Stopped by LBC while visiting family in the area. I'd heard of their award-winning Dulachan, which was the 1st on my list to sample. Superbly executed from start to finish; also had the Farmhouse Saison and the Red, which provided an equally satisfying drinking experience. Liked the friendly and knowledgeable staff, who supplemented the experience as well. I'd go back here in a minute and if living in Erie, I'd be a regular. My hat's off to the proprietors; staking out a craft beer presence in a town that's been the dreaded Bud-Molson-Miller lager turf for years is an achievement...long may they prosper!

Visited with my wife on a recent trip to Jamestown/Lakewood and Erie, PA.

Tried the following:
Lavery Dulachan IPA (can)
Lavery Dark Warrior Black Lager (draft)
Lavery Madra Alta IPA (draft)
Lavery Imperial French Ale (sample)

Beers ranged from middling to good. Only a few patrons in the taproom on our visit, and yet the service was underwhelming, even though we told the bartender we were visiting from Toronto. Didn’t try the food as we ate at Cloud 9 before coming here. Our overall experience was okay, but given the average quality of the beer and the substandard service, I don’t think we’d come back. Disappointing.

Large taproom with friendly and knowledgeable service. Fights offered. Beers were quite good and there was a wide assortment available on tap and to go as well. Small sample tastes are given which is a great way to weed out beers you dont like when not doing flights. Rather large food menu for a brewery, everything we tried was good to very good. Pretzels pair perfectly with IPA's. Friendly group of people in the tap room, easy conversation with strangers.

Tucked away in an old industrial building, you go in at the one side of the building and you think you are walking into the brewery. Just keep walking around it and you come to a spacious tap room with every friendly and helpful service. Enjoyed the food and the beer. We had our meal at outside picnic tables. Perfect for the mild summer day in Erie.

My favorite thing about the beers I have had from this brewery: they don’t taste exactly like you might expect, but in a good way!

Will certainly go back next time in town.

Lavery has some great beers - especially if you are into IPAs. Friendly service and a nice outdoor area. Food was fine but beer was excellent. Nice neighborhood feel to the place.

My go to place for great beer, tasty eats, and friendly conversation. It's never a problem that the beer menu is always changing. We are always able to find a delicious IPA, yummy stout, or perfect pilsner. The Brewery also attracts the most interesting people from all different places. With no televisions in the pub, prepare yourself for pint improving conversation. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Owners are sincere and dedicated to the craft. Make the pilgrimage. You'll be happy you did. Slainte!

We stopped in driving thru town on a road trip with our two small kids and the place and people were the perfect medicine after a day on the road. Small limited menu but tasty nonetheless. They had 7-9 beers on tap plus root beer, we tried the IPA, Belgian cream ale and pumpkin stout. All flavorful and well crafted. Nothing overwhelming but definitely worth checking out, especially if I were local, I'd throw my support behind them and be a regular. Took a sixer of IPA cans to go, cheers from the hotel room.

Cool little joint, you can see all of the equipment when you come in. Barkeeps were very inviting (especially with our 3 kids). No food when we went, they had a food truck outside. Quality disclaimer: most of their brews were nice, clean, etc. However, their Berliner had major issues and should NOT have been on tap. It smelled like barf. Was not properly soured. It should have been detected and dumped. Other brews were just fine, rauchbier, pumpkin stout, black lager, and Dulachian IPA (with Voodoo). Lace Curtain Belgian was really nice. Honestly, I wouldn't go back personally due to the Berliner issue, but they are probably still worth a shot in Erie.

Awesome spot for a quick pick up, or a flight session while playing connect four with the fam. Great beer, great food, keep it simple. This place knows what it's doing. Imperial farmhouse is world class. Cheers!
