Nothing fancy in the subterranean treasure "directly over the center of the earth." But when you want to cozy up with a friend over a drink, go down and see Dave Staab, who commands the bar like a Viking longship.More

Zeno's has a long history of providing a great selection of beers, and putting some uncommon brews on tap. They had a "beer passport" at one time (I lost mine over the years), with a list of round-the-world beers to do, which they'll stamp as...More

If you love beer, this place has many to try. If you want a place that isn't filled with just 21 year olds, this place is great. If you get claustrophobic, try somewhere else. You can dress up or dress down and fit in. Friendly...More

This is the first bar that I always return to when visiting Penn State. The beer selection is the best in town, with a large number of local craft beers on tap. The bar is in a cellar, which means going downstairs to the basement....More

There are plenty of bars in State COllege. Zenos is not worth your time. The staff act like you are doing them a favor by showing up. They treat you like dirt. Give your business to any other bar.
