A: The atmosphere of the place is decent, somewhat rustic look but not dumpy. The place has a feel more of a gastropub than your typical bar atmosphere.
Q: The beers on tap are mostly decent, nothing that will bore you or disappoint, especially after hitting the slopes.
S: The service in EBC was decent, they didnt cater to my every need but didnt ignore either. On this day, the ski slopes have only been open for two days and it is raining outside, so the place was slow.
S: The selection is really good, they had 15 different in house beers on tap and a wide array of styles from their Pale, Winter White, Rye PA, Black IPA, Belgian Abbey, 2 Cuvee Styles, Nut Brown, Imperial IPA, Stout, Blueberry, Chocolate Cherry Stout, etc.
I did not try any food this time.
The value is decent as two pints cost me 10 bucks for two seasonals.
Ellicottville is a small ski resort town with 2 ski resorts, located about an hour south of Buffalo

Not a bad place to grab some food at and a beer. Their beer offerings to me are a bit hit and miss.

Located right next to Holiday Valley Ski Resort, this place obviously gets pretty bumping during the winter. I stopped by after a hike right at the beginning of the ski season, so it was predictably busy. However, an hour wait for a table is not a big deal when you can saddle up to the bar and warm up while having a beer or two. Plus, everyone is there on vacation so the vibe is very friendly and upbeat. There were maybe 10 or 12 of the house brewed beers on tap, ranging from the typical Blueberry and Pale Ale, to a barrel aged imperial stout, to a Belgian Strong aged in Cabernet barrels (which was phenomenal). Two flights are available, the "regular" one and the "imperial" one. Both come with 5 or 6 beers, I think the regular one was $10 and the imperial maybe 14 or so. Great food, good portions, priced typically for the area. Obviously a bit out of the way for most, but if youíre in the area itís certainly worth stopping in.

Located in the small village of Ellicottville right near a bunch of other shops, bars, and restaurants. Medium sized brewpub with a long nice bar. Food is pretty solid, shepards pie is great! Beers are all pretty solid, Pantis Dropius is a standout DIPA. Employees were all nice locals. This place gets pretty busy especially during ski season. Overall just a good brewpub to check out in Ellicottville, wheres there not much else to offer as far as beer goes.

Not really impressed by any of their beers. Some because of quality others because of personal preference. They make to many gimmick beers. Constantly changing seasonal selection. Overall not to bad its just not for me.

This was a pretty nice brewpub. They had seven beers on tap and a few bottled beers for sell. The food was good. The brewer and manager were pretty chatty. Worth the stop if in the area.

Great little brew pub in this small ski town south of Buffalo. Food is usually very good but really pricy. 2 Brothers is a greatpale. Blueberry is OK but Pantius Dropius DIPA is also well made. Check it out if in the area

One of the best brewpubs Iíve been to. Good, smooth beers, no vinegar aftertaste. The special ale is a 10 point ale, smmoth, not strong on the palate, with a wonderful taste.Donít forget to check out the beer garden!
Food is outstanding! If you like shepards pie, you need to eat this one. Flaky crust and uses veal, not hamburger.
