Visited for a bottle release. Well, actually, I thought Iíd stop in briefly the night before the release, just for a peek. Ended up staying until closing time. Amazing bluegrass band, fund patrons really into the beer and music. Terrific staff, quick, efficient and friendly despite gyrating bodies everywhere. The beers ranged from OK to amazing. Food was above and beyond. Oh, and the bottle release was well organized, with plenty of bottles to make everyone happy, tasty beers on tap, and plenty of the same good food. It turned out we really didnít need to line up early for the release, so if I come for another Iíd still hang out til 2 the night before, but then Iíd sleep in. A must-stop, and worth going well out of your way to visit.

A nice small-to-mid-sized town brewery, full of locals, staffed by locals. They had 11 beers on tap when I visited, including the Old Toad Barley Wine, the 10th Anniv. Red^2, two saisons and others. Overall the quality of the beer was very high, with the Edgar IPA being especially well crafted. Bartenders were OK, prices were OK (was there on their 10th Anniv. so pints were only $2.50), and the Jamacian Jerk Chicken Wings were tasty, even if their sauce wasnít close to real jerk sauce.
Probably the most overrated place in the area. The food is nothing special and Iíve never had a beer that blew my socks off. Iíve been back 3-4 times since Iíve posted this review. Iíve had some a couple of tasty beers, especially the coffee saison, but itís not a place I immediately want to go to. Update 6-22-13 Iíve had a bit of a rethink about this place. If its so mediocre and overrrated why do I keep going back? They have maybe 10 taps but other the the Billtown Blonde and the Edgar IPA everything is always changing. Thatís pretty ambitious Iíd say and worth keeping an eye on.
Downtown brewery, I did not see any parking lots nearby so that could be tricky. Pretty crowded on a Friday afternoon. Did not try the food. Staff was friendly and helpful. Flight of seven beers, a couple fell flat but otherwise unique and good. Tin roof, brewery behind the bar, lots of posters for past Mardi Gras kings and queens. Prices decent. Overall a decent stop.
Visited a couple of times during the Grrrz release. The brewpubís a simple wood-paneled room with plenty of space for food service. Williamsport was overrun by beer bros that weekend, and the bar frankly struggled at times to handle the crowd. The 10ish beers on tap offered a good range of styles. While the sours predictably got most of the crowdís attention, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of Bullfrogís pils and hoppy stuff. The food menu was worryingly expansive, but everything our group tried was pretty awesome. Portions were huge, too.
A note on the Grrrz release itself: Bullfrog struggled to fill orders at a rate faster than one customer per minute, so the substantial line moved very, very slowly. Expect to wait a long time. Bring a folding chair and pray for good weather.
A Great American Brewpub. You drink and eat right where the vats are. The owner serves you, lives upstairs, and plays backgammon. Lots of regulars eat there at least once a week. Beer is exceptional in quality and selection. Vast majority, reviews to follow, are brewed by a new brewmaster who follows more closely a set recipe. Good selection of music though not on my night there. Just good friendly small town people to enjoy beer session. Smokey. Very reasonable prices. A great place on the way to somewhere, worth stepping off the highway even when there is no Little League World Series.
Our first stop and it was a little disappointing on both the beer and food front. The building itself is pretty cool - a restored historic pub with lots of polished brass up front and a more private dining area toward the back. There was a band playing some jazz when we arrived, although it was a little bit loud for my tastes, the music was quite good. Our server was friendly enough, but didnít seem quite able to fill two sampler orders because they had run out of taster glasses - which doesnít seem like a normal thing in a brewpub. The food was pretty awful - a really dried out burger, some flavourless onion rings and just a generally lacklustre approach to food. The beers themselves were good (actually the IPA was terrific) but the operation could have been run a little more smoothly on this particular day.
2012-08-17. Nice location in a small town, visible tanks, decently long bar. High ceilings and assorted chairs. It has an eclectic feel about it. Food was pretty solid. Not sure why my request to have a different dressing on my wrap meant it had to be on the side, but that made it a bit awkward to apply. Beers varied from okay to pretty solid, the Edgar IPA being a standout. They had a decent selection of their own beers on and a couple of guest taps. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area. There is a Wegmanís around the corner as well with bottles for sale.
This is a rather big pub but it doesnít feel it because the place is long but not very wide. Brewing equipment is sitting right behind the large bar. Friendly and relaxed service. I visited the pub on a week-day after-noon so it was obviously very quiet but I cannot imagine this place turning into a party place at night. Food menu is standard greasy pub food but the food quality was above average. When I was there they had 11 taps (including the amazing Kegs Gone Wild Busted Lawnmower Saison). I tried many beers, 1 bad one, 1 so-so, 1 was amazing and everything else was very good. They also seem to go off the beaten path a lot with their beers so you can expect 4 or 5 beers outside the standard brewpub line-up (Blonde/Amber/Stout/etc). Well worth the detour.
