Went here on a Saturday night for dinner & drinks with some friends
A- Kind of an older crowd. Was a little disappointed in the size of the 3 TV's in the place, probably 27'ers. Any bar I go to in New Jersey no matter how nice or shitty has at least one 40'+ flat screen. Music was pretty lame here too
Q & S- as far as the brewery beers go they had pretty much every style represented. From IPA, Barleywine, Porter, Stout, Rauchbier, Scotch Ale. Also a cask line. All seemed fresh, none of the beers were over the top spectacular. There was also a pretty decent Belgian bottle selection of about 50+
Service- This was the low point, service was slow and the place wasn't even that crowded for a Saturday night. The staff also knew little to nothing about beer. Was brought the wrong beer twice when we ordered off the Belgian list
Food- All the food we ordered was pretty good from starters to dessert, no complaints , mostly your typical brew pub menu
Prices were pretty reasonable- Food & Beer for 4 people was $180 w/ tip...and that was with everyone having at least 4 beers, entree & starter/dessert...Beers were around $4-$5, most of the Belgians were priced fairly
Overall, a middle of the road brewery as far as beers go. Better than average food. Poor service/knowledge of staff. So-so Atmosphere

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.
