Father's Day in Berks County Pennsylvania
For the upcoming June zine we're gonna celebrate Father's day. As we climb the mountains in Berks and Schuylkill county, we'll show you some Outta the Way places every Dad would enjoy. First we'll take you to a sporting goods store that's sure to impress any outdoorsman. Even if Dad's not a hunter, he's sure to be impressed by all the animals on display, and by what I can only describe as a hierarchy to taxidermy. With deer mounts surrounding the walls, some as massive as 30 point deer. They are certainly see to believe.
Afterwards we'll climb higher into the mountains to a sanctuary specializing in raptors of all sizes. Overlooking the beautiful vistas of the mountain you'll be spotting hawks, eagles, and other large birds of prey. Besides being a conservation area for these magnificent birds, the area also has quite a horrid past. Even if your father enjoys ghost hunting this is a place you'll wanna visit.
Finally we'll stroll up into Schuylkill county and visit America's oldest brewery. Here Dad can take a tour of this historic beer making facility and learn how this wonderful beverage is made. Later he can wet his palette with their variety of free samples, even Root beer if so desired. All this should make for a great outta the way day for Dad and the entire family. So get outta our way, we're going Outta the Way!
