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.

The best part besides the beer is the atmosphere. Very old underground english pub kind of feel. The beer is amazing and the food is fresh and local.

My hometown brewpub. World class, consistent top-quality beers, both standards and seasonals. Beer engine as well as kegs and as authentic a Colonial experience as you will find anywhere. American Pale Ale, Shade Mountain Stout and Wit compare with anyone anywhere. Small but memorable.

I had the opportunity to stop here while passing through on business and if you're not watching closely, it would be easy to miss. The bar area is in the downstairs of the building, small and intimate, yet cozy. If you are a hop head their IPA is amazing. The food menu is solid with sandwiches, appetizers and salads. The only downside is the location because Selinsgrove is "off the beaten path" so to speak but well worth the short drive south of I-80 to get there. Recommended stop.

Years ago, the wife and I drove from Harrisburg to Buffalo and fell in love with the mighty Susquehanna. So now that we live in Philadelphia PA, a trip to the area was a must.

We caught a sunset by the river and then stopped in Selinsgrove. The brewpub is in an old, quaint building in the main thoroughfare, down the stairs and into a cozy, dimly-lit space. Something like drinking a beer in an old colonial tavern.

They had 13 taps plus 1 cider when I visited, but 5 of the handles had kicked, including a Sour Peche aged two years and a Kriek Sour Cherry. They offer 4-oz pours, I like that. I tried the Triple, Extra Stout and Centennial IPA. Other styles on tap include Cream, Scottish, Wit, Porter...

We liked the food even better than the beer. Lots of veggie options! Portabella sandwich was great, and the local cheese plate the wife ordered was outrageous. Local honey to die for, and so was the bread.

I would come back for the food more than the beer, but all in all a good experience.

I went there today for the first time this afternoon. Really nicely done basement bar, beautiful, subtle woodwork and brick. A few beer lovers at the bar talking beer.
The beers I had were outstanding. Cream Ale and Stout. The Snake Drive Stout really stood out. It was hopped up a bit over most Irish stouts and the charred malt was very in your face. Perfectly balanced, smooth and drinkable.
The service was great. Beer savvy bartenders who know beer. Very attentive and seemed to enjoy their job!
The selection rating took a hit because they were out of throne beer I went there to try.
The food is not bad but the selection is very vegetarian leaning…I like meat! There were only a small number of meat containing dishes and they were cold cut sandwiches and a Gyro. I had the Gyro, it was not great but I wouldn't go there hungry again.
Overall this place lived up to the hype as a great central PA beer destination!

Stepping into the past is what it's like to eat and drink here. You can just imagine candles burning brightly as plans for the American Revolution are laid out with good food and grog. We did a beer samples and finished the evening with a chocolate dessert and some great beers.

I love this place. In the basement of a 200 + year old mansion. Great little patio with torches and hops growing on a trellis in the summer. And the beer is always top notch. They make some wonderful sours and darks.
