This is a pizza joint. Itís an Italian deli. Itís a beer store. Oh, and itís a brewpub. Hard to find, we passed it three times, and actually switched to a different GPS, then had to stop and ask at the hotel across the street. It was worth the effort. Filled to the brim with locals, plus a steady parade of people coming in for pizzas or growler fills (and, oddly, a case of PBR or Miller Lite - fools!). The pizza is terrific, and the beers are interesting enough to keep coming back. Plus, the selection of guest taps is very solid. And the prices?? $4 a beer, holy cow! Great place, and now that Terry Hawbaker is brewing here, Iíll definitely be back. 5-8-13-8-9-18, 88. SECOND RATING, now that theyíve moved into their new digs. The brewery portion is amazing, all new Braukon stuff, and now surrounded by barrels of every flavor, red wine, white wine, rum, bourbon. Seems like every small nook and cranny had a barrel in it. There are far more beers on tap, with the usual amazing stuff by Terry, some with fruit added, courtesy of Al. The pizza, thankfully, is just as delicious, the bottle shop is the same. Growler fills still available. Therstar of the show was the Pizza Boy sours in bottles for in house consumption. Staff is terrific, and Terry took time out from his long day (already past 6 pm) to show us around, share some beers and chat. Amazing place, worth going well out of your way to find. The only way to improve, I think, would be for them to offer sampler sizes (say, 4 ounces), especially now that the number of taps has grown so much. I want to try them all!

What a find this place is. Itís in the middle of nowhere but there were a lot of people there on a Sunday night. The turn is a bit tight so watch out for it.. I didnít have the food so I canít talk of it. They had over 20 taps and most of them were unusual or rare selections for the area. They do a lot regional craft and also there seems to be some Belgiaphilia there as well. They sell growlers of their draft but they also sell samplers as well. They also have a fairly sizable make your own sixer section. Itís a bit pricey at $14 a sixer but your are getting it 1. cold and 2. to go from a restaurant so it could be worse. The also had a nice large bottle selection including 4 from Lost Abbey which I was shocked to find.. I thought Philly was the only place you could find it on the east coast. The guy behind the counter was really nice as well. Iíll definitely stop back when Iím in the area.

Very cool place enjoyed after a Troegís Splinter release. Unassuming exterior. Inside it is crowded, cramped, and a lot of fun. Heavy, large portion Italian food served very informally. Just eat your food from a red plastic basket on a red and white checkerboard table cloth. I had a pretty boss Italian sub. But you are surrounded by fridges of craft beer everywhere and quite a lot of top notch stuff on tap as well. Very interesting concept. I found Alesmith, Lost Abbey, Ballast Point, Hair of the Dog, and local PA stuff. Bottle prices were a little on the expensive side for the gray market stuff. Tap beers are very cheap and are all listed on a organized flat panel monitor so you can see exactly what is on tap. Quick service, fun atmosphere. Just slightly overwhelming and a bit cramped. Also in the middle of nowhere. Now they have a new brewer, former brewer for Cabinet Artisanal and Bullfrog, so their "Pizza Boy" house beers should be getting quite awesome.

Located in a mini-strip mall next to a fairly residential area. Itís RIGHT off the interstate, which makes it convenient. Itís a pizza/sub kinda joint, and the bacon cheeseburger sub I had was tasty. It was fairly steady the whole time I was there especially for mid-day on a work day. I can imagine this place gets crowded. Lots of taps with their own beers and a lot of other high quality craft beers, including up to three cask options at a time (I had Thirsty Dog Wee Heavy on Cherries). The four Pizza Boy (the house brand) beers I had were all good. A sampler of 5 beers is $10 and my total bill including tax was less than $19. Prices on full pours looked solid. They fill growlers but I didnít see growler fill prices. Tons of bottle options to go. Some prices were high, some were quite reasonable. The people there were really helpful and friendly. If I lived around here, this would be my local.

This is a very unassuming place, but itís a great beer destination. Located in a large warehouse/pizzeria. Very family friendly - there are plenty of tables, many of which included little kids. There are some arcade games in the back. There is a bar but no bar service. And several TVs too. Tons of taps (officially 100, but there were probably ~70 on when I visited). There are around 10 Pizza Boy taps, which included several IPAs, saisons, and sour ales. And then a number of other beers, including some stuff not usually seen in this area (Alesmith IPA, Du Claw, for starters). The pizza was pretty standard, plus they had sandwiches as well. Overall, this place has more beers than you could ever want. Definitely worth seeking out.

Donít mean to give a bad rating but, i came around 5PM on a Tuesday and wasnít ready for the dinner "rush". There wasnít anywhere to sit except for tables or booths that were for 4 people (all of them). Once I did about 4 or 5 families with infants came in. Not a very good atmosphere to sit and drink a beer. I had a brooklyn concoction and i dont know if it was the lines or the age of the beer or maybe just the beer but it was terrible. The slice of pizza was extremely greasy and sub-par. I hear they are opening their own brewpub in the basement so maybe they can make that the showpiece. Selection was good though for 6 packs and about 20 beers on tap.

Cool place, just off I-81. Itís pretty small and can get quite packed. The pizza is good, they have subs on as well that look delicious. Great variety of beer to drink on premises, it also doubles as a beer store where you can buy mixed singles. The prices are good for restaurant, a tad expensive for carry-out. They do growler fills of almost everything on tap too. Their beers are also quite tasty.

Not the biggest place in the world, in fact it is downright small, but it makes up for it with good food and even better beer. I have tried just about everything on the menu now and have never been disappointed. The subs are great, and the pizzaís are even better. I prefer the buffalo chicken pizza and or boil.

Now on to the good part, the beer selection. Simply put, there is no better selection of beers on the west shore. From the 24 taps, 4 on nitro, to the 3 cask hand pulls, you will not find a better selection anywhere in the area. The mix-a-six for $13 is a good deal if you are looking to try multiple things. They also fill, and sell, growlers with most of the normal tap beers. They will soon be opening their own brewery in the basement making all kinds of interesting things...Simply put, you will not find a better place for beer in this entire area, period.

Visited on 3-12-14 Ambiance: Wide Open Interior, L Shaped Bar that can hold about 18-20 patrons, bunch of tables all over, sort of that metallic dťcor Service: Bartenders were decent and friendly, knowledgeable Selection: 102 taps of some pretty fine liquids, various styles...if you come here and cant find 5 beers to drink on any given night, youre an asshole Food: Pizza was average at best...and that is what they are supposed to be known for. Value: Some beer prices were decent, some were pricey Overall, would recommend it, especially for the selection but eat before you arrive

Great pizza and a really awesome draft selection as well as a decent bottle selection. Laid back, cafeteria style eating area. Lots of big TVs make for a good place to watch games. My only complaints are that Iíd prefer servers, at least at the bar so I didnt have to get up all the time. And I think it sucks that I canít buy at least 1 bottle of their beer to go. I travel there from far away and my only choices are to either not enjoy their BB Barleywine or irresponsibly drive after drinking it. Thats a letdown.
