Another of our favorite breweries in Williamsport is Boom City Brewing Company. They offer a range of micro-brewed beers, including their own series of signature beers. At least five of their beers are available on tap at any time, so you’ll have no trouble finding an option to suit your needs. When visiting here, we highly recommend you stay to eat as well. They are well-known in the local area for their signature steaks, which are covered with their house rub and then fire-grilled. That being said, they all offer some great options for vegetarians or those looking for a lighter meal to enjoy with their local beer. If you don’t know what to go for when it comes to a beer here, try one of their flights which will allow you to sample a variety of their brews.
