A small pub carved out just below main street running through Selin’s grove. The outdoor seating is beautiful - unfortunately, it was a miserable, rainy night when we stopped by (Thanks, Ike). The pub normally has about 12 beers on tap. They were a bit understocked when we were there (7 on tap), but the service was excellent, as were the prices ($3-$3.50 pint, $1 for 4 oz sampler, Growler for $13). Menu is very vegetarian friendly. Great little place. The Brewing equipment is right out back, near the parking lot.
Stopped in here last week while on vacation with the family. Old stone building entrance in the back. About 4 tables outside where we sat and maybe twice as many inside with a small bar along the back wall. This place is tiny. Somewhere around 15 on the tap list but almost half were crossed out including everything with Pale in the name. I later found out there was a brew fest in town and maybe thats why their menu seemed so sparse. Anyhow I had a sampler and the beer that was available was top notch! The menu is small but varied and interesting, hummus of the day, and my sandwich were quite good. Great value and attentive staff, I’d be a regular if I lived a bit closer.
Have been twice, first in Aug-2012 and again this past summer. They had about seven taps pouring and provide a sampler of four. The food menu looks great, but I always only think about their chocolate-covered pretzels (from a local artisan). Nice area of town, lots of history in the old house itself. They had a fun indie playlist on but it varies. It’s a nice destination and worth going out of your way to visit, but I didn’t see it as a beer mecca. (5/9/10/8/8/14) 76
What a great place. It is located in the small town of Selinsgrove in a centuries old buildings basement. Great atmosphere with exposed wood and dim lighting. As great as the atmosphere is the beer is the reason I stopped in and it did not disappoint. All taps were flowing and the staff was very knowledgeable and friendly.
There’s a reason this is THE place to be, and it starts with the atmosphere and ends with the menu. By far the best place in the area to get a drink. I only visited briefly, so I can’t speak to how consistent everything is quite like the locals can, but I loved everything they had when I was there and would definitely trust going 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 couldn’t believe is how long this place had been around with out me ever knowing about it or visiting. They’ve been around forever (in brewpub years for sure...like the ’90’s!). So the atmosphere is amazing...stone house on town’s 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 they’re great. Oh wait...haven’t even mentioned the fantastic food...GastroPub standards. So what am I forgetting...hmmm...oh yeah...the beer! Well go figure...that’s 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 can’t go wrong here...unless of course you come when it’s too busy to get in...which I would guess happens frequently. Go out of your way to visit this gem!
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 didn’t eat, but the food looked nice. Overall, I found this place to be pretty charming. Worth a stop.
Nice brewpub in the old towny area of Selinsgrove. A few tables outside for patio seating, small bar and a good amount of dining tables inside. Small and cozy interior with a bit of a weird smell I couldn’t quite place. Friendly enough service. Decent selection of house-brewed beers, stouts were solid. Didn’t try the food but the pretzel looked good. Excellent value on beer with several serving sizes including individual $1-2 4 oz pours. I wouldn’t go out of my way but it’s a good stop if you’re passing by or in the area.
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 wouldn’t know how to get to it. Nice place.

Stopped by after the Bullfrog Grrrz release. Really relaxed log cabin/cottage feel in the quaint city of Selins Grove. Outdoor seating and a nice full menu? Yes please. The service was friendly and the food was good. A little out if the way but a fun beer destination.
Stopped in on a Friday afternoon. Not as easy to find as I’d hoped, though not all that difficult; GPS had me in the right area and then it was a matter of looking for signage, so get to know that dog on the treadmill! Late-summer/early-autumn outside seating cramped but beautiful, one of the many old and lovingly restored houses and stores in the tight little downtown, nice stone and vegetation, leveling and shade. Inside is really surprisingly small (especially the kitchen!), but only the bar can feel a bit cramped with the traffic, as the tabled areas are much better described as ’cozy.’ They had some Oktoberfest food specials that I was sure to jump on and yowza they were amazing (and locally-sourced). Beers were as superb as you’ve heard, at the very high end in quality, also strong in creativity and breadth of styles/variety. My server was super-competent and a real delight to talk to -- all things considered, one of the best drinking experiences I’ve had in the States.
They do offer 32 oz growlers along with the standard size, and will fill non-SG growlers. There are different pricing tiers depending on seasonal/specialty status, and overall volume is capped by state law (if memory serves, three 64 oz growlers at a time), but you’re going to want to get one or two to take home.
Feel my effort in detouring to come here was rewarded and I would certainly tack on an extra hour to a journey to make sure I can pass through again. Don’t wait for the Kriek, visit as soon as you can!
