Celebrate Christmas in the country at ‘Christmas on the Bridges’ December 4, 2016 while you enjoy beer from the Inn, Farmhouse, and Brewing Co. at Turkey Hill. The Columbia County Covered Bridge Association marks the holiday season with hayrides at the Twin Bridges, food, and drink. W. C. Pennington built the Twin Bridges over Huntington Creek for only $720 in 1884. Both the East Paden (Queen truss) bridge and the West Paden (Burr truss) bridge are named in honor of John Paden, owner of a nearby sawmill.
At the Twin Bridges, you can enjoy the decorations while you warm up by fire-pits with ham and bean soup and homemade baked goods for sale. Then hop aboard a hay wagon for a ride with Santa to the Josiah Hess (or Laubach) Bridge, where Beer and Wine Tasting with food pairings and crafts by local artisans await you. Don’t miss Turkey Hill Brewing Co., which will feature two beers and their buffalo chicken dip. In addition to Turkey Hill’s fare, you can enjoy samples from Freas Farm Winery, Winterland Winery, Pickering Winery, Forks Farm Market, Memory Makers Catering and Penn Valley Cheese.
So when you’re reserving your pre-Christmas getaway to the Valleys of the Susquehanna, plan to sample the Inn’s brews while you celebrate Christmas on the Bridges in the brisk country air, knowing that a cozy evening in the Brew Pub can await your return to the Inn.
