Southern Tier Brewing Company is right in my backyard and Iíve been going there from the start when it was across the street and much smaller than it is today. The old pub didnít have food and probably only about 8 beers on tap, but I enjoyed it because the regular staff were great and it wasnít distributed everywhere. Theyíve since branched out and expanded and are much bigger and more recognized. It gets very crowded in the pub during the winter months so I usually sit out back on the covered patio with the heat lamps going. In the summer itís all open in the back and thereís more room to move, but it still gets very packed in. They also have a Stones course to play with your friends and have a few beers so that was a great addition. I was happy with the pulled pork and pub chips, but they have since expanded the food menu to include more options which all go great paired with the different beers. Some of the nacho plates are great and the pricing is reasonable. They also have an excellent selection of beers on tap so that anyone can find something they like as well as different wines for the wine drinkers out there. I will say that one downfall is that it doesnít feel like the friendly small vibe any longer. A couple of the bartenders are obnoxious and too many snobs will stand and crowd the bar area talking, making it very hard to get a drink. My friends and I used to go there once every couple of weeks, but the trips are fewer now. Iíd still recommend this to anyone who likes the beer and wanted to visit. It is a nice place and with the drink choices, food choices, and the merchandise area it wonít disappoint. Just be prepared to possibly run into limited parking and a crowded pub depending on the time you show up. Hope this helps.

Aweome location in the woods with a modern cabin feel. Had some beers on the deck during a beautiful day. The tour gives you a bunch of beer for your money and the prices are more than reasonable.

A very nice brewery. Natural wood everywhere. Great outdoor area for sunny days. Snacks are tasty. Large selection of good brews. Hope to return.

Stopped in here on my way to St. Bonaventure for a SLU road game. The Empty Pint is on the back right side of a large, new-looking brewery. Really attractive place. Looks like the pub has a patio for warmer months. Not worth looking too closely in January. No stools at the smallish bar, which makes sense for the space. Gets crowded, with people at tables and those milling about, waiting for tours. I didnít take a tour. Got a 4-pour (4 oz. each) sampler rack, as well as an 8 oz. beer. 14 taps; I had tried 9 of the beers before in bottles, and the other 5 consisted of 2 brewpub-only selections (Bourbon Back Burner and Du Witte), 1 brand new beer (Live), and 2 I just hadnít gotten to yet (Eurotrash and 2XMas). So that was nice. Good range of bottles to go, too. Growlers appeared to be the real bargain here. Somehow my check was $31 for the sampler, small pour, and pulled pork sandwich. Someone elseís beers must have gotten charged to my tab or else most things here are absurdly overpriced. Which is a shame, because I liked the atmosphere a lot and struck up a conversation with a hockey fan from Buffalo. And there arenít many other options in the area, so I had high hopes for this one. The service was fine, nothing special. One bartender was a bit aloof. I read in an old review that the food was good but there was literally one choice (that pulled pork, with chips), so donít get your hopes up if youíve got a group eating here. Worth a stop if youíre in this neck of the woods, but be sure to check the chalkboard and make sure your tab doesnít get jacked up. Wish I would have thought about it before I left.

4th stop on íBrew Tours 2012í. Surprised this was so crowded at 4pm on a Sat. in March. Maybe they should expand the bar area. Good selection of beers and good food. (I think they were lacking a sampler tray) The outside area should be nice when it gets warm.

I stopped by the Empty Pint while on a 4000 mile motorcycle trip with my father and I HIGHLY recommend that you visit, either as the main destination, or as a way-point. There were 14 beers on tap and plenty of bottles available for purchase. Mike and the staff were excellent and gracious and the patrons of the pub were equally as outstanding. Iíve been to a great many breweries, and this is one of the best.

It was a while back that i was here but itís a great brewery if driving through, or even as destination. Itís kind of in the middle of nowhere in a good way. A pretty standard new built manufacturing business structure gives way to a nice little nano pub with lots of their bottles to buy, growlers to fill and pints to drink. Nice people, all local it seemed. They make awesome beer so why not go to the source.

Well this place has as much ambience as a faux ski chalet located smack dab in the middle of an industrial park can have. They have 14 things on tap including a couple of things you typically only see in the large bottle. The service is typical corporate pour íem fast and slide íem down the bar. They also have a merch section next to the bar where you can also by some product. They have a surprisingly edible barbecue sandwich to be washed down by their very solid beer. The value for money is very good. I got a barbecue sandwich, chips, and a glass of beer for $9.25. Of course whatís preventing from giving a glowing review of this place is itís corporate feel. No matter how good the beer is I canít escape the feeling that Iím in Don Draperís wet dream.

Brewery tap is called Empty Pint. 14 taps of Southern Tier. Quite new place, clean but quite cozy. Big patio. Busy on Sunday. Excellent beer, friendly staff. Most of the things 100% recycled. And food was just what it supposed to be - easy and good.
