The place formerly known as LMBC was the first stop of the 2 day mega central PA brewery tour. Stoudt's was to be first, but they don't open 'til 12:00, we were there 11:30ish. Oh well, that was the only stop that we'd been to before, so no big loss.

So we get to LBC like noonish, muscle up to the bar. Liking the whole former warehouse thing they have going on, and the brewhouse being sort of below you. We split a sampler because of the amount of beers on tap (9?), plus a cask of Milk Stout/Hop Hog. A lot of lagers on tap, all solid, none too exciting. The beers we're familiar with are sort of new again, so much better fresh from the source. There's a real nice couple next to us, we talk about great places in Philly and Reading, and I recommend the infamous chocolate-covered strawberry. If you don't know what this is, well what the hell is wrong with you? They loved it, and the guy wasn't a fruit beer guy even.

But I digress. The service was awesome, our bartender was very nice, and the food was fantastic. I had the lamb burger, done to perfection, and my wonderful ladyfriend had the chicken wrap.

Finished up our little glasses and we were on the road again...right to our main destination...

Great food and vibe, but the clientele left much to be desired. I had the meatloaf on mashed potatoes with the milk stout gravy and carrots, and it was excellent. The beer was also great.
