|Selin's Grove Brewing Co.
Selin’s Grove Brewing Co. opened in 1996
and was fortunate to call home a
beautiful Federal style stone governor’s
This historic building was built in 1816
by Pennsylvania’s third and only three
term governor, Simon Snyder, for whom
our county was named.
The building remains remarkably intact
and is on the National Historic Register.
The Selin’s Grove Brewing Co. is housed
on the ground floor in the governor’s
kitchen, complete with two walk-in
In the late nineteenth century the
building was home to MatildaPierce
Alleman who wrote a famous book about
her experience as a girl during the civil
war, Gettysburg; What a girl saw and
heard of the battle.
Grave and Momument
Visit Gov. Snyder just off South Market
Street on West Bough, behind Sharon
Lutheran Church. His monument stands
tall over the cemetery as he gazes into
the distance. His portrait bust and the
low relief panels were made in Paris in
1884, long after the Governor's death in
1819. George E. Bissell, sculptor, worked
from engravings of Snyder's likeness and
accounts of his early life as a farmer and
tanner. You'll be glad you took the
time to check it out!
whats with the Dog?
Our logo was designed when we
discovered an historical account of a
distillery & brewery in Selinsgrove in the
1830s that used stray dogs to run in a
wheel thus powering the pumps.

Bring your kayak, hiking boots,
running shoes and bicycle.
There are several resident Bald Eagle in
Selinsgrove and plenty of other critters
to discover on our easy going river with
