Seen Through A Glass is about drinks and food in central Pennsylvania, hosted by experienced drinks writer Lew Bryson. There are shows about particular products -- maple syrup, soft-serve ice cream, whiskey -- and about the attractions of individual towns: Lock Haven, Carlisle, Altoona. We do interviews, visit/reviews, and there’s always What I’m Drinking Today, a review of a beverage; might be whiskey, might be beer, might be coffee. Grab a slice and a glass and join us! The show accepts NO ...

Got some hot stuff for you! Friends warned us that food would be bland in central PA...but not all of it! I talked to two pepper product people; Beth Cowher, who makes her Backyard Flavors sandwich peppers in Aaronsburg, and Janet Robinson, who's been making her Piper's Peck products on the hill outside of Bellefonte since 1998. We talk Scoville un…

Do you like hazy IPAs? Do you hate hazy IPAs? I dug into this cloudy phenomenon with the help of New Trail Brewing partner and Director of Brewing Operations Mike LaRosa. It seemed to be a subject he had been waiting for someone to ask him about, and we went at it. We also talked about New Trail's amazing growth, their excellent big beers, the Cris…

I drank rye whiskey in the spiritual home of American rye whiskey, the Monongahela Valley, in the cradle of the Whiskey Rebellion, Washington, PA. I tell you about how the rebellion happened, and how it ended, and how rye whiskey came to southwestern PA. Rye whiskey historian Sam Komlenic joined me for a talk on rye whiskey at Liberty Pole Spirits,…

I interview Hector Cruz, the Floridian at the heart of the Foodies of State College Facebook group, 20,000 people who want to find the best places to eat in the greater State College area (pretty loosely defined, ask 'em anything). We talked about why he started it, how he runs it, and why everyone loves to fight about pizza and cheesesteaks. The F…

Grab your phone, your cooler, and your best bud, it's time to go beer hunting! I've been searching for good beers for 43 years. But I really got serious about it when a chance remark by a work friend sent me almost an hour away to the Front Street Pub, in Santa Cruz, the first brewpub I ever visited. It was magical, and I've been on a quest to have…

Mansfield is at the intersection of two great Pennsylvania highways, Routes 15 and 6. People pass through it every day...but I decided to stop. I got an interview with Jarrod York of Yorkholo Brewing, stopped at three coffee shops, got two lunches, checked out a butcher, and did a little shopping. It's definitely worth stopping. Jarrod told me at o…

It's fish fry time, and that means Fish Fry Friday! I love fish fries! The crisp crust of fried haddock, the tender flake of baked cod, and the banquet of side dishes -- french fries, mac & cheese, cole slaw, stewed tomatoes! -- and a sweet delight at the end. It's even better when it's a community meal, served by volunteers and enjoyed at long tab…

We Are! Meat Lab! Centre County folks know that Penn State drives central Pennsylvania, but some of us also know that Penn State's Butcher Block is the outlet for the school's Meat Lab, where students learn animal husbandry, butchering, meat processing (we'll talk about that difference), and even how to wrap a fresh piece of meat. I talked to Dr. J…

Mass beer hysteria! I wanted to get more beer content in the podcast, so I invited The Beer Thrillers! Ben Kline, Amy Wolfe, and Josh Doncevic write The Beer Thrillers blog, which is...mostly about beer in Central PA, but they do book reviews (and not just beer books), beer trips well outside the area, and...well, a lot of stuff. We got together at…

Reminder: we'll be off until December 16th, when the show returns for a second season, starting with the Holiday show. Hanover may have thought it was a frontier town, a market town, a transportation hub. But the peckish German-Americans who populated it in the late 1800s and early 1900s knew better. Their ovens and kettles, and a vague hunger betw…

That's right: I said Colorado rye whiskey! One of the most exciting developments in American whiskey making was the recent rediscovery of a forgotten part of our past: the three chamber still. It's completely unlike any other type of still, and it was used by most American rye distillers as recently as 110 years ago. Then it disappeared. But it's b…

Carlisle was once a military outpost on the frontier of the British Empire, founded in 1751 and home to the Carlisle Barracks, now the second-oldest continually active military post in the US (suck it, England!). But that's not why we're here! I walked all over the center of Carlisle, visiting 4 breweries, a cider bar, a distillery pub, a cocktail …

We took the portable podcast gear on the road to the western mountains of North Carolina. Cathy and I are in Ashe County for two weeks, and I went a bit nuts with interviews: two brewers, a cheesemaker, a mad sausage maker, and one of our favorite cider makers.

Lock Haven is a classic Susquehanna river town, with a history based in lumber and industry. It's also the largest town in central Pennsylvania that doesn't have a brewery, or any kind of booze producer. What it does have is two pioneering beer bars, the Old Corner Grill and the Broken Axe. I interviewed the owners of both places, and then wandered…
