“Poured in PA: The Series” will feature breweries throughout the state including three from Lancaster County.
The series comes from GK Visual, a Harrisburg production company. The company also made “Poured in Pennsylvania” and “Brewed in the Burg,” both of which are full-length films about beer. Both projects received funding through the liquor control board to educate viewers and spur beer tourism in the state.
The series will be similar to the film, which came out in 2018. Episodes will focus on the people shaping the state’s craft beer industry, including brewers, festival organizers and beer influencers.
The first five episodes will be available to stream on YouTube Monday, June 1. St. Boniface Craft Brewing Co. in Ephrata is highlighted in one of the episodes. Future episodes will include Spring House Brewing Co. in Lancaster, Bube’s Brewery in Mount Joy and Lititz Craft Beer Fest says Sara Bozich, writer and producer at GK Visual. A release date has not been set.
The first block of episodes highlight Pittsburgh's Fresh Fest Beer Fest, the country's first black beer festival; Harrisburg's breweries; York breweries; breweries in the Poconos region and dog-friendly breweries.
Lancaster County makes an appearance in Episode 3 with a visit to St. Boniface's Bonifest.
Earlier, the production company reported the series would stream on Amazon Prime Video. That will happen "in the coming weeks" the company said Friday.
“Poured in Pennsylvania” the documentary, is also on Amazon Prime to stream. One of the brewers featured is Lancaster County's Carol Stoudt.
Here’s a trailer for the series. Lancaster County gets a shout-out at 0:06 with Dain Shirey, co-owner of St. Boniface.
