Tattered Flag Brewery and Still Works in Middletown, PA

Tattered Flag Brewery and Still Works is a labor of love created by Navy veteran Pat Devlin and his high school friends Matt Fritz, Tony DeLellis, and Ben Ramsay. According to Tony, the Chief Operations Officer, Pat came home one day from the Navy and told his friends he wanted to open a brewery, and they all jumped on board. 

But they didn’t want to just brew beer, they wanted to distill hand crafted spirits and serve really good food in a family friendly place. And they succeeded in Tattered Flag Brewery and Still Works.

They hired Tony Schneider and Dave Morrow as brewmasters, both of which started off as homebrewers.  Tony went on to brew professionally at Appalachian Brewing Company and Battlefield Brew Works, while Dave became one of the most well known  and influential homebrewers in the area. Both are responsible for outstanding brews such as Knife Fight in a Phone Booth IPA, Blue Raider Kolsch, and War Bonds Breakfast Stout.

Pat became the head distiller, and is responsible for producing a variety of spirits such as vodka, gin, white rum, a blue agave spirit, and a single-malt whiskey. 

The brewpub is located in a hundred year old building that was most recently known as the Elks building in the first block of South Union Street. They offer open seating so you can sit where ever you would like, or choose one of their carefully crafted beverages and  just wander around the century old building. They also have three private party rooms available for special events.

They also have a full kitchen and offer a wide variety of foods such as classic pub fare such as fish and chips, wings, sandwiches, burgers, soups, and salads, but also offers dinner items like salmon, strip steak, and ribs.

Ever thought about brewing your own beer? Tattered Flag can help you with that. They offer a Brew Your Own program in which they help you design and brew your own beer using their equipment! It takes between 4 and 6 hours to create and brew your beer, then after a 2 to 4 week wait (depending on the beer), your beer is ready for your release party! You get to take home a sixtel of your beer (1/6th of a barrel or 5 Gal) and your beer will be featured for sale in the brewpub! You even have the option of having them creating artwork, cans, and bottles for your beer!

So to recap, Tattered Flag has amazing hand crafted beers and spirits, good food, offers Brew-Your-Own-Beer sessions, and private party rooms available for special events in a fully renovated turn of the century building.
