Benford Brewing sells, subsequently kicks 1st keg


Lancaster-based nano brewery Benford Brewing hasn’t taken much time making a name for itself in the area (even if that name wasn’t one they originally planned on using).

Last Friday, Feb. 22, the first keg of Benford’s Old Hickory Brown Ale was delivered to Grinder’s, a bar and restaurant in Lancaster. According to owner Bryan O’Neal, it didn’t last long.

“Our first keg of Old Hickory Brown Ale was finished off within three business days at Grinder’s,” O’Neal wrote on Benford’s Facebook page. “More beer was picked up by the distributor yesterday to keep this going.”

O’Neal said he expects Old Hickory to be Benford’s flagship beer. That is, if it doesn’t run into any issues with the North Carolina-based Olde Hickory Brewery.

Up next for Benford? O’SOO (O’Neal’s Special Oatmeal Oyster) Stout and their seasonal Riverside Irish Red Ale in time for St. Patrick’s Day.
