Early Christmas present for the BBC. Countless hours and the hard work of many got us to this point. Looking forward to moving into our new home very soon! Cheers BBC!

I’m excited to show off the new label for breaker Brewing Lunch Pail Ale. This beer has been a perennial favorite on draft in NEPA and now it’s coming to 22oz bottles. Lunch Pail is 42 IBU and 5.5% ABV so as the label says it is certainly a hop-forward Pale Ale, and an easy drinker as well.

Here’s a new brew from our pals Mark Lehman & Chris Miller @ Breaker Brewing Co called Phoebe Snow White IPA. I enjoyed this new brew just last night on draft so I’m excited to see it hitting bottles. This beer is not only an interesting new style, but also a classic brew right out of the gates. Phoebe Snow has a “brightness” that really pronounces the hop character and accentuates the dry-hopping and yes it’s 61 IBU and 6.5% ABV. If you want hops and sessionable ABV, this is the beer for you.

Back in March 2011 we covered the story of Breaker Brewing Co.’s move to their new property at the former St Joseph’s Monastery property at 783 E Northampton St in Wilkes-Barre Twp. You can take a peek back at the original story, the zoning story (here or here) and the zoning results. While the zoning was unanimously APPROVED at that time by the Wilkes-Barre Twp. zoning board, one nearby neighbor, Edward Collum chose to appeal the zoning results.
At the recent appeal hearing, the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas judge David Lupas remanded the order back to the Wilkes-Barre Zoning Hearing board for any further testimony as to why it is not feasible to use the property as residential.
LOTS of interesting details here, but what you need to know is that on Feb 14th at 7PM at the Wilkes-Barre Twp. municipal building (150 Watson St. MAP/Directions) the zoning board will again hear further testimony on the approval of their 11-month old zoning APPROVAL.
What you also need to know is that while neighbor Edward Collum claimed in the original hearing that his home was 4-feet from what would be the brewery building, a subsequent survey shows it is actually 40-feet. As if all of this isn’t enough to get you to come out and show support for this hearing and for Breaker Brewing there’s one more piece of information you should know. Edward Collum has since SOLD HIS HOUSE AND MOVED yet he has chosen to continue the appeal of the zoning approval…
On a personal note it’s very frustrating to see one FORMER-resident causing these sort of delays and expenses for everyone. Breaker Brewing Co is a wonderful addition to the Wilkes-Barre Twp. community, and I’m disappointed to see this process going on again. On a related note and as testament to how involved Mark & Chris already are in their new community, the guys are donating the beer for the Benefit for Lila to be held this Saturday at the Wilkes-Barre Twp. Fire Hall.
Please take the time to come out and show your love for Breaker Brewing on 2/14 AND for the Benefit for Lila on 2/11 as well.
