Went here after we took a tour of Troegs. Well I guess when Troegs closes everyone most come down the street to Appalachian Brewing. Cool old brick building with a large silo that takes up some parking. The first thing to notice is the old wooden floors and rafters. After you pass the hostess desk you will see large glass windows and doors that give you a clear view of the brewing tanks. Atmosphere is very laid back.Good music,great food.

The service was a tad bit slower but I do not blame our waitress she was friendley and cordial. The only problem is that she seemed overworked. Many of the patrons ordering food seem to be hers and that was a big area.

To the beer there was some good stuff nothing exceptional but all very solid beers. Out of all of them the Lager seemed to be the most enjoyable.Light,clean and easy settling.

All of there main stay beers are available for takeout in bottles as well as there very tasty birch and root beers.

Makes me upset that a place like this would probably do very well in our area.

A great place to visit if you are in the area. (1,086 characters)

ABC is great. Their beer selection is vast and the quality is right where you want it to be, but their food can't be praised enough. The menu is unique and full of fun things to try and it delivers once you've got it. I've had the rockfish tacos and I've tried the french dip (which is braised in their Jolly Scot Ale) and they were both wonderful. Good place to go, can't wait to go back. (389 characters)

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. (156 characters)

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. (171 characters)

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. (822 characters)
