I love Appalachian Brewing Company Beer. They bottle and sell to the local market. This location is their original. It has a great factory feel. If you check out this location I would also visit them in Gettysburg and Lititz ABC (and Iron Hill) attempts to be a gastropub however I haven't like the food at any of their locations. Overall the beer is very good but the food isn't so much.

Ps Check out their root beer. I paid for an entire case!

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. There is also always a seasonal or specialty brew on tap. The location of the Harrisburg brewery is not particularly inviting, but it's worth the drive and the crowd indicates a loyal following. Good atmosphere inside, so take the time to try the sampler. Hoppy Trails IPA and Trail Blaze Brown are good, and the one-time offerings "Cervesa Limon" and "Mad Cameron Belgian White" were both bold creations. Worth a visit, try the sampler.

I've stopped in 3 times now, and am really starting to like this place. Can't say much for the food, haven't really eaten anything other than the spinach/artichoke dip (was pretty good), but the beer has been great.

And to say this place has a good selection would be a HUGE understatement. Last visit they had 13 different flavors on tap! Even if I was staying overnight, don't think I could get through that tap list.

What I like the most about the beer here is that it's been very consistent. I've bought their sampler pack at the beer store a number of times, and it tastes the same in bottle as it does on tap, which I think speaks very highly for both their systems.

Seriously, there is something for everyone at ABC, and I'm sure I'll be back again.

I wasn't too impressed with the ABC. My brother and I stopped in for a lunch beer, we each had one and decided to move up the road to the next stop. Both beers had that bitter, weird water taste that some brewpubs seem to have. I don't claim to have the best beer palate, but my brother is pretty experienced and he came to the same conclusion. The facility itself is nice enough looking.

Maybe it was a bad day for the beer, who knows, but we headed to the selins grover brewery next and saw what it's really supposed to be like.

won't be returning, but that's not to say it's a terrible place, their beer just didn't seem to cooperate is all.

This is my favorite place in Harrisburg to find great beer and good food. The selection is fantastic, especially in comparison to the options in the rest of the City. I've never had a beer there that I didn't like and have found the wait staff to be very open to giving samples before you choose a brew.

I find the atmosphere to be fairly family-oriented during the day, and far less so at night. So, choose when to go based on which of these options you're looking for. I agree with the other reviewer that the smoky atmosphere can definitely affect the experience in a negative way.

Parking can be a little tricky. The lot next to the place is rather small, but there usually is ample street parking.

Overall, a fantastic place for a great beer.

Production brewery and brewpub. Had nine beers on tap with something for everyone. The IPA and stout were very good. The wheat beer was very refreshing and would make a nice summer beer. There is smoking on the premises (that's why a lower score for atmosphere) and unfortunately I was surrounded. The chipotle wings were very tasty. Parking seems to be a bit limited. All in all a nice experience and I will stop there again.
