4/5  rDev +1.5%

Stopped by here on my way through town. The place had just opened for business on a Wednesday and the dining room area was already filling up. You enter the dimly lit establishment with the bar area to the left and the dining area to the right. The brewing equipment is set across from the entrance and located on the bottom floor, but the top of the big tanks are in plain view. You can look over the railing and see the rest of the equipment a brewers. The floor is covered in strange rubber mats...but they add to the place somehow. I settled down at the bar (small L shape) and tasted a few of the offerings.

They had their usual suspects on draft as well as a few "draft only" brews. You can also buy cases, sixers and mix and match sixers to go.

The staff was friendly and courteous. Even the host at the door knew his beer and helped me select a mixed six pack to go.

I will stop by here again the next time Lancaster, PA calls on me!

Visiting the restaurant at the brewery for lunch/dinner on a Sunday afternoon.

The atmosphere is cool, rustic/industrial, exposed brick and steel beams that appear to be original to the building. Also a bar area and a smal merch area behind the attendant stand, and I think there was a porch.

They had 14 beers on tap, and you can order a sampler of them all. All of their regulars, a few seasonals and specials. A wide variety of styles, so you could definitely find a style you like. However most of the beers were just "okay". Probably the Milk Stout and Hop Buggy were the tops.

Food was good - I had the Steak Frites, which was great. Service was good - only complaint is that our calamari appetizer came out to the table after our entrees.
