Pretty legit beer bar/restaurant/store way out in the boonies west of Enola - not close to much other than the I-81/PA-581 junction. Came here with a bunch of guys from the Harrisburg crew when I was in town recently.

The tap list is extensive and interesting. I had Terrapin Wake-n-Bake on cask, which was outstanding. They'll fill growlers of the draft beers to go if you're so inclined.

The food is pretty solid. The cheese steak pizza was amazing, but man, that shit will put pounds on you!

There is also a very good selection of bottles available. I picked up a DFH My Antonia, some Central Waters beers (which I didn't expect to see), and other stuff.

Prices seemed to be on the cheaper side, but then again I've been living in Ripoffland, California for way too long, so don't trust me on that.

I met Al, who seemed to be a good guy and knowledgeable and passionate about beer. Next time I'm back in my old stomping grounds of Hummelstown, PA (the HTP) I'll make a point to get back out here.

Great small brewery and tap house! 102 beers on tap! 25-30 of their own well crafted brews in a wide variety of styles. 75 or so east & west coast micro-brews...not a single Busch/Coors/Miller in sight!!!

The only knock on the place is they don't do flights. with such a selection it would be nice to get to sample 6 of your favorite beer styles at a time!

Great selections of beers (100). This includes over twenty of his own beers , which hold their own. Basic Italian food that compliments the beers. Nice selection of take out as well. A must visit

Pizza Boy Brewing has quickly become my favorite local brewery, and that is saying a lot given the abundance of great craft beer in the Pennsylvania/Maryland area. It's been great to see them progress and begin to develop their flagship beers which I'm hoping will soon be available for distribution. With 102 taps and countless bottles and cans to choose from, Pizza Boy has something for everybody. Often 20-30 taps will be dedicated to Pizza Boy Beers, the other 70 or so taps will offer choice crafts brews from all over the country. The food is also very good at Pizza Boy as they have a large selection ranging from specialty pizza's to entree's and many great appetizers. It's been a pleasure having Pizza Boy in the area and I look forward to their future creations.

Been here many times and it never disappoints. They always have a good selection of other brewers beers as well as their own which are great. Food is good as well. Best brewpub in PA hands down.

Typically, I review a place after one visit as I like to keep checking out new spots since there is so much out there.

For whatever reason, I am finally entering a Pizza Boy review after 3 visits.

Generally speaking, there isn't much more that you could ask for from Pizza Boy. You have a ton of taps, and as of yesterday, I hear they are finally going to do smaller pours. (Too bad they couldn't have started that a few days earlier, for my sake!! Oh well.) The pizza is pretty good, and there always seems to be something I haven't seen available on the bottle shop side of things. It will be interesting to see how this recent expansion goes for them.
