The what-turned-out-to-be-7th and final stop of the super awesome magical mega central PA 2 day brewery tour was Appalachian! For those keeping score at home, the 5th was an unplanned stop at a winery between Selinsgrove and Harrisburg (don't bother, bad bad wine) and the 6th was Tröegs for the tour and a snappy Tröegenator work shirt (I can now pretend to be a supervisor of a hardwood flooring company named Mark).

An almost-literal stone's throw from the aforementioned production brewery on the wrong side of the tracks in H'burg. Stuck between a mass of tracks and a cliff on Cameron St. in the Commonwealth capital, it looks like any other gloomy warehouse in the row. Inside it has that spacious warehouse-turned-brewpub look that's so...warehouse-turned-brwepubby. It's a good thing, and it's done right here. Lots of tables and in the back is a long L-shaped bar. We plop down right in the right angle. The surprisingly large brewing system is visible through glass behind the bar. We get a sampler of 8 beers, all solid examples of their styles, and some fries. Fries weren't bad, though the oil wasn't hot enough when they were fried...sort of soggy and one was undercooked. But I ain't gonna rate a place's food just on some fries. We got a couple of small glasses after that of their cask stout and their oak (not bourbon) barrel aged barleywine, both were fantastic. Service was very nice to boot.

We definitely plan on coming here again when in the area, Appalachian gets slagged too much and the brewpub is a great establishment with a wide selection of quality beer.
