A simple, no frills place. Brewerania decor on the walls from various gigs that Guy has played over the years. A simple 8 seat bar and a few tables on the side. What more do you want? This is a small brewery with a glorified tasting room, not a typical "brewpub".

Everything we had on tap was spot on and tasty...Guy sure knows how to brew quality stuff.

Being a one man operation the six taps on are about all you will ever see. Six is my average...so I usually give a 3...but considering the choices were varied, Season's Wheating's was on tap in July (X-mas in July) and Guy is a one man show I couldn't really ask for more...so I bumped this up by a point.

Guy was a treat to talk to. After having multiple growlers of his stuff I finally got the chance to stop in for a visit! It's always a shock when you walk into a place you have never been and the owner says to you, "Oh, you must be the famous D"! Now that is a mighty fine welcome! Nice to know that he reads SierraGs's blog!

A great value...we got like 6 pints, a growler fill and a One Guy T-shirt for me and our bill was around $40. How can you go wrong with that?

If and when in the Berwick area over the weekend I will make time to stop by and visit Guy and his fresh, tasty brews...best of luck and keep up the good work!

Edit:September 2009---One Guy Brewing (and that may change soon) now has an awesome biergarden out back and increased indoor seating. In addition to the atmosphere upgrades Guy and crew are now serving up some rockin' pizza. During our past visit we had the Margarheita and Steve-O's Inferno pies....both of which were very good with the Steve-O's taking first place!

So, in additon to some of the freshest brew out there One GUy is serving up mighty fine pizza too. If you haven't made it to Berwick to check this place out I suggest you do so!

Drove right past this place without seeing the sign. I think my gps was telling me it was to the right when it was to the right and slightly behind me.

It's too bad that I stopped here less than an hour before they were closing up for the night. Or, maybe that's a good thing. They make a ton of different beers here. A ton. The chalkboard list just goes on and on and on. I'm trying to think if I've ever seen as many choices available at a brewpub at one time. (Two days after this visit, I see even more than this at Pizza Boy.) What I had was pretty good. Though I was deep in conversation with two interesting ladies, so was paying less attention to the beer at that point. I brought home some bottles to try though. Service was attentive but a bit detached. I wonder if they were worn out from a long shift.

I would definitely come back here. With so many different beers to try, it seems almost necessary.

The wife and I were going to Weatherly, PA, and I figured I'd look for something new in the area. There was nothing on the way that really struck my interest or that I had'nt had before, and though this place was about 30 minutes off course, it's high beer ratings drew my interest.

It's a bit hard to find in a small town with lots of wacky one-way streets, and it didn't help that my GPS was sending me to the wrong address. But eventually I found it just off Front St. Innocent interior, basic arrangement, bright and open, with rustic murals painted on some walls and a collage of album covers on others. A small-medium bar seats maybe 15 people. The bartender was a nice girl and took care of us, though I didn't talk to her enough to know if she was really in tune with the beer scene. But whatever, service was just fine, especially since we were the only ones at the bar when they opened.

Normally I don't give a brewpub such a high rating for selection, but with a whopping SEVENTEEN tap lines flowing with house brews, how can you go wrong? A wide array of choices from a cream ale, two kellerbiers, amber, IPA, porter, 3 stouts including a nitro line, wheat beers, saisons, golden ales...really a diverse spectrum here. And as the ratings here would lead you to believe, many of the beers were very good. Even the pils and the strawberry blonde appealed to me, and those are among my least favored styles.

As far as food goes, 13" pizzas are basically all that's on the menu, with pretzels as an option for smaller snacking. The pizza was a great size to split between two people, and quite tasty without being too greasy or bready.

As far as price goes: a pizza, a sampler flight of 6 beers, 3 half pours, and a piece of glassware from the merch stand came to just under $30. Not bad at all.

I highly doubt I'd find myself in the Berwick area again, but I would definitely love to go back to this place.

Finally had an opportunity to check out Berwick Brewing Company. My girlfriend and I drove down Saturday night and we both came away very impressed and look forward to going again.

Beer: Had about 8 or 9 beers to choose from. Nice variety. They do samplers but we opted to each try two beers. My girlfriend had the Wheat (bartender offered to add apple cider which was nice touch) and the Hondo which is a full-bodied lager. I had the Pilsner (very good) and the Atomic Punk IPA (wonder if it's named after the Van Halen song?)

Atmosphere: It's not fancy. It's an old bread warehouse. Has a unique feel to it with lots of stuff on the walls, including album covers and lots of German beer bottles.

Price: 4 beers and a pint glass cost $20 so it's very reasonable.

Food: Didn't try the food, but it looked good.

Service: Bartender was very friendly, helpful and knew about the beers she was serving.

This micro is located in an old factory of some sort, so of course I took an instant liking to it.Connected to the bar is an outdoor area they are calling a Bier Garten. I think the idea for this came from a place just up the road called Bandit's Roadhouse that has a outdoor patio out back. It is only open on summer weekends put is is packed all of the time.
As for beer I knew the beer was good but I had no idea how good it really was.I tried the Berwick Lager the Atomic Punk IPA and the Zwickel Pilsner, all were excellent. I was not planning on having that much so I ordered a pizza and again it was very good.

Stopped by mid afternoon, wasn't very busy and was able to get a seat at the bar. Plenty of selections available, somewhere around 7, including a wheat, lager, porter, ipa, a raspberry porter, and others.

I tried the Bill's Porter & Atomic Punk IPA, both were very good, and very reasonably priced given the quality. I also got a growler of the front street wheat for a friend. The service was very good, my glass was never empty for long and everyone was very polite.

Lots of beer nostalgia on the walls, and some information about local breweries as well, which was nice to see. I will definitely stop by again!

Stopped in here with Deuane and petesuphi earlier this week.

Quite the interesting place this is. This was my first trip to berwick, let alone the brewery. The atmosphere was very laid back. Plenty of seating around the bar and even more in the back room thanks to all the german style picnic tables. Bar is a bit small but it suits their needs just fine. Walls are coated in old beer memorabilia which adds to the theme of a beer garden very well. The giant sliding door behind the bar gives you a glimpse into the real workings of the brewery. The service was great. They were all very friendly and answered any questions we had. Even got to meet the one and only "guy" while we were there which was awesome. We never had to wait for our beers but we were the only people there for some time.

The beer selection was awesome. They had plenty of different styles on when we were there. I wanted to try the IPA but I ended up opting for a bourbon barrel aged imp. stout and a soul fire. Both were excellent and tasted great. I am still amazed that such quality beers can come from such an unassuming brewery. All the more reason to drink local in my book.

Food was really, really, good. We tried three of the pizza's, the margherita, the steve-o inferno, and the curd & jager. If I had to choose one I would say I liked the curd & jager the best but they were all so good you really can't go wrong. Prices were very good. All the pizza's were under ten bucks and the beers were very reasonable priced as well. Overall, this is a truly hidden jem that I will definitely return to in the future.
