A lot going on here. Its a dinky little place, jammed with several tables, numerous cooler units and the small kitchen all squeezed into one small, cramped feeling room. Its a full menu pizza joint, Italian eatery. Def not the place to take a date or the family. Better to drop in for a bite with the guys or take food to go or just to pick up some of the many fine beers they offer.
Loads and loads of quality locals, regional and national good stuff in bottles in the coolers and they fill growlers from a large variety of taps..always a huge plus. They had numerous growler fill options I would have taken advantage on a regular basis if I was local. They also brew their own beer right here and offer it in growlers. Nice. Very beer friendly athmosphere. I got the feeling I was in the company of many beer geeks ( a good thing) when I visited with my local buddy.

I absolutely loved this place and hated it at the same time. The Pizza Boy beer was amazing, well worth the hype and the food was also very good. However, not offering samples or flights of beer is very puzzling. At least offer 4 or 5oz pours. This would allow customers to try more of this great beer and certainly increase sales. It was also really odd that you cannot tip using a credit card. Not sure about the reasoning behind this but it has to hurt the servers/bartenders. We ran up decent sized bill but had very little cash on us to provide a tip. Overall, great beer, good food but unusual business practices.

The move from the old location to the recent location was the BEST thing Al could have ever done for business. The selection is phenomenal, he does a great job of promoting other "Local-PA" breweries. The sour program he is starting I'd is stellar, I believe it will one day match the likes of Jester King or The Bruery. His IPAs are a top seller as they are all quality. The food is always very good and the atmosphere is friendly and great for families/friends.
