One of my favorite East Coast Breweries, and only about an hour North of my house. Basically a warehouse turned brewery with stacks of cases everywhere. Tours/tasting only on Saturday, but its worth it for the low priced mix/match cases. Friendly staff, happy to pour anything they have. Make sure to stop by Wich Brew for a few more after your visit.
Live music and food truck. Very loud. Couldn't hear anything inside. Not my kind of vibe, but that's me. I'm old. Beer you've probably had before. They had a few firkins of limited stuff, but nothing earth-shattering.

Well worth stopping for. Right off Interstate 78. The "last exit" in Pennsylvania, or the first if you are coming in from Jersey. On Line street, in a blue collar residential neighborhood. The web site pics make it look swanky, it is not. It is a warehouse setting, but a great place to taste great beer.
not bad ambiance for a brewery. not special. people are friendly enough when not busy. and they try when busy. food trucks outside. pretty good value since they make great beers and my favorite powerful stouts. some merchandise and couple games outside. here it's the beer!
Ambiance - pretty basic, it's a bar inside a warehouse. However, they have a good crowd, good artwork, and live entertainment.
Service - staff was quick and courteous.
Selection - it's all Weyerbacher, and they make great beers. There is a lot of rares, and lots to try.
Food - unfortunately we weren't there during food vendors day. They do have some snacks available.
Value - reasonable prices on the beer. Merchandise is favorably priced.
FINALLY made it here! Very much a tasting room stuck inside a brewery. I had my back to the brewery, but cases of labels were stacked next to me and the sound of forklifts was common. Kind of a cool vibe to the bar, and a very intimate vibe based on the proximity to the brewhouse. Staff was helpful and friendly. A lot of them, but I imagine they get a little busy. I hope the brewery workers leave early in the day because I had a little bit of trouble finding a parking spot and I was the only customer when I arrived. Many beers on tap, including limited options. Bottles to go were well priced, 4 ounce pours priced reasonably, only hitting Strangeways prices for 13 month barrel aged sours (lower gravity pours $1.75-$2.25). Beer quality was overall very good. Good mix of styles (I tried three sours, pilsner, brown ale, dry stout, barleywine, saison, Belgian Ale, carrot cake infused imperial stout). Recommended stop.
Gave these guys a visit after a day at Dorney Park 20 minutes away. Pretty unassuming place in a warehouse lot, parking seems somewhat limited. Inside is a industrial setting bar with around a dozen drafts, a few tables and merchandise. The 30 minute tour showed off the basics. It’s a small operation that makes some pretty good stuff. The bar sells customer selected mix packs and growlers. If you’re in the area I recommend swinging by.
Pretty industrial tasting room, but feel like you are in the brewery. Lots of their stuff on tap, at least a good amount and several strong and odd beers. Well worth stopping in if in the area, I would certainly go back.
Ambiance: It’s a warehouse brewery, you can’t expect much. The bar is nice though. Service: Friendly service! Selection: Nothing rare on, but their year rounds were there and some seasonals. No complaints. Overall: Don’t expect much. They are a small brewery in an industrial complex. The people there are nice though and going there you’ll get to try most of their beers that they regularly offer.
