Small but great brewery. They have a small pub on the front end. Make sure you don't get lost trying to find them.

Went on a Saturday afternoon. Not at all crowded. Seems to be a two level affair with the taproom/brewery on the upper level and a cellar down below. Especially impressed with the Mason's coffee porter. Everything else was decent but not life-changing. Good prices. Pretty limited kitchen in the bar area (fries, pretzels, pickles and the like) but looked appetizing and less-pretentious than some similar places. Would go back.

stop by after Visiting Doylestown, PA. took the train SEPTA to North Wales Station. Beware there is little sidewalk to get to Prism Brewery, you do have to walk in the street for a little bit. Once inside it a small sitting area and bar. The service was great. Beer was great, food was very good but a limited menu. prices were reasonable. they have growlers to go. can't wait to go again.

First off, as everyone has said, this place isn't easy to find. Our GPS told us to go right onto Dickerson, when we really needed to go left. We finally found it (thanks to a sign from the kind people at Prism saying YES YOU'VE FOUND US), and expectations were low from looking at the outside. Inside, it was a whole different story. This place is very small, with maybe five or six tables and maybe ten seats at the bar. The bartender immediately came up to us at the table, introduced himself, asked our names, shook our hands, and we ordered a flight. Eight beers for ten bucks is a steal, and the beers were all ridiculously unique and delicious. Strawberry jalapeno brown ale? Irish red with maple syrup and fall spices? A black wheat with wasabi? The most conventional beers were an IPA with honey, a pineapple pilsner, and a blonde ale with blood oranges. We didn't get food, but the menu was very basic. The vibe inside is like...I can't even describe it. There were a couple of TVs with sports on, techno music playing, and some other elements that reminded me of an old school pub. The only gripe I had was that service was a tad bit slow, but the bartender was also functioning as the lone server and cook on shift, and the family of five that came in probably didn't lighten his workload. Very unique and definitely added to our list of regular stops.

This place is not easy to find, especially if you are not from the area. There is a small sign or two that will help you get there (once you notice them), but once you are in the complex you need to drive all the way around the warehouse-type buildings. It is along side the railroad tracks.

Defintely unappealing look from the outside, but inside is a different story. Plenty of darker woods, several wooden hi-tops, and a bar that can seat about 10. The bar overllooks the brewery operations which is cool. Blackboards above the bar list the beers and such.

There were about 8 Prism beers on draft during this visit, with some 6 packs available for sale to go along with growlers. The beers I had were very fresh. Service was very friendly and prompt, and there is a definite local vibe here as most people seemed to know each other. The food is low key as the menu is small but will do if you are hungry.

Overall an enjoyable stop and worthy of a trip to have a few beers where they make them.

....AND for my 100th review of breweries,bars andhomebrew shops, the wife and I headed here to Prism brewing !. Anyway as we walked through the barnyard type door we were greeted almost immediately by the locals sitting there. Bar is straight ahead as you walk in ,and some scattered pub tables throughout the rest. Very comfy bar stool I noticed as soon as we sat down. The brewery is just behind the bar behind a few plexi-glass windows. A few patrons sitting around watching the Phils lose yet another game. Very nice atmosphere reminds alot of the Lagerhaus in Palm Harbor FL.

Our bartender/server was very helpful and pleasant. Not knowing what to get immediately we decided to get a sampler of all eight beers. And ordered some dogs . I ended up having the purple dog just for the chili but didn't notice it came with so much onion (not an onion fan) but this did not stop me. The onions were very sweet not that nasty ,tear driven crappy vegatable that makes me gag everytime I eat them. Good stuff. The wife got a deep fried dog and said it was awesome. Very inexpensive place to visit for food and drink.

An excellent place to come visit if in the area. I will surely be back soon.

A decent spot with a fairly spacious atmosphere. Massive chalkboard on the wall behind the bar shows all that is available. Bar looks straight into the brewing area. Selection was okay. Some of the wackiness of the beer descriptions was no very appealing to me. I went for a stout and it was pretty good. I think I'd come back here with a group of friends. Or if Funk Zone was available again.
