Tucked back on the OLD William Penn Highway (an important distinction), it is the former Parkway Tavern, which was a simple local place. Their policy was to be smoke-free until 2200, but I believe that they are now completely smoke-free. Parking is mainly across the busy road, so be cautious.
Entering, a long entryway placed me in front of the huge octagonal, laminated blonde wood bar with an equally big octagonal blonde wood structure in the overhead for Mug Club mugs. The center of the bar area was high tables and chairs with a working fireplace off to the far left. The 5, 7, 10, and 15 bbl. FVs were in the dead center with the brewhouse and restaurant area beyond that, down a short flight of steps. Off to the right, downstairs, was a private party facility. Great camaraderie among ownership and staff. Andrew Maxwell gives major props to Sean McIntyre and Matt Allyn. A sweet set-up and I must get Lew to visit.
Since the time of my initial visit, I have been back many times. My Navy buddy, Scotty, lives in nearby Plum and he and his son and I often come here for pizza when I am in the area.
Beer: I love co-owner Maxwell's philosophy of brewing everything he can think of and if you don't see what you enjoyed on your previous visit, let him know and he will make more. My fave: Spongebob Squarepants Pineapple Ale with the Hawaiian Pizza. Zounds!

Amazing Beer and Amazing Food...What else even needs to be said. You have to go to the Pourhouse. Always between 14-18 different Microbrewed beers made right there in the restaurant. If given a chance go sometime in the fall and get the Pumpkin Spice Beer, it's amazing. I'm a regular and the food and beer is what keeps me going back.

Arrived at Rivertowne and thought it was closed...no activitiy or signage screaming open and come drink. The quality of the food and beer was very good. The server was fine didnt really have much interest in shooting the breeze and did not have confident selection in food or beer. There is plenty of beer styles to choose from...you cant find somthing you got issues. I only had the pretzel and it was GREAT! I didnt think it was expensive. 14 tasters and a pretzel for $18 + tip. Overall it was a not bad and would recommend it.

We have been to Rivertowne Pourhouse several times. The atmosphere is very much like a typical sports bar. It does not particularly feel like a microbrewery, and it is very laid back. It is safe to say that families come out here. The food is good, we had a bucket of wings and a pizza. They both were very good. The pizza was simple, with a great tomato sauce that was uncomplicated and let the pepperoni shine.
Now for the beer. I have had the blueberry in the past, and it has been very good. They make a pumpkin in the fall that is great. This time around I had two. I had the peach, and it was pretty good, all in. It had a great peach smell and finished dry. On a whim, I tried the pineapple. They had a Hawaiian name the first night, and the next day they had renamed it. It was cloudy and very pineapple smelling. The taste, wow! It was amazing for a fruit beer. My husband had the IPA and really liked it. All of the beers have been very good.
