Owner description: We cook like we brew...craftsmanship and quality in every detail. From our housemade sausage and cured meats, to locally made cheeses, fresh dough, on-site garden, hand-cut fries and signature burger grind, there's no substitute for fresh, natural ingredients. Fortunate to be located in the heart of Lancaster County, among some of the richest farmland in the world, we're committed to fresh, local and sustainably grown products. Our menu changes often to take advantage of the seasons, and to utilize the fresh produce, dairy, poultry, cheeses and meats produced on the 5,300+ independent, family farms in Lancaster County. Our obsession for brewing great beer is matched by our passion for great, natural food, so we source our produce and meats from local Lancaster County farmers and prepare virtually everything on our menus from scratch. We smoke our pork, grind our sausage and hand-cut our fries.

“good brew”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

We had a good meal--I was a bit put off by the neighborhood, but it was a solid restaurant for sandwiches and apps. Loved the strawberry blond beer.

“One of my favorites!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

The beer is great, the food is awesome, the atmosphere is enjoyable. We've been going to the Lancaster Brewing Company since high school and still get there about every other month. The Harrisburg location is not nearly as good (food wise) in my opinion. At the Lancaster location- the pretzel chicken with the cheese fondue is always amazing, same with the lamb burger and the brewer's chicken sandwich. Ask the server if they have the pretzel appetizer, fresh baked soft pretzels with the cheese fondue- outstanding!

“Great food and drink”

The food was very good and so was the beer. Ask for a sampler and they will bring you a choice of 3 beers.

“Great Burgers to go with your Beer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Great Burgers, pulled pork sandwiches, salads and also have lamb burger. We were here with friends from Australia and they said the Lamb Burger was perfect! Best to try the sample tray of (14) beer - everyone gets an empty glass, (a glass of water) so you can have a taste of each beer. Food cooked to order, Staff friendly, seating overlooks the brewery, reasonable priced. They do not rush you. Free parking beside building, but easy to drive by - so keep a look out for entrance. "So step up to better beer", Hope you enjoy! And let me know, good eating at good prices! "The Philly Traveler"

“No tours on a Friday - really?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

I think the title says it all. We arrived at the brewery around 2 or 3 pm in the afternoon and were surprised to find out that they don't offer brewery tours on a Friday - apparently a very busy time of the week for them. Regardless, we definitely wanted to try some beers, so we orderd their flight which consisted of 14 different beers at only $18, which I thought was a pretty good deal!

I wish I could have seen other parts of the space, so this review is really confined to the dining area and the sampling of beers, both of which were pretty good. The staff was very friendly and attentive and would definitely recommend travelers to hit up this spot, if any to check out the cool ambiance.
