Doolittle’s complex along Rich Valley Highway, the artisanal nano-brewery, is unique in several ways.

First, it’s taproom is located in a 1920-1930s era baggage car and 1922-1926 boxcar. The brewery is in a 1960-1970s era boxcar with a 1944 transfer caboose for storage. Then, there’s also a 1910-1920s era caboose for private service, as well as a large outdoor seating area.

Aside from being what the owner Rice touts as "the nicest bar in a rail car in Pennsylvania," its 20 taps will allow other homebrewers to experiment on a larger scale.

Thus its slogan — "brewed by friends."

"I thought, there’s tons of people like me, who are brewing in their basements or are working at brewies and don’t get to be the lead person or don’t get to brew their own recipes because they’re brewing someone else’s."

Five of the taps will pour recipes like an Irish stout, "just another IPA," an American amber ale, Imperial cream ale, and chocolate stout.

Five other taps will be from larger microbreweries that they have ties too.

There will also be house made ginger ale and rootbeer, a nitro tap pouring cold pressed coffee, as well as a cider and a meade.

As for the other five taps, they’ll be fore the collaborations —the first being a blueberry wheat shandy brewed by Andy Schlimm of St. Marys.

"We are built like a modern art studio to support and encourage brewers," Frampton said. "It’s about having fun and enjoying craft beer. It’s about partnerships and friendships."
