Join the Fourscore Team!

Fourscore Beer Co. is a family owned Brew Pub located in the historic city of Gettysburg, PA at 603 S. Washington Street. We are nestled just outside of the battlefield and are proud to be serving our local community and touring guests since August 2019. The brewpub features beer for onsite consumption in multiple sized offerings, as well as beer to go in cans and crowlers. A food menu that includes appetizers, salads and sandwiches is offered with many beer inspired menu items. The premise of our brand is to develop beers that defy the current brewing convention while embracing historic styles and techniques. Their uniqueness will emphasize original recipes that focus on flavor over style definition. We don’t abide by established style guidelines and refuse to conform to pre-conceived notions. We marry traditional brewing techniques while embracing creativity and experimentation. We take an innovative approach to ingredients, harnessing raw inspiration from our surroundings to create unique beer experiences. Fourscore will always strive to be the hub of our community, similarly to pubs of old. We want to be a social center for Gettysburg residents and visitors alike.

Assistant Brewer (Full-Time)

Fourscore Beer Co. currently has a 7BBL brew house with 8 fermenter tanks, 3 fermenting foeders and 8 brite/serving tanks, as well as a single head canning line. We average 14 beers on tap and often have fun one-offs and frozen versions. It’s a fun way to create buzz, hype and continued interest. All beer is sold in full pours, short pours, samplers, crowlers and 4 packs/cases. We do rarely let beer into distribution, but when we have, it’s been received very well.

Fourscore has built a loyal following through our combination of great beer, excellent food and outstanding customer service.
