Incredible place, long lined bar filled with regulars and glipses of the brewing tank in the background. Dimly lit with lots of wooden tables, ABC logo is everywhere even on the ATM and Gumball machines. These people really give a damn and it shows. I had a pulled pork sandwich with a pint of their Kipona Fest seasonal, all outstanding. Topped it off with some of their Cask stout, also worth trying. Huge mug club, was on hand for the unveiling of their Olde Ale, didn't get a chance to try it but by all hands it seemed like it went over well.

Service was good, had a young waitress who begged me to try the also self-brewed Root Beer for free, (very good for the record, youngsters will enjoy it) and the bartenders were very eager to talk about what was coming up in the brewing future.

Upstairs at the Abbey Bar, I only got a glimpse, but it oozes class and has some great Belgians on hand, also many I hadn't heard of.

This place also fills any growler and has any merch, cold beer, or glassware you could want out front, away from your dining expierience, which I appreciate.

Overall, incredible incredible place. Nothing else to say, one of the best brewpubs I've ever seen or been to. Will be back, many times.

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.
