Plenty of parking, food is good but overpriced. Good selection of their beers....and fresh, but overpriced for this establishment. But, they know people will stop regardless. Worth the stop, I’m glad I did. I would like to visit their original place in Lancaster.
Located in what appears to be a big chain restaurant local in an old strip mall type building, empty on the Sunday PM i was there (a few more patrons arrived after). Service was attentive and friendly, beers are rather uninspired (except the stout) but food was quite good. I had the smoked wings in Bourbon sauce, quite nice and juicy with a French onion soup. Sampler is 10 X 4 on. for 10$, but alas beers were boring.
Brent the Manager, Very nice Gentleman. Our Tri-County beer club made a visit to the facility , for diner and beer rating . he took all the time needed to help us, as well as show us some of his concoctions. Tri-county Beer club will return again simply because Brent made it a memorable time . Thank you Brent
Milk Stout was delicious but the Hop Hog IPA was pretty mild and malty for what I had hoped. I don’t think they had a beer over 60 IBU’s so if your looking for flavor in that department go somewhere else. Food wise I had chili and a burger which was very good.
Food is good (I had the pulled pork). Service is pretty good and the beer is ok. All their beer are made at the brewpub. It is a pretty nice place overall, but the beer is just ok.

Wonderful location on Eisenhower Boulevard right off US 322 and PA 283.
Big place, kinda dark.
Nice menu, many choices - kinda pricey food.
I paid $75.00 for my party of 5 to eat.
We got mainly lunch items when we saw how much the entree’s were.
(Sorry -everybody has got their trigger points!)
The food was very good. Pizza’s, pulled pork sandwiches, mussels The best deli Jewish pickle that I have ever had at a restaurant.Home made BQ kettle potato chips that were fantastic.
I got a sampler for $8.00 which contained 8 4oz samples of the beers that they had on tap.
Now that was a sampler.
Our waiter was Julian and he knew his stuff.
Very attentive, very helpful.
We will be going back here and taking some more friends along.
Typical brewpub that looked clean and well kept. Great service from the bartender, he answer questions about the beer and brought us samples without us even asking. The selection of beer was good and they also have beer to go of their flagship beers. I really didn’t expect much from this place as far as beer goes but was pleasantly surprised. The Milk Stout was really good.
Restaurant has a large dining area, but we chose to sit near the bar. Area was very clean and dimly lit, the bar may hold 15 people or so. 10 taps, all LBC at the time I visited. Pizza was OK, but worth the $12... nah. Lucked out on the happy hour specials; pints were $2-$2.50. Beer is average, the milk stout was the outstanding choice, if that gives you any idea... all in all, a nice place for dinner.
very diff atmosphere then lancaster location.... lancaster seems to be filled with more regulars... beer selection was ok... food was decent, their white chili was excellent and my lamb burger was ok... service here was much better then lancaster location... the prices however were a little too steep for the quality of the food though..
Pretty nice restaurant as far as ambiance is concerned...very modern decor, clean, almost sterile. This used to be Doc Holidays (owned by the same company) and they remodeled it and made it the brewery. Service is always pretty good unless you go in there to the bar at a peak time (Friday night). Selection is basically their own beers, plus maybe a guest tap with ABC or Troeg’s. The food is pretty awesome...the brewery wings are great. I love the food here and at the Lancaster city location, it is basically the same. Overall it is a little pricey for the area, but well worth it in my opinion. I definately love LBC and will keep going back.
Can I just refer you to illinismitty’s review? He basically nails it. The design of the interior and the food menu tells you what they’re tyring to do... trying to seem a level above the Chili’s and other chain places in the area... but they did have 10 taps, with about half of those seasonals, such as a Spring Bock (maibock) and a Franklin Fest (vienna). Not a terrible place to stop while driving through, but the bar area at the end of the building isn’t exactly a drinking place - I feel like someone will yell at me if I spill beer on their perfectly polished counter. Still, not a bad spot.
