Was here earlier today with Deuane and Carolyn.
What a place! SGBC is in downtown Selinsgrove, a nice, quaint town, The vibe here is great! A nice sitdown dining area, the usual bar, and a great outdoor seating area. We sat outside, where our waitress was very attentive, prompt and friendly, despite being the only person to bus all our tables on a rather busy Mother's day + Susquehanna U graduation weekend, just great service. The selection was great, with plenty of great beers on tap. I had 4 different beers (see my reviews) and all were good at the very least, and their IPA is a beautiful thing. Food is good too - their black bean and sausage soup was great, as was the curried chicken salad in whole wheat pita. While not a gastronomic experience, the food is MORE than adequate, and very tasty. Prices were great too - $3.25+ pints, $7 sandwiches - just a great, great value. $20 got me a 2-course lunch and 2.5 pints. Awesome.

Could have sworn I reviewed this place a few years back. Perhaps it got lost, or I failed to hit the review button.
I've been coming here wich 2007, when my daughter entered Susquenahha University in town. Just love the place.
Atmosphere is always excellent. A small pub feel on the main street through town. , with low ceilings, lottsa beams. The perfect home from home for an Brit like me. Small and larger tables inside and out, many with old church pews as seating. Place is small, so can get pretty packed at times. Try to hit on off hours. Open Weds-Sun, early closing on Sunday.
Bar area is small. Staff was sometimes a problem in the early years I was coming here, but has been exceptional for many years now. All are helpful and knowledgable about both beer and food. Parking is on street, or a small parking area behind thee pub. This lot gets full quickly in the evenings. Be careful not to park in the adjacent parking for the Doctors offices. They ticket and tow. I've never found it difficult to get closeby street parking, even at busy times.
Quality and selection here is also excellent. Some solid year round offerings, with a good number of rotating brews, and more recently, special one-off beers. Usually 7-10 beers on tap. Sometimes run low, because of the small batches they brew, and a run on one can lead to some cross offs on the menu. They do have a website, where you can check availabilty, but it isn't always up to date. (though the list will have an "as of". date) Call ahead if there is something particular you hope to find.
Food can be anywhere between fantastic and just okay. Mostly around the very good mark. Weekly specials are where they really shine. Recently had a lamb stew which led to me clamoring for an extra serving. Some of the sandwiches could use a litle extra seasoning. But you can build your own sandwich fom the menu list, which is fun to do. They also use a lot of local produce and cheeses.
Overall, I wish I lived closer (75-90 minutes) My daughte graduated in 2011, so I don't have an extra reason for coming here. Oh, wait, of course,...
