One State College beer brewery has found a niche in the Central Pennsylvania beverage market and plans to expand this summer, despite the slow recovery from the national recession.
Otto’s Pub and Brewery plans to increase the distribution of its brews throughout Central Pennsylvania with the increased capacity of a new location, co-owner Roger Garthwaite wrote in an e-mail.
Otto’s is also looking forward to having more space for diners to eat.
As of late, the restaurant had
to encourage customers to carpool for lack of space in its cramped 2105 N. Atherton St. parking lot.
“Due to how small our restaurant is, we’ve outgrown the building we’re currently in,”
General Manager Sarah Sherry said.
Otto’s will replace Quaker Steak and Lube, 2200 N. Atherton St.
The new location will add about 100 seats to the pub and is located just north of Otto’s current location, Sherry said.
