Growing up in Lancaster I had no idea of its brewing history. It was great to experience, see and taste firsthand how brewing is still a solid part of the town! I highly recommend making this a part of your Lancaster experience!

Rub shoulders with laborers, night-shift crews, hospital workers, politicians, retirees, entrepreneurs, and college students that inhabit these nostalgic Lancaster establishments. From 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 for a genuine local experience.

  • This will be a walking tour, so wear comfortable walking shoes and appropriate attire.
