About JOHN RUSSELL BREWING co.
The Art of Brewing
John Russell Brewing Company was established in May 2020 in Erie, PA.
Driven by the love of craft beer, the art of brewing is a part of the U Pick 6 family! We expanded & transformed the original U Pick 6 Beer Store into the John Russell Brewing Company Brew House & Restaurant! Our craft beer culture creates a love for new beer styles, new seasonals, exclusive beer releases & your classic favorites. Our craft beer-inspired menu compliments our tap selections and features like our wood-fired brick oven & our open-view brewing environment makes for a unique experience!
Our beer portfolio is featured & rotates on tap at all 6 of our locations including John Russell Brewing Co., U Pick 6 Tap House, U Pick 6 Harbor House, U Pick 6 Public House, Pier 6 Rooftop Bar & Restaurant & Bay House Oyster Bar & Restaurant.
