I spent much of my undergraduate career at the Market Cross Pub located in downtown Carlisle, PA. The Pub features typical pub food and the largest beer selection in the area.

There are about a dozen taps and they usually reserved for pretty basic brews (Yuengling, Guinness, Harp). There is usually one beer on cask as well. Market Cross also brews a few of their own house brewed beers on tap.

The strength of the Market Cross's beer selection is their extensive bottle list which features around 170 different selections. The beer menus is broken down in sections. The international section features beers from Argentina to Vietnam and many stops in between (with Belgium, the UK, and Germany comprimising the largest group). The Pub also features many Pennsylvania breweries (Sly Fox, Troegs, Victory, Weyerbacher and the nearby Appalachian Brewing Company). The rest of the beer menu isn't going to blow anyone away (Bell's, Dogfish Head, Stone, Ommegang, etc.) but it is definitely the best selection in town.

The food is standard but good. Sandwiches and pub favorites such as shephard's pie and fish and chips dominate the menu.

Service is also friendly, but often hurried particulary during big weekend at the nearby college.

All in all, the Market Cross pub is a solid beer lovers destination in central Pennsylvania. I stop in for a meal and a pint every time through Carlisle. You should too.
