Spending Veterans Day (Nov. 11, 2016) in Gettysburg took all day so as the sun began to set at 4:30, wife Persimmon and I decided it was time to eat and have a brew.

I had wanted to try Appalachin Brewing but thought it too far away. Didn't realize they had a location in Downtown Gettysburg but came upon it by chance.

A Friday. A holiday. Dinner-time. Yep. Place was packed but we waited all of 6 minutes before we got seated.

Gold star #1

All you can eat fish & chips!

Gold star #2

Everything on the beer board...all 18 brews...were available for tasting!

Gold star #3

We settling for a salad, a Scottish ale and Doppelbock...both were WONderful as were the fish and chips. The barley wine, not enough fruit flavor and a bit too hoppy...the Chocolate Stout, too much hop bitterness, the Maple Brown...just enough with a slight sweetness to balance it off

When we left a bit before 6, people were standing 4 deep waiting to get a table and although, not too cold (55 degrees) no one sat in the picnic-sized beer garden.

If any of you reading this review were there, I do hope you waited -- it was all well worth it and if you did...

I went by the Appalachian Brewing Company's Gettysburg location on the first Friday in January. I had expected the place to be empty with it being as far out of tourist season as it is possible to get but the place was full. I think this dispels the notion that all their beer is being consumed by Civil War buffs. The location has plenty of room but the layout of the restaurant and bar is a bit strange with the bar area being upfront and small and the restaurant being down a hallway but fairly spacious. I had a flight of 8 that included, Hoppy Trails India Pale Ale, Jolly Scot Scottish Ale, Mountain Lager, Purist Pale Ale, Susquehanna Stout, Trail Blaze Organic Brown Ale, Volks Weizenbock and Water Gap Wheat Ale. Of these the Purist Pale Ale and the Water Gap Wheat were quite tasty. I'm normally a dark beer kind of guy but I didn't care for the Stout. The prices were reasonable and the service was good. The food was about what you'd expect at a pub, good hearty fair. This location is worth a stop.

Appalachian Brewing Company has 4 brewpub locations, all in Pennsylvania. ABC's standard offering of beers is decent and includes light Mountain Lager, crisp Purist Pale Ale, unfiltered Water Gap Wheat, Hoppy Trails IPA (6.2%, my favorite), Jolly Scot Scottish Ale (5.5%), malty Trail Blaze Brown, and robust Susquehanna Stout. For any fan of beer, this brewpub is a must-do if you're in town touring Gettysburg (nice to find a brewery in a small town!). The Gettysburg location usually also has a few specialty brews that may be brought over from the ABC locations. My own preference is stronger beers, so the IPA, Brown Ale, and Barleywine were my favorites.

Took a walk to this place while staying in downtown Gettysburg (on the square). It's almost a mile out of town - somewhat of a hike on the hot and humid day we went - but worth it overall.
We stopped in for a late lunch and a few drinks and were impressed with the food menu and selection of in-house brews. They have a full bar and about 8-10 of their own taps as well as a few Belgians from other breweries in bottles. I had an IPA and a Hefeweizen, each of which were good (but not terribly remarkable). Likewise the food was pretty good although there were some little things that could be improved upon (cheap roll almost ruined the Brie and chicken sandwich for example).
The bar area was filled with personal beer mugs from some sort of beer club and seemed to indicate a much more interesting group of regulars than the civil-war loving q-tips present that day. When leaving I discovered a pool table and meeting room in the basement (but no bar down there!?) next to the rest rooms -- perhaps indicative of the desire to be a really fun brew pub while needing to cater to the conservative elderly tourists...I'd bet this place is quite different in the winter when the local college is in session.
All in all it's well worth a stop.

Really a nice surprise location. Beers were really solid considering there are no other breweries really anywhere else nearby.

In particular, the Jolly Scot Scottish Ale, Hoppy Trails IPA and Susquehanna Stout were memorable.

Located only a few miles outside of downtown Gettysburg, so a nice place to go to get out the congestion to grab a bite to eat. Almost all of their beers are also available in bottles which I have never seen in stores.
