    Breaker Brewing Outpost in Archbald is a satellite location of Breaker Brewing Company that opened right before the early days of COVID-19 hit. They stayed strong and continue to thrive to this day by offering a good variety of craft beers and food. The Outpost location is a wide-open space with a very large square bar and lots of sit-down tables. They also offer outdoor seating if you visit in the warmer months. From my experience, it doesn’t seem like the waitresses have “sections” like you typically see at a restaurant as multiple people will check up on you throughout your visit. With that strategy, service is pretty fast. We were in and out in about 45 minutes. There are none of your typical bar items like pool tables or darts, but Breaker Outpost usually has an event going on like live music or some sort of activity, so keep an eye on their Facebook. For example, we arrived early enough to enjoy their happy hour, which occurs on most days from 4 to 6. If we stayed later, we could have taken part in bingo. As you can probably guess from the location name, Breaker brews their own craft beer, with a large menu of options that will be sure to provide you a beverage you would be interested in trying.

    Breaker Outpost usually sells their wings for $14 for 12, but offers a discounted price of $9.99 for 12 wings  on their Wednesday wing night. Plus, they have no issue allowing you to split orders into two different sauces if you wanted to try more sauces. The wings are above average in size and you’ll leave plenty full if you order your usual number.

    Just like their beer options, Breaker Outpost offers a large, eclectic variety of wing flavors.You have plenty options of wet sauces and dry rubs as well. They also feature many of your usual suspects like Hot, Hot Honey, Barbecue, and Old Bay Dry rub as well as more unique flavors like Boom Boom sauce, Middleswarth Bar-b-q, and Chili Like Dry rub. Whether you want to color within the lines or think more outside the box, you’re bound to find a flavor that excites you.

    Serniak and I split three orders into 6 different sauces. In order to not overlap review, we claimed our review sauces, with mine being Hot, Boom Boom, and Garlic Dill Ranch. The Hot sauce was a red sauce that seemed to be more tomato based. They weren’t super spicy and actually had a slight sweetness to them. I’d be curious to try these next to the Alt-Buff as I feel the Alt-Buff would offer more what I look for in a hot sauce. The Boom Boom sauce was a creamy, orange sauce similar to what you’d expect when you try, well, boom boom sauce. I’m a sucker for this sauce from Sheetz, and while this was similar and tasty, I was hoping for a bit more spice in my wing. The Garlic Dill Ranch was a white sauce with plenty of dill seasoning added. Personally, I would have preferred a stronger ranch flavor along with a more pickle, vinegar-like flavor, but these were still pretty good. Overall, the wings did not have a ton of crisp, so you may want to ask for extra crispy, although I can’t promise that’s a request they’d accommodate.

    Breaker Brewery Outpost is located in Eynon or Sturgis to the locals is a secondary location to their main location which is in Wilkes Barre. Formerly the Wildcat, Breaker Brewery has planted a flag as the only place of its kind in that area.

    It’s a very large place with multiple levels to dine and drink at. If you were to say that there is a lotta wood at Breaker Brewery Outpost you would be correct. It’s the kind of place that makes Smokey the Bear nervous. But some say it’s the wood that makes it good. Most don’t however,

    Our server was very diligent in making sure we didn’t go thirsty and helped us out by explaining how their wing setup works and what some of their wing flavors are.

    In fact, we were only there for about 45-50 minutes. I love when that happens. Not that I don’t mind hanging out in a place but I’m a man that loves efficiency.

    If you’re looking to play pool or catch a game of any kind or even watch the Wheel, don’t expect that here. There are no TVs or games of any kind. Just good old drinking some high-quality suds and eating at Breaker Brewery Outpost. I’m good with that.

    Wednesday night is wing night at Breaker Brewery Outpost. On wing night, wings are $9.99 a dozen. That’s roughly 83 cents a wing. I think in today’s economy that’s pretty good.

    You’re also able to split that dozen into an order of 6 so that you can enjoy more flavors. I suggest doing that.

    The size of the wings are rather good as well. The MPB, which is meat per bite, is strong with these wings. You can get your regular order amount and be fine.

    Like Dr. Pepper, Breaker Brewery Outpost has 23 unique flavors for its wings. I realize now that analogy might not land exactly the way I thought it would in my head but we’re leaving it.

    It’s nice to see a place that obviously cares most about its beer also cares about wing flavors. That’s progress in this world.

    You can get all the standard ones that you can pretty much everywhere else but you also can get such flavors as rum and coke BBQ, garlic dill ranch, jerk ranch, chili lime dry rub, Tex-Mex dry rub, Middlesworth BBQ, and boom boom sauce.

    What I love here is the utilization of ranch. It’s so applicable. Ranch to the wing world is like duct tape to the Red Green Show. It solves everything.

    Wing Taste (x2): 8

    The 3 flavors that I got were garlic butter and herbs, Tex-Mex dry rub, and jerk ranch. The crispiness level is above average but I think there’s room for even more crispiness.

    Starting with the garlic butter and herb wings, I thought there could have been more butter and herbs. I love this flavor of wings but I’m a guy that wants to see a Gardens of Versailles amount of greens on my wing. Those greens, whatever ones that are there, really punch up the overall flavor.

    Next, I had the Tex-Mex dry rub and man alive was this one good. I wasn’t even expecting it to be anything too good but I was wrong. What was great was that there was no skimping on the seasoning. Every centimeter was caked with flavor, which is the way it should be. That flavoring was some kind of cajun/southwestern-style seasoning. I can’t tell you exactly what seasonings were in there but you probably can guess.

    Finally, I had the jerk ranch. These were the best I had on this occasion. Jerk seasoning, which I feel is a bit on the rise so buy stock in it if you can, was distributed well throughout the wing. The combination of spice and sweetness is a wonderful thing. But then you add ranch and man alive did that bring the entire flavor home. The salty savoriness of the ranch was a perfect dance partner with the Jer seasoning. I highly recommend you get this one.
