The world-renowned travel guide.. Zagat is encouraging people to visit part of our region. The publication just put out "Ten Reasons to Drive to the Poconos this Summer." The Shawnee Craft Brewery at the Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort was one of them.

   The brewery is known for crafting beer with local and organic ingredients. It's currently featuring a raspberry beer. In the fall you can get pumpkin ale made with pumpkins grown right on the property.

  Jason Startari - Shawnee Craft Brewery Manager told Eyewitness News"When you come to Shawnee being able to drink a beer that was brewed right here on the property rounds out the whole Shawnee experience."

 Other businesses include Whitewater Adventures and the Deer Head Inn. Comptons Pancake House in Stroudsburg also got some attention. Zagat specifially highlighted the restaurant's Hawaiian stack of pancakes.
