My visit to The Appalachain Brewing Company came after a very solid visit to Stoudt's. I stayed at the Crowne Plaze Harrisburg and in the name of responsibility I made my way by foot which would have been a perfect walk had it not been 10 degrees with 20 MPH winds. On a Monday evening in mid Feb the restaurant portion was pretty much empty and the bar area was bustling with what I gathered were the regulars for the Monday mug club special. I had their very good English Pale Ale which I found to have a delightful hop character using English hops as opposed to the requisite Pac NW variety. From there I had a sampler with their Porter, Barleywine, Stout, and another I can't recall. All of the beers at ABC were excellent and this is a worthy stop for any beer conniseaur. What really blew me away was the quality of their bar food. I placed my order and almost forgot about it until it came out quite some time later. It was certainly worth it. I had flatbread pomodoro and the BEST bar hot wings I've ever had. Great beer and great food. What's better? A pretty cool facility in a revived old building. What's better? A Belgian beer bar upstairs. I wanted to focus on their house beers so I stayed away from the Belgian bar upstairs but I'm sure if I find myself back in Harrisburg I'll put it on my list to check out.

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.
