The quality of the beer at the Bullfrog is excellent, and very creative. Their IPA has a lot of nice flavor, and probably the best IPA that I have had the pleasure of drinking in a brew pub. They have a great selection to choose from, but I stuck with the IPA because it was so good. The food is very, very good and creative as well. The night I was there they had an acoustic music group that really added to the already cool atmosphere. The bartender at the Bullfrog was very knowledgeable and is largely responsible for turning me on to Beer Advocate. This place is worth stopping in for a beer or two or three.

This place is our family favorite of all the breweries within 100 miles!! The beer is outstanding to me as they fit my palate well. The Edgar IPA is my favorite of them all!! Of all the brewery's I have been to, to many to count, this IPA is in my top three. The Edgar IPA is equal to Newport Beach Brewery's IPA. Both outstanding!! Food is always good here as they use local grown product for the most part. It is worth the 3hr round trip to visit Bullfrog!! To me, a must stop place for all you hop heads if you are in the area.

The Mighty Bullfrog! Home of the funkiest beers north of the Susquehanna. This is a classic, small-town brewpub. Reminds me of Jackie O's in Athens, Ohio, but dirtier.

It smells like a brewery right as you go past the door. The tanks behind the bar are cool, and there are hippies everywhere. We were there on a Friday night and they had live music. Pretty good band, but kind of annoying too. I'm here for the beer!

10 taps: Baltic Porter with sour cherries, IPA, Stout, Funny Farmhouse Cider, Red Ale, Aggro Wheat, Sacre Blue, Old Gold, Farmhouse Apricot... of course you expect more from this renowned brewery. I guess I wanted to walk in to 25 taps and a million different sours, plus bottles. But... not too bad.

The Old Gold sour was stunning and hit all the right notes.

Will I come back? Yes, next time I am in the area. Would I make a significant detour to visit Bullfrog? Probably not, considering their beers are distributed on draft in Philadelphia...

Great food. Very fair proportions and booming with flavor. A good variety of styles, but some hoppy beers were kicked. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. A couple beers were run of the mill, a few were very good, but nothing distasteful. Overall a very cool vibe; sweet custom made bar top earing trays, handcarved tap handles, cool decor / plant life, and crankin dead tunes all day. Great spot.

The exterior is rather unassuming, but the brew kettle is immediately visible to let you know that you have found the right spot. The bar is small, maybe 12 seats, with a full row of fermenters working in the back. I believe I counted 12 taps and there were 9 different beers available during my visit. All beers were available for growler fills. Unfortunately, I do not believe any bottled beers were available for on-site consumption or take out. The food was great, fresh, and very well matched to their beers. The staff were friendly and courteous without becoming over-bearing.

Huge interior with tons of seating. Was here for the Grrrz release so it was a bit of a sh*tshow. Fairly decent number of tap lines, lots of sub-par beers.

Awesome that the owners are cool with opening it up for bottle shares during the Grrrz overnight camp.

I found this place through a happy accident while travelling home from visiting family. There was a live jazz band playing on the particular Sunday I went there. The beers this place brewed were very creative and bold, but well balanced. The bartenders gave nice tastes to help you decide what you wanted to drink. The burger I had was fantastic. I wish this brew pub were in my neighborhood.

Although the selection seemed great. The bartender was extremely difficult when i sent a beer back (which I almost never do). The beer was a saison which is my favourite style and i know it well. I would have been fine to write it off as an end of the keg issue but he he gave me a hard time. There was no head which means no belgian lace, hust a hint of citrus, no spiciness and no carbonation. I wouls have passed it off as one of those things but the bartender daid there was nothing wrong with it. Food was good but the arrogant attitude was too much.
