“Great micro brew and burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

We have never had a bad meal here. Great food, outstanding beer and fantastic service! Try the Red Mo beer and any of their burgers. A great gem in State College!

“Extremely Overrated.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2012

This place has much to learn about micro brews. Atmosphere was very snooty and the food was bland for the price. Taught at Penn State for two years and would recommend Gamble Mill in Bellefonte.

“I'll Have Another”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

Great local brewery. Ask to sit in Liam's section. He is very knowledgeable about the beers and the local area. Food is good. But did I mention the beer?
