A nice restaurant/brewpub tucked away in the small town of Gettysburg. I stopped here on a Thursday evening after a long day of driving. The restaurant was fairly full but we found seats at the bar. There were quite a number of beers on tap (it looked like ~6 year-rounders + 6 "seasonals"/rotators) so there certainly is plenty to choose from. The beers we tried were pretty good - no real stand-outs but most decent. As far as food, I just got the cheddar ale soup and it was pretty good (wanted to order the chocolate peanut butter pie for dessert, but they were out :-( ). Overall a nice, cozy place to enjoy a pint. Definitely worth a stop, especially given the large selection of beers on tap.

Stopped by here on the way back home from a trip in the Lancaster area. The place looks small at first but if you poke around it is actually quite large. Iím not sure the parking lot could handle a full restaurant. Fairly laid back and casual. The food was fairly average but decently priced. Service was helpful. I tried nine beers and while there were a couple of misses (sadly one on my favorite stylse) overall they were quite good. Prices were decent overall. Beer is available to go in six and twelve packs, as well as growlers. Overall a nice stop that exceeded my expectations.

Went with my girlfriend after lunch hours on a Tuesday. Place was pretty quiet, but the building was kinda neat. Definitely better than some of the strip mall brewpubs Iíve been to. They were brewing that day, and there was a pleasant (to me) smell of mashing grains in the parking lot.
I had the 8 beer sampler, which was good, but nothing especially notable.
My girlfriend had the chedder ale soup, which she liked, but the sandwiches we got were pretty dull.

Was there for lunch on a Saturday. Service was great, food was too, with the exception of a salad that had to be taken off the bill - it was old. Had one ber, a Russian Imperial stout, which was great. Too bad the restaurant is an old non-descript building. Will go back for sure.

Located in the historic town of Gettysburg, a nice place to stop after checking out all the battlefields. We just stopped for some beer and sat at the bar. Service was good, but nothing special. The selection was very good, we mainly stopped to try some Broad St Barley Wine since they had ran out in Harrisburg. This was a nice place.

Went to gettysburg for the day and did the auto tour of the battlefield in the morning which took about 4 1/2 hours then hit this place for lunch before heading back to Pittsburgh. Outside looks like a crappy diner and they have banquet halls in the basement for rent. Atmosphere really isnít much. A lot of families eating in here, pretty typical small town family restaurant. Menu was basic bar foods, though the sandwich I ordered was really really good and totally hit the spot. They had 18 beers on tap when I was there, all appalachian beers, with a lot being ones that they make specially on site. I ordered the $10 sampler which gives you 8 samples at 5oz a piece. Me and my friends spent about 3 hours here and really enjoyed it. Definitely worth a stop.

This place was an oasis in a hot day walking around the battle fields and site seeing. I tried 4 of the beers and all were solid, nothing mind blowing but fine beer all the same. The food was great, especially the salads. There were perfect size personal pizzas for the kids and homemade root beer. The place couldnít be more conveniently located either. Directly on Seminary Ridge it is perfect for doing half of the Auto Tour and stopping for lunch. If you are in Gettysburg and appreciate beer at all it is a must stop. I recommend the Major Hops Olde Ale. Also, be aware the picture shown is of the Harrisburg Brewery. Their website has some pictures if you want to know what to look for.

Convenient location on the Chambersburg Pike (Buford Ave.), heading into Gettysburg from the west. Country pub atmosphere. The food is acceptable, if not terrific. The real attraction of this place is that it absolutely centers around the beer. Samplers of 8 are readily available, and the staff are eager to share all manner of information about styles, beer stats, etc. Table service is friendly and competent. The beer itself is reasonably good, especially the stout. I have visited Gettysburg many many times for the history, but this was my first visit to the brewpub. I will definitely return to the ABC on my next trip.

Visited 2 August 2008 (Saturday) at 4PM. Very knowledgable and helpful bartender. Excellent fresh homemade flavorful root beer. Above average food. Beer statistics on a flip menu at the table - catering to beer geeks. Beers were all above average (except the Pilsner - which had soured and should not have been served), most were very good, particularly the barleywine, the Scottish ale, and the Rye.

one of the best things going in this town i grew up in. this used to be an old crappy restaurant.... wait, itís still pretty much the same.... kitschy civil war crap on the walls. mediocre food and good beer from a broad spectrum of styles.
abc keeps me sane whilst visiting family...
