We’re thrilled to congratulate our friends, Alter Ego Brewing Co., who were approved unanimously by the City of Harrisburg’s Zoning Board last night, to open and operate an artisanal, small batch brewery in the rear of Midtown Cinema.

Husband and wife team, Theo and Brandalynn Armstrong, utilized crowdfunding source, Indiegogo, early last year to help get their dream off the ground.

Not long ago they revealed their plans to open the brewery behind Midtown Cinema, which has served as an occasional host for the couple to sample and preview their brews to cinema-goers.

If all goes as planned, including renovations and acquiring the necessary brewpub license, Alter Ego Brewing Co. aims to open to the public this fall. They plan to offer their own beers, brewed on-site, along with select Pennsylvania wines, and a limited tasting menu featuring small plates and snacks.
