This is a must-see for beer entusiasts who visit the Harrisburg area. The brewery/restaurant/bar is located on the outskirts of center city, but is easily reached from the Cameron Street Exit of I-81 or the 2nd street exit if I-83. It is spacious and accomodating. The restaurant offers a great view of the brew tanks (and the lovely waitresses). The menu is adequte with a wide assortment of food items ranging from sandwiches to vegetarian chili (even for a meatatarian, its good).
The upstairs offers a great bar atmosphere with an even higher view of the brew tanks. Pool tables, dart boards and some other games offer some distraction. Try all the different beers at once with their sampler rack.

Appalachian is an off the beaten path brewpub well worth the time to visit. A large, good looking dining room surrounds the immense bar and it's 8 inhouse brew taps. Be careful when ordering the sampler, because you get 8 six ounce glasses, if your driving any distance. Of the 8 that I tried, all were distinctive and true to style. The best was Purist Pale Ale, with it's crisp, hop accented flavor, and the Susquehanna Stout a close second. The food was tasty and of very good quality. This is a pub I would go out of my way for in future travels through the region.
