Try Buckeye Lake Brewery For Unique Beer

I enjoy a beer or three occasionally like most, but I have not tried a micro-brewery like The Buckeye Lake Brewery until recently. It was a fun experience and I’ve been back a few times to get my growler refilled. 

They offer a range of different types of beer from pale to dark and everything in between. My favorite is their Irish beer. There is a sampler to try them all. They sell beer in 1/2 pint, pint, 20 ounce, and a 64 ounce “growler”. The growler is a jug that you can take home and bring back to be refilled later.

The different sizes are a plus. You can stop buy and have a 1/2 pint if you don’t want to get intoxicated and enjoy one of their fine sandwiches, then have the growler to take home to have a few more.

I found the employees to be friendly folks happy to answer any questions and they take pride in their product and service. If you’re a beer drinker, stop by and support a local business.

The Blackhand Gorge Nature Preserve East Of Newark, Ohio.

Entrance To The Blackhand Gorge State Nature Preserve Near Newark, Ohio

The Blackhand Gorge Nature Preserve just 8 miles east of Newark, Ohio is a nice place to ride bicycles, hike, birdwatch, or just relax and take in some natural scenery. The trails are close to the Licking River with some hilly paths to hike off of the main main bicycle path.

Be careful when biking as the trail has fallen into a slight state of needing repair. Also, take note of the park’s rules because some are not obvious. For example, if your child picks a few wildflowers, that could be a costly fine. Law enforcement is heavy looking for these minor infractions at times.

Except for the potholes, the trail is a safer one for very young bicyclists so long as they have adult supervision.

Chopper Bob's Motorcycle Tire And Lube And Jugz Tavern In Newark, Ohio

It’s an unusual combanation, Newark, Ohio’s Chopper Bob’s Motorcycle Tire And Lube and Jugz Taverm is a place where you can get maintenance done to a motorcycle while you get a drink and eat at the same time. I have not visited yet, so I’m not sure if they only do Harley-Davidson work or if other brands are services as well. There is more information and a full schedule of entertainment events on their website.

Newark’s motorcycle community is huge and I’ve often wondered why we don’t have more motorcycle repair shops. Many riders go to Mount Vernon Mid-Ohio Suzuki/Honda, The Iron Pony on the east side of Columbus, or other out-of-town shops. It’s great to see a business in Newark and the unique setup is interesting too.
