This place is great. Only down fall is that it's kind of hidden in a Business / Industrial park. One of the BEST 6 pack selections in Pennsylvania. They carry bottles of everything from bottom barrel Natural Light to top of the world beers from around the globe. BIG micro / craft selection from across PA and the US as well. They have several flat screen TV's, live music, and plenty of beer tastings. Jokingly, don't go in on Sunday during a Ravens / Steelers Game...gets a little nuts. If you are visiting or vacationing in Gettysburg, take the extra 1/2 hour drive and check it out. You WON'T be disappointed.

*On a funny note: They also have a Drive-Through or in PA commonly known as a "Brew Through"!!!

Popped in here while visiting a friend who lives in the area- had been here a while back but it appears that they've expanded with outdoor seating and also an extended covered seated section where the drive through used to be...

In the area, there's not much better in terms of selection, which is also probably why they are a little bit on the higher side of things price-wise in the bottle shop portion of the establishment (nothing is labeled, so make sure you ask before buying- we were a bit stunned at a ~$20 six pack!). Good selection on the taps, nice option to be able to make your own flights (some beers with slight upcharges). Prices per pint / growler seemed to be in line with the norm.

I have been to Good Ta Go three times so far and plan on going back frequently. It is located in Chambersburg Pa and has a huge variety of beer. They have 30 beers on tap which they rotate regularly. You can get a drought and sit down to enjoy or drink it while you pick out a mix and match sixer. Bartenders are knowledgeable and friendly. A must try for any beer lover!

I've stopped here several times, it's close, with easy access off Rt. 11, or Exit 14 off I81 in south Chambersburg. A nice selection of bottles for mixed sixes and single bottles at the higher prices. I still find it reasonable.
A very nice tap selection of quality beers, seasonals and year rounds. Always greeted and helped, just a friendly, nice store/eatery.
I'm glad it's around.

My mother-in-law lives in nearby Waynesboro, so whenever we drive down to visit, we always make a trip to Good-Ta-Go, which several years ago was my introduction to PA bottle shops.

Good Ta Go is located on Orchard Road, Chambersburg, in kind of a business park area. It's a new building, bright and clean. I usually go there off peak hours, so never too busy. Atmosphere is usually pretty good, with tables both inside and out. The last time I was there, they even converted the drive thru to a seating area to accomodate a tasting.

As you go in, the tap area and counter are to your left, while the small indoor seating is to your right. They usually have about 30 beers on tap, and will do a 4 or 6 sampler flight if you wish. Last time I had Big Gruesome, a keg only Victory IPA, and a Great Lakes EF Porter, so always some good stuff there.

To get to the craft beer mix a six section, continue to the back of the store. (Hurry past the macro section in the coolers to the left.) They have a pretty decent, but not huge selection, PA breweries and breweries from across the country, imports, some bombers. You have to be careful though. The regular mix a six does NOT include the top row in each cooler, or the two doors to the farthest right. They have blue labelling, but when you're drooling over beer, it can be easy to miss the first couple of times. There are also some 4 & 6 packs out on the limited floor space.

Food is extremely basic, just enough to get around PA beer laws.

It would be nice if the beers were priced, and there is the occasional freshness issue. The main thing to watch for is pricing on some of the "bigger" 12oz beers. Rubeus was $5.00 a bottle, Devil Dancer &7.00. Once picked up two DFH WWS at $16.00 each. Ouch.

Overall though, I really like the place, glad it's here.

A great selection for picking up less than a case in SC PA. The selection is good, especially when seasonal offerings come on from breweries. The extreme beers can sometimes be a bit dated and lack freshness. You pay for the luxury of good help and a better selection when choosing to buy less than a case here.
