This place is located right on Rt. 611, just about 2 miles north of the PA Turnpike exit. There is plenty of parking behind the building. Upon entering the big wooden door, you will see a dimly lit but very clean room. The atmosphere is comfortable and very much a pub. A large bar can seat about 25 and the dining area is in the same area as the bar. Plenty of TVs playing several soccer games, and the crowd seemed to be there to enjoy the games.

Beerwise there were 36 beers on tap and cover a wide variety of styles. Beers ranged from Scotch Ales, Stouts, DIPAs, and Strong Ales. Specific selections like St. Bernardus 12, Founder Centennial, Southern Tier 2X IPA, Chimay White, and Yard's GW Porter, were some of the beers on tap during this visit. The beers we had were fresh and of good quality.

The food we ordered was off the pub menu and was decent. The menu is also quite varied so everyone should find something they like here. Service was OK but not overly prompt, but there was a decent sized crowd here.

This is definitely worth a stop if anyone is in the area. I plan to make this a regular stop when I am in the area.

First floor is a nice little bar/restaurant with 40 or so beers on tap. Food is good, express lunch buffet from M-F is a nice touch. Upstairs is a small whiskey bar with 3-4 higher end beers on tap, also had local cold brew coffee on a nitro tap which is an awesome touch. Bottle shop is well laid out, everything marked with a price and easy to see. Walk in climate controlled beer cellar is very nice as well. Prices tended to be on the high side but overall a place I will stop at anytime I'm in the area again.

Great feel. Great service. Great beer selection. The menu seemed a bit limited but certainly adequate. Putting this place at the top of my favorites list for close to home hang outs.

This place has two components: the restaurant / bar and the bottle shop.

The restaurant has 40 beers on tap, with a great selection of local, national and international offerings, lots of seasonals and all that. There's also a large bottles list.

It's got a wood and iron, basementy sort of vibe that actually hits pretty close to the mark of being warm and comfortable and just a little bit faux. (The Loft has a small bar and sitting area that hits even closer to the "old world charm" thing they're going for.)

The food is hit or miss. Some items are really good, others are okay, and I've had one item (the pork shank) that was plain awful. Same goes for the service. The owners are great, extremely knowledgable and friendly. I've had some servers who are also great, some that are average and others that are completely inattentive.

They call the bottle shop the Loft. The staff there has always been top notch. They've got a huge, fancy-ass walk in cooler organized by style with the bottles displayed beautifully. Unlike other shops with thousands of bottles, this one has maybe 800 or so, but it has a "curated" feel and rotating selection that makes browsing much easier and more enjoyable. Prices are high, but they've got some amazing bottles, and what can you do, it's Pennsylvania.

They've also got four taps upstairs, a coffee bar, some cheese and meats.

I've been here many times and will be back again. Wish the food and service was consistent, but with what else they've got going for them (the beer!) it's still worth it.
