All our beer is hand crafted on premise in our 7 barrel brewhouse with a wide range of styles to please any palate. We also offer a two page food menu featuring our in-house smoked brisket and pulled pork, as well as burgers, wings and hand made pizzas. We can't wait to see you!
Mark Garber is a life long resident of Lancaster county where he grew up working on his family's dairy farm. His love for craft beer got him started in homebrewing nearly 20 years ago and it quickly turned into a passionate hobby. In 2009 he had the opportunity to turn his hobby into a business by opening Lancaster Homebrew, which has steadily grown over the past 12 years. He has enjoyed seeing the growth of Lancaster's homebrewing community, including several of his customers opening their own commercial breweries!
In the winter of 2018, the plans for a brewery began. After several years of work and the help of his childhood friend, Dean Kroesen, the dream became a reality with the opening of Big Dog Craft Brewing in the winter of 2020
