Craft Beer Spotlight: Zeno’s Pub
Located directly above the center of the earth at the most iconic street corner in State College (directly underneath the Corner Room, Allen Street Grill, Hotel State College), Zeno’s Pub has been a State College institution since 1972. When it comes to craft beer in the Centre Region, Zeno’s is where it all began.
Manager Dave Staab (seen below) has been involved with Zeno’s or the parent company Hotel State College since 1984 and is the bar’s manager to this very day.
You still can get a Zeno’s Passport and keep track of your beers/countries to this very day.
Countless members of Neshaminy Creek Brewing Co. have ‘cut their teeth’ on craft beer at this bar while attending, or visiting, PSU.
NCBC beers can be found at Zeno’s in either can, draft, and our bombers are a staple at the bar.
Noted beer enthusiast Michael Jackson has been to (end thoroughly enjoyed) Zeno’s. Dave has actually had pints with him.
Zeno’s has also received many awards over the years, including College Bar of the Month by Playboy Magazine,
one of Men’s Health’s Top 20 College Bars in 2012, and countless other honors for the Pub, and Dave Staab, alike.
