Description: Our original Appalachian Brewing Company brewpub is located in historic Harrisburg, PA. The impressive three-story brick and heavy timber structure was built circa 1915. The lagering room portion of the brewery dates to 1890. Throughout the brewery, antique brick walls, massive wooden beams, hardwood floors and ceilings provide a warmth and inner glow rivaled only by the beer itself. We are proud to be the first and only brewery in the Pennsylvania State Capital since 1951. ABC serves fresh innovative cuisine to match our tremendous handcrafted ales and lagers! We hope to see you soon and look forward to serving you and your friends often!

“ABC has great beer, and a really cool atmosphere.”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

While a bit skeptical about visiting a restaurant chain brewery, we were very pleasantly surprised about AbC's both beer and food! The atmosphere was awesome, and the brewben panini (Reuben) was great as well as the fiery hot wings. We did beer tastings and the top favorites were the American single hopped small batch, and the wheat beer. I would reccomend going here, and if I'm ever in the area again ill be going back!

“Great Root Beer and home made beers....”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Great Wings, and the Fish and Chips is great most of the time. Eat here about once a month or so.... salads and burgers are also good.

“Moscow Mule & Soft Pretzels”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Great Moscow Mule with fresh hand-squeezed limejuice and their own Ginger Beer. Pair it with REAL Soft Pretzels and a great server and you have a nice pitstop.

“Liked it so much we ate there twice!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Located in an industrial section of Harrisburg, 2 miles from the Staybridge Suites, this restaurant serves quality food at reasonable prices. There is a microbrewery on the premises, so all the beer is brewed on site. In addition, they also serve their own Root Beer which is addictive.
Offers range from meatloaf, to burgers, to individual pizzas. There are also sandwiches and salads on the menu. Restaurant has a warehouse/rustic feel with high ceilings and wood finishing. The bar has actual ceramic stein. The service was great and the staff was very friendly.
All in all this was such a nice change from the franchise restaurants that we usually end up at when we are away.
