Bullfrog Brewery is an award-winning, independent craft microbrewery, brewpub, eatery, and live music venue nestled comfortably in the vibrant heart of downtown Williamsport ... a city that is, itself, the cultural heart of scenic Northcentral Pennsylvania. Born of fortuitous circumstance and ambitious aspiration, we opened in August of 1996 with a committed 'focal on local' philosophy and a simple yet lofty goal ... to be the place that people need to spend time, to brew beers that people need to have in their life, to offer food that people need to eat, to offer live music that people need to hear, and to be the kind of establishment that our beloved staff need to work.

We strive daily to make a positive impression on the world while limiting our footprint on it, and we invite you to join us and help in the process by simply enjoying yourself here (or drinking our beers from afar). From the start, we chose our community-minded and farm-to-table approaches in what we serve you from both our taps and our kitchen because it truly matters to us. With each visit, you aren't merely supporting us ... you're supporting a community of locally-owned and operated, sustainably-run, environmentally and socially conscious businesses. Where and what you drink and eat really does make a world of difference ... and makes a difference in our world.

Here at 'The Frog,' as we're often and affectionately referred to ... once you spend some time with us, we'd like to think that we'll become your favorite place to be, if not your home-away-from-home. Hop on in and celebrate life with great beer, food, music, and friends here at our 'pad!'


We are dedicated to artfully and lovingly crafting the finest ales, lagers, and specialty beers imaginable, and we feature a continually rotating menu of staple, seasonal, and distinct craft brews ... blending old-world craftsmanship with a distinctly modern palette of flavors and ingredients, and at every opportunity endeavor to make use of local hops, berries, herbs, fruits, frogs (kidding!), or locally roasted, estate-grown coffees from our great friends at Alabaster Coffee Roaster & Tea Company of downtown Williamsport.

Over the years, we have brewed and served up almost every style of beer cataloged, and even a few that aren't (well over 500 and counting). We have always had a penchant for showcasing 'Belgish' (Belgian-style) ales that, in our humble opinion, offer the drinker the most exciting and adventurous taste experience the world of beer has to offer. We are perhaps best known around the planet for our so-called 'sour beers' (as oft referred to) ... Belgian, Flemish/Flanders-style or Gueuze-inspired, barrel-aged (some tank-aged) American wild ales such as Le Roar Grrrz, Rood Bruin, Old Gold, or Jong Bruin ... as well as our tantalizingly tart, fruited farmhouse wheat or our quenching, tastebud-tickling, and champagne-esque Funny Farmhouse fermented cider. But, we by no means limit ourselves to those brewing traditions alone, as we always enjoy having fun with our frothy offerings to you. Because ... well ... beer is fun!

Our noteworthy beers have won many prestigious awards and accolades, including Gold & Bronze medals at the Great American Beer Festival and Gold & Silver medals at the World Beer Cup. Bullfrog Brewery has twice been honored by, ranking us among the Top 100 Brewers In The World for 2016 and 2018 (from among over 22,000 brewers worldwide), as well as also garnering 7 of the Top 25 Beers Brewed In Pennsylvania.

While some of you may have to travel a bit to get here, the ingredients in your meal don't. Our beef is procured from Misty Mountain Farm in close-by Trout Run, PA. Their sustainably-run practices yield the most flavorful beef imaginable for our burgers, steaks, and brisket. Hogs sourced from Beaver Run Farm of nearby Turbotville allow us to produce the most savory sausages and kielbasa in-house, as well as providing us our bacon, ham, and pork. We endeavor to feature the area's freshest organic vegetables at every opportunity as well, procuring local produce and mushrooms from Tewksbury Grace Farm of Muncy, and delectable mixed greens from Beech Grove Farm of Trout Run that are included in every salad we create for you. Our salmon comes to us from locally-based Wild For Salmon, caught fresh in Alaska and flown in overnight! Even our buns and rolls come from Lycoming Bakery of Williamsport and our pretzel buns come to us from David's Awesome Pretzels of Mifflinburg.

We are the definition of 'casual,' very family-friendly, and there’s never a need to hurry here. Our hosts, servers, and bartenders are laid-back, ever-cheerful, and ready to help make your experience at the Bullfrog a memorable one.
