Bar
“1 of 2 breweries in town that offer a Gastropub experience. Great selection of tasty beers. The space is quite unique because it's a converted brewery | restaurant | gastropub inside of an car dealership. You will have to drive down the street past Kutztown University about a few miles.. you will see it on the left side. Opposite side is a farm and cornfields. Good for a family dinner, a couple, or just a solo evening at the bar. Closes at 10pm and 11pm on the weekends.”
