Full Bar including craft beer, imported beer, fine wines and premium liquor
In 1994 Jeff and JoAnne Goss opened an English Pub in Carlisle, PA with the idea that everyone from all walks of life could gather for a pint to celebrate and commiserate. When researching Carlisle, PA they realized that it is the sister city of Carlisle, England. At the center of Carlisle, England is Market Cross square with that realization Market Cross Pub was born. We opened our doors on April 1, 1994 as one of the first restaurants in the area to offer imports and craft beer. We felt that a brewery would complement our English Pub perfectly, so in 1999 we expanded the property to include a garage brewery in the back. Our brewery then opened under the name Market Cross Brewery in 2002, with our brewmaster Kevin Spicer. He has been hard at work crafting delicious English ales and lagers true to their style ever since. Our brewery features a Peter Austin System that was brought overseas from England. We brew 10 barrel batches (310 gallons) of unfiltered, all natural beers ranging in roughly 10 – 15 styles throughout the year. Some of our most popular are Olde Yeller IPA, English Red Ale and the always sought after Excalibur Imperial Stout. You will have to come to us to enjoy these tasty brews, as Market Cross Brewery does not distribute outside of the Pub.
In 2015, Jeff and JoAnne’s daughter, Ashleigh, took part ownership in the business to ensure the Pub family could continue on for another generation. In 2016, our Pub Momma JoAnne passed on and now Ashleigh and Jeff will carry on her pub love for many years to come.
Since Ashleigh has taken ownership we have expanded our bar to include fine wines and premium liquor in addition to the area’s best craft beer and imports. We have also expanded our outside seating area to include our cozy Beer Garden next to the brewery, and we have increased our outside catering business so we can bring Market Cross Pub & Brewery to your next special event. We have many more ideas to come and we look forward to creating more memories and showing our pub love to all of our wonderful customers.
