Stopped by this place on the way to Philly.

This location is by the highway and does'nt look like the one in the picture. You enter the business to find a family dinning area to your right and a bar/taproom to your left. The staff were friendly and answered questions we had about the beer. They had a nice variety of styles available. Just average beers IMO. We were staying just a block from here so we lucked out in finding a place at 11pm. Not really a destination place but a average spot for an average beer.

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.
