Take a “walk” through Our Town.
|Crispy, clean lager beer hopped gently and thoughtfully with Saaz. With the rich, German brewing history present in Lancaster, we believe a traditional Pilsner is a must. A much more delicate, light-handed offering, Pilsner is one of our favorite styles. It pairs beautifully with almost all foods and occasions.|
Style IPA - New England
|Hops Citra, Mosaic|
|Malts Pilsner, Oats, Wheat|

|Words of Wisdom|
Style Vienna Lager
|Hops Northern Brewer|
|Malts Vienna, Munich Light|
|Vienna Lager is arguably the oldest pale lager in history. This style was created by brewers many centuries ago sharing malting and roasting techniques. “Words of Wisdom” is true to style and brewed with all German ingredients. We taste whole grain bread crust and crackers.|
|Cast Away Your Worries|
Style Blonde Ale
|Malts 2-Row, Pilsner|
|Yeast Voss Kveik|
|Pale beer fermented warm with Voss Kveik, lagered for 4 weeks then conditioned on dried sage and orange zest. Drinks like a Belgian wit. Believe in what it is that brings you joy.|

Once used as a preservative, hops are now an extremely expressive ingredient in beer. They can bring flavors and aromas ranging from tropical to earthy, from herbal to citrus. Hops can also provide bitterness and balance to the finished product.

Our Town Brewery
Rob Tarves and Rob Patz grew up in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania and went on to attend Penn State University in State College, Pennsylvania together. Both towns have strong local pride, which became woven into Tarves and Patz. After following his wife to Lancaster to attend a graduate program at Millersville University, Tarves fell in love with Lancaster and knew it was where he wanted to open the brewery.
Genius of Liberty
The “Genius of Liberty” stands at the center of Lancaster city, marking the home of the old city courthouse from the 1770’s.
Beer is more than 90% water. There is no secret, then, that brewing water is extremely important. From mineral content to pH, brewing water has a massive impact on your beer.

Responsible for fermentation, yeast is what turns the sugar water we make, into beer. We use a handful of different yeast strains depending on the style of beer we plan to brew. Some produce more fruity aromas and flavors while some create extremely clean, dry beers.
What We Bring to the Table
Rob Tarves and Rob Patz began dreaming up their vision for Our Town Brewery while homebrewing during college at Penn State. Their time at multiple breweries over the years has driven home the theme that breweries are huge parts of the communities that they operate in. Tarves and Patz have a vision for using fresh, innovative beer and a thoughtful food program to further connect people in Lancaster. A decade later, they are ready to pour you a pint.
