Spent a few fuzzy days in Clarion. The BA review of this place didn't seem promising, but after being harangued repeatedly by locals, told that this was simply *the* spot for drinkin' in town and that I wouldn't be able to say I had properly drank in Clarion unless I'd drank here, I stopped in.
It was a large, friendly joint with nice service and talkative locals. It is absolutely in no way a beer bar, however; the only taps that weren't BMC or Diego were Yuengling and Yuengling Black & Tan. The bottle selection wasn't much better--BMC, Yuengling, Iron City, a wide variety of alcopops and energy beers, and then inexplicably some Dogfish Head 90 minutes.
Simply put, your average BA's fridge will have a wider selection of craft beers than this place.
None of this is to say that the joint ain't enjoyable. I had a nice time. There was food and room for dancing but it was early so I didn't try either of those. But the big point is that this isn't in any way a beer bar, not even by Clarion's very modest standards.

The Loomis is a couple things all combined in one building. Firstly it's a bar called Mr. T's, but often referred to as the Loomis. The bar caters to party crowd, and rumors are it's periodically closing to to be remodeled to have a large dance floor. ON tap the have the usual BMC, Yuengling, Guinness, and occasionally some micros. Their favorite is Magic Hat #9. The often have a cover to get in, which I feel is unreasonable. It's often overcrowded and service can be slow. If you're looking for a decent beer bar avoind this place.
Underneath the bar is the 6-pack shop. Which doesn't have too much to talk about, but occasion they get something impressive. Right now they have Ithaca variety packs, Arrogant Bastard, HopDevil, a couple things from Erie brewing company, Penn Brewing Company (Brewer's Private Reserve), and Sam Adams as well as BMC products and malt liquor. The 6-pack shop is worth checking out from time to time.
The restaurant's food is decent, but I've only has sandwiches. I've never tried their dinner-time entrees.
Ever section of this establishment (bar, restuarant, six-pack shop) is connected and you can move from place to place without going outside, but when in each one they feel like a separate business, which is why they give each their own name, I guess. Overall, this place is nothing special, but occasionally you can get some gems.
