insight to the old Elks building history. Thanks Tony!



"Board Meeting"



A local farm-to-table restaurant and brewery offered a behind-the-scenes education on their custom brewing process. Thanks Jeff! New friends from Ohio enjoyed their Harrisburg tour. Thanks Rock and Bob! I had a great time. Also, do not miss the bourbon barrel stout... it is outstanding.

Cissel Family



The Moo-Duck Brewery gave us a great tour of their unique custom built brewing system. A few Jack Daniels bourbon barrels filled with beer sit waiting for the right time to be released. The vibe was mellow and good. The Cissel family had a great time and are planning another tour!



All About Beer



Kirsten arranged this custom tour that was all about the beer! Spring Gate Vinyards and Brewery was a lively way to enjoy the warm weather.



"Hotel MacGregor"

(Radium City) Ottowa, Illinois


This fun group enjoyed a personalized tour of Tattered Flag Brewery, guided by Pat Devlin, one of the owners. This tour gave us an exclusive peek into the complexities of making barrel aged, and sour beer. We got to sample beer wort from a group making beer on the Brew-Your-Own system! I learned alot about Radium City history from these folks. It was a great tour...



Living Life



New friends enjoyed their custom Harrisburg tour, and loved seeing inside the old Highspire Whiskey barrel storage facility! Very cool little hidden gem that you can get only with The Lost Pint... Thanks to Rich Lawson, owner of H. A. Hartman & Son Storage.

A really great day...

Mason-Dixon Line

Maryland and Pennsylvania


Friends from both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line enjoyed a tour of Harrisburg.



Ph.D's and MD's

New York


Discourse was diverse and lively with this group of "doctors" from New York. A bachelor celebration in honor of a new life for Evan. This was an interesting visit to the old Highspire Whiskey storehouse. We rode on a vintage Otis elevator that is 94 years old!

Finding Roots



Heading East to find roots in history that bind us together, rather than divide us apart. Great folks, and new friends, from California absolutely loved their Lost Pint tour. We enjoyed a history lesson at Fort Hunter from Jan Johnson of the PA Historical and Museum Commission. They actually found a Susquehannock spear point while we were having an educational discussion with Jan!



Swatara Woods



Great people sharing their lives and friendship with one another. The Miller family enjoyed learning about small town America, as we followed the Susquehanna River southward from Harrisburg to Steelton, Highspire to Falmouth. River towns reveal interesting aspects of the Pennsylvania experience. This journey added new friends to The Lost Pint community. Thank you Josh, Dawn, Marty, Dale, Wick and Lauren! I will be seeing you soon...



Friends Return



Friends return for a second tour with The Lost Pint! This time JoAnne chose the Appalachian Trail Tour. A great way to see the Susquehanna River Valley and find hidden gems, like the statue of liberty, perched upon a bridge peir at the Dauphin Narrows and The Doyle hostel. A short hike up Peter's Mountain rewarded us with a great vista of the river and the town of Duncannon.

Down The Rabbit Hole...

Iowa & South Dakota


These midwestern ladies had a blast touring the Susquehanna River Valley. They remarked about the colorful fall leaves, stone mansions along Front street, and the distillery warehouse in Highspire. Larson's Meadworks was enlightening. The next tour is already booked for next year... Thanks Jeanne and Michelle!

Locks & Bridges

Minneapolis, MN


Folks from Minnesota enjoyed the sun setting over historic Harrisburg's beautiful bridges.


You WILL Succeed!



Sometimes a "teacher" is humbled by his "students." This Civil War tour was a powerful reminder that community and friendship is critical to success. Hugh and his family reminded me that risk is inherent with all things in life, and to "walk the walk" is as critical to success as believing in oneself.

The Reset

Palmyra, Pennsylvania


The reset; inspiration to dig into new life changes. These great local folks have been added to The Lost Pint community. A custom tour of Harrisburg, Highspire, and Marietta ended at McCleary's Public House.



The Old Country



Folks from Ireland and Italy pose by the Rockville Bridge. This is the longest stone arch bridge in the world; about 1 mile long. These great folks enjoyed a Civil War tour.



 The Adventure

Baltimore and Virginia


These ladies wanted to celebrate an upcoming wedding. This was not your typical bachelorette party! Their wine tour started out sunny and calm. Then, things got warm and fuzzy with a champagne and whiskey toast! Finally, a snap of fluffy snow turned this tour into a real adventure with snow angels and slippy country roads...

Underground Railroad



Randolph Harris guided us through Columbia, Wrightsville and Lancaster to learn about the rich underground railroad history in our area. The peirs in the picture once supported the longest wooden covered bridge in the world. A Wrightsville militia set fire to it to keep Confederate soldiers from crossing into Columbia. We learned much about William Whipper, Thadeus Stevens, and the unique role that our area played during the exodus of Southern slaves and free men to the North.

The Return

Swatara Woods group returned for another adventure. The photo was taken at the Bull's Head, a traditinal English pub created by a Manchester native! We ended the night with Mead and axe throwing in Lancaster at Medulseld Meadery.
