Had their Hop Hog at KClingers the day before so we decided to drive over to Lancaster, take the kids to the childrenís museum (a great idea to get the wifeís buy-in). Anway, the brewery is in the same space as the restaurant/bar. A very olf factory. Plenty of seating and about 6 beers on tap. Unfrotunately, they didnít have anything on cask. Surprisingly, the Hop Hog didnít taste as hoppy as the pints we had the day before. I was able to have the wonderful Milk Stout. Iíve got to get myself one of those "Got Milk Stout" shirts. Saw one of these in downtown Harrisburg the previous Friday and about pissed myself.

Food is average bar fare. Nothing special. The beers were drinkable, but nothing growler worthy. Well, maybe the Milk Stout. However, if I am in town again, I would stop by for another round.

Ate here my first night in Lancaster. This place reminded me of the Pump Station in Albany somewhat in appearance. It has that old factory look to it. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was below average. The beer selection was so-so, but the four grain went down well enough.

This is my local bar so I might be a little baised. The food is typical bar food, but the white bean nachos on Thurs for $5 are great, so are the cheap growler fills on Wed. It gets crowded on the weekends, but during the week it is not bad.

Stopped in for lunch while we were out in Lancaster County to take our son to Dutch Wonderland. I was really impressed. Had a cool layout and feel. A great addition to the Lancaster area. We just had burgers and sandwiches, but they were really well done and they have a sampler which includes whichever beers they have on tap. Basically it comes out to be about a buck a sample. They had 7 beers on tap the day I was there. Two of which I had previously rated. But overall it made for a nice tasting. If you are in the Lancaster PA area. Stop in for a nice meal and to rate some brews. They had a small lot which had plenty of spots open mid afternoon on a Saturday. Sometimes parking can be in a pain in Lancaster City, so the lot was a nice addition.

This place was a bit dark and dreary, but the service was excellent, food was very good, and the beer sampler was a great idea. Overall the beer here leaves a bit to be desired, but they have some brews worth trying, and this is certainly a place Iíd recommend checking out.

A pretty nice experience. First good thing was the 12 beer sample. Atmospher was good. Restaurant was almost built above part of the brewery and you could see the vats and holding tanks beside you while you ate. I wasnít too pleased with the food. Heard they had good pizza so i got the white pizza and was disappointed. If i eat there again iíll have to re-rate. Nice lighting kinda dark. people were fairly friendly despite waitress gave me wrong directions to a place. Milk stout is worth stopping for. Had another bad experience there, so far lbc is batting a 1.00 for screwing food orders up. at least the milk stout is there to redeem them, so in conclustion donít get any food, just buy their milk stout, and maybe some hop hop. (the other beers arenít all that great)

My mom wanted to visit Amish country; I wanted to drink; this fits the bill on both counts, being in the heart of the plain peopleís territory. Lancaster itself is not terribly exciting as a city, sorta rundown and post-industrial, but this is a really terrific find in a typical old converted factory a half-mile or so from downtown. Food is just a bit on the upscale side for a brewpub, and quite solid if a bit too amply portioned for most normal humans. Iím really a fan of the beer, especially the milk stout and the Gold Star Pils, one of the best pils Iíve had, period. Prices are good, samplers reasonable, and the ambiance is cool...most of the dining area looks down on the brewery a level below, kinda neat. Worth going a bit out of your way for.

Stopped here on our way through to NYC from Pgh. Got the sampler and found the Amish four grain pale ale and Strawberry Wheat to be quite good. The Milk Stout was superb as expected. Loved the dark feel of the place - reminded me of an old country pub. Food was decent - I think I had chicken sandwich and fries.

Has an old barn feel to it, but decent ambience. Great beers, good service, and the food selection was nice. The food and beers tasted great. I like this place.
