Visit Bucks County is promoting the newest beer in its lineup for the Ale Trail. Bensalem’s Broken Goblet & Naked Brewing Company collaborated to create a brew called, “How Do You Like Them Apples.”

VBC President Paul Bencivengo is making rounds to promoted the newly developed beverage. He joined Mike Schiller from the Galzerano Funeral Home on WBCB 1490 Monday to talk about all things Bucks.

“Broken Goblet just moved into some new space down by State Road in Bensalem,” Bencivengo said. “The apples are from Snipes. It’s a dark beer, called a an apple grav.”

Bencivengo said the growing brewery industry in Bucks could help with holiday shopping. Even if someone doesn’t like beer themselves, it could make for a wonderful gift for someone else.

“You can get it at Broken Goblet, and some of the other local beer distributors as well,” he said. “We’ve got more than 20 local breweries in the county now. The craft beer scene in Pennsylvania has really exploded.”

And with Christmas right around the corner, many people are looking for activities to get them in the holiday spirit. As the official tourism promotional agency for Bucks, VBC has plenty of suggestions.

Famous through the region, New Hope earned the 6th spot on Country Living Magazine’s list of the “55 Best Christmas Towns That You Need To Visit This Holiday Season.” The Borough’s North Pole Express tilted the scales and made a lasting impression on the judges.
