Great atmosphere, great selection of beer....in Refrigerator's and the 12 on tap, that change regularly (so get it quick, before it's gone and they change it to something else).
They also have plenty of specials, and event's going on to keep me coming back.
Service....ehh, bartender can be a cool guy and he is very knowledgable about beer, when he want's to talk about it. sometimes it seems other things are more important than waiting on customers, but his sister and his girlfriend...I think...are very nice and good with people, and the girlfriend is very good with the "chalk" decorations on the chalk boards, worth going to see what's next.
I keep coming back for the sandwich menu also, and the best potato salad around.

First off I live in Erie, PA. Overall there are only a few bottle shops and grocery stores that carry craft beer. I feel U Pick 6 is one of the reasons that craft has grown in popularity in Erie. The atmosphere is great, and so is the tap selection. Cheers!

MY first post. Suprised this place hasn't popped up on the BA radar yet. It's the latest venture for the U Pick 6 crew with a great location on Peach & 4th. I was out of town working in the area and a local guy pictched it to me. Went for lunch on a weekday afternoon last week.
Walked in and felt instant bond. It's all about the beer! Unused pulls stick up all around the perimeter at the top of the walls. Totally suds oriented stuff hanging all over the walls.
Sat down at the bar and had instant service to sample the wares. Amazing! Great variety of choices, and having been exposed to the WOB experience in FL, I was suprised I didn't recognize many of the drafts on display. "Kid" and "candy store" describe it the best.
Ordered the beer braised sausage and sweet potato salad that Molly recommended and got served soon after. Good stuff!
As for the beer? I love firsts, and the Stone offering they had in the cask at room temp was "exciting and new". The Love Boat crew couldn't have made the my time more enjoyable. That's all I'm gonna say about that. Experience it for yourself:)

I live in a craft beer desolate location about an hour from Erie, so I'm always excited to stop by U Pick 6 and do so almost anytime I'm in the area.
The first time I stopped by was preceded by about 30min of driving around plazas, until I finally realized it was located in a small side plaza with a small sign that says "Beer Store'. Well worth the search though!
This place has a great atmosphere. Very nice bar area and a small area in the back with couches and a TV. Always has good music playing too.
The bottle selection here is about the best you will find in NW PA and they usually have at least 4-6 hard to find beers on tap, along with a few local favorites. Their bottle prices aren't too bad either, especially for PA.
Overall, this is a great place to stop, whether you are looking for a six pack, a few bombers or a pint or two.

drove down from buffalo to see what beers i could score that werent in NY, also to meet up with a fellow BA to trade for some KBS. all in all, this is a nice little place to visit if your in town, i ended up walking away with a bunch of bell's and voodoo. besides these and a few others there selection looks a lot like what i get in buffalo, ST, flying dog, DFH, victory, weyerbacher, sam smiths, lots of belgians, and lots of your staples like SN and stone.
a nice bar at the front with about ten taps available for pints right there or growler fills. they serve food, but from what i understand its just to get around the pennslyvania distro laws. in the back they have a whole wall of coolers stocked with six packs. the lady working there was very helpful in getting me some singles together and seemed to know what she had in stock and what was coming in.
overall: this was a nice place to visit, i prolly wouldnt make the drive again just for this place, but if i was in the area id be sure to stop in. also, i wish buffalo had a place like this, a bar and a store in one.

Definitely the place to go in Erie for craft beer, whether on tap or by the bottle. Although it is a little bit pricier than Wegman's which is just down the road, the selection is much better. They are also much more likely to have limited availability beers or ones that are hard to find in NWPA. This is not the place to go if you need help making a beer selection, however. You are generally not helped, is hard to find someone to help you, and are treated like your business is not needed. That being said, I do frequent U Pick 6 and is the only place I will go in Erie because if they don't have it, nobody else does.
Since originally posting this review, I have been to UP6 many times. I can honestly say that the service and attention to detail has improved. My friends and I made a special trip up there to drink cowbell and watch a game and sat in the back on the couches and the gentleman behind the bar was more than accommodating. He went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of as far as drinks were concerned as well as food. Even when we went back to the bar to order more beers, he poured them and brought them back to us where we were sitting. Compared to my previous experiences, the past few have been very enjoyable. In my experiences recently, it really seems that everyone is going out of their way to ensure that their patrons are more than taken care of. This is a very welcomed change and only makes the experience even better!

I have visited the establishment about a half dozen times. the selection is fair to good (temps a bit off), the prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is inviting. There is a good selection of Belgian and specialty beers.
I have met the owner who does not help the places image whatsoever. Depending on who is serving the experience can vary from very bad to very good. My last trip there was spoiled by the snot behind the bar. However it does have some of the very finest servers in the area. Pick your visit time carefully.
