Visited One Guy on a Saturday afternoon in August. I'd been wanting to visit for quite a while, but could never find an opportunity to be near Berwick, short of just driving there. So, we visited during lunch before a gig in Milton, which isn't too far from the town of Berwick.
This place is a little hard to find if you have never been there before. I had to go into a local pizza place to ask for directions. Off the main street, you basically have to go between a car lot and someone's house to get to One Guy. It looks like the brewpub is in an old factory of some sort.
Now, I had heard some people talking about how small this place was, so I was anticipating basically a guy's garage with some tables and brew tanks. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find a nice little clean establishment with a small bar, some tables, a bathroom and some cool local brewania decorating the walls. It did have the atmosphere of drinking in a friend's basement bar, which I personally enjoy.
The selection consisted of four of Guy's brews: a hefe, a pils, a lager and his Season's Wheatings seasonal. I opted for the pils, then the lager, while my wife tried the hefe and the seasonal. Both of my selections were classic and true to style, with excellent body clarity and flavor (see my reviews for more details). As for food, we just decided to BYOF, which made for a nice light lunch paired with some great brews.
Guy is a really nice... well, guy... who enjoys talking about beer and bluegrass, and he will often have some knee-slappin', foot-stompin' tunes playing on the stereo. He also takes great pride in his beers, and the fact that he is the lone employee of his operation makes it that much cooler. This place is definitely worth the drive, not only if you live around the area, but also if you are looking to just kick back and enjoy some classic brews with good people.

What can I say, this place is a real find. Decided to hunt the brewery down on a return trip from State College and almost gave up when I turned down a side street to make a U-turn and saw the sign that said the tap room is open.
By the time we got there, it was a half-hour before closing but Guy cheerfully poured my wife and I pints. The bar was full with great people and good conversation. We ended up hanging out for a few more pints since Guy decided to stay open a bit longer due to the crowd.
When there, there were four beers on tap, all of which were fantastic. My favorite is the wheat beer which goes well with the late-day mid-August weather.
The place is more of a brewery with a taproom attached. He gladly allows people to BYOF (bring your own food) if the hotdogs aren't enough for your tastes.
It's great to encounter a place/person that truely enjoys and understands the craft and is willing to share his talents with the world. If in the Berwick area, hunt it down, you'll be glad.

Went to One Guy Brewery last night 8/9/08l with my buddy. It was a little hard to find, the address said front street in Berwick but it was actually on a side road. Once we got there, it was definitely my kind of place. Extremely laid back atmosphere, door open with no air conditioning, great feel to the place. Beers were great, I had the season's wheatings at the heffe weizen. Great quality beer. Guy is great to talk to, very nice and very knowledgeable about the craft. Affordable beer prices, cool glasses. Like Guy told us, NEPA needs more of these places!

this place is a little hard to find, it's tucked behind an auto garage and an interesting little house. not to say that location alone put him in the Northern Brewer for smallest production brewery in 06 but a sign by the road might help. once you spot it you think, that's probably the brewery back in there, and you're right. there's a nice little tasting room with some tables and bar stools and the One Guy... you know the one. the quality of the beers is outstanding, all three that I tasted were clean well balanced beers. the service was unsurpassed, of course the only competition we had on saturday afternoon was one of the regulars filling a couple of growlers. the selection is good, six beers in all on tap while we were there. the food aparently consists of hotdogs, I'm not sure if he does that for some legal reason, or if he really likes hotdogs. regardless, next time I'll know about the bring your own food policy.

Situated in an old brick warehouse building that used to be a bakery. The inside is small but cozy, a small bar seats 6-7 ppl with several tables about. Some nostalgic beer memorabilia hangs on the wall, most notable was the Pabst signs where Guy had spent some time working. The place is simple yet effective and reminds me of a place someone may have in their basement. Was there early Sunday so not much of a crowd was present but several people came in just before leaving with growlers to be refilled. If i lived here this would definitly be my place to hang out and relax.
The beer quality was good, the beers were cleanly brewed and a nice treat for the local area which is mostly a macro light type crowd. The berwick lager stands out while the pilsner was pretty good as well.
Friendly and prompt, being I was the only one there. Some pretzels were available to cleanse the palate. Gave me time to talk to him about beer.
6 beers were on tap at time, Pilsner, Berwick lager, Seasons Wheatings, Barley town stout, pale, and a Hefe. For a small place and 2 bbl system I thought this was a really good varied selection. More beers and different styles are planned.
Limited. Hotdogs were on the menu but that was pretty much it. Guy encourages a BYOF type of attitude which is good so don't be shy about grabbing a quick pizza to go with that yummy Berwick lager.
thought the pricing was reasonable but im from NJ, and berwick is a whole other story where locals thrive off the $13 case of macro light beer and houses go for what i pay in property taxes in a year.

Guy is making some great beer. If you happen to be on 80 and he is open you really should make a stop. He usually has some hot dogs going and some free pretzels. I've heard he doesn't mind if you bring in your own food though. There is a pizza shop nearby.
Guy built his place on a real shoestring budget and you can usually find a local sitting at the bar drinking some great beer and there seems to be new people walking in all the time.
You really aren't going here to eat though, you are going to try Guy's great beers. He usually is rotating through a few depending on the day. Be sure to stop in and pick up a growler to take home though.
