This is a very characterful old house right on the main drag of a picturesque town right on the river. The bar is in the basement, and thereís a small dining area that opens onto a small patio. Locals and staff alike were very friendly. Several beers were out, but the ones remaining were tasty. You can do any beers in 4 ounce samples, sort of a build your own flight. Food was also good, with creative choices. Nice place.
Fantastic little cafe-style brewery with a dark, crowded bar room and a relaxing but small outdoor seating area. Crowd was all locals, mix of young and old. Food menu looked great but I didnít eat, instead I had three of their beers, of course the kriek as well as the SNAFU IPA and the Baltic Porter... these two were nothing compared to the kriek... I feel like driving the 90-or-so miles back out just for that.
Another nice oasis in central PA. This is an old, French countryside decorated brewpub below street level. The service was pretty good, complete with the chef coming out to talk it up with some locals he knew. There was no food for us on this stop, so nothing to report there. The dozen or so house beers available were pretty good, though The Kriek still eluded me.

A local institution. My favorite of their beers, by far, is the stealth triple. They only let you have three in one sitting, but you can switch to other beers. Fantastic ambiance: appropriate for a family outing, dinner friends, or a romantic rendezvous. Not a big place so youíll need to arrive early, especially on the weekends, to get a table.
Kind of in the middle of nowhere, but worth the trek. Small, intimate bar area and tables in a stone walled basement. Nice ambiance. Bartender was helpful. Flight of all the beers on offer for $13 or so, a good amount of beer. Beers have a bit of a rustic edge to them but are well made and quite good. Did not try the food. Street parking was simple and it looks like they have parking around back, but I wouldnít know how to get to it. Nice place.
Intimate brewpub in an old townhouse. We visited at dinnertime on a Friday and found the place to be very busy with local diners. We squeezed up against the small bar and were pleased to discover a range of house beers available in $1 taster pours. Unfortunately, their famous kriek was unavailable. The dark beers were tried were very good. Their stout, served on cask, was in excellent condition. We didnít eat, but the food looked nice. Overall, I found this place to be pretty charming. Worth a stop.
Very cool place, extremely easy to miss since there is no sign really on the main street there (Market St ?). There is a small sign off the main road that says Brewery & Pub with a piglet. No mention of the actual brewery name. Walk down a garden path behind the unlabeled building and in the basement floor is a secret brewpub called Selins Grove. Ambiance is mega dark, almost lightless inside with old, 1700s tavern feel. Oil lamps, wooden beams, low ceilings, wooden stalls. Tap list is all house beers with quick rotation and a local cider that was very good. Quality level of the house beers was high- excellent witbier, ESB, IPA. Stout and porter were decent. Allows flights of all beers on tap. The organic Pils was very nice. Let me fill up a Tired Hands growler here of anything on tap- I chose the ESB. Bottom filled but not CP filled. Attentive staff, very local vibe with regulars dropping in and out. Family atmosphere in the main dining room. Loved the antebellum decor. For food we had a very good smoked salmon quesadilla with homemade sweet salsa that was boss. Very cool place. Would love to come back for the Pumpkin beer release. Remember there is a small parking lot in the back. On the GPS it only spits you out in front of the piglet sign, which is not very helpful.

Off the beaten track on the 15 North, this place requires a commitment of time and good travelling weather. It can be combined with a pub tour up to Williamsport. There is ample nearby parking, just look out for the number which I think would be hard to see at night. There were local alkiís hanging out outside when I arrived,There were 9 taps, only their own, and 2 casks with nothing on. The place consists of a few rooms in an old house, one loaded with games which is a nice touch. The prices were reasonable for drink or food. Server was a mother hen who knew naught of beer but that there are hops in it. The beers wre above average, there was almost no info around, and you had to read the tap yourself, a little sign over it in the back.
What a great place and an amazing find! (yeah "find"...like Columbus finding America long after a host of others had...lol!) What I really couldnít believe is how long this place had been around with out me ever knowing about it or visiting. Theyíve been around forever (in brewpub years for sure...like the í90ís!). So the atmosphere is amazing...stone house on townís historic main street...outside patio...dark low wood-beamed ceiling inside with fireplace and cool bar! I mean everything is perfect about this place...then you meet the staff...and theyíre great. Oh wait...havenít even mentioned the fantastic food...GastroPub standards. So what am I forgetting...hmmm...oh yeah...the beer! Well go figure...thatís great too! They had like 13 drafts when I was there including the hand pump and a cider. These were "really" great beers. I bought and took home a growler of their IPA...but loved at least a 1/2 doz of the others. You really canít go wrong here...unless of course you come when itís too busy to get in...which I would guess happens frequently. Go out of your way to visit this gem!
This was our last stop on the first day of our road trip to RBSB and it was totally worth the stop. Met up with Kramer who also showed us a great time (even driving us to ride the roller coasters at Knoebels). Nice ambience inside (although it did feel a little bit dark) with a fairly homey vibe throughout. We were lucky enough to arrive the day after their beer festival so we got to try a nice selection of stuff. The Phoenix was awesome (as expected) and the Baltic Porter was pretty nice too. Our server was quite friendly and the food everyone had looked tasty (although I didnít eat). Definitely worth stopping if youíre in rural PA.
