Nice barn-like interior with a decent size bar off to the side. Fourteen of their beers on tap, plus bottles of Belgian stuff. Tasters were 8 five ounce pours for a sawbuck, so generous portions at a decent enough price. Food was OK pub fare, and service was just OK.
Nice brewery located just to the west of town. Large bar area that resembles a loft or high-ceilinged cabin. Good, varied selection of taps with the barley wine, hefeweizen, ipa and anniversary maibock available. 9 taps total, with the pale ale on cask. Had some fries that had way too much seasoning, almost couldn’t stomach them, but overall it’s a nice place to drink and I’ll stop in again next time I’m through the area.
A nice farm/barn-like brewpub just outside the Gettysburg National Military Park. The interior has a German feel to it. Plenty of house beers on tap with a fair number of seasonals. The blackened pork medallions were quite good along with their Belgian seasonals. The service was fair and pleasant.
The interior looked like where the kids in Caddyshack hung out after they got kicked out of the pool. I don’t normally comment on the bathrooms but this one was poorly lit and had the toilet paper dispenser was several pieces on the counter next to the sink. The beers I tried were very good but in fairness the best thing I had was the root beer. It was fantastic. I wanted to try one of their seasonal belgian style beers but you had to order a 3 beer sampler to try one and the glasses were 8 ounces each which seemed a bit excessive. I can’t say I was blown away by this place.
July 2007 - Situated dang near on the edge of historic battlefields, this is a nice enough little American brewpub. ABC makes always-good beers and the food was good enough that I cleaned my plate, even if wasn’t haute cuisine. And for Pennsylvania, one of the best things was the ability to buy mix and match bottles of the tasty brews. Worth a stop if you’re in town.
Stopped by here on the way back home from a trip in the Lancaster area. The place looks small at first but if you poke around it is actually quite large. I’m not sure the parking lot could handle a full restaurant. Fairly laid back and casual. The food was fairly average but decently priced. Service was helpful. I tried nine beers and while there were a couple of misses (sadly one on my favorite stylse) overall they were quite good. Prices were decent overall. Beer is available to go in six and twelve packs, as well as growlers. Overall a nice stop that exceeded my expectations.
Pleasant brewpub on the edge of town, close to the battlefield. We must have driven past it earlier on the battlefield tour but, strangely, didn’t notice it. Not as cavernous as some, with a quite homely feel. Quiet on a Tuesday night (everwhere in town was) and pretty much shutting up shop at 9pm. Fair amount of growler business. Solid, if mainly unspectacular, line up of 12 beers on tap. I think some of the regular beers come from Harrisburg, whilst the short run beers, including Obbies Grand Cru, are made here. Decent brewpub food, although the crabcakes weren’t the best I’ve had. Apparently you can tour the brewery every day at 5pm, although we weren’t there at that time. I’d happily go back if in the area.
A nice restaurant/brewpub tucked away in the small town of Gettysburg. I stopped here on a Thursday evening after a long day of driving. The restaurant was fairly full but we found seats at the bar. There were quite a number of beers on tap (it looked like ~6 year-rounders + 6 "seasonals"/rotators) so there certainly is plenty to choose from. The beers we tried were pretty good - no real stand-outs but most decent. As far as food, I just got the cheddar ale soup and it was pretty good (wanted to order the chocolate peanut butter pie for dessert, but they were out :-( ). Overall a nice, cozy place to enjoy a pint. Definitely worth a stop, especially given the large selection of beers on tap.
Great location - if you know where to look for it. Outskirts of town, right on the battlefield route between sights 3 and 4. Unfortunately we didn’t know, and didn’t notice it when we drove past around lunchtime. So a good tip is to start the battle field tour (audio guide) late morning and hit the brewpub for lunch. We walked here from the centre of town and that was a bit of a hike. The interior is quite cozy with wooden walls, a wooden bar etc. but I did get annoyed with the constant draft from the fan and very low temperature the AC was set at. The food was delicious - I had a pork chop with blue cheese and mushrooms. The staff is friendly. But be aware of the opening times Sunday to Thursday they shut at 9 PM. 11 beers on draft, ranging from poor to really good quality.
Located in the historic town of Gettysburg, a nice place to stop after checking out all the battlefields. We just stopped for some beer and sat at the bar. Service was good, but nothing special. The selection was very good, we mainly stopped to try some Broad St Barley Wine since they had ran out in Harrisburg. This was a nice place.
