Transcribed from notes dated Sa, 28 Nov 2009.

This was a narrow space, well off of the beaten path in north-central PA. The doorway opened onto the brewhouse to the immediate left, which was very reminiscent of many of the early brewpubs of the late 1980's and early 1990's. The short, blonde-wood bar ran about 3/4 of the remaining length of the left-hand side of the space. Blackboards on the wall, behind the bar, detailed their available beers, in addition to a laminated list at each of the tables. It was pretty busy on a Saturday night when I visited, so we were escorted aft to a stairway on the right hand side that led up to their second floor. They had an outdoor deck up there but it was closed for the season. The second floor also housed another bar along the left side and a series of booths along the right side. It was a pleasant place to have dinner and my notes say that they celebrated their one-year anniversary on 05 December 2009.

Beers: Six (6) were available on the occasion of my visit. They included T-Rail Pale Ale; Endless Summer Ale; Bellows Brown Ale; Old Foge Alt; Slack Tub Stout and Ludwig's Anniversary Lager. They were decent, but whatever temperature they had the serving room set to, it was too cold to enjoy the beers immediately.

Great little pub in downtown Danville, PA. Beers are interesting, atmosphere is good, and the majority of the workers are excellent! Usually have 15-18 beers available at anytime with a good variety for all palates. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

Pretty quaint looking place, some small tables to eat at along with a small bar to sit at. The service was good, the food was pretty solid as well. The selection of beers wasn't bad. Would consider stopping in again if I was in the area.

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.
