Zeno’s Celebrates 40th Anniversary

In a town known for its many drinking establishments, how does one stand the test of time? Well, I don’t know the answer to that, but maybe you should ask Dave Staab, the General Manager of Zeno’s Pub. As one of State College’s oldest and most historic bars, Zeno’s is celebrating its 40th anniversary this Saturday and everyone (over 21) is invited to the party.

Established in 1972, Zeno’s has been known for its extensive collection of imported and domestic bottles and drafts as the best beer spot in State College. Located on the corner of College Ave and Allen St — or according to their motto, “directly above the center of the earth” — it is one of the biggest hotspots for students looking to get a buzz on while preparing for an exam, or just to get shitfaced and listen to some great local music. They were recently recognized as one of the Best College Beer Bars in America.

Zeno’s has a lot planned for the big event on Saturday. They’ll be cracking open rare and vintage kegs and cases that date back to 2008, as well as offering complimentary snacks and sandwiches, raffles, and all-around shenanigans. There will also be limited edition 40th anniversary Zeno’s shirts and glassware.

The soundtrack to the party will be provided by a host of local musicians. Here’s the full lineup:

3 p.m.: Biscuit Jam with John Cunningham
6 p.m.: Ted McCloskey and the HiFi’s
7:30 p.m.:
Sylvia
8:30 p.m.:
Harold
10:30 p.m.:
Pure Cane Sugar

Zeno’s has been dutifully providing the best beer to the best students in State College for 40 years, so why not give back by buying yet more beer? Hope to catch everyone at Zeno’s this Saturday!
