Beer Review – 16 Mile Harvest Ale


16 Mile Harvest Ale

On a recent trip to Roger Wilco (the old Wine Warehouse in Voorhees), I picked up a mixed six with a number of beers from local brewers. The first of those beers was the Inlet India Pale Ale from 16 Mile. The second was the Amber Sun Ale. The third was the Harvest Ale. I selected the 16 Mile “sampler” as a result of my prior experience with the Old Court Ale. I thought the Old Court was a good beer and when I saw the opportunity to pick up three more of 16 Mile’s offerings, I jumped at the chance.  16 Mile is a brewer in Georgetown, DE that takes its name from an old nickname for the area. Georgetown was thought to be so centrally located that it was said to be “16 miles from anywhere” in the state. The brewery has been around for about 3 years and currently has six beers in its lineup.

On a recent trip to Roger Wilco (the old Wine Warehouse in Voorhees), I picked up a mixed six with a number of beers from local brewers. The first of those beers was the Inlet India Pale Ale from 16 Mile. I selected the Inlet IPA (and the Amber Sun Ale) as a result of my prior experience with the Old Court Ale.

Beer Review – 16 Mile Old Court Ale


Looking for something different, I ventured into VG Liquors in Lawnside, NJ and found the Old Court Ale (a dark pale ale) among several offerings from the 16 Mile Brewery. 16 Mile, a brewer in Georgetown, DE takes its name from an old nickname for the area that was so centrally located that it was said to be “16 miles from anywhere” in the state. The brewery’s owners, Brett McCrea (with a background in counter terrorism) and Chad Campbell (with a background in banking, real estate and teaching science) decided to leave their careers in the DC area and return to Sussex County. They had reasoned that it was the perfect place to raise their families and embark on a second act (what G-LO likes to call Life 2.0) that would capitalize on their somewhat unique experience and provide an outlet for their passion for great beer.
