Great location. It’s in the lobby of the train station. Paradoxically a Brewpub in a train station looks more like a train station than I’m sure the train station ever did. The beers on the other hand were aggressively mediocre and the service even worse. Luckilly they had a selection of PA craft beer in bottles. The service left a lot to be desired and $9 for a six beer sampler where the beers were only 2/3 full is practically criminal.

Interesting place. When you first walk in you are immediately entranced by the old train station architecture, but then you find a brewpub awkwardly situated within. Two different dining rooms, a neat train arrival board of beers, two different bars, bathrooms off in some far corner. Two entrances, too many televisions. Food was okay. Staff was not particularly enjoyable. Beers were uncomfortable. An interesting stop in Erie, but nothing world-class.

Went here when it first opened back in 2007ish. Building is beautiful and the food was good but at the time they had very few beers. Will have to re-rate and keeping this as a placeholder to remind me.

Place not hard to find, nice ambiance in what i assume is an old train station, service was okay, as it wasnt that busy, portions seemed somewhat small. The beer was okay, nice that there is a selection of other craft brewerys and a some seasonals as well. Worth checking out at least once if in the area

The decor and design of this converted train station made the trip worth a stop. Really impressive! The beers were just okay and food was also just okay but it felt like I was stepping back in time.

Big place with not a whole lotta parking on a friday night. 20 minute wait for seating even tho lots of empty tables were available. Greeter was initially a little rude. Bottle shop inside had quite a few bombers but very few singles to make a six pack from. Quite loud. Layout of place is nice; converted train station. Got a 4 0z sample of all 8 house beers for $10. Fish was really good and coleslaw was exceptionally good. Fries were a little soggy but went well with coleslaw. Wife had portabella mushroom wrap and thought it was good. Even tho we asked to be seated away from the band, they put us there anyhow. Was expecting really loud music but it was tolerable. Overall good beer expereince. Waitress at table was much nicer that greeter. Been wanting to try this place for a while now its done!

We had stopped here on our last stop of Tour de NWPA.
A: The place is a refurbished train station, the bar area is small but they have plenty of tables throughout the station.
Q: The beer quality was decent, of our group, no one complained about the in house beers. I had the peanut butter porter and the belgian and they were both decent.
S: Out waitress was very attentive and made some good recommednations, friendly.
S: They offered 9 in house beers that were a wide array of beer, plus another 30 bottles from many PA brewers.
F: Decent, everyone in our group was satisified with their selections.
V: For 6 of us drinkning and eating, the tab was under $25 per person, and that included 2/3 drinks per person.
Overall, Union Station is a nice stop while in Erie, decent beer, decent food, decent place.

Pretty good house beers, small but solid PA-centric bottle collection, great bar food. Extremely wallet friendly, especially to this Baltimore/DC native. 100% worth a stop for dinner if you find yourself in Erie.

This is an Old train station close many years ago. The city of Erie, PA revitalized the old building and turned it into a brewery. Almost everything was restored to original condition. I wish more towns in America would keep old buildings alive with restoration. Really great décor! I eat a smothered chicken sandwich and it was normal pub fare. Our bartender was nice enough and did chat with us a bit.
The beers are real average and have a tie with Lavery Brewing Company. They also had a decent bottle list focusing on Pennsylvania beers. If you are ever in the area, stop in and take the tour.

This was a great place. The station was an excellent venue for a brewpub. Our waitress knew her beers and gave me a tour of the beer garden which will ope later in May. The food was excellent. I had mussels and an excellent chicken sandwich. We were able to speak to the brewmaster. Another brewery in town uses their equipment over the weekend. My disappointment was they were out of the three beers I wanted to taste.
