North Country Brewing & Moraine State Park

This afternoon I drove over to Slippery Rock, PA and had lunch at the North Country Brewing Co.  This was my first visit here and I was very impressed.  The food was delicious and their beer was just as good.  I enjoyed their portabello “shroomben”, which is a grilled rye bread sandwich topped with grilled portabellas, sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and homemade Russian dressing.  As for beers, I had the Paleo IPA, Buck Snort Stout, and their cask ale selection. 

After lunch my brother, sister, and I then headed over to Moraine State Park for 2+ hours of hiking.  This was also my first visit to this park and I was very happy with what I saw – a large lake surrounded by 20+ miles of beautiful trails.  We hiked on the North Country Trail which is blue blazed just like the Buckeye Trail, has nice bridges, technical terrain, and some scenic views.  Can’t wait to come back to this park again for a run!

I have not been to the brewery. I will have to try it next time I am up in that part of the country.
