Tattered flag brewery & Still works

Named 2019 Simply the Best Brewery and 2018/2019 Simply the Best Distillery by Harrisburg Magazine!



A tattered flag is not just a worn piece of cloth…it has experience and character. Threadbare and frayed, it still represents the ideals and beliefs of those who stand behind it - constantly seeking excellence and the achievement of goals with honor. At Tattered Flag, we live by this.

We specialize in hand-crafted, house made, award winning beer and spirits that we serve alongside our diverse brew pub and gourmet coffee menus. Our historic building and friendly and knowledgeable staff offer a unique and welcoming environment for any occasion.

We invite you to come #raiseaflag with us!

The Brew house

Named the 2019 Harrisburg Magazine’s Simply the Best for Local Brewery/Brew Pub, we proudly create award winning brews in our unique, state of the art, 10 barrel brew house made in the USA by Alpha Brewing Operations. The design of our building allows you to look in on production in real time.

the word is out

What started as a dream in the mountains of Afghanistan has now become a brand recognized around the region for quality and innovation. Currently available in Pennsylvania only, we self-distribute to most areas. Lamb Beverage, however, distributes to the Eastern PA and State College regions.

cutting edge

Our brewers take their craft seriously…and that includes heavy market research. While classic styles matter, we have traveled the globe in an effort to stay up with current trends in the marketplace. This research has led to a special passion for New England Style IPA’s and an ever-expanding Sours Program. That said, one look at our tap list shows a commitment to variety, meaning anyone can find a brew to please their palate.


World class spirits in the heart of Central Pennsylvania.

We offer a diverse and seasonal food and beverage menus.

Our in house gourmet coffee shop, The Nuclear Bean (see below for more info), features everything you’ve come to expect from a modern coffee house.

Located inside Tattered Flag, we decided to open The Nuclear Bean, because of Middletown’s proximity to Penn State’s Harrisburg Campus (we proudly accept Lion Cash!), Harrisburg International Airport, and Amtrak’s Middletown Station. The Nuclear Bean is open Monday to Saturday from 7 am to 9 pm and Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm.

We offer everything you’ve come to expect from a modern coffee shop in a college town. This includes comfortable tables, chairs, and couches, free high speed internet, small breakfast items, and amazing coffee sourced locally from My Coffee Guru in York, PA. As a veteran owned and operated company, we also proudly retail Black Rifle Coffee.

The Nuclear Bean is unique in that you can still get Tattered Flag’s hand crafted beer and spirits right in the shop. The bar features 12 taps (10 for beer, one for nitro cold brew coffee, and one for house made kombucha). The full Tattered Flag Brew Pub Menu is also available starting at 11 am. So, you truly get the best of everything we have to offer when you visit The Nuclear Bean!
