Erie Ale Works is the definition of a homegrown operation. The fact that the brewers are your bartenders should say it all. These former homebrewers are churning out some extremely tasty brews, and they're doing so with a sense of humor. They describe their blonde ale, Tattooed Lady, as “beer-flavored beer.” And, they even pull in guest taps from other breweries they admire.
