Establishment: John Harvard's Brew House, Wilkins Township, PA

Just becasue it's a chain-style brewpub, don't pass judgement. This John Harvards always has a terrific selection of brews, the milk stout is top notch as well as many of thier other brews. The menu is wide ranging and the portions are large. I have not had a bad meal there yet. The atmosphere lends itslef well to an establishment that was built from scratch rather than one occupying an existing structure. You can basically reach out and touch the fermenters as they are integrated into the restaraunt seating area. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a wide selection of quality beers and a decent meal.

Establishment: Red Star Brewery and Grille, Greensburg, PA

If you are a fan of unique establishments, plan a visit here. Located in a restored train station, the bar area is open and roomy. There is a cool mezzanine overlooking the bar area for dining. Great time and care were taken in the restoration of this building, from what I understand, it was in deplorable condition beforehand. Let's not forget the most important element though, the beer! All of their selections are excellent representations of their style and their Ironhorse Stout is damn tasty. I hope to see them expand their beer line but overall the quality is great. The food selection and quality are good, although I was disappointed with their Po' Boy. A great brewpub overall and it's nice to see a brewpub between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg.

Establishment: Uncle Tucker's Woodfired Pizza and Brew Haus, Cumberland, MD

Got a chance to visit here after a meeting in Cumberland a few weeks back and was pleasantly surprised. The downstairs pub, although a bit tight, had a terrific atmosphere, with a brick and stone interior, the sampler of 5-6 beers provided everything from a light ale, I guess their "transition beer", good for its intended audience to an excellent, tasty Scotch Ale and the pizza was superb. If you happen to be travelling on I-68 through Maryland, make sure to stop by.

Awesome! Great N/A Great Awesome!

Establishment: Victory Brewing Company, Downingtown, PA

I really don't think Victory could brew a bad beer even if they tried! Hop Devil rivals any IPA I have ever tasted. Their Old Horizontal Barley Wine is tremendous (seasonal)as well as their Moonglow Weizen Bock (summer). The pub is big and roomy with a nice long bar. I did not get to eat but have been told the food is good. Drink Victory's beers and you will be amazed!

Establishment: Pennsylvania Brewing Company aka Penn Brewery, Pittsburgh , PA

I maek a stop here any time I am in the 'Burgh. The Penn Pilsner has been a staple in my beer diet since I first tried it 3 years ago. The atmosphere is terrific, big oak picnic style tables which are great for a group of friends. Their seasonals are always good and ture to their style and thier regular brews all please (Dark, Gold, Kaiser Pils,Weizen)A bit of Germany right in Pittsburgh.
