This was my final stop on my way back into the burgh form my 'round PA trip. Hit Otto's just after 2pm for a late lunch.
You enter through the side of the building where there are two large dining areas. I was greeted by the hostess and went straight to the bar area.
The bar room has a few booths, some high top tables and a small bar along one wall. There were a pretty good amount of people there for a Thursday mid-afternoon!
The beer selection is what you would expect from a brew pub...each major style represented. The food menu is also sports bar average. I selected a chicken salad wrap and their nitro-tap stout.
The service was excellent...my waitress stopped by frequently to see how things were. Pricing on the food is pretty much in line with other establishments, and the beer is pretty affordable (actually a little cheaper than I was expecting).
If you are in the State College area, you have to stop by Otto's. Well worth the trip!

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!!!
