We took Stoudt's in after the beerfest a little while back. Upon entering, the first thing you hit is a '28 Packard in the front foyer. And then you're in the bar, which seats a dozen and houses 2 towers of 5 beers a piece and a cask. There's a most impressive large case on the wall behind the bar displaying the many GABF metals they've won. Seating in a room at one end of the bar, in the bar area itself, in a small enclosed private room which holds a handful of tables, and off the other end of the bar, a most amazing room... A large red room with a black ceiling and red plaid carpet, a dozen tables, a mirrored mantle above the fireplace, a pair of comfy chairs in the corner, stained glass skylights and a large wooden chandelier which Yen described by saying, "That is one bad ass chandelier". True that. The room holds a good collection of ancient brewerania... Three glass cases of beer steins, Pabst, Yuengling, Carling Black Label, Iron City and Piels posters, beer trays from Rhinegold, Ballantine & brewers long gone, pictures of horse drawn wagons delivering beer, old breweries and ancient cars with barrels. There's a second floor perch that wraps around 3 sides of this room with old beer bottles, growlers and mini kegs of all sizes and shapes lining the walls. There's an old green Rodenbach bottle up there. It smiled at me, knowingly.
In the dining area off the bar... a bunch of tables, a low red pressed tin ceiling, with French theatre posters and old political campaign posters (Jefferson Davis, Rutherford B Hayes, Teddy Roosevelt). Good stuff. There's a raw bar down towards the end of the room with had, according to Yen, "Giant freakin' Oysters", which he also described as being, "Creepy big". They've also got cheeses and smoked fish.
And on tap... 10 house beers (Pils, Double, Triple, Weizen, Lager, ESB, Fest, Stout, American Pale Ale, Maibock) and the cask IPA. Outstanding. You really want to see this place.

The exterior looks new, but the interior is vintage. It has interesting history... There are lots of fun and unique antiques. It is unique and totally fun!

Ate at the restaurant and had some beers. The decor in the restaurant is an attempt at German beer house, but it seems a bit dated and stale. I've also been to a beerfest that was in the back "indoor beer garden" area.

Quality of the beer is okay, they do basic styles well, but nothing very innovative. But you can find a beer you would like. Service was good. The food is steaks and German and PA Dutch cooking - sausages, spaetzle, schnitzel, etc. It was okay.
