I wanted to check out a brewery on the Cumberland Valley Beer Trail, and Roy Pitz is the southernmost stop, which worked out since I was staying in West Virginia for a couple weeks.
I made the stop on my way back from Gettysburg (which is a whole other, amazing story on its own). While I didn't plan on staying for long since I needed to get back to my hotel, I did want to try a variety of their beers. Julie, an amazingly helpful, friendly, and fun bartender, came right to my service with suggestions based on what I said I did and did not like. I ended up getting a flight (sample sizes of 4 different beers). What I really liked about the flight was that it comes with a "grading" sheet for each pour. Based on what we (the customers) put, I would hope that this sheet is used to assess each beer and make improvements where needed.
After conversation with Julie, she was quick to offer me other beers that weren't part of my flight in order for me to see the variety they offer along with the different versions of some of their staples. For example, I wasn't a huge fan of their sour beer (Sour Hound), but when she offered me their "Cherry Hound", I loved it.
I travel to the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia occasionally for work, and while WV doesn't excite me much, Roy Pitz, which is only about 45 minutes up I-81 from Martinsburg, does. I'll return the next time I head east.
