20 May New Oberpfalz Brewing of Griffith Opens Patio
GRIFFITH | People enjoy the outdoors in plenty of ways in Griffith: biking on the Erie Lackawanna Trail, shooting hoops downtown, clambering up the World War II tank in Central Park, attending one of the many festivals, or fishing while the sun sets on the lake at Oak Ridge Prairie.

One of the town’s three new craft breweries has added a patio, and a second one will soon.
New Oberpfalz Brewing, the Bavarian-themed craft brewery at 121 E. Main Street, has greatly expanded its capacity by adding outdoor seating. Wildrose Brewing at 1104 E. Main Street also soon hopes to add enough al fresco tables to seat 20 to 30 more customers at any given time.
