Parking friendly two minutes drive outside the city. Nice friendly little brewery with a large room that is both a gift shop and a tasting room. Like it is the case with all NY state brewery that have a tasting room (and not a full licensed pub) you cannot buy samples. They give you free samples of whatever they have on tap. When I was there they had close to 10 beers on tap for free sampling. Unfortunately very few of their higher end 750ml bottles seem to be available on tap. They don’t seem to keep “special” bottles behind the counter for visitors. What’s there to buy is what is currently sold. I was lucky to find the Brute there but only because I happened to be there while it was being distributed. The staff was particularly friendly. I bought many bottles, glasses and bottles openers. Affordable prices but not cheaper than a good deal at a beer store. Overall this is a pleasant tasting and buying experience and you just cannot be in the neighbourhood without paying this brewery a visit.

Split with a homebrew shop with some very friendly staff members. Excellent beers though I wish they would use separate sample glasses or rinse the glass between beers. A bit outside of town

Not a huge amount to see here. It’s basically a shop front for the brewery, selling Ithaca beers, merchandise and some home brew supplies. The people were friendly and knowledgeable. There’s a fair chance of someone connected with the brewing being around (rather than just sales staff) and getting a look round. Free samples from tap. Bought a couple of bottles even though there was nothing new there for me. Definitely worth a look in if you are in town.

Stopped in here to get some Brute, only to discover that they were out. Friendly though is leading me to places that still might have it or the IPAbbey. Nice selection of homebrew materials and swag, otherwise. Bought a very nice tulip glass.

Drove up for the Le Bleu release and made it into a little overnight trip. We rolled up to the brewery at 10am, right behind the guy who runs the tap room. A few minutes later once another couple cars had arrived he invited us all in side. That quick hospitality and welcoming attitude really defines what Ithaca seems to be about. A few beers were shared amongst everyone there and the taps flowed for samples as well. The place has a very chill laid back local sort of feel, and there were definitely locals showing up just for growler fills who seemed to be a bit surprised at the growing crowd. I like that they have homebrew supplies as well, very much the sort of thing that shows that they support their locals and their locals support them. Wish it was a bit closer, but I’ll be back.

Free samples of what’s currently being offered (which now includes Cascazilla year ’round!), and they offer homebrew supplies as well. Very helpful person working the counter.

A nice brewpub with a beautiful setting on a farm outside Ithaca. A great place to sample their beers, and they often have a lot of specials and one-offs on tap through their 5-barrel series. Service was super friendly. Beautiful patio.

Small brewery. A few taps and bottles for sale. A bit disorganized at the release I went to. People walked out with entire cases of beer while dozens got shut out with nothing.
