Dark, gritty, and sometimes smoky! If you want to scratch the underbelly of the oldest inland city in America and hang out with the locals, this experience delivers. We’ll take you to some of the oldest and hardest to find neighborhood bars in the city on this casual walking tour through the historic west side of the city. Leave your pretenses behind and rub shoulders with laborers, night-shift crews, hospital workers, politicians, retirees, entrepreneurs, and college students that inhabit these nostalgic Lancaster establishments. Form corner bars, to holes-in-the-wall, to Irish and Italian pubs, these places are the real deal and well worth the walk! Each of these stops will take you back to a time of pool tables, dart boards and mid-western beer along with shared bar snacks – a genuine local experience!

    It was so much fun! My International Guest was smiles from ear-to-ear all night! At one point he said, "I've been to America many times, but I've never experienced anything like this!" The rest of our group was locals and everyone complimented what a good evening we had and how pleasant and professional our LoKal Host, Mike, was throughout the night! It was the perfect experience for my friends from near and far. Thank you!

    This tour was awesome! A perfect balance between history and beer tasting. Michael was a great guide, knowledgeable in both the beer itself and the history behind it. He had a lot of fun facts and anecdotes to add from having lived in the area for so long, which made me feel like I was almost getting an exclusive “behind the scenes” tour of the city. I was a bit worried about following with a Bluetooth connection, but it was no issue at all! Overall a fun, informative tour and a great way to learn about and experience the city of Lancaster while tasting some delicious brews!

    This was my first loKal experience and it was amazing! Michael is very knowledgeable on all the history of Lancaster and on the first wave of brewers to pop up in the area. Most important of all he made us feel comfortable to be around and he is super friendly. I was skeptical going on any tour of Lancaster since I grew up there but he constantly surprised me with information that I plan on surprising my friends with who are still local. I already have recommended this tour to a few friends the next time they are in the Lancaster area.
