Its great to finally have a microbrew in town, and this isnt a bad one to have. The beer brewed here is all rather tasty, but I have yet to try something that blows me away. From what I understand the brewer here was from Bullfrog Brewery in Williamsport, and I think he is doing a good job, but hopefully it will move that step up from "good" sometime soon. I have not had any problems with the service here, and it is a nice place to eat. I would recommend this as a brewery to have a few beers with some friends, yet I still spend much more time at Zenos than I do here. As for the food, everything I've had has been decent, but much of it seems to look like a much better idea on the menu that it does on your plate. For instance, I would not suggest the smoked salmon personal pizza. The mussels are quite good on the other hand, and alone are a good enough reason to support this brewery.

As a beer lover and now Penn Stater I need some place to get my local beer fix. Otto's fulfilled my expectations perfectly. Since I've been here, I visited four times, and each time has been a wonderful experience.
First of all, the beer is pretty good. Not world class, not even great in some cases, but is mostly pretty darn tasty. For the craft newcomers, I'd say the Apricot Wheat, Apple Tripel, and Black Mo are safe bets. I was a big fan of the Green Hop Ale III and the Wee Heavy. Flights of 5 beers are available for $5. It's a no-brainer.
Service was great. Each time my waiter/waitress was very patient and informative.
The food might be the best part. Last time I had the Elk Burger Club. Just great. My brother has gotten the Pretzel Roll Sandwich each time he's been and that is just delicious. The fries (potato and sweet potato) are perfect.
You won't be disappointed with this place, whether you're looking for beer, food, or both.

Ottot is the original happy valley brew pub. Everything that the make is great. The food and service are top notch and the menu is exceptional for a brewpub. They take pride in what they do and it shows. The dry stout on nitro is my favorite. So we'll done! Red mo is nice too and most of their standard offerings are available in keg, case and six pack. The beer geek destination in central pa!!!
