stopped in recently after checking out lititz not far from here..plenty of parking located off a very busy street but visible from road...really an interesting place with a combination small bottle shop, gourmet meat/cheese counter and pub..pub is the largest of 3 with the bar center stage..nice electronic beer board clearly show what is on tap..24 taps of some high quality stuff..didnít have a kids menu which is kind of crappy if bringing family but they were willing to make simple mac cheese/simple burger..cheese board was well put together and it is nice you can pick 3 or 5 options..dinner special was very tasty and I highly enjoyed the mussel dish prepared in an unusual but flavorful vanilla sauce..fries were very tasty..food was well executed and I was pretty happy to have jolly pumpkin oro calabaza and a wipeout ipa with my meal..not cheap but hey good food is going to cost you..highly recommend this place, had some really interesting cheeses and meats to go...cabot clothbound cheddar! bottle shop is pretty small, no growler fills and didnít really have anything that exciting..the pub pricing on the beer was solid..everything between 5-7 bucks, most 6 range...

You enter into a modern bar with lots of sports TVs. On your left is a small deli counter with a handful of groceries. Past the rest rooms is a bottle shop. The bottle shop was locked up on a Sunday afternoon with a sign that said "as staff" - Iím not sure if this is always the case, or just on Sundays. The beer list was really interesting, with things I hadnít seen elsewhere. Didnít try the food, but it looked OK. Worth a stop or a linger for sure.

I really liked this place overall. Their stock errs strongly towards quality, rather than wide selection. As someone from MD, I was also thrilled that they had a decent selection of Lost Abbey beer, along with Evil Twin.

Located on an off street this place actually three in one; small gourmet market, small bottle shop, and restaurant/bar area. The look is kind of postmodern rustic with lots of exposed brick and high beamed ceilings to go along with all the steel and glass which gives it a vaguely hipsterish vibe, whoever they are. Tap list was fairly adventerous with National and international craft selections though I would have liked to have seen some more locals. A similar philosophy prevailed in the bottle shop. The staff was cordial without being exceedingly friendly but part of that was the Sunday afternoon in Winter vibe. Prices are a bit on the high side nationally but PA has never been known for its cheap beer prices. If I was trying to introduce a date to craft beer and I lived in Lancaster I would probably take them here.

A rather large building with an outside patio out front and tons of parking around back. Inside is an awesome combo of provisions shop, bottle shop and bar bar. Lots of people milling around drinking and buying beers even in the middle of the afternoon. No TVís other than the tap lists, a plus when it comes to this place. Service was some of the best around. They are all at least knowledgeable, some way more than others but still. I didnít have to wait more than a min or so for another beer. Quality is super high all around. They didnít spare a dime when it came to this place. From the beer to the food to the space itself, Itís high end all around yet it isnít crazy expensive.
As far as selection goes, I am gonna base it on the bottle shop as well as the bar. The bars tap selection is pretty good but nothing that canít be found elsewhere in the area. The bottle shop has a large, reasonably priced selection in what is best described as a storage closet. It works for what it is but its a little cold feeling. I kind of want to rate the food an incomplete. I stopped in during their "in between menu" time so I could only choose from a few things. I got the soft pretzel with the cream cheese mustard and it was awesome. I look forward to trying some of the other offering on the dinner menu.
Overall an awesome addition to the Lancaster beer scene. The provisions shop has some awesome meets and cheeses, the bottle shop has some really nice bottles and the bar/kitchen is worth the stop alone. This place could easily become the best beer spot in Lancaster, brewery or not.
