Bucks Food Calendar: June 25, 2014

Another lovely June weekend is coming up! Celebrate Sam Adams, tour a local lavender farm, pick some strawberries, shop a local farmers market, or nibble and sip overlooking the Delaware at one of the area’s oldest inns.

Happy Birthday, Sam Adams! Isaac Newton’s, Newtown’s great craft beer bar and restaurant, is celebrating Samuel Adams’ 30th birthday (the pioneer craft beer company, not the man) with an event this Saturday, 30 for 30 (plus 2!) with Samuel Adams! For the first time in the bar’s history, every tap in the house will feature a Sam Adams beer, including many rare and limited edition beers. They will be tapping a minimum of 32 Sam Adams beers throughout the day including a cask-conditioned ale.

Sam AdamsWhy 32 beers? Well, 30 is to honor Sam Adams while the ‘plus 2’ will allow Isaac Newton’s to be largest Tap Takeover in Sam Adams history. The festivities kick off at 11:30 am and continue throughout the day. There will be free giveaways and special menu items including Beer-braised Brats with Boston Lager and a Brisket Sandwich with Nitro Stout. For more information, and to see the confirmed drafts and tappings, click here.

In the category of “Has it really been that long?” the Black Bass Hotel in Lumberville is culminating a month of celebrating their 5th anniversary since reopening the famous restaurant and inn. The special meal Monday evening is a $25 prix fixe and includes artisan fruit and cheese, crudités, Mediterranean antipasto and tossed salad; small plate entrees like Chicken, shrimp and Andouille sausage jambalaya, Molasses and rum-painted salmon, Crispy risotto balls with gorgonzola cheese and a selection of popular Bass Sliders, finishing with a dessert buffet. Cocktails and drinks will only be $5. The fun begins at 5:30 pm. For more details see their website.

Peace Valley Farm harvestOn Wednesday, join the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance at their second summer farm tour of the season at Peace Valley Lavender Farm in Doylestown. George and Patty Lyons began growing lavender on the old farmstead in 2001. They raise several varieties of English lavender and lavandins (natural hybrids of English and spike lavender). On the day of the farm tour, they expect many of their more than 3,000 plants to be in bloom, coloring and perfuming the farm’s south-facing hillside. The potluck begins at 6 pm, with the tour following at 7 pm. You’ll also be able to purchase growing plants, bulk blossoms, dried bunches, essential oil, bath & body products, pillows and sachets, herbal products for the kitchen and more. For more information, click here.

The Berry Report. Manoff Market Gardens will be open through Saturday, June 28 from 9 am to 12 pm for pick-your-own strawberries only. Then they will reopen in mid- to late-July with their lovely peaches. This is your last chance to fill your freezer with local strawberries! See our post, Pick-your-own strawberries in Bucks, for a list of all local farms where you can pick your own.

And, finally, Solebury Orchards opens for the season on Thursday, July 3. Because of the late and cool spring, they are a little later opening than usual. The good news is the blueberry crop looks great and will last into mid-August, with peak being mid-July. Apricots are coming in nicely, available through July, and peaches are looking good, hopefully to arrive in mid- to late-July. The bad news is that their cherries are not coming in this year due to the blossoms damaged in a freeze. Watch their website for up-to-date news on crops and when to pick-your-own.
