This is the place to go during the summer, fall, winter, or spring because you feel like it's the perfect place no matter what time of the year. I love going to the Fridge in the Fall and winter because of their little coal stove that sits in the back side of the room and the comfy couches and seats that surround it.
I love the pizza when it's freshly made with all natural and organic ingredients. They're so creative and imaginative with their concoctions.
The tap list can be quite impressive at times and sometimes they can get some rare stuff or something great that you can't get anywhere else in the area.
Check out their bottle selection in the fridge and on the opposite wall where near the entrance, I'm sure you'll find a bottle that will sooth the soul.
My favorite thing about this place is that they have a pretty solid, and rotating, selection of Mikkeller products.
Oh by the way, message them on Facebook to check in about certain bottles, they'll respond as quickly as possible with the best customer service.

The staff of this establishment bent over backwards to help in finding a certain beer that we were looking for and they were more than eager to recommend some for me to try. They have a huge selection of cold and room temp beers for you to choose from.

When I walked into the Fridge for the first time I had already looked it up, read articles and gotten good reviews from a few friends, but none of that prepared me for the awesomeness that is The Fridge. I walked in the door and across from me was a display case full of the most awesome specialty pizza I had ever seen in person, and to the left of that was a long row of coolers filled with the most extensive beer selection, by a landslide, that I had ever seen. Bottles ranged from $3 to around $12 and of course there were some rarer big bottles in the for a pretty penny. The cheaper beers were nothing to turn my nose up at though, I had never seen or heard of most of them let alone tasted them. The layout of the restaurant itself was comfortable and def did a good job of drawing your attention to the product. There's also another section of room temp beers across from the coolers that has an awesome collection of rare and/or corked bottles, its sweet. If your in Lancaster and you love beer, Check It Out!!!

I love going to The Fridge to try hard-to-find beers on tap, but it is rather pricey. The bottles are priced well however and it's nice to grab a variety pack of several different beers. The flatbread pizzas are pretty good with a lot of fresh ingredients.

The Fridge is an excellent place to go to unwind, have a brew, a slice, and enjoy someone's company. The staff are helpful and mostly knowledgeable and the shop is very clean and fashionable. Food is solid as well. Selection is pretty unrivaled for the area. My only real gripe is the astronomical prices. Hoppin Frog stuff for $18-22? Ive seen the same beers at another local spot for $12-16. Founders Backstage releases for $23-30? Cmon now, that's gouging at its finest. Don't get me wrong, some of their bottles are reasonably priced but the majority are just marked up way too much. The Fridge, while expensive, is still very much worth checking out.

This was sort of just a quick walk-in / drive-by to check the place out, but I might as well give my impression. I actually thought this was a really cool place, being primarily a bottle shop, but also offering beer on tap as well as food. It's a pretty small place, no actual bar that I noticed, but there are a few tables to sit at. I'd imagine it would suck on a busy night. Contemporary design/decor, simple and laid back. Maybe a good place to share a casual round of beers with friends, but not a place where you'd take the lady out for dinner. A few good local/craft brews on tap, and a pretty good selection of bottles, even if nothing was extremely uncommon. I'm not sure if they get special allotments of in-season wales there or what. Prices were about typical for higher end "make your own 6-pack" bottle shops in PA. We didn't have any food, but it looked like mainly thin-crust pizza with local food options for topping, giving some higher price tags.
A neat little place overall, and--depending on the size of your wallet--probably one of the better bottle shops in Lancaster (just a guess, since I haven't been to any other ones).

A: Minimalistic with some local art displayed, which are both in good taste.
Q: Nothing feels 'cheap' here; I'm talking tables, chairs, decor, service area, etc.
SV: There is a slight awkwardness about the food/beer ordering. You stand in the same line to purchase both and, at times, the line can be excessive. Also, the place itself is relatively small in size so if you find yourself there on a busy "food" night you'll be bumping your rump into peoples tables that are pushed up close to the beer fridges. They added an outside eating area which is a nice upgrade to pull people outside during the summer months.
SL: In Lancaster county, it's one of the best six-pack/single-serve, carry-out places you will find, period. There is one or two good distributors that have just as nice of a selection but now you're talking cases. This is the go-to place for selection and convenience for sampling mix-and-match six packs.
F: All local ingredients with a flair for some unique food combinations. They're specialty is pizzas but they've been ramping up their food selection to include stuff like homemade soups, cheese plates, flatbreads and other unique snacky menu items.
V: Yes, they are a tad pricey but you get what you pay for. I want to sample as many beers as possible from around the globe without the commitment of full/partial cases so this is the it really. I don't mind paying higher prices; the ownership is local, the employees are local, the ingredients are local and they showcase some good quality local breweries. I'll pay more to ensure my money stays local.

Stopped by to check out their selection. Very nice take out selection and the draft list was good. We didn't have the pizza because we were just there for the beer but the pizza looked good.
The problem with this place is that they do not discount six packs. Whatever price is on the bottles, you just add them up so it is very pricey. They claim it is illegal for places to discount their six packs in PA. So I got 2 12oz Pallet Wreckers for $6 each and a Perpetual IPA from Troeg's for $3. $15 for 3 beers.
Great selection but very pricey!

Its about time I review my local craft bottle shop!
Im a pretty loyal supporter of the Fridge! The building used to be an old garage that has been transformed into the bottle shop. They artwork is all beer centered inside and very cool! they also have an old wood burning stove in the sitting area that is always lit on the chilly days!
The food there is all fresh local ingredients only artisan pizzas. Gotta to give a lot of credit to the kitchen staff they are constantly experimenting and tying to push the limits with the ingredients they have! I enjoy the pizza but do wish the menu had more to offer in the way of choices since its just pizza and soups mainly.
The beer cooler is very impressive. They have a constantly rotating and changing selection of both cold and room temp bottles that you can either try there or get to go. The prices are pretty fair for the selection that is brought in and quality at which it is all served and maintained! they also have 10 taps! they are always rotating and changing as well and are good about including a nitro selection or two as well. They do fill growlers also!
Im a pretty big fan of this place they've got it all and great and friendly service on top of it!! Stop in and enjoy!

The outside of the building isn't too impressive; grey, dark, and kind of boring with a logo on the side. Once inside though, the place is very modern with tables, pictures of bottles and bottle caps, a line of bottle fridges, and a few shelves.
Each time the server behind the bar has greeted me upon entering. They have been very friendly.
The food selection has grown a bit. They used to offer just pizza, but they are now up to soup and whatnot. The pizza is thin, hand-tossed and uses fresh, local ingredients. I sampled to slices on one of my visits and they were delicious. I had a sausage, peppers, and onions pizza and I forget what the other slice was.
They have six beers on tap and they change often. I've seen Smuttynose, Founders, Sixpoint, Stone, Bell's, Ballast Point, St. Boniface, among others. The bottle selection is pretty extensive, but it ranks up there with other bottle shops. They offer discounts with a certain number of bottle purchases, but regular prices are a bit steep. The bottle selection consists of Laguanitas, Lost Abby, Rogue, Stone, Ballast Point, among locals. The cool thing is that they have one cooler dedicated to just cans!
I've been here twice now and it's the perfect stop between Iron Hill and Spring House Taproom. The selection is very nice, albeit pricey and the food is very good. I will be back for both!
