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.
