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.
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.
Its a warehouse with a tasting room/store right in the middle. They had 12 beers on tap, cases and 12 oz bottles for sale. All the beers were part of the regular lineup with the exception of 2. I was disappointed in I was hoping for some beers that were not part of their regular distribution.
Ambiance: Typical Warehouse Brewery with a rectangle serving station up by the front door.
Service: Bartenders were decent and friendly
Selection: They had 14 beers on tap while I was there, plus they were opening bottles of Rhumpshaka too.
Value: They still do not charge for beers yet, so do not go there expecting a pint...their policy is 6 - 2.5oz pours for free. As much as I like free beer, I prefer a pint over a plastic sipping cup.
Overall: A nice place to visit but not something that I would stop at frequently for free samples. Most beers that they had on tap were common distro’d beers.
Standard warehouse brewery with a decent-sized taproom and merchandise area right as you walk inside. The area is open and looks into the brewing and packaging areas. Huge number of taps with many of their trademark beers and a few taproom-only selections. All beers are served as free 2oz pours with no pints or flights sold. Good prices if you’re buying beers to go with a large selection of their beers and the ability to buy as singles. Fun place with great, friendly staff.
