 Straub Brewery Launches 2016 Straub Legacy Sampler

Throughout October and November, Straub Brewery is launching its 2016 Straub Legacy Sampler, featuring an all-star lineup of four popular craft beers: 1872 Lager, Helles, Dunkel, and Doppelbock. The limited-release Legacy Sampler is available throughout Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio while supplies last. “Straub’s Legacy Sampler is one of our best examples of local handcrafted brewing,” said Straub Brewery President and CEO William Brock. “Given the time of year, our Legacy Sampler craft beers fit the Straub lifestyle: the 1872 Lager is perfect after a long Saturday afternoon in the woods with the dogs; or the Helles while spending time with friends, watching the game or just catching up; and the Dunkel would be my choice while perched on a bar stool at the local tavern after work, especially as the evenings get shorter and cooler. And I always look forward to slow sips of Doppelbock after dinner, sitting by my fire at home.”
