Highly recommended for beer lovers, not so much for beer snobs or those searching for a "scene". Come in the summer if you can. Indoor/outdoor vibe with tables filled and lots of activity on the weekends, with occasional bands. draws all ages. drawback is no food, so you depend on the quality of the food trucks that evening. beer selection is limited to 7 or 8 beers, but is OUTSTANDING quality. as others have mentioned, you will not find better prices in all of the US. Bartenders are very unassuming, attentive, friendly, and love their jobs. no attitudes here. i drive 25 minutes each way to fill growlers and stock up on freshly canned beers. st boniface has a canning device from oscar blues in colorado where they can fill a 32 oz can of any beer you want on the spot. awesome!

Stopped by on a thurs afternoon. Unfortunately it was pretty quiet. Pretty cool exposed beam/industrial vibe. Only about 5-6 beers on tap. Beer was good though and I will always prefer quality over quantity. Prices were stupidly awesome. $10 Growler fills,$6 bombers,
$4 drafts? Fantastic. Would definitely recommend.

We actually went to Lancaster to hit the spring house tap room but that place was jambed and we coudlnít get in on labor day weekend. So, our hotel was in ephrata and this placae was close by so we hit it up instead. This was one of the most unique beer expereinces that I can remember. When we arrived, seemed like any other brewpub from the outside. However, on the way into the place there was this food caterer outside with a trailer cooking food in the trailer. Then we walked into the place and it was a simple stripped down multi port garage with tables and a makeshift bar, crudely constructed. Lots of people in there on a saturday afternoon. This place had a few kids running around and it was loud inside. It reminded me of the festivities you would see at a wedding reception in your local volunteer fire department. I was glad because we called earlier and they said it would be OK for my 3 year old grand daughter to come with us, it was family oriented we were told. For food, you ordered outside at the food trailer and inside you order beers and soda at the bar. Two sepratte bills. Me and 4 ohters had the prime rib for $10, not too bad. We shoved together 2 tables for the 7 of us. No body blinked an eye, it was a one for all and all for one kind of atmosphere. After a while, about 20 people left and the place settled downa little to a crude beer drinken establishemnt. Beers were good and they had 7 on tap. Good overall beer drinken experience for me and the other guys but Iím not too sure what the girls in our group thot. Growlers could be filled for $8, what a deal! If your in the area and its open, stop by to knock some back, youíll find it unique as well.

A step up from their old location, a start at decor, same great staff and patrons, and of course, really good beer. Samples and growler fills, and now glasses and food, too! Canít wait to see what they do next!

Great service, knowledgeable staff, magnificent beers. Selection can be limited and atmosphere is not really terrific. Overall though great beer, very friendly folks, and even better value. Libation is one of the best double IPAís I have ever had and Hegemony is a hard to beat stout.
