I've visited Al's a number of times. It is about 45 minutes from my house with easy access off the interstate.

Al's has an excellent selection of draft beers and a very fine amount of craft beers in six packs and 750ml bottles. The website is continuously updated with the latest drafts. The service is knowledgeable and friendly. The pizza and other foods are really good too.

The dining area is pretty small and you can't always find a table but there's a pretty quick turnover and I've never minded waiting while sipping on a delicious and fresh brew.

The tap lines are kept clean and the pours into a glass or growler are done quickly.

Great place!

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.
