Beer Lovers, Rejoice!
Backyard Ale House is downtown Scranton’s premier craft beer bar and restaurant, serving hand-crafted American pub fare and featuring live music from some of your favorite local artists.
Situated across the street from Courthouse Square, this city favorite has become Scranton’s go-to spot for fun, great food and live music.
Backyard Ale House advertises in-house catering for groups who are looking for a laid-back atmosphere that is great for mingling.
To start, try ordering their Backyard Chili with ground and diced beef, hot sausage deglazed with Downtown Brown Ale, peppers, spices and tomatoes and served with grated cheddar cheese and sour cream. The pulled pork sandwich paired with house-cut seasoned chips is another grand slam option.
In the mood for something lighter? The Patio Salad is a winner with mixed greens, sliced apples, grapes, dried cranberries, toasted walnuts and crumbled bleu cheese served with sweet apple vinaigrette.
Truly a beer lover’s dream, Backyard Ale House features over 500 bottles and 28 rotating drafts of some of the finest beers in the world. Swing by for their daily Happy Hour weekdays from 5-7. Late Night Happy Hour keeps the party going on Monday, Thursday, and Friday from 9-11.
Visit for Saturday and Sunday’s Backyard Bloody + Beer Brunch. Other weekly specials include Burgers & Buckets every Monday and Flights & Bites every Tuesday.
