Brew Pub: Selin's Grove Brewing - Selinsgrove, PA

A few weeks ago I was visiting family and decided to make a beer detour to Selinsgrove, PA where Selin's Grove Brewing can be found. Here is the Selin's Grove picture gallery documenting the visit to the brewpub and the drive. My first stop was State College to pickup Jeff. Then it was off to Selinsgrove! I enjoyed the drive down 322 and up 522. As we meandered our way towards the Susquehanna river I took in the images of farmland, forest and various small towns along the way. Ok I can't hold back any longer! This is my favorite brewpub of all time! It's a small brewpub run out of the bottom floor of a 200 year old governor's mansion in Selinsgrove. I was told their brewing operation was recently upgraded and moved to a three car garage just across the parking lot in the back (see gallery). How cool is that! The food was great. The service was excellent. The surroundings are very comfortable. Jeff and I ordered a sampler and some dinner. Whoa! Have you ever been to a brewpub that has 10 beers on tap and found that they were all awesome? Until Selin's Grove that was just a dream. Each one was delicious and perfectly inline with its style. I've been raving about this place to people ever since. Thanks to Bryan for telling me about Selin's Grove :-) He mentioned that Lew Bryson and some others have praised Selin's Grove. BTW you can see a list of the beers in the gallery. It was getting late so we decided to head back to our familys. Fortunately I had a cooler in the back of the car. So I purchased one of their fancy growlers full of the organic IPA and a t-shirt and I was on my way home. I stopped to get some ice and followed the Susquehanna river towards Harrisburg.

My friend you hit the nail on the head. I grew up in Selinsgrove, but currently live in DC... I love going home and visiting this place. Next time you go... go during christmas time... There Olde Frosty IPA is probably one of there best.
