Sports & Brews

We love the combination of craft beers, good food, and sports, but we also like to throw a little history in the mix to make it even more unique to Lackawanna County.

Brunch is always the perfect way to start your sports day. With over 500 bottles and 28 rotating drafts, Backyard Ale House offers not only endless craft beer selections but also comfort food such as Pot Roast Hash and Kielbasa omelets. 

After your fix of Bloody Marys and Mimosas, head over to the Electric City Trolley Museum for a look at the new John Oliver train display and the incredible trolley history of Scranton.

Book your trolley ticket for an excursion to PNC Field for a day game with the Scranton/Wilkes- Barre Railriders, the AAA affiliate of the New York Yankees. If you’re still hungry, PNC Field has a wide selection of culinary options including Revello’s Pizza, an Old Forge Style Pizza famous in the area. 

Added bonus: Take a tour of PNC Field before the game to learn how the field is maintained. You can also get a behind the scenes look at how the game functions. 

Recommendation for the game: Bring a blanket and get a lawn ticket – the bar is close by, too! Don’t worry, the trolley will provide you with transportation back to Scranton after the game.
