Beer Recommendation: Poor Richard's Spruce Ale

One of the very interesting selections of beer from Yards Brewing Company in Philadelphia is Poor Richard's Spruce Ale. This might be the perfect ale to take on a camping trip. Click on the link to reach the website. Drink responsibly: 5% Alc. by Vol.

Based on Benjamin Franklin’s original recipe, this one-of-a-kind deep amber ale calls for barley, molasses and essence of spruce. Locally sourced organic blue spruce clippings are steeped in a kettle to create an ale as approachable and engaging as the man himself.

After working outside in the hot sun this morning, a cold ale would hit the spot.  Poor Richards it is.

Larry likes to have a beer once in a while, but he will usually stick to the commercial brands that have been around for ages.

Hello Roy Kelley, not much of a ale drinker but will try it once and see what I like it or not.

I'm sure the ale is fine, Roy.  But, the picture of the orchids is pretty amazing!
