A great stop if you are headed up the I-81 corridor.

Large brick building, 3rd largest brewpub in the US according to the manager. Very large bar area with 17 taps going, including two on cask. 5, count 'em, 5 ipas flowing on the day we visited.

Food was very intriguing. While no kids menu, they will work with you to create something nice for the little ones. Pizzas were very good, burgers were well prepared, wings were large and tasty, and apps covered a full range of appetites.

Upstairs area with another bar, outdoor seating, and pool tables. Very nice space. From the signs on the doors, they get some excellent music acts in the place.

Beers available covered a wide range of styles, from light summer ales to cask conditioned fuggle hopped stout.

Well worth a visit!

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.

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.

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.
