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.

Atmosphere: pretty cool place, not trying to make themselves anything, just a good place for pizza and beer. some view into their brewing process and kitchen.

Service: everyone was nice and helpful, only thing I found odd was they didn't want to let me try something before I filled multiple growlers.

Selection and Quality: over a hundred taps is an easy way to make a good selection, but nothing was overly rare. I'd say your beset bet is to go with the pizza boy beer, the rest (besides nitros and firkins) are easy to find elsewhere.

Food: pizza was good, but nothing overly special. jalapeño poppers were just okay.

Overall: I almost wish they'd get rid of all the taps but their own if the rarest thing you'll find is a troegs scratch beer (less than half an hour away from the brewery). Their beers, that I tried, were quite good. certainly a place to check out but not somewhere I'd go to all the time.

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.
