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! (945 characters)

Great food and vibe, but the clientele left much to be desired. I had the meatloaf on mashed potatoes with the milk stout gravy and carrots, and it was excellent. The beer was also great. (187 characters)
