Always been here during non-peak hours. Food is solid, and beers are very good, not great. Service is an issue. In my latest trip our server was very slow. Reading other reviews mention the same thing compelled me to write the review.

A nice looking spot in Collegeville. Big bar, plenty of seating, quality looking furniture. The service was OK. Not overly attentive and no one was at the bar for five minutes when we arrived. Decent selection of their brews, maybe 12-15 taps. Their beer is just OK across the board but solid. Food was solid. We had a flatbread and the bruscetta. Both were solid.

I ordered the sampler (7 flagship beers, and one seasonal) and a burger. The burger was really great, the beer was okay. The prices were a tad high, but pretty standard for the area, and certainly for comparable brewpubs around. It was a ghost town on Thursday over lunch... that canít be a great sign.

It doesnít seem like thereís a whole lot of difference in ABC than the last brewpub that was in this space years ago (although, for the life of me, I canít remember the name of it). The seating arrangements are the same, the bar is in the same place, etc. The food menu is basically the same as it is in Harrisburg, but is quite good. The pizza was great, the wings were quite good, and the pulled pork was delicious. Also the same as their Harrisburg location is their beer. This location offers the same exact beer menu. I was able to try a couple of new offerings on my first visit, although neither were all that great. In fact, the Kolsch should be avoided at all costs. The Maibock was fairly decent. I would stick with the usual year-round ABC staples like Hoppy Trails, the Stout, the Pale Ale and the Wheat. The service was extremely slow. I was very tempted to order another beer as soon as the fresh one was served to me. The food service was on time and very attentive, though. On ABCís defense, it was a Friday night and the place was very busy. Hopefully the service issues will get resolved, because I am definitely planning on returning. I also hope that I can edit this review and increase the score a bit! Hereís rooting for you, ABC Collegeville!

Large place with big wooden beams overhead and a nice selection of flags. Plenty of room to move here. The meat loaf and pork medallions were excellent, the beers were your standard average fare from ABC. Service started good, but declined late, and the menu was not at all clear about which sodas were included with the kids meals. The root beer was included, but the birch beer wasnít. One drink was free, but refills werenít. They asked if my son wanted his 2nd kids meal without fries, then charged us for fries. When the manager eventually arrived, he had an attitude the size of Manhattan. Eventually all was set right in the world, but not before a struggle. I bought the $60 dollar mug club package, but if I donít get my moneyís worth, Iíll start an anti-ABC campaign that would make George S. Patton himself jealous.
Rerate 13-Jul-2011. Service has gotten better here, the food is outstanding, the selection of beers has typically been 10 strong, and I did get a beer mail from an ABC manager offering to speak with me about any issues, so thatís great customer service there. On the negative side, they really need to get the air conditioning fixed in this place. It can often feel like 80 degrees here.

Just opened for the second night. Nice atmosphere. Meat loaf is outstanding. Food was very good at a decent price. Sampler was equally a good value. Beers were good. Nothing overly impressive. Waitress was a bit off, but service was excellent.
