The week is coming to a close and summer sun still hangs high in the sky. Warm weather continues to blaze through West Chester and, although cozy, makes for an intense heatwave.

The cure? Cocktails, wine, and beer, of course! 

You don't have to look very far to find refreshing beverages ready to quench your thirst and tantalize your taste buds. Here are 4 places to try.


Iron Hill

We're down to toast to the summer heat with friends at Iron Hill. A giant array of beers await you. Some of our favorite signature Iron Hill selections are the White Iron Wit (pale, unfiltered Belgian-style wheat beer, light-bodies and very refreshing. Features a complex orange and spice flavors) and the Pig Iron Porter (a classic porter, dark and full of roasted malt flavor. Chocolate notes are well balanced with a slight bitterness). But don't stop there--with many other signature beers, canned and bottled beers, and plenty on tap, Iron Hill has the brew to satisfy you. 


Penns Woods Winery

We can't get enough of Penns Woods Wines. From chardonnay to moscato, this is your destination for everything you need to find your perfect selection. We absolutely love the Traminette 2016 white wine--double gold medal winner at the 2016 Finger Lakes International Wine competition. It's easy to drink yet complex, with a wonderful finish. The sweet smell of honey and lemon zest gives way to a crisp finish that has us ready for more. But with hard cider, rose wines, and red wines too, you'll be sure to go home with the best of the best!


The Gables at Chadds Ford

What's more satisfying on a hot day than a refreshing mojito? At The Gables at Chadds Ford you can try some delicious cocktails ready to give some much-needed 'chill' into your day. Try the Peach & Berry Sangria or the Gingered Lemon & Lime Martini for a fruity burst of flavor. Or go for dessert with the Carmel Macchiato cocktail or the Chocolate Martini. One of our favorites is The "Papa Dino" cocktail: traditional Manhattan made with top shelf bourbon, sweet vermouth & angostura bitters, aged in an oak barrel for over 4 weeks!


The Whip Tavern

The beer is here! The Whip Tavern is full of wonderful brew selections including various imports, large format bottles of IPA, UK bottles, American craft bottles, and draughts. On a hot summer day we love to sit back and try one of over 50 domestic and international beers and ciders that changes seasonally. There is always something new and featured making this a great place to indulge in your favorite or discover a completely new one. Frothy and fresh, these beers are ready for your weekend plans.
