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.

Support this place - they respect beer

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.

Used BA to find this great stop on the way through Harrisburg. Good food, great beer. Wish I had a place like this near me. Food staff was great, beer staff seemed a bit put out about doing their jobs.
