Visited for a bottle release. Well, actually, I thought I’d 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 didn’t need to line up early for the release, so if I come for another I’d still hang out til 2 the night before, but then I’d sleep in. A must-stop, and worth going well out of your way to visit.
my wife’s family is from buffalo, so i make it a point to stop here on the way home every time we go visit to fill a couple growlers. the edgar IPA is one of the best made in PA. they have a couple beers i keep an eye out for, but i haven’t seen them in quite some time. maybe terry took the recipes with him when he left? i’ll probably never know. they still experiment a decent amount which is nice, but recently haven’t had anything earth-shattering.
food is decent... nicely priced. but i’m here for the beer. they have live music a couple times a week, although i’ve never been there for it.
just make sure you adhere to what the sign on the door recommends: do not park in the adjacent parking lot during business hours. someone bored office worker must sit at a window and call the towing company even before you’ve put your car in park if you don’t belong...
i make it a point to stop here every chance i get.
The Edgar IPA is worth the trip. The food is pretty good too. It can get crowded, especially if live music is on the docket. And, it seems to loud at all times, even without the music. Parking around this place sucks.
I have been to this brewpub on several occasions and have never been disappointed with the beer. There is always a wide variety of well crafted brews to meet my desire. I always leave with a growler of whatever my fancy was that day. In fact, I carry the growler around with me in case I drive by during my work so I can refill and enjoy later.
The service has always been nice, the food alright. The atmosphere is a bit loud sometimes and I have been annoyed by an unexpected cover for a sat. night band when all I wanted to do was have a few brews and some dinner (admittedly, one of the two times this happened to me, the guy collecting the cover paid me back when I left just as the band was starting).
Overall, one of my favorite places to be.
Pretty cool setup with about four tanks directly behind the bar. Older looking place, but has a cool old school feel to it. Few tables with limited seating. Bartenders were very friendly! Beer was above average. They have cool wooden food trays that attach to the top of the bar for you to eat from. Nearby are the Little League World Series fields.
Stopped in this joint on the way back from a run to Bell’s in Michigan. Open, airy and relatively decent pub atmoshpere. Our waitress was friendly, but the bartender seemed to have a problem with pouring a couple of sampler’s of the beers offered, whatever. I was pleasently surprised with the pretty diverse beer menu, notably a couple of Belgians and a Young Barleywine, real cool and not your ordinary APA, Dry Stout, etc. I really enjoyed just about every beer I tried (7), the blond had a bit of a tang in the aftertaste I did not like myself. We all thought the food we had was great, not bad at all, be careful of the hottest wing sauce there, REAL HEAT! The local jazz band was playing in the background and made for a great atmosphere to drink, eat and have fun in. I live 4 1/2 hours away and would have no problem taking a day trip or an overnighter to go back to this brewpub again.
