Interesting/shoddy location in the middle of a bunch of shops. There’s a small bottle shop in the front with a few interesting bottles for purchase. The bar is large so plenty of seating. Again, some interesting beers on tap including two sours. Food was hearty - had the spicy chilli wings which were pretty good. Bartenders were fine. Definitely a locals pub but with a good enough selection to entice the beer geek. Worth a stop when passing through the area.
Many of the other places in the area were closed on easter Sunday, but this place was open til 2. Small bottle shop inside the front entrance had some interesting choices,including Cascade, Lost Abbey and a new Trois Dames. The bar itself is a large U-shaped bar that fills virtually the while space, except for one pool table and a handful of restaurant tables. Draft choices were solid and included a lambic, a berliner and a new Struise, although it tasted like the Struise had been on for a while. Service was efficient, quick and friendly. Snacks were decent, but they also had a full dinner menu. Lots of TVs for sports and movies. Well worth the trip.
Located in a strip mall next to a CVS and a PA State store. Blue Dog has a large beer list and a small bottle shop included. Draft list constantly changing with many seasonal and one off beers in the rotation. I go for a business lunch, food is decent pub fare. Enough HDTV’s in the place that one would consider it a Sports Bar. Waitress service is good, but I’ll agree with other raters the help are not too beer savvy. That should’t bother the beer geeks.

Didn’t have the food yet, so I will add food info at that time. Found this place by accident, and the bottle selection was outstanding, and the prices were great. A lot of stuff exists here that you won’t see very many other places. Great service, and a quaint bar atmosphere inside. Update 17-Apr-2012. Had the food multiple times, and it is excellent across the board. Service has been great, too. This is a top notch establishment.
I’ve been to this place a few times before and I was there again this morning. The bartender “John” was very knowledgeable about all the beers on tap along with their extensive take out selection. I spent over $100 on take out beer due to his recommendations including my purchase of the Weyerbacher Rapture’s which he recommended and I must say was amazing. This seems like the place that I have been looking for to grow some roots. I live about 10 miles away, but it is well worth the drive to have a selection like they do and to have the staff that knows what they are talking about.
Nice selection of beers, both on draft and in the bottle shop. On some items they have good prices compared to some other peers. Not that many tables though and the staff was not very energetic about their beer.
When I lived in Lansdale this place pretty much got me into craft beer. you can mix and match 6 packs to go, they have great food, and occasional tastings. its a sports bar so worth walking to to catch games if you want something more than yeungling.
Love this place. Service was good. Crowd was "mature" but got younger as the night went on. They have great specials and solid prices all around. Bottle shop has a great selection and the prices are much, much cheaper than other area shops (i.e. Capone’s). Dock some points for the beer being a little too cold and undercarbonated, but other than that a great local spot.
