Decided to stop in at Brewhouse Grille for lunch with two co-workers since it is in such close proximity to our office. Upon entering, I immediately noticed the oddly shaped bar and multitude of taps… twenty in all! It was quite busy, so we found three vacant seats at the bar in front of the beer coolers and made ourselves at home.

There were two coolers with five shelves each packed to the gills with nothing but micros. The majority were US micros, including DFH, Blue Point, Flying Dog, Sierra Nevada, Sea Dog, Rogue, Stone, etc. with plenty of PA breweries represented, including Legacy, Troegs, Weyerbacher, Lancaster, ABC, Victory, and Stoudts. Their imports included Fullers, Chimay and some other Belgians, Boddingtons, etc.

I was quite impressed (and surprised) by their tap selection, which boasted twenty different beers, all of which were micros and imports save three reserved for Coors Lite, Miller Lite and Yuengling Lager. The micros on tap were as follows: Stone IPA, Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale, Blue Point Hoptical Illusion, Troegs Mad Elf, Rogue Dead Guy, DFH 60-min., Sierra Nevada Celebration and perhaps a few others. Their import offering included Frambroise Lambic, Smithwicks, Guinness, Harp, Stella, Franzi and Molson.

For lunch, I got a bacon cheddar burger with seasoned fries. The burger was average, but the fries were great. Our service was very good, and the bartender was quite knowledgeable about the various beers. However, it took forever to get our food, so they lose some points for that. One of the guys I was with got soup and a salad, and he got his salad after we were all served. I took at least 45 minutes to get our food. To drink, I had a Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale and a Chimay Blue. Both were very good, though I preferred the Bell’s (just a personal preference to hoppy ales over Belgians).

Overall, I was very impressed with their tap selection and the service was very good. The food was decent but it took way too long to get our food. It was quite crowded, smoky and noisy during our visit, but that’s understandable because it was during lunchtime. With all that said, I would still return for a few beers given the great selection of micros on tap and in bottles.

I have been to the Brewhouse lots of time since it is one of my moms favorite places to eat, as well as mine. The atmosphere is pretty good, just depends on where you are sitting. The inside area has a nice sized dining room with a medium sized attached bar area with a good amount of seating around it. The deck has a large seating area and an indoor/outdoor bar area. Both the inside and outside areas have lots of TV's and music playing to keep you entertained.

The quality has always been good. They serve most of the beers in the right type of glassware but every now and then you may get one in the wrong glass, mostly when a newer person serves it up. The food quality has always been good as well, with the ingredients always being fresh and flavorful. The service has always been pretty good but at times it can be a bit hit or miss. I have been in here when it gets a little crowded and we had to wait for quite some time to get our drinks refilled.

In the past few years they have really stepped up their selection. You won't find anything too "rare" on every given day but every now and then you might find a keg of KBS or something along those lines popping up here. On my last visit I had a Green Flash west coast IPA and, since they were having a Troegs event, a cask dead reckoning. The prices are pretty good across the board with only a few beers being overpriced.

The real reason I like to come here is the food. I could eat their fries all day, every day. I usually get a burger or a club sandwich and both are excellent. I have also had quite a few other things on the menu but those two are by far my favorites. Overall, if you are in the area and looking for a laid back place to have some good food and good beer, you should give this place a try.

I seem to go to Brewhouse about twice a month for dinner and beers with my wife. There has only been one time in maybe 2 years where they didn't have any beer on tap that excited me. They have something like 30 taps, and you can usually find beers like HopSlam, Nugget Nectar, and Stone Double Bastard (beers in this realm). These are right in my wheelhouse, and I always look forward to going to see what they have.
They have cask beer too, and beer on cask is inhumanly smooth and amazing regardless of what it is (wonder what Bud on cask would taste like? Yeah).
The service is stellar, the food is great. Downright great and reasonably priced. The back deck is huge and the bar area is bar-like (in a good way) and comfortable. The dining area has a family-dining vibe which is pretty dull, but to me that is literally the only downside to this place.

A nice local bar that is an eclectic mix of craft beer enthusiasts and just people looking to have a good time. Nice tap selection that rotates and 2 large coolers full of bottles, not anything crazy rare, but a nice overall selection. Two large bars one smoking and one non-smoking with a deck. Brad is a great bar tender that provides great service. Great to stop in to grab an after work beer or to unwind for a little bit and relax. Food is outstanding and is served very quickly. Check it out if your in the area.

First off, if you are using a GPS to find the Brewhouse Grille you will have to enter 2050 Hummel St. vs. State St., otherwise, you'll wind up at a dead end with no bar in sight.

I initially sat at the outside bar/deck to catch the last of the day's sun. The folks were friendly, but the beer choices were limited. So, after a couple of Troegs' Sunshine Wheat I headed inside for a flat bread pizza (as recommended outside by one of the locals). Inside there was a greater selection of beers on tap which included:

Blue Moon, Magic Hat #9, Coors Light, Miller Lite, Stella, Yuengling, Guinness, Harp, Sly Fox Pilsner, Troegs' Hop Back, Pale Ale & Sunshine Wheat, Victory Golden Monkey, Erie Derailed, SN Harvest & Pale Ale, Franziskaner Weisse, Hoegarden, Smithwicks, Sam Adams Summer and Ithica Sunny Wheat.

The inside of the Brewhouse was just your average bar coupled with a good sized dining area. The bar area was nothing fancy, maybe a few notches up from a spruced up VFW post, complete with old guys sitting around drinking Bud Light (it was a Monday night). The dining area fell somewhere between an upgraded pizza joint and a mid range Mexican franchise. The flatbread pizza was unique, but not exactly something I'd go back for, or even recommend.

On the plus side, the bars (both inside and out) have rows of flat screen TVs to keep you entertained, the bartenders are prompt and the prices were very reasonable. Not sure that I'll be going back any time soon, but if I happen to crash my car right outside, I'd go in for a beer.
