We make 25 flavors of Vodka, Regular Vodka, 100-proof Vodka, White Rum, Spiced Rum, Beer Barrel Rum, Gin and Cinnamon Whiskey which are all available on our huge drink menu and in 750ml bottles to-go.

We also carry a large selection of Pennsylvania beer and have a small food menu, including mixed drinks to go!

Dead Lightning Distillery was started to preserve the memory of Skyler Montgomery who became a moonshiner at the age of 18. He was a gentle giant at 6' 7" tall and unfortunately passed away a few months after his 21st birthday.  He was a best friend to many, a great big brother and an overly generous, good hearted person. His passing was a tragic loss for those that knew him. 

We named our distillery after Skyler's love of The Grateful Dead as well as moonshine, known as white lightning. 

Stop in and raise a glass to Skyler and get the full story of our distillery!  May his "SPIRITS" live on!
