Harvest Ale is our celebration of the changing weather and the sowing of hops and barley that will be used in our upcoming brews. We usher in the fall with a classic English style Extra Special Bitter of the highest order. Deep ruby in color with an even deeper hop flavor… in fact, we throw fresh English hops into every brewing vessel, then dry hop after fermentation to impart a zesty kick. This beer has real hop character that mingles with fresh malted barley for an experience that will make you wish it were fall year ‘round.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2003 Clear golden orange color with a nice white head, great lacing down the glass. The tiny bubbles in the glass are truly amazing. Floral / citrusy hops in the nose. Sweet malts, flowers, citrus, and pine on the tongue. My favorite Pale Ale. Man, Southern Tier is making some of the best beers in Western NY. I'm glad this brewery is here

Botte. Pours a clear orange color with a thin tan head. Strong, malty aroma with a light hop presence. Caramel malt in the flavor. Light, dry hoppy notes. Pretty solid brew. Southern Tier never disappoints.
