Strip mall / industrial park somewhat conveniently close to the highway. Large open space, open industrial with vents and shafts, hundred taps all in a line; sports on the TVs, also lots of beer listed on ever-refreshing video screens. They have cans, reserve bottles, interesting sizes. Arcade games. Kid and family friendly, lot of middle-aged women in on their lunch breaks, some blue collar and some hipster, seems like it gets busy quickly. Work in the openly attached brewery mean it also got really noisy really quickly. Converted kegs for urinals. Free wifi, free fruit for kids, sell merch, coffee, etc, a one-stop shop, just a little bit expensive on some things, but the beer is worthy. Cheese sauce dispenser. Had a Hawaiian pizza for myself and it was pretty good! Would go back if in the area, for sure, found it very easy to spend time and money here. [2017.05.19: 86]
We came here on 10th of April 2017. Located in a shopping / industrial estate 5 miles away from Harrisburg center. On the first glance it looks like a copy of Pizza Port in Carlsbad, but after a while you figure out the own character of this brew pub. 103 draft beers, around 30 from their own Pizza boy brewery, most of the other beers are from the nearby area. We had really good stouts, pale and IPA’s. The pizza is also quite ok. Service was super nice and gave us some tatsters for free. Really good beer/pizza place. Just the logo and the merchandise can be improved, but beer quality is definitely more important.
A huge warehouse with food, beer, video games and open seating. No real service the guy serving the beer was a geek and liked to chat. Selection is just awesome with tons of guest taps. Food was good and prices a bit high but worthy of the food quality. This place rocks, with the only issue being no small pours or samples, you must commit.
This place was pretty cool. Lots of screaming and loud children that seemed to belong to a baseball team of sorts. Everything was ordered at the bar with a lone girl walking around and picking up empty plates. The selection is awesome. Since Pizza Boy is known for sours, I was hoping there might be more of those on, but there weren’t. The pizza was great. Boy did I smash that thing. The price was a little high, but it was worth it. I would definitely recommend this place!
Wonderful pizza joint featuring, surprise, Pizza Boy beer. Pizza was spot on, although a little pricey. They have 99+ beers on, including over 30 of their own. Crowlers and growlers to go, no flights though. The beer was pretty good too. You have to order at the counter so no waited but you might get your beer faster that way anyway. I recommend hitting this spot.
Large and busy brewery with food and beer to go coolers. Plenty of parking space. Industrial feel. Clean which is a plus. Huge list of tap beers. Biggest I saw. They do have around 30 beers of their own to try. No samples sadly. Half pours are often of high end price wise. Quality of beers was very good and OK. So hit and miss. Conveniently located close to hwy.
Ton of beers on tap including a crap load of their own. Pizza is good. Crowlers available for almost anything on tap ... what else to say. If this place was closer (~2hr drive) I would be here at least weekly. Only down side is no samplers or flights, but they do sell 8oz pours.
After many years I had a convenient opportunity to visit this revered restaurant/brewery. Located not too far from I-81 at the end of a court. Outside is a standard cinder-block building, inside is an almost industrial-cafeteria style design with beer coolers all over. You order at a register where they bring you food and beer. The draft list is their own offerings and others, some 80+ drafts! The pizza was excellent, the in-house sour drafts were great too. Bottles of beer are sold, and so are growlers/crowlers of their drafts. Service was excellent; I left a very happy person with pizza, a crowler and some bottles. I will be back.
I agree with GenDV138’s comment that Al’s feels a bit like a cafeteria. However, there’s an amazing number of quality taps, friendly service, and great pizza, so I have no complaints. My group visited after the lunchtime rush and found the place still pretty busy. The draught options were pretty dizzying. There were roughly 30 Pizza Boy beers on plus another 60-odd guests. The Pizza Boy beers, especially the sours, were very good and inventive. The guest beers were also strong, and certainly weren’t there just to fill space. The staff were uniformly pleasant, friendly. We split a pizza and were pretty damn satisfied with it. The only downside of this place is that the staff is very hesitant to give out samples, and no flights are available. However, smaller pour sizes are available, so large groups should be able to make a decent dent in the list. Overall, this place is world class.

Nice brewpub in a big open space overlooking the brewing operations. Cafeteria-style atmosphere with a decent sized L-shaped bar and plenty of tables. Friendly service for the most part. Vast amount of taps so you’re sure to find plenty of interesting beers to try. Pretty good amount of house-brewed beers on draft with around 15-20 offerings in the mix of guest taps. Smallest serving size is 8 ounces and you can only order one beer at a time, no flights. Crowlers and growlers available on most drafts. Decent bottle selection available to drink on-site or to-go depending on the beer. Hand tossed pizzas are quite good and filling with just two slices. Good value on beer and food. For some odd reason, there’s no option to tip if paying by credit card so make sure to have some cash. There’s an ATM available. Definitely the best place I’ve been to for the classic pizza and beer combo. A must stop if passing by or in the area.
