Products



  Broad Street Barleywine
Our Barley Wine is dark red in color and has an original gravity of 1.120 (24 Plato). The malt complexity of this classic ale style is incredible. The Broad Street Market is located just blocks from the Appalachian Brewing Company. This indoor farmers market was built in 1863 and is one of the oldest continuously operating farmers markets in the United States. The beautiful brick façade and natural wood doors are typical of the structures in Downtown Harrisburg; including our own building.
  Hoppy Trails India Pale Ale
This IPA is an exciting beer with a floral in aroma and an incredible hop flavor. The maltiness is increased (over a regular pale ale) to help balance the aggressive hop usage. This contributes to the higher alcohol content as well. When India was part of the British Empire, pale ale shipped to the troops would often spoil due to the rough voyage and temperature extremes. The brewers had a theory that if they loaded the beer with extra hops, the hops would preserve the beer. Of course, this added significantly to the beer’s flavor and aroma. When the troops returned to Britain, they had become "hop-heads", appreciating the beauty of the hop "over-influence". Regular pale ale was simply not enough anymore! A new beer style, India Pale Ale, had been created: an aggressively hoppy and now quite happy to be home pale ale.
  Jolly Scot Scottish Ale
This flavorful sweet ale has a smooth malt finish balanced against a light hop flavor. This beer is very quaffable and has become a brewpub favorite throughout the United States. "Jolly Scot" was a famed local beer produced by R.H. Graupners Brewery that was located at 10th and Market – one block from our brewery.
  Mountain Lager
The Dortmunder-Export style of beer was developed in Westfalen, Germany, and is a classic light lager with great character. This style boasts a light golden blonde color and exhibits a moderate hop palate. The finish of our Mountain Lager is rich yet mellow. Our brewers have developed this beer as a tribute to the Appalachian Mountains where we live and play.
  Purist Pale Ale
Our light copper pale ale has a delicate malt attribute balanced by an aggressive hop flavor and aroma. Many American micros have developed their own version of this classic English style beer. Our brewers anticipate that you will enjoy their variation. Hikers on the Appalachian Trail are considered "purist hikers" if they cover every inch of the trail during the hike. Our brewers refuse to compromise the quality of our products with the "purist hiker" in mind.
  Susquehanna Stout
This representation of the classic Irish Dry Stout has a smooth roast flavor due to the use of specially roasted barley. The barley kernels are kilned at very high temperatures until they are dark brown to black in color. The Susquehanna River is named after the Susquehannock Indians who settled in our area. This shallow river is over one mile wide in the Harrisburg area and flows from central New York State through Pennsylvania to the Chesapeake Bay.
  Trail Blaze Organic Brown Ale
ABC's Trail Blaze Brown Ale is now certified by PA Certified Organic and USDA Organic for production in our Harrisburg brewery. We installed a separate organic ingredient handling system and brewed the first batch of Trail Blaze in October. This fine beer is currently conditioning in our tanks and will be ready for next month's release. Look for this product at all ABC locations, fine area pubs and beer bars, and distributors throughout the region. Trail Blaze is an all-American, all-organic beer micro-brewed using the finest organic ingredients. Our deep copper colored American Brown Ale has smooth roasted caramel flavors balanced by an evident hop bitterness and aroma. Trail Blaze is environmentally sound, all ingredients are grown to the highest organic standards, it's healthy and it just plain tastes better!
  Water Gap Wheat
This light refreshing wheat beer is sure to delight. Our special yeast and blend of malted and unmalted wheat provide the haze in our unfiltered style ale. This beer is traditionally served with a lemon slice on the side. There are many water gaps along the Appalachian Trail. These water gaps were established where large rivers cut through the Appalachian Mountain Range. The Susquehanna River creates one of the more visually appealing water gaps just north of Harrisburg in the area at the Dauphin Narrows.
