I went to the Lancaster Brewing Company on the advice of a friend who went to the relatively nearby Millersville University. He said it was a popular hangout for the local college students.
Directions were kind of tricky as there are many one way streets, but we found the place with minimal problems and parallel parked on the street running next to LBC.
The atmosphere is nice. Very high ceilings, nice antique wood from when this place must have been a factory. You can see the brewing area over the railing across from where you enter.
We all got their pizzas and were not disappointed. Between the group of us, we also tried nearly all of the beers (Amish Four Grain, Strawberry Wheat, Gold Star Pilsner, Hop Hog, and Franklinfest). I know there are seasonals available, as well as a Milk Stout (brewed with lactose). Everything I tried was great, but I loved the Amish Four Grain.
This probably isn't the greatest place for kids (although you could definitely bring them), but if you are in Lancaster and looking for a brewpub, this is a great place to stop. You could also check out Bube's Brewery in Mount Joy.
There's a small giftshop by the door where you can buy merchandise and yes, the ever elusive 6-pack.
