-Small boxy warehouse style building, industrial looking, with a side entrance and patio to drink outside. Ample parking in the back, seems like this is a hotspot for the bicycle enthusiasts as they tend to stop by regularly though the scenic town of Epharata. Inside is very basic, open area, with a serving bar, seats 10, and brewing area to rear, could use some more tables and chairs to fill the empty void, as place seemed pretty packed 15 people on a saturday. Reminded me a bit of One Guy brewing when first opened.

Service was good, the gem of this place is in the pricing, most beers coming in at $4.50 (at time of review) including the hoppy double ipa libation and 3lb ipa. There were about 8 beers on tap at time of sampling, ESB, stout, 3 ipas, belgian pale, pilsner, berliner weiss so a decent selection. There is no food service/kitchen though on weekends they do have different food trucks arranged to stop by in the parking lot, prices seemed moderate, some good offerings, though i did not actually try anything off it. Pizza can be ordered from across the street and delivered..

Thier two best beers Libation and Paideia are offered in six pack form and crowlers at very reasonable rates. crowlers $10, as well growlers $12. A decent selection of merchandise from shirts and caps, again very reasonablely priced. The beers are very solid, clean, and very drinkable from the ones i sampled. Payment is due upon service, in otherwords, pay per beer or they will request to hold your CC until after you are done, seems like they have had quite a bit of drink and go's which i found surprising from an other wise very friendly little town. Niced one off offerings#. Other then that nice little spot to grab some good quality, cheap brews, friendly crowd, was talking with a couple first time there from phoenixville who traveled to check them out, cheers.

This is a simple set up; brewing really, really solid brews. The Berlinner, Mild, and citra hopped pale ale are all fantastic beers. Come here for great beer and a friendly environment. This is an up and coming brewery. Look forward to much more in the future, very impressed so far.

Always a good stop in Ephrata, PA. No food in house, but usually a food truck outside. Beer selection is limited to about 6 or 8 taps, usually an IPA, stout, pale, ESB etc on tap with a few other offerings. Highly recommend.
