A Note About Dining With Us.

We’re extremely honored to have our doors open to you at this time. We are taking the Global Pandemic very seriously and commit to providing you with the best dining experience we can during this time. Here are some notes about our current status:

  • We are not taking reservations and maintain a “first come, first serve” approach.
  • All guests must wear a mask when not seated.
  • Crowlers are available to purchase
  • All alcohol sales require a food purchase at this time (which won’t be so difficult because of how amazing our chef is!)

Our Food

An inspired menu tailored to complement our crafted beers.

Hops
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.
Pocket Watch
In recognition of Hamilton Watch Company which impacted generations of Lancaster residents. Over 100 years of production in Lancaster, an impressive icon.
Malt
Barley, wheat, oats, rye.. Malt provides the beer with color, sugar (eventually alcohol), sweetness, bitterness. The unsung hero of brewing, standing in the shadow of hops.
Red Rose
The Red Rose City, our town. The symbol brought over to honor Lancaster, England.
Our Mark
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.
Water
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.
Lancaster City Map

Yeast
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.
Our Story
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.
