Staff and clientele told me this is the original Appalachian location, and therefore much better than the others. It was certainly a plus to sit at the bar and watch the two brewers at work. They had a dozen beers, two on cask, and most were very solid, some were better than solid. Food was very tasty, and they even had homemade hot sauce that a customer brought it that really lights your fire. But the highlight was the genuinely friendly staff and other customers, they were terrific. I’d come back here in a heartbeat.

Typical large family restaurant brewpub experience. Food is as you would expect, with basic appetizers and sandwiches and burgers. None of that matters, because I come here to drink on my way through central PA. Selection is large, like other ABC locations, with usually 2-3 seasonals. Last time through they had the Peche and Framboise brewed by their Camp Hill location. Good service, even when crowded and a little loud (from the high, echo-y ceilings, not an over-rambunctious crowd).

For a converted warehouse, it’s surprisingly intimate. I went at 5:00 on a Saturday and the place was packed. Don’t be fooled by the small lot next to the building. They have two parking lots behind the building and then street parking behind that. I was dumbfounded that they had happy hour specials on a Saturday. Works great for me. They have a number of taps available plus they have a separate bar area upstairs that contains a bunch of belgians stuff plus a nice outdoor area for the summer. I prefer their heavier beers to the lighter ones but they make the most amazing root beer as well that tastes even better out of the bottle. They also sell beer to go. I’ve certainly had better beer then Appalachian but as a restaurant experience, this one is hard to beat.

Although ABC falls into that average American brewpub category, they manage to put on some pretty respectable beers and the food is outstanding, so they earn better kudos.

Appalachian now operates 4 brew pubs in the Harrisburg area. This one is in downtown Harrisburg, just outside a real shady area of town, if there is a non-shady side of this wretched place. At any rate, the brewery is housed inside a historic building and is very open, though somewhat noisy. The service was good, but I wish I were offered the ability to choose the beers in my sampler instead of getting the first 8 on the board. There were at least 15 house beers on draft!! The prices were good and no food was consumed here, so that you will have to figure out yourself.

A grand old brewery outside of the downtown core. One side is the brewery with their big fermentation tanks, the other, the restaurant-pub, with a turn of the century look. Good pub grub is available, good service. A good sampler tray is available (8 X 4 on for 10$). Beers are OK. They did have a series of Belgian triple (the Bastone set) 3 for 12$. Take out beer available.

Although the beers are not outstanding, I like this place. Best is the onion/cheese soup. Large variety of home brewed beers, nice atmosphere.

After a stop at Tröegs we came to ABC for lunch and some more beers. The long bar and soft lighting combined with the natural light coming in from the large windows made the place quite inviting. Our heavily tattooed, super friendly, very knowledgeable server made a couple of great food recommendations and we got food orders in while working through the immense samplers. I did go with two samplers to try all sixteen of the beers they had on, and I was quite grateful my wife was playing DD since the sample sizes were enormous, and the bulk of the beers were worth drinking. Didn’t get a chance to check out the abbey bar, but this was certainly a place I’d like to have nearby, and would certainly stop at again.

Nice place in the ghetto. Industrial brick feel, big and open on the inside. The service was excellent, but it was pretty dead when we were there. The selection was pretty good, lots of different beers on tap and a great menu. We had some German specials since they were celebrating Oktoberfest. Prices were pretty good too. Overall a nice place.

Was here all day for the 10th annual beer festival. Nice layout, great staff, and the food was very good. Many of their beers are ’meh’, but they’re not horrible. I will most likely go here again on a non-festival day to check it out.
