Recently we got together with good friends who are huge microbrew beer fanatics, so my wife and I thought it would be fun to tour some of the area brew pubs in the area along the Schuylkill River in Berks and Chester County Pennsylvania. Our first stop was the Hidden River Brewing Company in Douglasville, Pennsylvania. Hidden River is located along Route 724 just across from the Schuylkill River in the old Brintion's Lodge, a 300 year old farmhouse in Berks County. The beer list was quite good and they offer a fairly decent food menu. During nice weather, they also have a great outdoor deck.
