I have been to ABC numerous times over the years. I joined the mug club one year w/ my buddy who got an ABC tattoo. I went with my bro tenderbranson69 the first time about 9 and a half years ago and yesterday we went again. I love the feel of the interior. They have lots of wood, a view of the brewing/ fermentation area, flags from nations known for brewing heritage, local brewery artifacts and high ceilings.

The bar area is spacious and there is an elevator that takes you upstairs to 'the Abbey' where you can play pool and see a band perform. The Abbey features beers of Belgium such as Achel, De Koninck, Delirium Tremens , De Dolle, Rochefort, and Westmalle to name a few. The Quality of the food is superb- I shared a crab quesadilla on a spinach tortilla and the Classic stromboli is just incredible w/ a honey mustard that gives it the right zip. We were there after the lunch crowd had passed and before dinner, so we got pretty good service and it wasn't too packed.

The selection of menu items and beer is great, they had about 12 styles on 20 taps, some of the beer is just average, but they had Susquehanna stout on cask and Oak aged Broadstreet barleywine. I have had many of the menu items and none of them dissapoint. You get a decent amount of food for what you pay for. They are hosting a brewfest and some of the Attendees will be Abbey Wright, Dogfish Head, Troegs, Victory, Stoudt's and Weyerbacher. They actually host several fests around summer/fall which are well attended.

I enjoyed the Penn State game w/ my bro and I got a taste of his beers which were Ok like Mad Cameron Wit and Dom Blonde Kolsch, but the Peach Lambic was so-so. It is a reasonable distance from my Grandma's house, so I swing by every so often. I got a couple of growlers filled to take to a gathering, but they also have six packs of their flagships in a cooler near the merch stand.

I recommend a visit to check out ABC, who seem like they are always growing w/ three locations now.

Love a place that is laid back and relaxing. This is it. Nice decor and scenery outside. For me it's worth the 100 mile trip. After all, it is all about the beer.

ABC is great. Their beer selection is vast and the quality is right where you want it to be, but their food can't be praised enough. The menu is unique and full of fun things to try and it delivers once you've got it. I've had the rockfish tacos and I've tried the french dip (which is braised in their Jolly Scot Ale) and they were both wonderful. Good place to go, can't wait to go back.
