My go-to place for great beer in the Harrisburg area. Great tap selection, I stick with trying all of the Pizza Boy stuff though. Decent bottle selection, food is good too.

Ground zero for Capitol region beer. 100 beers on tap, typically 20 of their own. Al's gets a 5+ for both quality adnd selection. The knocks? I can't reconcile the price of the sours. They're terrific, I'm willing to pay more for rarity, I get that they are more expensive to make. But it's hard to justify paying $25-30 for 750 of a sour (or even $18 for a tasty but humble Berliner Weiss), while $10 can get you some terrific half gallon growlers. And the practice of charging $3 for a growler cap is weird and off putting. Food is merely ok, although the wings are underrated. Despite the niggles, this is my go to place inthe Harrisburg area. Go there.

Their recent vibe has been off, not very customer friendly.

Used BA to find this great stop on the way through Harrisburg. Good food, great beer. Wish I had a place like this near me. Food staff was great, beer staff seemed a bit put out about doing their jobs.
