This place was a wonderful out of the way stop on my Philly brewery crawl. Once inside you see the bar to the left and the dining area to the right . I went right to the bar and ordered a sampler. This seemed like a cool hangout for the local 20 something crowd plus cool older folks. This wasn't as upscale as others I've been to, but this is what I like about it.

The selection was outstanding. The sampler contained 11 really good beers. They brought them out on this huge tray that looked like they one's you use to eat dinner in front of the television.

The service was also good. The bartender was very cool and offered up some knowledge on the brews at hand.

Overall, this was one of the coolest brewpubs I've been to. The beer was good. The service was good, but best of all, you could go in and enjoy a few craft brews with down to earth people. I always feel like these places are geared for the upper classes, but not this one. Anyone come and have a beer, just like it should be.

They are now located at 469 Eisenhower Blvd in Harrisburg. Big restaurant. Food is good and flavorful with good presentation. Service was friendly and attentive. I found the beer to be quite good. In addition to a couple of draughts with dinner, I bought a variety pack to take home and all were very good.

I spent a year and a half in PA. This local brewery was right down the street from my place. Needless to say I probably spent too much time there.

Good ambiance, great bartenders, and good beer on tap. The food is pretty good as well.

If you are ever in the area you should definitely stop in and sample their selection.

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.

Stopped here just because I was nearby. The service was very good and the selection was decent too. I had a sampler flight while I was there just looking to try some beers I hadn't seen before. I wouldn't mind stopping back in if I were in the area.
