John Russell Brewing Co.
Peach Street

Welcome to the Brew House

John Russell Brewing Company | Erie, Pennsylvania

Meet the New Addition to our U Pick 6 Family!

The Idea.

The owners of U Pick 6 Pubs & Restaurants decided to start brewing! With our love of craft beer, the art of brewing has become a part of our U Pick 6 family! The brewery was built in our original beer store location, which opened in 2009. We will feature a  new wood-fired brick oven & a similar menu as our other locations! The transformation is complete! Welcome John Russell Brewing Company Brew House & Restaurant to our family of pubs!

Where We are Now.

John Russell Brewing began brewing in May of 2020 at our location. Our Brew Pub is now open featuring 24 craft beers on tap & a full menu. We also exclusively feature our beers on tap at our U Pick 6 Pub locations, Tap House, Harbor House & Public House in Erie, PA.

We just completely built & expanded our New Outdoor Patio with Outdoor Bar Seating! Come enjoy a bite to eat & a pint on the patio!

The owners of U Pick 6 Pubs & Restaurants decided to start brewing! With their love of craft beer, the art of brewing has now become a part of our U Pick 6 family! John Russell Brewing Company is located on Upper Peach Street & I-90, adjacent to our original beer store location, which opened in 2009, which was expanded & transformed into John Russell Brewing Company Brew House & Restaurant!

How did John Russell Brewing Company get its name? John & Russ have poured their labor & pride into the craft beer community. It only makes sense to pour a beer with their names on it.
