Place had a really cool, old, relaxing "I want to hang out for awhile" vibe. We were able to try pretty much every offering they had since they do tasters. You could get full pints or growlers filled too. I was amazed by the amount of beers they were pouring from cask. I think 5 when we were there. Food was limited but everything we had was good (Elk sausage, and soft pretzels). The girls in our group complained about the cold even with a big fire going in the fireplace. It is a massive open space to try and heat/cool not sure what it's like in the middle of summer. Will just have to head back for a summer visit!

Located in the same nice, historic space that housed the awful Gettysbrew. About a mile off the beaten path, you leave Rt. 30 and cross the railroad tracks- just about when you start thinking you are in the wrong spot- it is on the left (hope they improve lighting and signage). The building is an old barn and was of course used as a hospital during the battle of Gettysburg- modernized a bit, but still retains it's barn appearance. Service is done by approaching the bar/ kitchen and ordering. Always loved that system and I've only seen it done at the late, great Gettysburg Brewing Company. Hope they keep it. Staff seems dedicated and the brewers are definitely pushing the beer envelope (unlike the steady, but boring Appalachian BC which now has TWO locations in town). This place seems to be undergoing some growing pains and service was a bit chaotic- which is to be expected. I tried the imperial IPA, the pumpkin IPA (on cask) and the Russian imperial stout- all of which were awesome. Both nights we were there the menu was all barbecue and my group was not in the mood- but that is not their regular menu. The almost ten year drought of quality craft beer is apparently over!!!! I love Civil War again!

Great find in the Gettysburg, PA area. The brewery is in a large renovated 19th century barn which served as a field hospital for the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. It's rustic large area features a band/dance area, tables and chairs and a small bar. The history surrounds you and is highlighted by the fact that some of the floor area is original., where Southern soldiers actually rested and were treated for their wounds. Brewer Dan Kulick's vision and passion for the American Wounded Warrior, all Veterans and his honoring of the fallen at the battle of Gettysburg is so righteous and admirable. He spotlights his support for the Red Circle Foundation with a special red ale and partial proceeds going to RCF.
OK...now the people and the beer. Great people! Friendly, helpful and love what they're doing. Just so easy to sit and talk beer or whatever. Flights and growlers are available. Dan is a seasoned brewer transplanted from Pittsburgh, who is justifiably proud of his growing continuing line of standing beers and one offs. Oh and by the way...he usually has 4-5 of his beers on cask. His beers include lagers like a bohemian pilsner and a double bock. His ales include a nice set of IPAs and Imp Stouts. Oh...but a word of either caution or encouragement...7 of his 10 beers this trip were 8.5-11.5% ABV. So expect some big beer fun on tap, on nitro or hand pulled from the cask. Doesn't get much better.
Wines from Brookmere and Reeds, hard cider (both regular and bourbon barrel aged) from local Good Intent cidery as well as in house brewed root beer and ginger ale provide great alternatives. Food is spot on with a variety of sausage sandwiches including wild boar, smoked elk and a whiskey and cherry pork Brat. Throw in some quesadillas, local soft pretzel and sides...yum.

While in Gettysburg for the weekend we were looking for a nice place to relax and have a beer. A local merchant recommended a new brewery called Battlefield Brew Works which just opened late July. We went not really knowing what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised.
The place is in a old barn that the Confederates made into a hospital... I see dead people!
Just kiddin. What a great atmosphere! We met Dan and his wife kylie. Good people.
I had the Extreme hop artillery Ipa from the cask and the wife had the Red circle American red ale. We both were very happy soldiers. The couple do not have a kitchen as of yet but I can tell you the sausages and pretzel were not too shabby. I would definitely go back again.
