What Do We Do With
All These Zucchinis??

 They’re everywhere. ON kitchen counters, workplace coffee counters, car seats, porches (floors and railings), roadside stands, piled high in grocery store produce areas, still in the field, and oh, nightmare of nightmares, still multiplying!

Out & About: Tattered Flag's Middletown debut at Kuppy's Diner

The partners of Tattered Flag Brewery & Still Works, the new brewery and distillery that will move into a renovated Elks Building next spring, presented their recipe for three of their beers at a tasting at Kuppy’s Diner on Sunday, Oct. 4.

The pale ale, amber beer and coffee stout that Tattered Flag will brew was paired with food from Kuppy’s to a curious crowd eager to get preview of what is to come.

The tasting drew people like Dr. Herb Henderson, a retired Middletown dentist, and Audra Henderson, his wife. He hasn’t had a beer since 1955, and the Tattered Flag sampling was her first beer. They love Middletown and were excited to see what the fledging brewery would bring to town.

Nick Chimienti, a Republican candidate for Dauphin County sheriff in the Nov. 3 general election, also attended. Bob Molly provided music.

Tickets sold for $5, and the proceeds were donated to the Furry Friends Network.
