The main focus of the mega 2 day central PA brewery tour, and the second stop. What a quaint little town in the middle of nowhere. We parked out front and walked around the side of the building then in the basement entrance in the back. The coziest place ever waited inside. A couple of tables and a fireplace to the left, a table to the immediate right and an 8 seat bar straight ahead. A smaller room back and to the right has a few tables and the bathrooms, along with board games and things for the kiddies to play with.

We slip up to the bar and get the sampler. 10 beers...none of the Kriek that the illustrious Mr. Bryson brought to my quiz night at the Grey Lodge that made this the place we just had to go to at some point (we were later told it's a summer seasonal), and none of that Tripel I've heard so much about (just bad timing). In fact, the biggest beer they had was a 7%er. Most were around 5%, and all were so crisp and bright and clear. All stellar examples of their styles. The cream ale may have been my favorite, which sounds so weird to say...but it was just fantastic. A slightly sweet roundness compliments the corn flavor (which actually works fantastic here), never thought a cream ale could be like this...but it fit the style perfectly. They also had an organic pale ale, a fresh hop ale (made from their homegrown hops, also on cask), an IPA, all 3 of which were just so juicy. Rounding out the list were a hefe, a porter, a stout, a pumpkin beer (second only to Defiant's), a coffee-infused version of their stout...uh...and the rest! Again, all tops in their styles...I've never been to a brewpub where every single beer excited me until here.

The service was very good even though they were swamped (picked the wrong weekend to go...parents weekend at nearby Susquehanna U.). We snacked on the hummus, which was good but nothing special, and the artichoke and spinach dip, which was great. I'm not that into artichoke or spinach dips, but this one was all cheese, real quality. It was served in a bread bowl, with the cut-out bread cut into cubes for our dipping enjoyment.

And the prices! $2.75 for a pint! We had a sampler, 5 half-pints, the aforementioned food and filled 3 growlers and spent $100, including tax and tip. That'd be a fantastic price if the beer were crap, this is far from it...

Love this place, great atmosphere of local and college guests. Food items are unique and carry a local flair. Beer selection is great with several items rotating through their menu. Gets very crowded most any day or time of year. Nice outdoor seating. They'll fill growlers.
