We stopped in driving thru town on a road trip with our two small kids and the place and people were the perfect medicine after a day on the road. Small limited menu but tasty nonetheless. They had 7-9 beers on tap plus root beer, we tried the IPA, Belgian cream ale and pumpkin stout. All flavorful and well crafted. Nothing overwhelming but definitely worth checking out, especially if I were local, I'd throw my support behind them and be a regular. Took a sixer of IPA cans to go, cheers from the hotel room. (516 characters)

Cool little joint, you can see all of the equipment when you come in. Barkeeps were very inviting (especially with our 3 kids). No food when we went, they had a food truck outside. Quality disclaimer: most of their brews were nice, clean, etc. However, their Berliner had major issues and should NOT have been on tap. It smelled like barf. Was not properly soured. It should have been detected and dumped. Other brews were just fine, rauchbier, pumpkin stout, black lager, and Dulachian IPA (with Voodoo). Lace Curtain Belgian was really nice. Honestly, I wouldn't go back personally due to the Berliner issue, but they are probably still worth a shot in Erie. (660 characters)

Awesome spot for a quick pick up, or a flight session while playing connect four with the fam. Great beer, great food, keep it simple. This place knows what it's doing. Imperial farmhouse is world class. Cheers! (216 characters)

Stopped by LBC while visiting family in the area. I'd heard of their award-winning Dulachan, which was the 1st on my list to sample. Superbly executed from start to finish; also had the Farmhouse Saison and the Red, which provided an equally satisfying drinking experience. Liked the friendly and knowledgeable staff, who supplemented the experience as well. I'd go back here in a minute and if living in Erie, I'd be a regular. My hat's off to the proprietors; staking out a craft beer presence in a town that's been the dreaded Bud-Molson-Miller lager turf for years is an achievement...long may they prosper! (611 characters)

This was my first time to Lavery Brewing and the moment, I walked in the front door, I knew the place was special. There was a catwalk feel to the entrance as I was guided around the brewing facility and dropped off into a hall with a tap bar and tables. There were five beers on tap and a cider. There were three beers available in bottles. The pub menu was brief, but outstanding. Of note were the chickpea tots, the charcuterie plate, the three dips with pita bread (spicy chickpea, olive tapinade, and curry), and the macaroni grilled cheese sandwich. The beers of note were the Belgian pale ale, the rye stout aged in makers mark oak barrels and the Dula Vibes Triple IPA brewed with Voodoo. The Dula VIbes was truly outstanding. (734 characters)

Very happy that these guys finally opened up a pub. Great place to go out for a beer in Erie, and a MUST to visit if you're passing through. 6 beers on tap with growlers, half growlers, and bottles available for takeout. Menu changes and continues to grow. I've only had a few food items so far, and everything has been good. (325 characters)
