I sat at the bar downsairs on a Saturday with my brother with maybe four other people in the entire pub. It was very cozy and it was also very tiny, with the brewhouse equipment sharing floorspace with the bar. The small size definitely added to the overall charm of the place.

The artsy mugs all over the wall and hanging from a rack next to the bar provided colorful decor, and the wooden chairs were comfy enough.

Unfortunately, there were only four beers on tap (normally they have eight, at least they had eight taps) the night we were there. The food was good and reasonably priced; I had a tasty turkey and pesto grilled cheese that was spot on, while my brother enjoyed his salad.

I drank the overbite IPA and enjoyed the kick-you-in-the-face hoppiness of it.

On a side note, watch out for horrifyingly large spiders on just about everything along the street outside. Arachnaphobiacs like myself may be advised to just walk down the middle of the street.

Cool store front operation...Bar on the left, dining are on right (looked like there is an upstairs, but did not go there). Bar seats about 12. A dozen beers on tap, the 3 I had were solid. Did not try the food.

The place has a nice old style pub feel only more bright and open. They had a decent selection of beers and one cask. I tried four of their beers all solid. We went light on food, but what we had was excellent. They also had a band playing good music and lots of fun.

Visited here in the summer of 2014. Quaint place with a solid food menu and real local vibe. A must visit if you're in central PA and visiting Knobels.
