“The eternal tap lives on”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

It had been years since I'd tour this brewery which is the third oldest in the country, and before the microbrewery and craft beer explosion, was the third smallest as well. With a perky young guide, beautiful new labels showcasing Elk Country, and an Indian Pale Lager to complement their Amber and Original, this family brewery is better than ever. Stop in anytime, sign in and enjoy two free beers from the eternal tap. Tours are offered in the morning and at 12:30. Reserve on line or call ahead. Closed toed shoes are required, and no children under 12.

“Finally made it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

The Straub brewery is one a few famous central PA breweries and for beer lovers is worth the stop in ST Mary's. The biggest draw of course is the eternal tap. Te hard part is choosing between the amber and the lager. Good trip and an hour well spent.

“Don't miss the Eternal Tap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

There's not much that needs to be said about the Straub Brewery. It has been here forever; they make great easy-drinking American-style beers; and you drink for free at the Eternal Tap. Straub has been my go-to for decades!

“Great Small Brewery”

This is a really good small town brewery with great tasting and very fresh beer. Brewery gives tours, has tasting and a nice gift shop. You can also buy your beer right there at the brewery.

“The Brew House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

The tour was nice and the guide was very informative. We also enjoyed the Eternal Tap after the tour. Tour last about a half hour and is worth it.
