I have been to spring house taproom 3 times now the first was an evening dropping off homebrew to enter the competition they sponsored to have them brew the winning beer and had a pint with stakem. The second the day of the results being read for the competition I was here about 10 minutes -it was so loud and crowded I couldn't make it to the bar for a pint and left after meeting a friend and went to Iron Hill. The last occasion was not quite as hectic I came with my brother and cousin and we all had a pint while waiting for Pour on Prince to open on a Sunday afternoon.

The atmoshpher is a standard bar with some of Spring House's label art displayed on the wall, the place is loud even when it isn't crowded because it is all hard surfaces and there is nothing to soften the reverb. I think the beer is better than average but overall it is not the best choice of Lancaster city beer bars for selection or service. I would come here if meeting someone on a slow night but in general I am not really going to make this my first choice of places to go when in Lancaster. I never tried the food, but I have heard good things. I guess it depends on how much you love Spring House beer, to me they are kind of hit or miss, so take that with a grain of salt.

I had a delicious mint stout and a delicious peanut butter stout here. These varieties of stouts have eluded me ever since, aside from Stone's Collab Mint Chocolate Stout (which was phenomenal), and a Peanut Butter porter I had recently. I don't know if they carry these year-round but I really want to try them again. The taproom was located around lots of other establishments in downtown Lancaster and I love the cobblestone walkways in town. I wish I'd spent more time here. They have a shuffleboard, which is neat. Their craft beer choices were solid too. If I'm ever in Lancaster again, I'll be coming back here without a doubt.

Taproom is a must stop if you would like to enjoy a great stout, or even their seven gates ipa. Typically I have good service, but I have hit some off nights as well when it gets packed. In the summer its always nice to enjoy your beer and maybe some food outside, though it is limited to only a few tables. The food is also good, but kinda limited. You have some appetizers as well as sub's and pizza. The prices are a little high for the quantity, but that's where quality comes into play. You can also pick up a bomber to take home with you or share with a friend, or even some Spring House merchandise.
