I like Champs because they offer a decent selection. There are other bars in the area with a larger selection of harder to find beers, but Champs usually has some pretty interesting offerings on tap, like Green Flash or Founders, and they seem to have a good rotation. It's a sports bar, so the atmosphere is about what you'd expect, as is the food. They do have a nice deck for outdoor seating, as well.

probably the best draft selection in town. The place is large so you can always get a seat and with 40+ selections on draft there is always something great. Whomever selects their beers does an amazing job in having a great variety and always several new or special selections.

My go to bar in State College. Great rotating beer selection with lots of my staples, as well (Bell's 2 hearted, Troegs Perpetual, Founders). With 45 taps, there will be a beer here that you'll like. Lots of tvs for watching sporting events. Good atmosphere. Nice deck seating for the warmer months. Good food. Great happy hour weeks days 5-7 (1/2 price drafts).

With 45 great drafts, whether you're looking for a blue ribbon beer to watch the game with your boys(or gals),a good smoked black lager/bourbon aged stout to pair with a generous cut ribeye, or if you just want to contemplate dogfish head's latest concoction in front of the fire with your buds.. Champ's is the place to be since the renovation. About two years ago they went from 21 to 45 beers on tap with all stars like Delirium Tremens, DFH 120, KBS, Rodenbach Gran Cru, and more! Victory, Avery, Troegs, Southern Tier, DFH, and Sly Fox are amongst the regular rotated big hitters. The menu changes almost every week and can be found on www.champssportsgrill.net along with a great Italian based food menu that you don't find at regular sports bars. After you've finished dinner don't forget to visit Lou's stickroom downstairs for the best pool tables in the area, shuffle board, and cigars. Last but not least get your Champ's Growler filled to-go(they will fill other growlers) Located an hour and a half from Harrisburg, 15 minutes off route 99,also accessible by 322, or 80.
