Swover Creek Farms

Review by: Roadfood Team

Swover Creek Farms is well off the beaten path, but many make the trip to sample some of the best homemade sausages and beer for miles.

A couple that rode bikes for miles to check out Swover Creek greeted me as I pulled up. They were outside in all their gear, slugging back beer samples bracketed in a muffin tin.

What to eat at Swover Creek Farms

On the beer menu was a Hefeweizen, an India Pale Ale, a Pilsner Ale and an Oatmeal Porter. Out of the bunch, I liked the Oatmeal Porter the best. Nice and smooth and not as heavy as it looks, and that’s a good thing on a stinking hot day as it was.

You grab your beer and place your food order inside the very humble building. There is chicken salad and other things, but it’s the brats, kielbasa and chorizo that’s worth the haul. I got a spicy kielbasa on a homemade pretzel bun. Swover Creek also offers pepperoni rolls and straight up pretzels.

I sat outside and had a great view of the pick your own fields of blackberries. Lots of people were stopping by to do just that. I also got to say hi to a sweet Basset hound, busy roaming the property looking for leftovers.

The spicy kielbasa was a beauty. It wasn’t so spicy my mouth burned, but you could see the red pepper liberally sprinkled through. What a crunch I got on biting in, too. They were very proud of their homemade condiments and I don’t blame them. The mustard has a lovely kick of horseradish and the sweet relish was fantastic! I ended up eating a forkful. The pretzel bun wasn’t the heavy sort of street pretzel set-up many of us are used to. This is lighter with just a subtle punch of salt.

Swover Creek Farms is always expanding and new brews and sausages are always in the works. I wish I could have tried the Black Raspberry American Wheat, made with the farm’s berries. If you’re hitting the road for the long haul, there is also homemade fruit bread, frozen meat products and of course, berries to take take home.

I felt comatose after slugging down the beer, the kielbasa and sitting in the sunlight. All that must be energy food, though, because the cycling couple looked refreshed and ready to attack another 50 miles or so.
