Very nice place. The interior is cozy, nicely decorated, but a bit small, with a 12 seater bar and roughly 50 person seated dining capacity. The food is out of this world. The burgers melt in your mouth, the homemade seasoned fries are the best I have ever had, the pierogies are astounding, and the soups are great. Everything my wife and I have eaten here has been spot on. The tap selection is 16 strong, and includes a lot of great local stuff, relative rarities like Pliny the Elder, and a smattering of Belgian and dark beers. There are always two or three solid IPAs, 2 or 3 solid Belgians, and 2 or 3 solid stouts on. Service has ranged from initially slow to much better lately. Value is above average, and the takeout beer coolers are stocked with a great deal of awesome stuff. Gary (the owner) has been around the beer business for most of his life, and it shows in this place. I highly recommend Craft Ale House to anyone. You will not be disappointed.

I love this place! I stopped in 5 or 6 times for a quick pint or 2 on my way home from work . I find that if I exit 422 at Sanatoga and go about a mile and a half out of my way,it’s right on the way home!The place is very cozy and attractive. A great beer selection that includes a fair share of local breweries,but not what one might expect from them. Victory , you get St. Victorious and Old Horizontal,not Hop Devil. Sly Fox’s Oddessy and PBC’s Kenzinger just to name a few. The place has a nice T.V. behind the bar,but really I think the place is going for more of a friendly conversation between customers than getting blasted with 20 televisions. The times iI was there people were talking beer amongst each other wether they were friends before or not.The Craft Ale House is a more than welcome addition to the area and really is a destination spot for lovers of quality beers and food. I did have the Buttermilk Tendres and fries and they were awesome. I may have to become a regular.

A welcome addition to the Eastern PA beer scene! I struggled between entering this as a bar or restaurant and went with a bar since the Craft Beer is the focus at this place. Went on a Saturday for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. They really did a great job with the inside of this place. Dark woods, fireplace, sofas to chill on, maybe 10 or more tables to seat people who want a meal. Bar is medium size with a decent size TV and 15 beers on tap (one was on nitro). They have two large coolers filled with beer to go. Prices on beer and food seemed reasonable. $4 to $5 for most beers on tap. The higher ABV/rare beers they served in 10 oz glasses but in that same $4 to $5 price range. They had Pliny the Elder on, which has become more common in Easter PA over the past few months but was still nice to see. The staff was very friendly. The bartender is a homebrewer and seemed to know his stuff. Everyone else at the bar was talking either homebrewing or craft beer. Someone mentioned they o
