I've been to Pizza Boy a handful of times and every time have enjoyed the food and the vast beer selection. They have a ton of taps and no shortage of choices, they also offer growler fills and recently now offer crowler fills which I love. The pizza boy beer is usually VERY good to outstanding, In fact I wish they had more of their stuff on than other breweries. The only problem I have is its not a place that s very comfortable to stay at very long. The seating is very out in the open and has a weird cafeteria vibe to it. I don't live in the area so Im usually just stopping through quickly but even if I did live in the area I don't think this is a spot that I'd come and have more than a beer or two.

My go-to place for great beer in the Harrisburg area. Great tap selection, I stick with trying all of the Pizza Boy stuff though. Decent bottle selection, food is good too.

Ground zero for Capitol region beer. 100 beers on tap, typically 20 of their own. Al's gets a 5+ for both quality adnd selection. The knocks? I can't reconcile the price of the sours. They're terrific, I'm willing to pay more for rarity, I get that they are more expensive to make. But it's hard to justify paying $25-30 for 750 of a sour (or even $18 for a tasty but humble Berliner Weiss), while $10 can get you some terrific half gallon growlers. And the practice of charging $3 for a growler cap is weird and off putting. Food is merely ok, although the wings are underrated. Despite the niggles, this is my go to place inthe Harrisburg area. Go there.
