This is a review of the bottle shop only - didn't drink or eat at the gastropub.

small separate room at the back of the building - a couple shelves of room temperature beer - those shelves are mostly import and large format bottles. then a cooler with about 6 doors - all single bottles, individually prices. Quality is all very good - they are focused mostly on limited and harder to find beers. Prices are a bit high but sort of expected given the selection and single bottle pricing.

Hunger N Thirst is kind of like three businesses in one. There's the gastropub which is the main focus, but then there's also a marketplace where they sell meats and cheeses and other gourmet items, and a well stocked bottle shop.

It has an interesting feel to it that I find hard to describe. It's a little bit retro-industrial, a little bit farmhouse, but also very clean and "crisp". The floor in the pub is concrete, but it's wood in the market and bottle shop. The bar is mostly natural wood, but it's also copper-topped at one end. The walls are white and gold and exposed brick, and there are exposed steel beams in the pub while the market has wood. It's open and airy and comfortable; and there's outdoor seating as well.

There are 24 beers on tap, all of which are thoughtfully chosen, and without anything common or mainstream. The selection constantly changes, but they have a good selection of Pennsylvania beers, quality nationals, and a handful of English, German and Belgians throughout.

I've never had the food, and I'd rather not take the time to list samples here so I'll just direct you to their website.

Overall I'd call it a very worthwhile stop.

This place looks like it will be nothing but beards, waxed moustaches, and girls with full-sleeve tattoos. And, it kind of is. But, I've had almost universally wonderful service there (if I simply exclude the lady who seemed to be sick, hungover, or maybe currently inebriated).

Otherwise, I've had helpful staff pouring me beers styles that I just never, ever see on draft. My first visit, there was a sour tasting later that night, and they sold me sour after sour before the event. I even got an ESB, something I never see on draft outside of the UK or a British-themed pub. They have 24 taps, with the beer, style, ABV, and pour volume displayed on two big flatscreens above the taps. They'll make a flight of whatever, with the prices determined by what you choose. They have a lot of small, local breweries.

The menu is small, and I've only had one meal there. It was tasty, but I don't consider this a dining destination, more a 'trying lots of new beers' place.

There's a little gourmet shop and a bottle shop. Both are expensive but have some nice finds.

Its a cool looking place on the inside, outdoor would be great when it gets warmer
beer selection was OK but relative to most places in the area it was great
service was fine, they did not rush to serve you in a relatively quite night
I would go back, but they need some more simple foods on the menu for me

My go to bottle shop in Lancaster. Always something worth picking up in the bottle shop and chatting with Jeremy. The food and service has always been good for me, as well as a neat and clean establishment. No matter who you run into in there will be highly knowledgeable and efficient as well no matter how busy there are (which is usually fairly so).

One of few choices here in Lancater county. Pretty damn good selection. However when I chat up the guys running the register I get short, snobish answers. One guy tried to tell me that SN Narwhal came out in the spring! Great bottle shop, just needs a little more personality.
