vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 3.5 | selection: 4 | food: 4 | $$

Came here for dinner and drinks last week while in Harrisburg for the night. My wife arrived at around 4 on a Sunday afternoon and the place was pretty empty; only one or two tables of people and once guy at the bar. Since we were here for the beer and not the food, we sat at the bar. The two bartenders who served us over the course of the evening seemed friendly but didn't offer too many drink suggestions as I recall. Our orders were always filled promptly though, and that is something to speak of highly.

I don't remember what I ordered for dinner that night, maybe a pulled pork sandwich; what does stand out in my mind are the pretzel appetizers. I'm a big fan of home-made pretzels, so when I can order them at a pub, I'm always happy. I'd recommend you get some when you visit.

I was very impressed with the draft selection. They had more beers on tap than their signage could handle, with extra choice signs propped up behind the bar below the large sign that held all of the other selections. A number of off-season brews were still on tap. Did they brew too much beer or did these ones just not sell? I don't know, but the ones I tried tasted fine, so I was happy. This was my second visit to ABC, and if I find myself in Harrisburg, I will definitely return.
