I hit up North Country Brewing on the recommendation of BA members when I was in PA this past August. It was a wonderful experience. Other reviewers have summed up this place very well, so I'll touch on the highlights.

Atmosphere - fantastic. Rustic, curious wood is everywhere. It looks rather treehouse-ish and hand crafted (and is.) It's unique without being kitchsy and fascinating without being over the top. A welcome and cozy "warm" place with interesting nooks and crannies everywhere. Wonderful.

Food - quite solid. The wings were massive and crispy-hot, fresh from the kitchen. I had a fine ratatouille baked inside an eggplant and my family enjoyed their soup and salad. While not superb, it was all quite above average for pub food.

Service -- a hair shy of outstanding. Our server was fairly new, but he was most accommodating and quick on his feet. Dishes were served quickly and mistakes rectified immediately. No real complaints. Wish I could remember his name as he was a friendly guy.

Ah yes, the beer! It runs the gamut from okay to delicious. Think BA scores of 3.3 - 4.4 or thereabouts. I tried the sampler which is the way to go for newcomers. There was a surprising cask ale (apparently they keep a cask on hand at all times with a rotating selection) and while it wasn't my favorite I was quite glad to see it there. None of the beer was off and all was served at a fine temp.

Bottom line is, I loved this place and will happily go again next year during my annual Pennsic trip. If you love beer and get near Slippery Rock, North Country is a must-stop. May their beer never run short!

I'm a local from slippery rock and not some wannabe hipster college student. If you've never drank good beer before you might think some of their beers are good but compared to some of the bigger breweries out east like troegs and victory their beer may as well be coors and miller. The place is a wannabe hipster joint and the food is mediocre at best. If your an old person or some hipster this might be the place for you but if you like good beer STAY AWAY

Their brews are excellent! The food is delicious! And the atmosphere is very fun and interesting! Pretty much cut and dry as far as reviews go. All I can say is go check it out and you will not be disappointed!

This is a cool place. On the main street of Slippery Rock, it is easy to find. The atmosphere is neat. It has a country feel to it that is akin to the area. The food was really good. My wife and I each ordered a different sandwich for lunch and both were great. The soup I had was also righteous. There were about 15 beers on tap spanning the range of pilsener to stout and everything in between. I had a recently brewed winter warmer that was pretty good. I have only had one other (Buck Snort) which is also a good American Stout.

The tables are small and a little cramped. That is my only minor complaint. If you are passing through the area, you should make a point of a pop-in.
