Nice set up!

We only stopped for a taste. We were pleasantly surprised. The beer was unique and full bodied I would recommend stopping in. The staff was super friendly and short tours are available.

Overall - the first thing that strikes me about this place is that they have a variety of beers. It's not just an ale house with run of the mill ales you could make at home with different IBUs of hops. The hop thing is overdone and they are masters at multiple types of beers. I had a very good... More

Got the Bison Burger and it was borderline magical. Great location with outdoor seating. Mathis place is worth checking out if you happen to be in the area.

Traveling through town on our way home my wife and I stopped to sample their offerings and get a bite to eat. The sample was a nice collection and it was really hard to pick a favorite. I had a bison burger which was excellent with the homemade fries which my wife decided were hers. This is definite a place... More

Strawberry Wheat beer is one of the best beers I've tried. The white chili at this restaurant is to die for We ate here twice days out of our three day stay. Reasonable prices and great service!

Baked pumpkin ale brew is out of this world. Very good service! Food wasn't quite as good as I expected but still delicious! Would definitely come back!

We have been to Lancaster Brewing Company twice now for dinner, and both times have had great food. With the addition of a large outdoor seating area, even on a Friday evening we were able to get a table without a wait. We started with beer battered onion rings which had a unique dipping sauce that was really good. Our... More

We went for dinner while on vacation with the young kids and the grandparents and there was something on the menu for everyone. Don't miss out on the soft pretzels with cheese sauce. Delicious! Service was attentive. Nice casual place.

My wife, daughter and I visited the Lancaster Brewing Company for dinner while on vacation. We all had sandwiches and they were all tasty. I tried a beer paddle which is a good way to sample six of their brews. The building is old and has a lot of character. The only downside is that the acoustics are bad so... More
