I enjoyed my Sunday lunch visit to ABC. I think it would have been better to go at a busier time for atmosphere, but it wouldn't have changed the other elements of the visit. It is a stunning looking warehouse that has the brewery behind windows to the right. It is a huge place with a good sized bar with about five tvs. The upstairs sports pub is closed on Sunday, but is supposed to have lots of tvs, pool, and other games. They also have live entertainment many nights in the sports pub, and some nights in the downstairs bar.

I was a little disappointed in the beer and in the selection for sure. They had seven beers on tap, including the monthly special. The beers were okay but there were no big tasting beers. The only one with a high alcohol content, they limited to a five-ounce pour due to the 11 percent alcohol level. Since I wasn't driving, that was a downer. It was their most interesting beer, a cask-conditioned Broad Street Barley Wine, which is considerably stronger in this rendition than the one reviewed here.

The other beers were a wheat, a lager, a pale ale, a scottish ale, a stout, and a red ale. The only one that was off was the Water Gap Wheat. It really didn't taste like a Wheat. The others were all okay.

The food was the high point of the visit. Excellent menu with Irish specials for St. Patty's Day. There is a wide variety of food and everything that we had was well prepared. I would go back to ABC, but only 45 minutes north is the Selins Grove Brewery. Selins Grove's beers are far superior.
