Love Alís. Iíd be there every night if I didnít live 40 minutes away.
The ambiance is a bit stark, but thatís hardly a concern when one considers all of the other great aspects of Alís. The owner and staff have gone to great lengths to establish a rapport with locals and regulars, and facilitate interactions between their patrons. There is a great sense of community there that will very quickly make you forget about the utilitarian design of the place. Really, everything else ambiance wise is secondary to the camaraderie that exists here.
I canít really fault the place for the lack of table service, as I think itís important to keep in mind that the restaurant portion, at its heart, is old-school pizza joint. More service isnít always better service, and preservation of a tradition sometimes takes precedence. Beyond that, the staff is fantastic. Helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate.
The tap selection is quite amazing, and thoughtfully composed. The bottle selection is also excellent with some of the best prices youíll find for bottles and six packs anywhere in the state.
The food is, well, itís a pizza shop, so set your expectations appropriately. Itís unpretentious, and well prepared.
And all of that without even mentioning the house-brewed beers! What else can be said about Terry Hawbakerís brews that hasnít already been said? Heís a world class brewer doing what world class brewers do!
All in all, this is a canít-miss place that you should definitely go out of your way for.

AKA Pizza Boy Brewing. Such an unusual place. We were there 2 weeks after they moved into their new location. Itís in this BRIGHTLY lit metal building with high ceilings and a rather sterile atmosphere, although there were a couple bar arcade games and sports on the TVs. Families with kids even till they closed (at 11) on a Thursday. But 100!! taps, about 15 of which were made there. Their house beers were decent, and their selection of American crafts from around the country was excellent. The best prices Iíve ever seen in a bar on beer this good, but I guess thatís the advantage of drinking in a brightly lit warehouse in the middle of nowhere, PA. The food (we had pizza and a salad) were ok, nothing special. I only knock the service because you have to go up to the bar/counter to order everything. The staff is very friendly though. They also have a great selection of bottles to go, and they sell growlers (64 or 32 oz) of most of what they have on tap. Definitely go here if youíre in the Harrisburg area.

Definitely a great place for all beer lovers. Draft selection is varied and can be quite unique, depending on how lucky your timing is. Gotta love the option of cask beer--too few places offer a real pint, but itís understandable given the perishable nature of the product. Food is average to slightly above, especially if you take advantage of their daily specials as I sometimes do. Pizza Boyís house brews are evolving and, in my opinion, improving. Biggest criticism is the lack of space, which should be a non-factor when their new location opens. Looking forward (with fingers crossed) to a great brew in their new digs later this year.

like a smallish pizza joint with really good beer and good food crammed in. a few tables with stools and tv. pizza counter with good Italian food and an herb type tomato sauce. good bottle collection and home brewed type beers. each catagory could have gone a point higher but the areaís folks seem a bit depressed...i oughta know.

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.

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.

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.

Just fell into the place by accident. We were staying at the hotel across the street and Urbanspoon gave it a good rating. I didnít know they had so much beer! Way too crowded and the mix six pack was expensive, but I stocked up! The family loved the pizza, service was great, I had the Pizza Boy sampler and we took food home. Other than being cramped, what wasnít there to love?

Tap selection is very large. Mixed singles selection average to below. Very crowded and not a lot of seating. Little like it available in the area so it gets a bump for being an oasis in the middle of a beer variety desert.
