Many of the other places in the area were closed on easter Sunday, but this place was open til 2. Small bottle shop inside the front entrance had some interesting choices,including Cascade, Lost Abbey and a new Trois Dames. The bar itself is a large U-shaped bar that fills virtually the while space, except for one pool table and a handful of restaurant tables. Draft choices were solid and included a lambic, a berliner and a new Struise, although it tasted like the Struise had been on for a while. Service was efficient, quick and friendly. Snacks were decent, but they also had a full dinner menu. Lots of TVs for sports and movies. Well worth the trip.
Interesting/shoddy location in the middle of a bunch of shops. Thereís a small bottle shop in the front with a few interesting bottles for purchase. The bar is large so plenty of seating. Again, some interesting beers on tap including two sours. Food was hearty - had the spicy chilli wings which were pretty good. Bartenders were fine. Definitely a locals pub but with a good enough selection to entice the beer geek. Worth a stop when passing through the area.
People kept telling me to check this place out, especially since it is only 5 minutes away from me. As soon as you walk in there are about 4 or 5 coolers full of singles (big deal if you live in PA!). Nicer selection. I also hear that they rotate frequently - there might be something different a week later. They also fill Growlers and have a beer brewed by legacy specifically for them. Worth a stop if live around here.
This is located at the end of strip center and is easy to miss. As soon as you walk in, the carry out coolers are to the right. Selection was not as big as I was expecting, but they had some nice beer. Lost Abbey, Dieu De Cel, DFH, and regional beers. Inside is a dimly lit bar area with booth seating for dining. Tap selection was just ok when compared to the competition, and was a bit too loud and smoky for me to stay long.
When I lived in Lansdale this place pretty much got me into craft beer. you can mix and match 6 packs to go, they have great food, and occasional tastings. its a sports bar so worth walking to to catch games if you want something more than yeungling.

Didnít have the food yet, so I will add food info at that time. Found this place by accident, and the bottle selection was outstanding, and the prices were great. A lot of stuff exists here that you wonít see very many other places. Great service, and a quaint bar atmosphere inside. Update 17-Apr-2012. Had the food multiple times, and it is excellent across the board. Service has been great, too. This is a top notch establishment.
Located in a strip mall next to a CVS and a PA State store. Blue Dog has a large beer list and a small bottle shop included. Draft list constantly changing with many seasonal and one off beers in the rotation. I go for a business lunch, food is decent pub fare. Enough HDTVís in the place that one would consider it a Sports Bar. Waitress service is good, but Iíll agree with other raters the help are not too beer savvy. That shouldít bother the beer geeks.
I try to stop in here once a week since itís just around the corner from my work. With the PA case laws this place is great since they have a number of coolers of just singles (American Craft, Belgian and other various imports). The food is pretty good too, your basic pub foods (burgers, wings, and various other sandwiches). They have some meals on the menu too.
