Nice place, lots of bottles in a nice setup, didnít get to eat there, but looks like they have deli sandwiches, about 6 beers on tap that were all pretty exotic, prices not the greatest, but Iíve seen worse.
Great food. The best wings anywhere. The draft beer offerings change on a rather frequent schedule. Cisco and his employees are top notch. Lots of bottle beer to choose from but my only complaint is, it doesnít change much and they seldom have the hard to find beers which I am always seeking.
This place is an excellent addition to the local beer scene. The have an excellent selection of bottles, some of which are not easy to come by, and six rotating craft taps. Cisco, the owner, was very friendly and knowledgeable about craft beer. Food is standard deli fare though it is an interesting take on the bottle shop/restaurant combo. Most other places serve only greasy subs while all the ingredients used here are fresh and at least semi-healthy. The fries were very good. Also worth noting is that it is very clean compared to other bottle shops in the area. The only downside is that the prices are relatively high.
Sweet some mix 6 packs. Right next to the case only joint score for me. Only had a few minutes to look around but the guy behind the counter was very helpful. He even hooked me up with some club only bottles since I was visiting from across the country.

I thought this was a pretty awesome place, I think that 60+ bottles is a little conservative, I think its probably more like 100+. I saw a good selection of fairly rare beers for this area, just a ton of stuff that you donít normally find in PA. Expect to pay bottle shop prices here, which is a downside, but I think the selection makes up for it. I did not try the food, but it looks like standard deli fare, nothing special. The place is clean and smoke free and they have a nice HD TV in there. I think I saw six taps as well, with some interesting things on tap. Pretty sweet...Iíll be back definately.
Update: The food is excellent but a little pricey. The guy that runs the shop Cisco, is an awesome dude that really knows his beer. The only downside to brass rail is that it is expensive for everything, but the quality is excellent.
What a great little place. Sisco is a good guy and the selection of beer is very good, even tho most of it is a tad over priced...You can always buy a mix 6 pack and get the 25% discount but sometimes you donít want that much and the prices get to you. They have 6 taps of high quality beer flowing at all times with the prices for a Sample, Pint, and Growler clearly marked on the wall board. The food is pretty good but some of my sandwiches have been a bit lackluster. Service is also very good and very knowledgeable. Overall it is one of the better bottle shops in the area. Worth a visit for sure.
Great for a mix and match 6 pack if you feel like rating some brews!

I was taking the scenic route from Harrisburg to Philadelphia and needed to grab some lunch so I made sure to time my arrival to the Brass Rail with lunchtime. Small little shop located in the same building as their distributor shop. a few coolers line the back wall and the left of the shop is lined with warm shelving for singles. A decent selection of Belgians, German, British beers as well as a nice selection of American brews. Six taps that you can get as samples, pints, or growlers. They have some odd pricing listed on the growlers (a buck extra for "guest" growlers, a buck more for non-translucent growlers) but the lady that rang up my guest growler didnít charge me that buck so Iím not sure why they list those things. Anyhow, I snagged a mixed six pack (25% off when you get a mixed six- solid deal) and a growler of Springhouse Big Gruesome. Very friendly ladies working behind the counter. I got there shortly after 11 on a Thursday and it was rather empty, but by the time I left it was really filling up with the lunch crowd. My sandwich was sub-par. I would not eat here again. Had the Chicken Parm and nothing about it was really worth getting again. I would recommend this place as a place to get a sixer or a growler, though. Also a nice place to have a quiet pint with a buddy or two. Overall a real nice place.
Another find for beer and a real great selection at that! Some great craft beer on tap as well. Food was good, friendly service, clean and quiet. Many import and craft beers to chose from however prices are high. Nice to have another place to find some extraordinary stuff.
