John Russell Brewing Company

Talk Beer. Taste Beer. Enjoy Beer.

The Art of Brewing has become a part of our Craft Beer Culture.

The owners of the U Pick 6 Pubs & Restaurants decided to start brewing! Driven by the love of craft beer, the art of brewing has now become a part of the U Pick 6 family! We expanded & transformed the original U Pick 6 Beer Store into the John Russell Brewing Company Brew House & Restaurant! Our craft beer culture creates a love for new beer styles, new seasonals as seasons change & your classic favorites. Our craft beer-inspired menu compliments our tap selections and features like our new wood-fired brick oven & our open-view brewing environment makes for a unique experience!

The owners, John Melody & Russ Stachewicz, have poured their labor and pride into the craft beer community. It only makes sense to pour a beer with their names on it.

Meet the Family.

Bringing People Together With Craft Beer & Craft Beer-Inspired Eats.

Our U Pick 6 Family of Craft Beer Pubs & Restaurants in Erie, PA specializes in a large selection craft beers on tap & in the bottle with Full Menu, Wood-fired Brick Oven & Casual Pub Dining. We feature a constantly rotating tap selection which inspires our flavorful American cuisine! Our wood-fired brick oven bakes our fresh dough, artisan-style pizzas to perfection! Our modern, craft beer-inspired menu features include appetizers, flatbreads, handcrafted sandwiches, fresh specialty salads, housemade favorites, pub burgers, grain bowls & more!

Our first U Pick 6 pub was established in 2009 when the U Pick 6 Beer Store (which will soon become John Russell Brewing Company) opened on Peach Street in Erie, PA. We soon opened more locations including U Pick 6 Tap House, in Downtown Erie, U Pick 6 Public House on the Westside of Erie, 26th & Asbury & U Pick 6 Harbor House in Harborcreek on Buffalo Road.
