I had the pleasure of visiting ABC's Camp Hill location for the first time when entering a few entries into their homebrew competition. I decided to stay for lunch.
The Brewing equipment stands out as you walk in it is displayed prominently. Diagonally to the left is the bar which had at least half a dozen beers on tap and I noticed a seasonal of Vanilla Porter as I handed over my homebrew.
The decor is classy dark wood and and Beer art adorning the wall that appear to be stretched canvas with silkscreended images of ABC beers like: Celtic knot, Zoigl lager, Broadstreet Barleywine etc. The sounds of Hard Bop and jazz played as we walked in and were shown to our seats by the extremely friendly Maitre D.
The drinks were brought shortly and we were able to place food orders almost immediately. The business lunch is featured in the menu for extra quick service and they don't dissapoint. I ordered Chedder ale soup and a crab cake sandwich with onion rings. The soup came out fresh and was deliciously garnished with sour cream and bits of real bacon. The food was tasty and well prepared and the service was very pleasant.
I left feeling full and well taken care of. The Cask ale was something I would return for and the tapped wine system piqued my interest. I enjoyed revisiting the homebrewed rootbeer and could not have asked for much better service. I would recommend stopping at ABC Camp Hill anytime you are in the area.

This place is about half the size of the ABC pub in Harrisburg. However, this place still has great food and great beer. The small atmosphere makes you feel like you are in your own living room having a quaint dinner.
The service was fairly decent the few times we have been there. There was one occasion where the waiter was gone for an extended period of time. Other than that they were friendly and had some beer knowledge.
Priced the same, but i do prefer the main ABC. This one is closer to where we live so we go here instead.
