Stop number two on our Bloomsburg adventure. My first time to Turkey Hill.
Awesome looking building from the outside, parking lot was packed. I hear the upstairs is an awesome restaurant but for this visit we stuck with the pub. Brewing area is right inside the door, appears to be just an industrial home brew kit. We got seated at the largest table in the place and sat down to take in our surroundings. Lots of old wood and stones all over the place, two person band playing in the corner, a few TVís behind the bar. My seat was a little uncomfortable as it was essentially a board with no cushion. Quality was pretty good, lots of cool things hanging on the wall, food was top notch, and my beers all came in the correct glasses.
Service was a little hit or miss. Our server was working most of the room so it took awhile to get our drink order in, and ever longer for it to arrive. Once we placed our food order the service got a lot quicker thanks to the other servers picking up the slack. I got the Black and Blue burger and it was cooked perfectly and tasted great. I also got to try some of the buffalo dip and NY pretzels and both were awesome.
Selection was pretty good as well. They had 10-11 beers on, I tried the Helles and the Oatmeal stout and both were pretty good, but nothing earth shattering. I also tried a bit of the Grapefruit IPA and like the others it was good but not great. Overall this place is definitely worth the stop, for the food alone, but donít expect it to blow you out of the water.

Lovely building. Interior is wood. Service was good, but waitress not that knowledgeable about beer. My grass fed burger was excellent. They had a decent number of styles on tap, and a cask ale (bonus for that).

This is a newer brewery opened in the Turkey Hill Inn. It is fairly open inside with a large bar and ample seating. Something louder was going on upstairs, as we could hear stomping, laughing, and other reverie. The service was very friendly and kept us full of peanuts - had you asked us if we wanted any, we would have said "no", but then we just kept munching on them. The beers were solid. Our 6th stop along I-80 in central PA.

This brewpub is part of an upscale restaurant (and inn I believe) in Bloomsburg. The bar itself is pretty small with not a whole lot of seating. We asked to sit outside and we first told to check with the hostess as there is supposed to be a server assigned to the outdoor seating area. So we did and found a seat outside (there were only a few tables, all but 1 unoccupied). There actually was no outdoor server and we had to go back in to order beers. Seems like the communication between staff could improve. The beers themselves were ok, nothing to write home about. They attempted an interesting style (saison), but it was mediocre. We didnít try any of the food; I suppose that might have added to the experience, but for beer alone, not a place I would seek out (I wish Iíd spent more time at Marleyís!)

A fantastic addition to the central PA brewpub scene. I was surprised at how good their beers were this soon after opening. I didnít have one I thought was a dud. I especially enjoyed the Epiphany Pale Ale. The brewpub is located in what looks like a former barn. The bar area is in the basement and theirs also a restaurant area on the second floor. They had 7 things on tap and three things, including a pretty fair-to-middliní hefe, that they just added. They had a really nice crowd for a mid-week excursion. Luckily thereís a lot of parking there. Since the owners already have a fine dining establishment on the property, and a great local reputation, I expected the food to be good and it was and I also thought everything was very reasonably priced. Itís going to be fun watching this place grow.

A beautifully designed pub arose from the ruins of the old barn, The food was top notch, although maybe a little pricey, and the beer was surprisingly good. We sampled the IPA (really nice), the Pale Ale (clean and very drinkable) and the Porter (nice). The staff was friendly and helpful. We will definately be back.
