JoBoy's Brew Pub is honored to serve you their southern style barbeque and hand crafted beer. Starting as a modest barbeque competition team, this restaurant has truly been a labor of love for owners Jeff and Jo Harless.
Quite often, they are asked where the name came from, and how they came up with their "stick figure" logo.
First the name... Owners Jeffrey Boy Harless from North Carolina, and Maria Jo Harless from New Holland Pa, met, married, and became "JoBoy's"; using their middle names for their competition barbeque team and for the inspiration of their eventual brew pub.
The logo came from the notes Jeff left for Jo when they were courting. Jeff, being the sophisticated gentleman that he is, always included a few stick figures to better illustrate his love for Jo. When thinking of how best to represent their dream, the idea came quickly. Look around the restaurant and you're likely to find a few examples of Jeff's work!
Jeff and Jo are passionate about bringing you the finest food and drinks, while also spreading the notion of Southern charm and hospitality. You'll likely to find them and their family out getting to know their customers, sharing their barbeque and brewing techniques, and seeking feedback.
