visited - December 20, 2005

Atmosphere - very eclectic building. If not from the area, I would've driven by it without notice. The atmosphere in the restaurant/bar area is excellent. Very unusual. The worst part about the area is the parking - which is hard, unless you find the parking lot in the back to be empty.

Service - staff there is excellent. They were helpful in selecting good beers and food. Our waitress was great and the front desk service were very helpful in picking out which beers we should take home.

Selection - wide variety of beers and food. Their seasonal drinks are superb. They have a picture on their menu that describes each beer whether it is dark/light or hoppy/malty. Plenty of selection for everyone's taste.

Food - must eat a lot of food there. Brick oven pizzas were unusual and excellent. Pretzels are a must! Their mustard was unique and peppery. Order a Crabby Patty sandwich too.

Value - well worth the value of meal. The sampler was 9 dollars where you could try 8 different types of beer in a larger glass. Usually, I see a shot glass size of a sampler, this case it is at least 6 ounces.

If you are in the area - definitely go here and have a couple drinks.

Open layout, fun atmosphere, great beer, and the staff is more than willing to answer any questions in regards to the beer. Highly recommend if in the area.

Highly recommend touring this brewery because you get a one on one with the master brewer. It's a more friendly and intimate experience than some of the larger breweries.

Had dinner here after a visit to Hersheypark. It's a really neat space. Great old building, really high ceilings, huge windows overlooking brewing equipment.

Beer was good. I tried two seasonal/special brews. The saison was tasty. Nice floral (lavender?) character. Could use more funk. Good beer selection overall, with the standards plus the seasonals (there were about 5 of these). They also have their own sodas.

Food was better than expected. It's simple pub food done well. My turkey burger was tasty.
Service was very good. Our waiter didn't write down anything, and got the order 100% correct even though two of us made changes/substitutions.

Also, if you're in Harrisburg, make sure to check out the inside of the state capitol. The supreme court room is astounding. You have to be on a tour (free) to see it.
