Great place to grab a bite and brew. Really good bottle list. They used to have pint night every other tuesday where you bought the pint and kept the glass. If you plan on visiting more than once start a beer passport. You have to drink a set amount of beers usually around 100 over the course of the year. They break up their whole bottle list by country and you try to drink one per country. Great place to try a bunch of different stuff. The food was always really good normal pub fare. The crab dip is to die for! The prices always seem very reasonable. I would suggest this place to anyone traveling through the area.

Full disclosure, this pub is in my hometown. But I'm greatful this jem is here. Laid back atmosphere, about twenty rotating beers on tap, including decent home made brews, plus huge bottle selection from all over the world. Annual round the world booklet. I would recommend for drinks or casual dinner. Traditional pub food, my favorite is Duke of Devonshire (sliced turkey with brie on french baguette). Several TVs with sports, live music, trivia night, there is always something going on. Can get crowded at times. Check out this Carlisle landmark.

Was at the classic car show over the weekend and decided to eat lunch at this place, it was very good and had a huge list of great beers to choose from, my chicken cheese steak and fries was delicious!

Went here for a belated birthday late lunch/early dinner with the family and a good friend. They have a huge selection of beers on tap, ciders, quite a few of their own and a rotating cask beer every month. I had their Dublin Your Luck Irish Dry Stout on cask which was very well made.
There was only one waitress on duty and she was pretty busy.
The food was good and once we placed our orders it didn't take too long for it to come out. My friend and I wanted to hang out at the bar and have a few more of the brewpubs own beers, but time did not allow for that.
Typical bar food and decent prices; a lot of sandwiches and a fairly large entree menu as well.
Definitely going back when we have more time. Carlisle is also a great town to walk around and check out the stores and shops.

Located on the main drag down the middle of Carlisle. Pretty easy to find and on-street parking was plentiful on our Friday night visit.

Multi-room setup with decent sized bar area. Disappointed in the number of house beers (2), but had quite a few guest taps going.

Food was a little lower in quality than anticipated. Good soup, but my wife's salad was disappointing. In all fairness, though, probably not the place to worry about a salad. Food came out quick and was appropriate for the price.

Service was attentive and cheerful. Can't ask for too much more.

Overall, glad we stopped and would probably go again if in the area.

This a nice spot for Carlisle. You walk in and it is dark with lots old world style charm. Lots dark wood and long bar on the right. It is kinda tight inside. They brew some of there own beer which is cool and decent. The bottles list is very good. They have a large variety and showcase lots of pa beers . I did not try any food, so I can not comment on that. One thing I did not like was the cramped factor. This came into play when folks came in for sixers. All of the bottles are stored up front and behind the bar. There is a large window right by the bottles. I would hate to see all those nice bottles be sun burned. Overall cool place
