|Ever Grain Brewing Company
4444 Carlisle Pike | Camp Hill, PA 17011
Ever Grain Brewing Company was added to the ever-growing list of craft breweries in the Harrisburg area when it opened its doors in September 2016.
Located at 4444 Carlisle Pike in Camp Hill, Ever Grain is located in the former Sun Motors car dealership complex with other businesses like Cork & Fork, Evolve Salon, and Our Kitchen Table.
Ever Grain’s taproom is located in a large, wide open space with high ceilings, reminiscent of the Tröegs Brewing Company taproom in Hershey. There is a massive L-shaped bar with plenty of seating, which frames the barrels and fermenters. The 18-barrel brewhouse sits comfortably in the corner.
Biergarten-style tables offer a comfortable space to enjoy a flight of the 10 beers on tap. The beers on tap during our visit included…
- HellYes – 5.2% ABV light-bodied German Helles lager; soft malty sweetness accented by delicate German hops.
- Camp Pils – 5% ABV Classic German-style Pilsner; slightly hoppy with a dry malt finish.
- Fluffhead – 5% ABV Bavarian-style Hefeweizen with notes of ripe banana and clove.
- Kaboo – 5.5% ABV easy-drinking Pale Ale brewed with a wheat malt; light-bodied, straw colored beer with a generous amount of American hops.
- Joose Juicy – 6% ABV Mid-Atlantic take on a New England-style IPA; a hop character of dank, resinous hops; very piney and citrusy.
- Surf Breaker – 7% ABV full-bodied West Coast-style IPA; a huge hop character with notes of mango, pineapple, and passionfruit.
- The Udder One – 6% ABV chocolatey and creamy full-bodied stout with soft roast hints and balanced sweetness.
- Dark Necessity – 10% ABV strong Russian Imperial Stout with roasted flavors of coffee and molasses and underlying notes of dates and raisins.
- Autumn Bell – 5.8% ABV full-bodied American-style porter with hints of roasted chocolate and sweet caramel.
Sadly, Saison Do Fromm, a Belgian-style ale had kicked, however the other offerings more than made up for it. The consensus at our table was that Kaboo and Joose Juicy were the definite favorites.
In addition to beer, Ever Grain also serves ciders from Big Hill Cider and wines from Cassel Vineyards Wine.
Hungry? Red Sky Cafe serves up delicious food including Salads like the Carlisle Salad with spinach, arugula, smoked red peppers, pickled red onion tossed with balsamic reduction, crispy fried oysters, and lemon dill aioli.
The Low Country BLT served with fried green tomatoes, applewood smoked bacon, iceberg lettuce, and smoked tomato remoulade was a favorite among the crowd, along with the flatbreads and burgers.
Snacks like Dirty South Fries, Red Sky Pub Pretzel, Smoked Wings, Sweet N’ Smokey NC Shrimp, and Kosher Fried Pickles were flying out of the kitchen, as well as the “Ocean Infused” options like the crab cake sandwich, fish tacos, oyster po boy, and shrimp & grits.
The taproom is family friendly, and the pub offers a kids’ menu.
