Loved this place! Warm and friendly atmosphere with great service. Did a flight of six and loved the Vanilla Porter and their IPA. The IPA uses all bittering hops so more of an ESB than a IPA but still very good. The porter to me is a 5.0 as I loved the vanilla finish! I am not a fan of porters being a hop head, but took a growler home for my friends to try. Also brought home a growler of IPA. I had the fish and chips. Was very surprised how good this was! Served like you would get in Europe with lightly breaded and flaky fish over hand cut fries. Excellent!! We also took home their wings!! They were also very good and twice the size of any wings I have seen in this area. A must visit place for the beer lovers in us!!

What a cool, odd place this is! Mansfield is a small town in the gentle mountains between Williamsport, PA, and Corning, NY. There is a small university in town so you get that young, funky vibe around.

Yorkholo is a fun place. We were there for lunch on a Saturday afternoon and it was almost empty. They were out of 4 of the 10 taps (no Raspberry, White, Abbey or Chamomile spiced Saison), but that was fine with me because I had the Pennsylvania Cherry Sour Lambic, one of the best sours EVER! A three-year-old sour blended with regular Yorkholo Cherry Belgian ale. A bit pricey at nine bucks for a 14-oz pour, but so stunning.

I also tried the Cherry Belgian (rated 3, soapy and fake tasting) and the Farmhouse IPA (rated 3.6, weird). The wife got a Mountaineer IPA and liked it enough to get a growler.

The food menu is nice, with lots of veggie options. My tofu bites with bbq sauce were delicious, but the house-made pretzel with beer cheese sauce the wife got was even better.

I also got a $15 bottle of their Sour Ale that I'm going to age for a little bit.

The bill was expensive because of the bottle and my nine-dollar pours of vintage sour, but I think you could eat and drink here relatively cheap.

Nice location with 9-10 rotating taps in a vintage-style brewpub. My wife and I had the 8-beer (5 oz per) sampler flight for $10. (Six 5-oz pours for $8 is also available.) All 8 were solid although nothing blew either of us away. 20% off food during happy hour is a nice deal as well; we got a soft pretzel with beer cheese dip and it was quite good.

It would be nice if they kept their tap list updated online but from what the bartender told us their selections change quite frequently. Even still, it wouldn't be that hard.

I look forward to going back some day! Maybe when they have something really interesting on tap...they were selling 750 ml bottles of an oak barrel aged sour beer for $15 but it was not on tap.

Nice place, some beers need a little work while others are quite nice.

A nice little spot on yet another Main Street drag. Well designed and clean throughout. I had eaten before popping over here, so didn't try any grub. The Berliner-Weisse I had was pretty good. I also picked up a bottle of their saison (their first bottled beer), which I look forward to trying, of course. Kind of an out of the way location really. But if you're in the area, for whatever reason, you can't really go wrong.

I was in here Thursday, July 28th, on my way from Forty Fort to northern Potter Co. I really enjoyed my visit; tasted some beers and had the quesadilla special. It's a nice airy room lit by large windows. I think the beers were fine and I liked the chocolate wheat porter as well. The Red and the Black IPA were also very good. I would not overlook the root beer which is very tangy and sweetened just right. Scott took the time to make me feel right at home and I look forward to getting back there.

Ksak and I, en route to the Finger Lakes, hopped off Rte. 15 in the sleepy summer burg of Mansfield. Yorkholo beckoned.

Atmosphere: Warm and inviting, I really liked walking in to a 6 (or more) piece band complete with fiddle, banjo and upright bass. A long bar and plenty of tables available for seating. We cozied up to the bar. The only out-of-place item is the almost-gawdy neon 'Open' sign.

Quality: Great vibe, good service, clean restrooms. The impromptu jam band was a great aspect as well.

Service: Our bartender was friendly and talkative, making for good company. I even got some ribbing for my omnipresent notepad. But, as always, the beer geek in me won out.

Selection: 5 house beers on tap during our visit: Bungy Blonde, Heifer Hefeweizen, Panama Red Ale, Chocolate Wheat Porter, and Coal Miners Black IPA. I liked the chocolate wheat porter best of all.

Food: A nice, local-based menu. We went with a snack of bruschetta. Don't make that same mistake. Burnt slices of bread with a few stray tomatos. A number of other offerings looked good, so keep that in mind.

This was a mid afternoon stop before a 1st birthday party in the area. At this party a local told me, "It's the best hippy bar I've ever been too."

Atmosphere: A renovated portion of a row house (formerly a hair salon) located two blocks from Mansfield University. The wooden floors, brick walls and long cherry bar give the brewpub a rustic feel. There are 11 tables and 14 seats at the bar. Brewing equipment is located in the front.

Quality: The brewpub was clean. The house music was barley intrusive, leaving conversation at a natural level. There were no televisions in the brewpub.

Service: I was greeted upon entering the brewpub. The bartender enjoyed keeping conversation with everyone at the bar.

Selection: Four beers poured from deer antler tap handles during my visit, one was kicked the day before. The beers were standard styles. There is room for ten taps.

Food: House brewed root beer and cream soda along with wine from Pennsylvania is available. There are a limited number of vegetarian options on the menu. I did not order anything, as I had lunch before I arrived.
