Great micro brewery with a hometown vibe. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They offer 12 better on tap with a great variety of styles and ABVs. Best beer is the Irregardless IPA but I live truing their scratch series "Hop Hero" and "Manifestation".

Small food options but had multiple places that will deliver.

A must go!

Small reclaimed warehouse across the street from a minor league ball park had the feel of a place you could get rowdy in. Small bar area in front of the brew house, seats 6, with 8-12 tables spread about a 30 x 30 area. Nine beers on tap, the 2 (IPA & 2xIPA) that I had were solid. Server was friendly and one of the brewers was also behind the bar. They sell cans to go... wish more breweries did this. Had a great time there.

This Brewery is a gem for those looking for a smaller very personal atmosphere that is filled with hop lovers. The building is brimming with history where very few architectural upgrades have been made to maintain its rustic and historical appeal. One of the few areas where you more often than not will be served by the owner who's love of the craft shows admiringly.

Upstart size capacity with limited rotating selection that I have found to be brewed exceptionally well. They have an all star IPA line up. The Extended Stay Session IPA has the flavor you wouldn't expect from something so easy to drink, the Irregardless IPA is the best I have had on the East Coast and the What the Floc 2x IPA is dangerously tasty and drinkable. If you are an IPA lover that seeks out enticing aromatic beer that delivers balance and piney citrus notes from the front to back end of each sip then this lineup is worth trying.

There are several good breweries located within 5-15 miles from me and I still will drive the 30 minutes during a week day just to frequent Liquid Hero. I am excited to see them grow and continue to be slightly daring in their brewing methods.

Originally from York. Wife and I stopped in during a family visit. Like the other reviews, it's a small old warehouse, with maybe a dozen tables. It was slow when we were there so space wasn't an issue. Ordered a flight, got 9 beers. All but two (Irregardless IPA and Heroweizen) were terrible, and those two that didn't suck were mediocre, standard to the style. Everything had a slight hint of metal. Both she and I were thoroughly disappointed, to the point of where we didn't finish our beer, and let's be honest, who wants to waste beer. I give them credit for starting up the beer movement in York, but their stuff is garbage. Clearly an issue of quantity over quality. Rather than make 3-4 good beers, they make a bunch of mediocre-bad ones.

I can honestly say this is one of the coolest places I've drank beer in the area. The environment is lax and welcoming with beer enthusiasts being the crowd. Won't find any snobby folk here. The owners are great guys, whom I have met and talked with several times. They even gave my brother and I a short tour of the brewing facilities in the back of the pub. It's a must-stop if you're in York. If you live in York and drink beer and haven't been here, you are failing at life. Joking.

Beers are pretty good with a few hit or misses depending on your tastes. I fell in love with the imperial stout on nitro and consumed several in one sitting. The American Hero is a steadfast part of the brewpub and a must-try if you're there. Plus it's right next to a ballpark!! Beer and baseball... York doesn't seem too shabby when you're sitting on a stool at Liquid Hero.

A couple of things right off the bat - the parking lot is insanely cramped, and it can be a pain to get a spot on a weekend, which is prime time for Liquid Hero. The building is also a bit narrow on the side facing the street, and you can easily pass it by without even realizing it. Now, the good part - this place is great. I believe there were nine brews on tap when I went with my girlfriend, and a flight of all nine (in generous 5oz snifters) was something like $20. I wasn't expecting much, but the beers were all solid to above average, with their Freight House Porter standing at the top of the pack along with some other darker beers. Staff was very friendly, and I liked the vibe of the place despite it being a smaller venue. I think these guys can really start to make an impact in the future, but they're a little limited at the moment.
