Franklin County Breweries Collaboration Beer

Franklin County, PA— 11/30/2021 — This week, all the Franklin County breweries will release 1784, an Imperial Red Ale that was planned, brewed and packaged as a collaborative effort. GearHouse Brewing Co., TBC Brewing Co., Rough Edges Brewing, and 633 Brewing Co. all joined Roy-Pitz Brewing Co who hosted the collaborative brew at their Chambersburg brewery. The beer was created with the intention of each brewery committing to donate a portion of the proceeds to the establishment of a Franklin County Beer Trail. The hope is that the trail will promote educational and entertaining beer experiences for locals and tourists who visit the area.

The Beer

Winter is coming and this Imperial Red Ale will be a well-balanced beer to get you through the long, cold months. Named for the year that the county was formed, 1784 (8% ABV) uses all local East Coast malts from Proximity Malting and 100% PA hops from GEMS Hop Farm in Carlisle, PA. The brew is malt forward, with a hint of spiciness from the rye malt with herbal, tea, woodsy and pine hop aromas emerging as a result of the dry hop process. The label was designed to represent Benjamin Franklin, for whom our county was named along with our rolling mountains, the rich and warm colors of fall as well as the deliciously smooth red liquid inside.


1784 will be available in 16 oz. cans and on draft at each of the 5 collaborating breweries. Roy-Pitz Brewing Co. – 140 N Third St. Chambersburg, PA GearHouse Brewing Co. – 253 Grant St. Chambersburg, PA TBC Brewing Co. – 39 N Third St. Chambersburg, PA Rough Edges Brewing Co. – 91 W Main St. Waynesboro, PA 633 Brewing Co. – 118 Walnut St. Waynesboro, PA
